little fighter

this little guy is truly a blessing. he had a rough start to his little life but came through everything with flying colors. he has some awesome parents and a great support system that helped him every step of the way. i was honored to be able to provide them with their first photo shoot for their little man. and to be able to capture some of those little details that are so important to capture when they are so small.

just loving this sweet expression.

he didn't want to miss a moment of the action. but luckily we snuck in a few snoozers...

this has to be one of my favorites. at first what you see is ten tiny toes...but if you look a little closer you'll see that the little guy has a smile on his face. guess he was having a good time :]

what fun!

that's all i can say, so much fun. i thoroughly enjoyed following these kiddos around and as an added bonus we were surrounded by all kinds of interesting buses, pumpkins and gardens ...oh my!
the one time it is okay to stick your head out a school bus window.
love her style – bright colors all the way.
such sweet expressions.

she was truly in her element climbing trees with no fear. not too many people can look this at ease high in the tree tops.
can you say father and daughter. wow. love this shot.

thanks guys for a fun saturday afternoon!

tough cookie

this little miss braved one of the coldest days in october to get her pictures taken. to let you know just how cold...the day before it snowed almost 3 inches! but she handled it like a true minnesotan and came through smiling! even if we had to take a break midway for a quick warm up in the car, she was a trooper. i just love her sweet expressions, even when she is not smiling she is just a doll. i hope mom and dad enjoyed them too!
how can you not love those eyes!

so sweet, holding on to dad's leg.

so that's who took my pictures...

love this family one. even though it's not your traditional family portrait...everyone is smiling!
