There is one word to sum up Sam- Adorable! I am so glad her and her family moved to the area a few years ago and I have loved getting to know them! She has such a great fashion sense and she should probably give me a few pointers... and some of her shoes. :)
I was so excited when she said she wanted to do this idea. It'll make for a great graduation announcement!
Your gallery will be up verryyy soon! Check your email tonight! :)
Taylor's session got split in half due to super windy and a tad bit rainy weather. (In the Dakotas? No way.) We dodged the wind the first day just enough to let her hair still be able to play in the wind. Love it!
I love morning/evening sunlight. I believe I have said that before, but I'll say it again! :)
Thanks for being so fun to work with, Taylor! Your gallery will be up soon!
After my session this morning, my neighbor came over to show me her newest addition to the flower shop. Custom label wines! These two are Rosholt designs and there are Victor and New Effington wines coming by the end of the week.
While you're in town for the Bee this weekend, be sure to stop by Alsaker Floral and pick up a few! These custom labels would also be great for weddings or anniversaries! If you are interested, let us know! You can check out Alsaker Floral's website or give them a call at 605-537-4766 for more information about the wines.
I have known Nicholas since he was born and I've known Sarah for quite a few years now, too. These two started dating in high school, soon after Sarah and her family moved to the same school Nick went to. They are so laid back and I couldn't have asked for a better couple to work with!
This is one of my favorites from the pictures we took at the park. It was really windy that day, so our plans of Lake Elsie were ruined, but luckily the park is sheltered and we still had lots to work with!
During their first look, all Nick said was, "Hey you." followed by a hug. Short and sweet. :)
The ring bearer and his 'partner,' as he called her, were so darn cute! The flower girl informed me that kissing was gross after he kissed her hand. :)
The whole wedding party was so awesome and they're pretty darn good looking, too!
The ceremony was beautiful! Father always gives great sermons and he did the same at the wedding.
And requested by the bride... the infamous jumping picture! :)
Thank you again, Nick and Sarah! I hope you had fun in Duluth!
As most of you know, I have a super adorable niece. She models for my mom's Etsy shop and any time I want her to. :) I always hear, 'Grace must be so easy to take pictures of!' Well, people... let me tell you something. She is two. Yes... TWO! *duh duh duhhhhhh* She is independent, stubborn, and well... two. I love her to death, but sometimes she makes me work a little more. I would like to show you a few examples from yesterday with commentary:
I asked her "Gracie, can you smile for me?" and this is what I get.
I tell her "Grace come over here and sit on the chair." and this is what I get.
I ask her, "Grace, can you put the apples in your basket?" and she says, "Mah appoos. I hold." (And please notice the puppy butt in the background.)
I tell her, "Grace, come smell the flowers." and she smells the pepper.
I tell her, "Smile at Auntie!" and I get this...
I say, "Grace, what are you doing?" She says, "I eatin'."
And this... well, I'm not sure.
I say "Grace, just one more picture." and I get this.
