Ellen had so many great faces! Her "Monster Face" was one of my favorites. But she was also ready to pose like a little lady ready to have her photo taken

Lifestyle children's photography at Ham Lake Park

Two year old, Ellen had a great time playing at the playground. She was happy to stop every once in a while so I could photograph her sweet smile.

Dad's loving smile just melts my heart! He had as much fun as the kids did during the lifestyle portion of our photography shoot.

A Morning with Justin • Children’s Photographer

outdoor lifestyle children's photography

When you're one, there's nothing better than bubbles.... OR - if you're a boy, a big bubble wand that's just like a stick. Being a mom myself, I'm learning that all a little boy needs to feel like a king is a STICK.

Ham Lake Park is such a great space for children to let loose and have some fun. Justin stopped for a quick photo here but he was all set to take off again!

It was a great day for outdoor family portraits in Ham Lake Park.

"Move over sis and let me in!" I can tell these two will grow up to be best friends! It was so cute to see Ellen and Justin snuggling close to have their sibling photo taken together. I just LOVE their outfits with the coordinating blues!

Even with a busy family, Mom and Dad steal away for a sweet kiss for the camera.

childrens portraits at Ham Lake park playground

Justin and Ellen had fun running off some energy at the playground!

I had such a great morning with Wendy, Matt and the kids doing a family photography session. With two kids that are two years and under, I'm sure there's never a dull moment. But this family was fun, easy going and really enjoyed each other. After taking family photos and then formal portraits of the children, we hopped over to the playground at Ham Lake Park for some lifestyle photography shots. It was wonderful to see the family having fun with their outdoor photography session! Book your family's photo session ›

Officially Official – Jacqueline Blake Photography in Print!

Jacqueline Blake Photography Business Cards OMG - I am so excited! Today I opened my mailbox and there was little brown package from Vistaprint. There was something about ordering my first box of Jacqueline Blake Photography business cards that made me feel really, truly official. Like I have arrived and I'm ready to play with the big girls. It's even my design! I was so jazzed to flex some of my graphic design muscles - diving into Adobe PhotoShop sometimes feel meeting an old friend. This business adventure is truly giving a chance do what I love and I'm grateful for all the support I have had from my family, my friends and everyone who has let me in to capture some of their family's precious moments. Today is definitively a great day!

Open for Business – Jacqueline Blake Photography

So here it is... The beginning of Jacqueline Blake Photography. Right now it's a "low-fi start-up" which means one camera, one backdrop, two lights, a tri-pod and a great deal of heart and high hopes. I have a small studio in my unfinished basement that with any luck, will grow into a polished and professional portrait business. How did it all start? Before switching my college focus to web design, I was majoring in photography. I was accepted to the Art Institute of Chicago but a few weeks before leaving for school I met a guy who I fell head over heels for. I only lasted a month in Chicago... I had to come home to him. I didn't have a back-up plan for a photography degree in MN so I quickly decided to go to school for graphic and web design. That guy I fell for asked me to marry him a of couple years later and now we are a happy family of four living in Ham Lake. I've had a successful career as a web designer/developer and digital marketer but have always had the art of photography tugging at my heart. So now it's time to follow my heart back to the beginning... And start a new adventure! Wish me luck!
