You guys I am seriously drooling over these images of Jess & Andrew from last night!  We headed to my “secret park” that I like to only take my clients to, Yes there are a few places I keep to myself..ha ha!  It’s somewhat close to Minneapolis, okay can you guess where…LOL  Anyway, I haven’t done an engagement session there yet this year and this place never disappoints!  We had absolutely gorgeous light and a beautiful flowering shrub,  I mean really nature couldn’t do much better for us!  Plus I had the most amazing couple!  I’m pretty sure Jess was a fashion runway model in her former life and her connection with Andrew was remarkable.  You can just see the love oozing out of these two.  So excited to capture their wedding this fall.  For now, here is a peek at their gorgeous engagement photos!

I really enjoyed taking newborn photos of miss Kenzie this morning.  We had the perfect overcast light coming in my Minneapolis, MN studio this morning too.  It was so hard for me just to pick a few images to share because I loved so many of them.  Kenzie had the perfect little fingers and toes and I loved how we captured that today in her session.  Her skin and dark hair looked perfect on these soft creams and blush pink!  I’m also very excited because I get to see Kenzie back at 6 & 12 months as well!!

Sometimes I just have to pinch myself when it comes to how lucky I am with finding the most amazing couples!  Amy and Matt had their wedding ceremony at the gorgeous Fort Snelling Chapel. Matt is a fighter pilot for the United States Air Force and I felt so blessed to capture this amazing military wedding. Thank you for your service Matt! In addition to starting their life together as husband and wife, they also are starting out a new life together in Japan. Matt and Amy were stationed there just a few weeks after their big day in January 2015. We spent the majority of their wedding day taking photos at their gorgeous wedding reception location the Christos Union Depot in St. Paul. It was such a beautiful canvas for their photos.

I have to also mention that I was practically drooling over Amy’s dress!!! I kid you not, I had a dream just a few weeks before how I had wished I could photograph a bride in a 3/4 sleeve lace dress and then when I show up to Amy’s hotel room I about died and gone to heaven. She of course, looked absolutely stunning in it! Flutter Boutique in Minneapolis did an impeccable job of customizing this gorgeous Leanne Marshall’s Heloise dress for Amy. Matt and three of his groomsmen wore their air force mess dress, which is navy with all sorts of bells and whistles that I don’t really understand. But they looked sharp! All the other groomsmen wore Michael Kors suits.

My favorite moment of the day was after Matt & Amy were pronounced husband and wife and they walked (and kissed!) under the saber arch. Seriously, such a cool moment (my first time experiencing it) and such a great representation of what the military stands for. I couldn’t have asked for a more sweeter couple and I wish you all the best on your new adventure together in life!

Every year I look forward to my session with Hannie! This year we went to the Lyndale Peace Garden in Minneapolis for her session.  She is a fun and spunky little 6 year old but we go back quite a few years now, ha!  This year our conversation focused around her school teachers and of course the movie Frozen!  She reminds me so much of my own little girls and I love capturing portraits of her sweet little face that show her adorable personality!  This session totally captures her perfectly!
