Madison just turned 2! We can't believe how the time has flown! For this shoot we tried a new location and ended up shooting her, Holly and Jeff at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis! There were so many wonderful spots to shoot in the Guthrie and the lighting was natural and great! The shoot was full of energy and Madison did great! We did a lot of "jumping" to her favorite song by the Beatles - Hey Jude and ran around while she investigated all the cool spots! We were able to get some beautiful smiles today! We've been so lucky to photograph Madison since she was a newborn and we just love to see how she's grown! Now she's counting, singing the alphabet song and on the move!
Just in time for Valentines Day, I wanted to snap a couple of shots with a pop of red. I set up a time with Holly and her adorable daughter, Madison for a mini shoot and I picked up a bunch of red balloons on my way. We met at Starring Lake Park in Eden Prairie, and as I started unpacking the props and my camera...the balloons flew away. Seriously. They did. To my astonishment the attached ballon weight did not seem to help with keeping them down at all. In retrospect, it's actually pretty funny. Needless to say, I wasn't able to get any ballon shots, but at least Madison was wearing a red coat, so I was able to still get my fill of red accents for the day :). Happy Valentines Day!
For Jolie's shoot we went with the 50s theme. She had a blast getting all dressed up. Karla & Eric were so excited to get some pics for Jolie's big 1 year birthday party! Jolie did such a great job! We used a few different back drops and had some fun props to work with! She just loved the long pearl necklace and even kept the head bands on! Jolie has the best little smile and we just loved being able to get a few shots with those precious little teeth!!
