Fall Family Session

How beautiful is this family? I have been lucky enough to be their photographer since mom and dad got married! We had the perfect fall day and I couldn’t be happier with the mood and light:

Fall Portrait Fundraiser at Lost Creek Ranch

Every year I dedicate one day to photographing families and individuals on location at Lost Creek Ranch in Beldenville WI (about 45 mins east of St Paul). 1oo% of the $50 session fee is donate to the ranch (a 501(c)3 non profit horse rescue). Here are some favorite shots from this years shoot:

Stillwater Family Photo Session

Love the fact that Cathy took time out of her busy family and work life to schedule a session of her beautiful daughters! Aren’t they beautiful?



It has been so much fun watching little Emerson grow over the past year- we just did her One Year session and of course had to have a few of big sis in there!


The Many Faces of Two

No “Terrible Twos” around here! Just a pair of adorable two year old cousins…

In the Country…

There is no better place for a fall family photo session than in the country! Rochelle was right at home with her sweet mares and the men in her lifer- we really captured what is most important to her in this session. Check out her cute little cowboy!
