Wintertime Finally

I have been enjoying looking outside at the snow this last month. I almost feel spoiled by it this year since last year was just horrible without it. Ahhh, a wonderful Minnesota winter at last!

The Little Engine That Could

I saw this train engine today and just had to stop and shoot it. I was in love with the bright orange against the amazing blue sky today.

Christmas Light Fun

So fun to play with Christmas lights. I should do this every year with my kids, it is so fun for them and I love to see what I can create as well. I am still loving the Gray Velvet action from The CoffeeShop Blog.

Christmas Flowers

My husband loves me. That is all. Nothing beats flowers for Christmas!

Chasing After my Favorite Toddler

I love little ones like this. Every moment they are doing something completely different and they have a different expression. Today was literally no different. What a fun little girl!

I love Christmas lights and Christmas tree decorations. I have been experimenting with helping the lights be more star like. I love the effect, so pretty! Soon I will really need to play with the bokeh. Christmas bokeh is just soooo amazing!

The "M" Family - Sartell Family Photography

The "M" Family along with the "F" Family came together for a fun family shoot on a beautiful day in November. While we had a handful of bitterly cold days in November,indeed there were a few days that really were amazing and this was definitely one of them. I met them at one of my favorite places in Sartell. It is a park that many don't even realize is there and it is fantastic for shooting at. Complete privacy and lots of scenes. I love it. I enjoyed meeting the "M" family and look forward to more opportunities to photograph their family. They are really wonderful!
