Whinnie the Pooh and Milk Baths!

I couldn’t think of a better way for this little guy to celebrate his first birthday than sitting in a lineup of his Whinnie-the-Pooh stufties and than splashing around in a bucket full of milk and cheerios! This session at Cornerstone Studios as adorable and little Jackson clearly had a blast!

Windows on Minnesota Wedding Photography | Laurel and Paul

It’s funny that Laurel and Paul first bonded over a shared love of exploring new places and creating things from culinary dishes to household projects because when we first met them as prospective wedding clients, we bonded over the same things; that and a love of nordic skiing! The two said “I do” in May at Central Lutheran Church in downtown Minneapolis, it was then just a short jaunt over to the IDS tower for their reception at Windows on Minnesota. Their wedding day is just the start of their adventures!

Eagan Community Center Wedding Photograph | Brenna and Josh

Brenna and Josh were married last month at The Eagan Community Center in Eagan, Minnesota. It seems fitting to share these photos with you today, as the snow if coming down like crazy, because their wedding day was on the day of our last big snow storm. It was the classic spring snowstorm of softly falling magical snow (call me crazy, I think it’s magical!) and we were happy to find that Brenna and Josh were just as excited as we were at the end of the night to step out into that softly falling snow for some night photography!

In Home Lifestyle Newborn Photography | The Boruff Family

Two years ago we photographed Abby and John’s wedding day up in the Northwoods of Hayward Wisconsin. When their precious baby girl was born, they invited me to their home to capture her newborn photos! I love catching up with my past wedding clients and photographing their growing families! It’s the BEST kind of repeat customer I could ask for!

Here are a few of my favorite images of Abby and John’s newest addition to their family!

Someone is bored with her photo session…
