Looking Like Christmas – Children’s Portraits

Christmas Mini Photo Session - Children's Photographer in Ham Lake

Soon to be four year old Lexi was so sweet! She couldn't wait to have her photo taken.

Michael is a spunky two year old and was a lot of fun! He loved playing with his fire truck and my studio's model train.

This fall, I had the opportunity to photograph the Glaser family from Ramsey, MN. Doug had contacted me a few weeks earlier to book the photo session as a surprise birthday present for his wife. How fun! BTW - Awesome idea for you guys out there. I'm giving Doug serious kudos for being so thoughtful!

These brothers had a lot of fun together and you could tell they are a close knit family. Even by the end of a two hour photography session, they were still cracking jokes and having a great time!

We had some time to steal Mom & Dad away for a few portraits of just themselves. They really went together... Just like peas and carrots! Thanks guys, for letting me hang with the family for a few hours. Enjoy the rest of your fall together. PS - Happy birthday, Jennifer! I hope you enjoyed your gift!

engagement, portrait, wedding photographer, stillwater, ham lake, minneapolis mn

Classic story: Boy meets girl. They fall in love. He asks. She says YES! I love that story... Weddings and engagements are so near and dear to me. Especially when the bride is a friend!

Sneaking in for a kiss. You wouldn't think a photographer was ten feet away, near the Stillwater Bridge.

Meet Gus! He is a spunky Puggle puppy and Mitch and Kim's furbabby. I don't think Gus is invited to the wedding but I think he'd look pretty cute in a pup tux!

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.

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!

"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!

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 ›
