Matt- Class of 2014

Elk River, MN Photographer

I have known this guy since he was a wee little boy.  Jon and I have the cutest pictures of him from our wedding even.  I think he was 3 or 4 years old back then.  Now he is all grown up and getting ready to take on his Senior year in High School.  Crazy.

This family purchased their dream home about a year ago so it was natural to have their family portrait in the backyard.

Bethany and Henry

Elk River, MN Photographer

Sometimes the best location for a portrait session is right in your backyard…or Grandma and Grandpa’s backyard in this case.  Bethany and Henry felt right at home and after the session ended, they got to jump into the little kiddy pool.

Stella and Sawyer

Otsego, MN Photographer

The rain is hard to avoid this year, but at least it isn’t snowing still.  ;)  During this session we saw the dark clouds roll in and thought that we had 20 minutes before the storm started.  Well, it more like 5.  We moved quickly to get a few images captured, but ultimately, we rescheduled the session for later that week.   The images that you see below are a mix of both sessions.  Enjoy!

Dani- Class of 2013

Otsego, MN Photographer

As I was photographing Dani we were talking about the future and her next steps in life.  I kept thinking to myself, “This girl is going to have a HUGE impact on the world.   She isn’t going to let anything stop her”.  I wish you the best of luck in the future Dani.  Be safe and don’t forget about us back here in the States.  :)

Alexandra- 6 Months Old

Otsego, MN Photographer

This little girl is a mover and explorer.  The ground was wet during the session so I placed her in a basket to stay dry.  If it weren’t for the wet ground, she would have been showing me how fast she could move around on her own.  She is such a sweetheart.  She just smiled and smiled and smiled.  I love that!

Dorien

Otsego, MN Photographer

There is nothing like a concert in the park.  A cyclist in the park even gave him a big thumbs up as she passed by.

Izzy- 1 year old

Elk River, MN

I cannot believe that this sweet angel is already 1 year old.  She is full of spunk and likes to explore everything around her.  The Elk River Library was the perfect location for her session because she was able to move around from book to book, hide behind the shelves and play a little hide and go seek.

 

 

Thank you Elk River Great River Regional Library for allowing us to showcase your library in this session.
