Birthday Boy – Family Session | Minot, ND Photographer

Family, Sessions

This little guy was turning one and we celebrated with some time at the playground, balloons, and family pictures! This family was a dream to work with despite me making fun of them for how silly they were being to get little man’s attention! I love celebrating milestones with families like this and in 10, 20, 30 years they will have memories of little man to look back on and be thankful! I’m so glad I can help preserve these memories!

Lifestyle – Athenian Playground

Journey, Mess Maker J

Baby J is back again, this time in a classic lifestyle session, albiet in a glamorous location. I wanted to share this because this is the type of momtography we should all be working towards not because of quality but because of life.

We take our kids to the playgrounds so often that we forget how important it is to document their play. It doesn’t matter if the sun is super harsh (seriously could the shadows be any sharper?! No!), find a touch of shade or just embrace it because–the moment is more important. Remember that. The moment is paramount. You can create gorgeous portraits in perfect settings, sure, but you can’t capture these memories without embracing the imperfections of light and color casts.

So take pictures at the playground! Capture these moments, they don’t last forever!
