Rodriguez Family 2020

Always an adventure taking this family’s pictures — we explored a bit on Brighton Beach (Lester River Bridge) this time, and I freely admit I almost fell in the water a couple times. Those rocks can be tricky, at least while wearing flip-flops!

Baby Zelda

This beautiful baby girl didn’t want to sleep much for her session, but that just means we got to see those gorgeous blue eyes more Who could complain about that?

Baby Everly

Welcome to the world, Everly! This little girl was so calm, and loved being held by mommy and daddy (I mean, what baby doesn’t?). Bryson’s already such a good big brother, he was so gentle and sweet with her, and my heart melted so much during this session <3

Emily Jade

I brought this lovely young lady to a nearby sunflower field for some impromptu photos. Dark clouds rolled in instead of golden hour, but we made it work!

Baby James

This little man was 1 month old already for his session, so we weren’t able to get many sleeping poses. But I love wide, curious eyes! He was a trooper, putting up with our whims and attempts to swaddle him.

Let's make something great together.

Silverwood Park

I can’t believe I almost have a five year old! Sometimes it feels like she’s growing too quickly; sometimes time can’t move fast enough (hello tantrums). Either way, I love watching her grow.
To commemorate her upcoming milestone birthday, I brought her to Silverwood Park to take pictures by the giant metal ‘5’ sculpture. It was a beautiful day, and we had a lot of fun walking around the park. 10/10, highly recommend.

My coworkers and I went on a fishing excursion for team-building, but I’m not big on fishing so I brought my camera instead.

Happy Easter

This weekend, the girls and I met my friend Kim and her family at a park in Ham Lake for some impromptu Easter pictures, and to let our girls run around and play together. They had a blast, and while we weren’t able to get posed pictures with the Easter setup I brought, the girls […]

Fun with Film

A couple months ago, I came upon a Minolta camera bundle that included a 50mm f/1.4 lens. Now, I hadn’t touched my film camera in years, but the temptation was too great, so I gave in and bought it (yes, just for that lens). Bought new batteries for my camera, swapped in the ‘new’ lens, […]

End of Summer

Summer is my favorite season, and always seems to go by too fast; this summer was no exception. This summer was the first summer that we had 3 birthday parties to organize, as we had my husband’s oldest daughter living with us until the end of July, and our youngest just turned a year old. […]

Jackie’s Bridal Shower

Yesterday was my friend Jackie’s bridal shower, and I was a co-host, so of course I decided to take my camera along to get a few photos. Nothing crazy; I was there to celebrate, after all. But here are a few snaps of the spread, in case you’re curious. My mom painted the mason jars, […]

Renata’s Milk Bath

I finally tried something today that I’ve been itching to do for some time. I’m in a few photography groups on Facebook, and recently I’ve been seeing a lot of milk bath sessions posted in a few of the groups, so I decided to try it out today with my 11 month old.
