Brainerd Family Photography Portrait Session

There is nothing I love more than photographing a previous wedding couple once they have a sweet little family. Anne and Cory were married in a colorful and perfectly intimate sized wedding in my studio in 2015 and now they have an adorable little guy. He gave me quite the run for my money trying to catch a few smiles, but I love how they turned out.  (:

Halloween Spooks Shoot | Brainerd Family Photographer

Sometimes I get to do something a little extra fun and a little extra special!  My sister put out the idea of doing a halloween portrait session and it turned out way better than I could have ever imagined...I could stare at her gouly family all day.  Melissa wore a dress from my vintage wedding gown collection, Audrey's witch costume base was our great-grandmother's dress, Melissa made Spencer's mummy costume out of old lace and cheesecloth (YES, REALLY - I KNOW - AMAZING!!), Chloe wore a flower girl dress I had left from a shoot and Tucker and Todd's costumes were mixes of store bought and made.  My sister is also a super talented hair and makeup artist - hence the amazeballs hairdos and faces.  ENJOY our SPOOKS shoot!  Gorgeous bouquets by Bloom Designs. 

Spring Easter Portraits with Bunnies!

I am about to fill the blog with photos of sweet little faces and bunnies so get ready to swoon over adorableness!  How cute are these girls and their beautiful mom?!?!  And little Eva has always been pretty held back with her smiles for me...I guess I just need a bunny at every session!  I am lucky enough to have a sister and sweet nieces who lent their beloved pets for a few photo sessions.

Baby Graham | Brainerd, MN Newborn Photography

I feel so fortunate to often photograph the lives of two people long after their engagement and wedding.  It seems Jameson's newborn milestones were happening just yesterday and now he has the sweetest baby brother.  I don't often photograph newborn sessions as I am not as great at the beautiful super-posed newborn shots as other photographers are, but there is still something that I absolutely love in photographing a family with their new baby.  It seems like I could use a few more in my life.  ;)  Congratulations Adam and Liz on creating another adorable son!
