Monticello High School Senior Photos

Once upon a time, a photographer thought taking pictures of babies was the best ever.  She adamantly believed she would never ever enjoy photographing big kids (ahem, total adults) as much as she loved taking pictures of all the babies.   She MIGHT have been wrong.

When Pants No Longer Fit

 Today, let’s choose to be thrilled with our bodies. I am deciding to be grateful for splendidly functioning shoulders and less-than-perfect-but-not-terrible knees.  And, while my body displays marks of motherhood, I would give my body tenfold for these children if required. Merely by existing, your body performs countless processes beyond our comprehension. . . Forget about old pants and scale numbers. Be healthy, walk around, and find peace with your body – despite imperfections.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! [From a Snow-less MN]

"Simplify the Holidays" they say.

Everywhere I turn, a well-intentioned, serene, and wise individual reminds me of the importance of simplifying this holiday season.  Yet, everywhere I turn, I am given no practical suggestions.

Thank you, World.

4 Things to Write in a Wedding Card

I routinely crumble under this pressure.  My cards typically say, “We are so happy for you! Best wishes! We would love to have you over for dinner sometime! We love you!” Occasionally, I tone down the exclamation points, but generally not. I over compensate for my lack poetic advice with intense emotion about dinner.

Family Photos | Buffalo, MN Lifestyle Photography

My reflection led me right to my biggest fear. What if I am so excited to see them, I will forget about taking pictures and just talk about which station is now airing Mindy Project and who the Gilmore Girls should end up with? This is a real concern.  My actual nightmare is an entire photo session of no photos.  How will I explain that to my loved ones who trusted me to photograph their story? Will they hate me forever? How embarrassing!

My Social Media Secret

Recently, a wise woman of a different generation told a group of us mamas how lucky we are to have so much information at our fingertips.  In her day, they just had to guess.  I looked around the table and saw beautiful mothers giving parenting all they have, and with tears in their eyes.  I countered with the idea, that while often helpful, this information might be suffocating us all.

Jillian's Senior Photos | Twin Cities, MN Lifestyle Photography

Someday, my children will be seniors and I will stare longingly at them as they pose for senior photos and think about when I used to squeeze their cheeks (for real) and stare at them as they slept (because sleeping babies are the best babies).  I simply cannot handle such a bizarre thought.  My children will never be seniors.  We will be one little happy family stalled out in the toddler years FOREVER.  (Although, if someday they can toilet themselves, that’d be fine.)

We opted to do her family photos in her parent's back yard in Buffalo, MN.  I adore when the location of a photo shoot is personal.  Someday, when they look at Tenley's one-year portraits, they will talk about grandma's chair.  When they look back to photos of their family at the park, they will be flooded with wonderful memories of summer afternoons.  I'm nostalgic just thinking about it.
