Miss Mila { 6 Month Baby Photos - Plymouth, MN }

I had the opportunity to photograph this adorable girl as as newborn and a 3-month-old and was super excited to be able to take her 6 month portraits as well. It's amazing how much she's changed in just three short months. She’s sitting on her own now, and looks like she'll be crawling very soon. Her mom always has the cutest outfits along - here are a few of my favorites from our recent session at Parker's Lake Park.

Great Locations for Photo Sessions | Thomas Lowry Park, Minneapolis, MN

I was introduced to this beautiful park last week at a family photo session. Thomas Lowry Park is located in Uptown Minneapolis just blocks from the Walker Art Center. It's a small neighborhood park but has so many pretty backdrops and great variety in a small area. It's perfect for a family with small children or anyone who might not want to do a lot of walking during their session. 

Features of the park:
  • lots of trees and flowers
  • open grassy areas
  • a beautiful vine-covered brick arbor
  • stone paths
  • benches
  • a pretty stream running through the park
  • plenty of nearby parking, and everything is within a small area

Here are a couple pictures of the park. Stay tuned for more from last week's session with Elsie and her family!

Sweet Caroline is Six! {Minneapolis Children's Photographer - Birthday Photos}

It was such a treat to photograph sweet Caroline on the morning of her 6th birthday. Her mom and I collaborated before the session to surprise Caroline with six balloons in her favorite color. And we got some great mother-daughter shots too that are my very favorites. Enjoy!

Back to School Photo Idea {Minneapolis St. Paul Children's Photography}

For many, tomorrow is the first day of school!  New shoes, new clothes, new friends and a wonderful opportunity to document the change and growth of your kids!  Whether your little one is entering kindergarten or 9th grade, the first day of school is a great time to take a special picture to celebrate the occasion.
A few months ago I shared with you my photos from my daughter's first and last day of kindergarten. This year, as she enters 1st grade, I'm planning on taking photos on the first day and last day of school again.  I've also added a little something extra to document her fun personality and remember some of her favorite things right now.  I came up with a list of 20 questions to ask her and then added some of her answers to the photo. 
This is something that could be done every year at the start of school, or every year on your child's birthday.  It will be fun to see how these answers change from year to year!
