Happy Holidays

Just an FYI, I will be on vacation Dec 8-19 and not taking sessions until January.  If you place an order while I'm gone, I will submit it when I return. 

Watch for specials coming up for the new year!

sam & gen ~ fargo natural light photography

Taking pictures of this family was so much fun!  I have photographed Sam & Gen before, but its been quite some time.  I could hardly even recognize them.  We got some very fun pictures at their session and here are just a few quick little previews :)

Xan & Ali~ fargo child photographer

I seldom take time out specifically to take pictures of my own kids.  However, I thought today might be a good day to try and get some for our own kids.  Of course, being a typical mom and not really thinking like a photographer I tried to do everything all at once.  Ran to get haircuts, then ran to the mall to get new outfits, quick lunch, then went to the park for pictures.  Well, yes, thats a bit much for one day and expect the kids to sit still for pictures.  My recommendation, do haircuts a few days before, go without the kids to the mall, and bring them for pictures right before lunch so you can use that as a bribe ;)

Anyway, we did get a few great pictures.  We also got a lot of funny ones (click on the image to see it larger.)  Here you go!!

fall sessions ~ fargo outdoor photography

Here are a few previews from sessions last week.  I'm still catching up with proofing, so if you are still waiting please be patient with me (please allow 5 business days for proofing, but please feel free to email me if you REALLY can't wait a moment longer to see a preview!!)

More to come in the next couple days.  I'm also pretty booked until the new year, so if you still need to setup a session for Christmas cards please call me ASAP.  I have about six openings left this year.

rockstars ~ fargo children's photography

These two are a couple of my most photographed kiddos & I've been photographing them both since birth.  I happen to think they are extremely cute.  They were such rockstars during their session during a visit from St. Cloud last weekend.  Well yes, we do share some DNA, but I'm sure I'm not biased about how awesome my niece and nephew are :)  I'll be putting more up on facebook too, so be sure to check there.  We got some really awesome pictures!!

Women's Showcase 2010

This Saturday is Women's Showcase at the FargoDome.  I'll be there with a booth on the main floor across from Hair Success.  Stop by and tell us you're a blog reader to get a special gift.  I'll also be doing a seminar called "A Day in the Life" at 3:00pm so be sure to stop by for that as well.  Hope to see you there!

[sweet]pea soup ~ moorhead family photography

The fog was as thick as pea soup but this little girl was a total sweetpea!  I really enjoyed talking with her parents,  I met them a couple years ago at a barn-raising party when they moved to town as new missionaries.  Definately a very blessed family with this little addition!

trenton ~ fargo outdoor photography

I've had to pleasure of photographing this little guy fairly regularly since he was born.  But its been a few months since I've seen him and WOW has he ever grown!  He's a little man now :)  We had lots of fun outside for pictures today (yes, the fog was super thick, but that didn't stop us.)  Here's just one quick preview as a teaser while I finish proofing.  More to come later.

Fall Family Mini-Sessions

I have a very busy schedule this fall but with the colors of the leaves and pretty nice weather we've been having, I wanted to open up a couple dates to get a few more families for their holiday pictures. These mini-sessions will be like my regular sessions but limited by time.  They all include web gallery images in color, black & white, and vintage.  And for the first time you'll also get a CD with your blog-ready proof images.  I will probably also have one Saturday in November for more mini-sessions, but I'm sure the beautiful leaves will be gone by then.  Call right away to get first pick of available times!

fargo family photography

You're probably starting to recognize the little guy in this picture as I've been photographing him regularly since he was born.  Little Joshua certain has his own personality and he is so absolutely loveable.  As are his parents who dote on him endlessly.  We did pictures a few weeks ago down at the park and got a ton of amazing shots, I just like this one because you can see his toes :)

carrie & joe ~ dilworth wedding photography

We got so many great shots today so its hard to just narrow it down to a couple to share on the blog.  But these were so fun I knew these had to be in the first batch :)  Also check out my facebook fan page to see more!

The bride dyed the guys' socks and underwear pink :)  F-U-N!

baby m ~ fargo on location newborn photography

Oh, this little sweetie pie is only nine days old in these pictures. She was sound asleep then we moved her around just a bit too much, BUT it made for some absolutely fantastic wide awake pictures! What a cutie girl! 
Oh yes, and as an FYI, this hat is another one of my designs, it was intended to have pompoms on it but I didn't get it finished yet LOL. If you're looking for cute hats like this let me know, they are super quick & easy to make!

Kirk & Stacy ~ Fargo Wedding Photojournalism

And a couple quick previews from yesterday as I work on editing the rest.  Love, love, love that we had great weather and and the wedding was absolutely perfect :)

tammy & kory ~ fargo wedding photography

This must have been one of my most favorite weddings I've photographed.  This couple (their whole wedding party and all the family) were just so fun to be around, silly & relaxed, yet organized and totally unique.  Their pastor did a wonderful service that was just perfect for these two.  I really had a great time and their portraits turned out absolutely beautiful.

Jake & Jack ~ Fargo-Moorhead Photography

These two seriously could not be any cuter.  I've done big brother's pictures before and was really happy to meet the little guy for his one-year pictures :)  They are so extremely well behaved and absolutely adorable!

Oh, handsome boys ~ Fargo Family Photographer

These little guys were such sweethearts.  We were able to get a nice day to do pictures a few weeks ago and they turned out great.  I just love this family, I look forward to getting to know them better :)

super soren ~ fargo natural light photography

Soren was a super easy kid to take  his pictures.  Seriously, I've had good luck with kiddos lately!  I think his whole session including a change in location only took around a half hour!  I suppose it helps that he's pretty photogenic!  Here's a couple sneak peaks.

terrific trio ~ fargo natural light photography

Ok, this session for three kiddos took less than 20 minutes.  They were all SO photogenic and very, very good listeners.  We got a ton of really great pictures and I cannot wait to finish proofing.  In the meantime here’s a few sneak peaks (unedited, looks like they might need a little tweeking yet!!)

tiny twinsies ~ fargo newborn photographer

These little guys came several weeks early and I visited the one little guy at the NICU a couple times.  Now they are home together and just as sweet as can be!  More to come on Facebook so be sure to sign up as a fan!

homecoming ~ fargo family photography

I had the pleasure of photographing the homecoming of a solider this weekend.  It was a wonderful experience for me and I am glad I was able to provide this service for the family.
