Minnesota Farm Senior photos- Mikayla Miller

Senior photos all around farms, creeks, and trails. i was in absolute heaven around Red Wing and Goodhue Minnesota. 

Mikayla is an absolute stunning girl and i'm so blessed to have spent some time with her and her family! they had all the outfits perfectly picked out, locations they thought would be best and it was such an adventure! (great outtake photos were taken too!) but here's more than a few of my favorites. 


the first one was at the last location, but one of my absolute favorites from the day. long grass, blue dress and boots? yup, couldn't go wrong!


our first location was this lovely creek and farm area they had scoped out and it was perfect! we started with family photos, and then Mikayla and her sisters too! what could bring more giggles than a cold creek and us all almost falling over a few times. Mikayla (and her family too!) were such troopers... standing, and kneeling in the cold water until i thought we got some great shots! 


even though these girls have such bubbly happy personalities, they all pulled off this serious look and it's one i'm having printed too! 



 ah! this pink dress was gorgeous on you! we also had a few adventures here too! we walked into the pasture with the cows and pony and they came over by us and watched the entire time. yes i definitely have some photographs of this. 


onto the trails, and green! we don't get this much green down here, so of COURSE i was loving every moment. 


fun-unique-minnesota-photosunique-senior-posesa few more of my absolute favorites for the day.. but i feel like i've said that a lot. i can't help it. You absolutely rocked this photo shoot! serious, laughing, smiling.. you can pull off them all in photos!

why not one more adventure? luckily dad was there to help out and get a ladder. I wish i would've recorded this too. mom and dad encouraging this craziness, and getting Mikayla to climb up! what fun photos to cherish!

You are absolutely beautiful both inside and out, and i'm so glad we were able to spend the evening together getting some fun and fabulous photographs! Joy and family- you made the entire day so fun! so prepared and planned out, i couldn't have asked for more! i hope you enjoy these photographs and never forget the adventure of the day! congratulations Mikayla! 


Alamogordo, New Mexico hot air balloon invitational- Hansen Family 

Such a beautiful morning at white sands as we waited for hot air balloons to launch. unfortunately there were so many people that we had a short amount of time to get some photographs, but i think we got some beautiful moments! the kids all did so good even though they wanted to explore, lots of laughing and hugging and I'm so happy we were able to capture those! 

below is one of my favorites! real smiles, and love. 
i let them do one silly face, and it turned out so good! it still makes me laugh.. can't tell they're related.. they're all doing the same face! and then even when their parents kissed, they were all smiles. adorable.
the outfits were absolutely perfect. 
another one of my favorites of the kids hugging. all giggles.
i told the girls to give him a kiss, he said he didn't want it, but you can tell he really loves his sisters :) 
a beautiful family, both inside and out
we only had about 15 minutes to shoot, but the kids cooperated, had fun and i got bossy ;) i love these images, and think i should probably print one for my office too now that i live so close to this location! Thank you for letting me photograph your family, i'm truly blessed to be where i am and to have already met such wonderful people! 

Minnesota farm boys- Levi and Jacob

Happy Friday! whew! i'm finally back home for a couple days before i venture out, and there's so many things to share with you! 

when i was in Minnesota this last time, i had the opportunity to see one of my dearest friends, Michelle and photograph her two boys! She had such a cute idea, got them in their overalls, cute hats, and even used a shelf that her husband had made for the house. SO cute. 


Michelle and Jeff were behind the scenes making them laugh like crazy. i couldn't stop snapping! and Levi fixed his hat with no direction and looked perfect. 

ha i had to include this one of levi. he has some wonderful facial expressions! 

they are absolutely adorable! 

just one i had to show of sweet jacob crying. one of my faves even with those tears. he was done here, but did So good!

and levi helping him feel better:) what sweet brothers

 it's always such a blessing to photograph a family that i truly love and get to catch up with friends from school. It's a wonderful way to see their boys grow, see their lovely home and mostly just laugh and enjoy one another. (and maybe get some DQ after we're finished) 

More than you know Matthees family, you bring such joy to my heart! 


Hok-si-la, Lake City- Dicke Family

i absolutely adore this family. i'm always so happy when i get to see sweet babies grow and boy, Connor just has the best personality that has really started to shine! i can't believe he's one already though! Kristina had a great idea of heading out to Hok-si-La beach in Lake City to capture these and some of my favorites!

Although Alex will say he's not pumped about photos, or shopping for clothes for photos... you can't tell. especially in the photo below. how he's looking at his son is so precious.
Connor.. ahhh too adorable! love his little looks. 
Kristina, you look absolutely stunning and so happy with your two boys! 
we got some Connor and mama time in, lots of kisses and giggles :)
Kristina, you were brilliant when thinking about this location! Hok-si-La beach in Lake City ended up being perfect even with mayflies that day. i can't wait to print a few for my office too of your lovely family! 

Las Vegas Gilcrease Orchard- Primas Family

i am unbelievably blessed to photograph such amazing families. i was able to photograph these cuties last summer and now beautiful Kristie is almost due with their third baby! They decided they wanted a place that still had tons of gorgeous green (which is a little more tough to find in vegas) and not shoot at the same place we did last year. She is a genius. i LOVED shooting here. we got there nice and early and the sun was perfect!
here's a few of my faves! 

look how adorable the sibling duo is! 
we even snuck in a few maternity shots, and i'm SO happy we did, she's one hot mama. 
I so enjoyed our time together and seriously adore these two. They're such a beautiful couple inside and out. 
Something that made this shoot so special was, i was having such a difficult couple of days; but after the shoot i joined them to pick some veggies and fruit and being around such God-fearing inspiring people lifted me up and made my entire week. Thank you guys! you're more of a blessing than you even know :)
