This was one of my funnest photo session of 2017! Angelika got in touch with me because her birthday was coming up and her husband, stationed in Korea would be on leave for a visit. I was exited to hear that she was looking for a 40th birthday, adult smash cake! She had several ideas for photos of her and her husband for before and during her smash cake. The couple met me at Ham Lake Park with balloons, decorations, a bright pink tutu, wine and of course, a cake! We had a blast taking pictures by the lake and in the woods. We got a lot of great photos and wrapped up our photography session with cake all over Angelika’s face! Thank you, Angelika for letting me celebrate your birthday with you! I have I have a 40th in a few years. We’ll see if I find myself on the other side of the camera! LOL

Two year old, Morgan came to my Ham Lake photography studio her Valentine’s Day photos. We had fun with photo props and got some great smiles. It’s so much fun when I get to see clients grow. I’ve been photographing Morgan since her Fourth of July themed First Birthday Cake Smash. It was great seeing her in my photo studio again!
Time flies by so quickly, especially when children are small. Having seasonal photos taken every year is a great way to remember each new stage.

Nine month old, Baby Maggie came to my Ham Lake photography studio for some super sweet Valentine’s Day photos. We had fun with photo props and even captured some great milestone portraits. It’s so much fun when I get to see clients grow. I photographed Maggie and her family at Ham Lake Park in September. It was great seeing her in my photo studio this time! I hope to see this little sweetheart again soon! Maybe for first birthday milestone photos AND a FUN CAKE SMASH? ;o)

Here is Sweet Little Liam! He came to our photography studio in Ham Lake with his proud mama and hockey dad. His newborn photography session included a baby-sized hockey stick and Dad’s skates. I love using parents’ interests as newborn photo props. When a baby is born, moms and dads are filled with so many hopes and dreams for them. Capturing a piece of that in one of Baby’s first photos is simply heartwarming. I hope to see Baby Liam as he grows! Maybe a first birthday cake smash? ;o)

Meet newborn twins, Leo and Violet from Big Lake. These sweet little babies rocked their newborn session with some adorable photos together and even more on their own.  Fun fact! They both enjoy the show Modern Family – LOL! Their mom said that it calms them down. (•smile) Leo and Violet have two older sisters so I’m sure having some chill time is appreciated by all. Before we know it, these precious newborns will be tearing around with their siblings. So much fun! I sure hope to see them back at my studio for one year photos and maybe even a smash cake. :o)

I kicked off my newly redesigned portrait photography studio with a sweet newborn session with Baby Brett. Brett was eleven days new when he came to my studio in Ham Lake. He was such an easy going baby and a lot of fun to photograph. And OH – did this little boy have hair! It was absolutely adorable! We got some wonderful newborn portraits and I can’t wait to see Baby Brett as he grows!

I’ve known Jennifer and Troy for several years now. They’re a great couple and you can tell how much they love each other and how close they are with their daughter, Tara. I finally got to meet Tara at their photo session. Tara was born with a heart condition and currently uses an LVAD to keep her heart pumping. She is waiting for a heart transplant and will hopefully get one soon.
I’m glad to have gotten to meet Tara and I had a lot of fun taking the Townsend’s family photos.
