Happy 4th! Now Booking – Holiday Session | Minot, ND Photographer

Family, Sessions, styled

We got out on a rainy day to capture these beautiful images of dad that everyone will cherish forever. I know how much dad’s hate picture day and this one left saying, “That’s the fastest picture session I’ve ever had! Just how I like it!” and of course they are in love with these images!

Featured: Snap Love Grow {New Life}

Learning

This evening, I clicked on the Snap Love Grow post to see who had been featured for their latest prompt {New Life} and as I scroll down, I see this image:

I’m going to be real legit with you guys, I had no idea what to do with myself I was so excited. This is such an honor and I am so over the moon to have been featured on this site where the work is always top notch and so inspiring. I am filled with pride and happiness and feel so driven to keep pushing myself to work harder for my clients to create art.

I was also featured recently at Cozy Clicks – Photo Feature: Red White and Blue

E’s Hero aka Daddy

Sessions

Our frequent flyer, E, is back. She’s always such a character and her parents are so sweet that I always love when it’s E’s turn in front of the camera even when she outright refuses (no is her favorite word) to pose for us! She did love getting to hang out with daddy this time and trying on his boots!

A for Army Brat

Sessions

This is probably the LAST set of pictures from this little girl before she moves away on her next big adventure.

I’m so sad to see this family go because A’s mommy is just awesome, A is so fun and so adorable, and A’s daddy? Well he’s a big softy for his little girl.

This session is the first from my military brat mini sessions and I think it perfectly captures the spirit of the military child.

Daddy and Us!

Sessions

Father’s Day is coming up soon and today I debut my first mini for the season! This family was a ton of fun and a mixture of cultures as mom hails locally from Belgium and dad is Italian! He’s from Rome so we may run into him on our trip this July!

Although brother was a little apprehensive, sister was all in right away, and dad was a character! He got both of the littles laughing and engaged and he was pretty expressive himself! I had a great time shooting in the woods for this location and it looks like such a storybook location, I’m so in love with it!

The Angry One Smiles!

Sessions

The last time we saw this little one, it was Easter! Little A is one tough customer when it comes to getting her picture taken as she really, really likes to scowl. The good news is, though, that we got a ton of laughs from her when her parents came over to celebrate her birthday!

Tomorrow I’ll share little A’s “cake smash” but until then, enjoy this smiling little baby!

Wild Child M does Easter

Sessions

The last time we saw this wild child, he was celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with us! We ran around the park, threw rocks into the pond, and played our hearts out! My first few clients were friends, but M’s family became friends after their first session. They’ve invited the Mess Maker family into their homes for a giant Easter Eggstravaganza this weekend and when you’re an ocean away from family, all you want for the holidays are open arms and good food. Thank you so much to this wild family not only for coming out for photos but for opening their home to us in celebration of Easter!
