Happy Wednesday

Published October 23, 2013 in fun stuff, Just some Chat!, my life

I think I am finding these blog posts to be somewhat therapeutic. I find as I sit at my computer planning to do some proofing/editing, my mind immediately begins thinking about what I should post on the blog. Maybe I am just enjoying sharing a little of my crazy world with all of you, or maybe I am just stalling before I get into the edit zone. Either way, its all good. The studio has been wonderfully busy, my family is ALWAYS busy, we have been remodeling some bedrooms at home, that has been fun and creative. Oh! Maybe you […]

Minnesota Weather

Published October 22, 2013 in fun stuff, Just some Chat!, my life

When did I become a complainer? I have always loved the season changes in Minnesota. I am a forever true Minnesota girl. But I have notice lately, I am discontent with the weather. Something of which I have zero control. Why? The seasons are still fun, but, somewhere along the way, I have come to believe they should change on MY schedule. Feeling a little convicted about that right now… Personal goal for this brisk week, be content. Find joy in my current circumstances and be thankful for the blessings that present themselves daily in my life. Enjoy a Beautiful […]

Today is my annual Lil’ Pumpkin Portraits at the Pleasant Valley Orchard. Hmmph. Its raining. Again. So, here I sit at my computer typing a long over due blog post. Two of my three morning sessions rescheduled, and one opted to come into the studio. Will have to wait and see what the afternoon brings for the rest of my sessions. Feeling very thankful to my husband for bringing me coffee. So, I really do like rain and all the various weather we get here in Minnesota, but seriously… I think it rains nearly every year on this event. The […]

Talia { 8 days new } Newborn Photographer, Lindstrom MN

Published August 26, 2013 in baby, Newborn

Newborn. My definition would include the words squishy, snuggly, soft, gentle, tender, perfect. I love babies. I really love when parents bring me their sweet little treasures to be photographed and be part of their lifetime memories. Newborn portraits are lifetime artwork for your home. All that to introduce you to sweet Talia. Such a peanut. Mom and dad promise me she sleeps all day long and were ready for a smooth going session. As they sat on the couch, relaxed and watched me work, what they then kept saying is, “really…at home she just sleeps! We have never seen […]

Yesterday my daughter wanted to go do something, and we came up with take the dog hiking (our rat terrier thinks she is part mountain goat) 🙂 Was a beautiful day, and our location, couldn’t have been lovelier.
