Winter doldrums.

Published March 4, 2015 in my life

Sigh. Anyone else get a little stir crazy this time of year? I am quite done with snow, except maybe the Snow Mountain Flower above. I am so ready for spring to arrive. Not just the stated date. The actual event. Warmer air. Sunshine. Signs of green. Buds on the trees. The smell that is just spring. I think we are close, but not quite there. These are the times my God is testing my patience. Well. What would be testing my patience if I had any. Maybe this is the time he is developing that trait in me. I […]

Faelynn |newborn { lindstrom mn }

Published September 4, 2014 in Family, fun stuff, girls, my life, Newborn

OOOOOOH sweet squishy newborn goodness! Is it possible for this lovely newbie to be anymore stunning? This family is dear to my heart. Some years ago, it all started with a mom & daughters session. We hit it right off. You know how sometimes you meet people and they are just right in your wheelhouse of life? We shared just the right amounts of crazy, quirky and funny. I was honored to later photograph the family wedding, senior portraits, newborn baby, and now newborn grandbaby for this family. This is a perfect reflection of what I want to do. I […]

The legacy of a prayer warrior.

Published January 19, 2014 in Family, my life

Yesterday family from all across the nation gathered in the little town of Pine River MN. The purpose? A celebration of life service. Some families just have that something special that makes them unique. As our many family members and friends crowded into the little church, I looked around and saw what I believe would make grandma proud. I saw hugs, smiles, laughter. I heard the exchange of memories from years gone by (many of which included references to scrabble games and home made bread). With 27 grandkids in the family, plus a multitude of great and great great grands, […]

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 […]

Apple Orchard Day

Published October 19, 2013 in fun stuff, Just some Chat!, my life

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 […]
