We met Luella, Brittany, Josh and their sweet dog Millie Sunday morning at the Walker Art Center and had a great session! Luella had a colorful, fun jacket on that allowed us to get some bright shots and this made her eyes stand out so crisp and beautiful! We had brought the cutest little headband that we got from lovebyCC photo props! They have amazing headbands and props! It was a little cooler this weekend so we were able to capture several shots outside and with the puppy, then had to move inside the Walker to get our final shots! Luella did a great job, although we wish we could have gotten her to smile just once for us! She wasn't quite sure what we were doing or who these women were (although she loved the little bench we brought!)! What a beautiful family! We hope to take pictures of them again, maybe when it's warmer!!
Madison just turned 1! We can't believe how the time has flown! We feel like we just took her newborn pictures and now she's walking and saying "da da"! For this shoot we scouted a new location and ended up shooting her, Holly and Jeff at Staring Lake Park, by the Outdoor Center! The lighting was wonderful - fairly cloudy and no shadows! The shoot was full of energy and Madison did great! We were able to get some smiles and she had a lot of "fans" from bikers, walkers and runners that morning! We've been so blessed to photography Madision since she was born and she just gets more beautiful and we love watching her personality form! AND those eyes are STILL stunning!
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!
