Ice Castles MN Engagement Photography | Shawn and Erica

A few weeks ago I met up with Shawn and Erica at the Ice Castles Minnesota in downtown Stillwater to take some photos for their save the date announcements. Shawn is my awesome cousin and he couldn't have found a better person then Erica to bring into the family. She is perfect for him and fits right in! We can't wait for her to officially join the family next January!

The two are avid hockey fans and attend as many Wild games as they can. Shawn even popped the question at a Wild game sitting in prime seats right behind the Wild bench. They knew they wanted ice and hockey in their engagement pictures and the ice castles set the perfect scene. Here are a few of my favorite shots from tour session! Notice how their jerseys spell out 2018? How cool is that?

Teddy Bear Park Family Photography | Eliza Turns One!

About a year ago I had the pleasure of shooting miss Eliza's newborn photos in her home, I'm still in love with this newborn session and the beautiful images that I made with Eliza and her family that day. Well, this past weekend, I got to see just how much little Eliza has grown in a year when I met up with her family at Teddy Bear Park in Stillwater, Minnesota for her one year photo session. It was a bright sunny day in downtown Stillwater and the perfect location for the little one year old who had just discovered that morning how much she loves her teddy bear! Seriously, the cutest thing. Here are a few of my favorite images from our session. This little ray of sunshine is sure to brighten your rainy Friday afternoon!
