The Czichotzki family!

Ria contacted me at the beginning of the year asking if I’d be available to capture her family this summer. Their family is in transition mode as the kids are now all teenagers and they are awaiting news of an adoption going through for a little boy! Ria wanted this chapter in their lives captured and I was honoured to do so! We met up in Thief River Falls, MN at the end of July since I was going to be in town and they were willing to drive up from Fargo! They brought along all the globes they used to decorate a special room in their home, a room that God willing will belong to their future adopted boy! I thought this was the sweetest gesture to include him in the session.

Let me introduce you to Tim & Ria and their 4 children; Katelyn, Carson, Cooper, and Kennedy!

Thanks guys for braving a prickly field and pesky bugs and hungry tummies after a long drive! It was a joy to photograph your family!

Thanks to the White House Boutique girls, Katie and Sam for letting us crash their farm sale! And to their parents for generously letting us roam their gorgeous property for pictures!

Ria is also a talented photographer based out of Fargo! Check out her work: Rialee Photography

I’m looking forward to future coffee dates Ria! So thankful you contacted me!

Joe & Jody engaged!

I met Joe & Jody just a couple months ago for coffee at a Starbucks. I pretty much knew instantly I’d love to shoot their wedding! Here we are; the wedding is planned, engagement pictures happened, and their big day is only a bit over a week from now! We had such a great time during their engagement session a few weeks back and I wanted to share them with you before their wedding day! We ran through the fields, laughed in the flower patch, and twirled as the sun burst out from behind the clouds! Their love was so very evident and I can’t wait to do this again real soon.

Congratulations Jody & Joe!

Living Life’s Moments

In May while we were in Minneapolis/St. Paul, I spent a sweet Sunday morning with the radiant mama-to-be Kari, her husband Aaron and their two beautiful little girls Kaia and Kendi!

I had “met” Kari through Instagram when I fell in love with her beautiful feed; @livinglifesmoments! You should probably check her out! So thankful our lives crossed and I was able to capture her sweet family in their charming home!

After having breakfast, changing out of pjas, running around the house and snuggles in bed, we headed outdoors to capture some of their favourite activities in the back yard! Namely, relaxing and more snuggles in the hammock and little sis giggling in the swing strung up on the giant shady tree! Also picking flowers and running back and forth on the side walks. I fell in love with this quaint family friendly neighbourhood with all it’s charming character homes!

Once again thank you thank you Kari & Aaron for opening up your home to me and allowing me to capture a little slice of your lives! I can’t wait to see baby #3 welcomed into your lives!!

I fall more and more in love with capturing families in their own homes and normal lives! Please if you are interested in one of these sessions, email me!

I’ll be coming up with a new package for these life style sessions and hoping some of you will trust me and invite me into your daily lives!

Rory & Kelsey married!

Before we get too carried away with 2015 weddings, I’m going to jump back to fall of last year and show you this charming Fort Gibraltar wedding!

Think warm fall breeze, crisp evenings, log fort, candles, fireplace and a woodland animals theme! Rory & Kelsey’s wedding was all of that and I’ve been wanting to share it with you!

So sit back and enjoy!

Kelsey opted for a soft colour palette of creams, pinks, and mint blue for bridesmaid dresses. Gorgeous bouquets by Oak & Lily!

Kelsey and her mom designed her headpiece and she gifted all her bridesmaids with Anthro cups, matching floral robes and Sugar Blossom bracelets!

I loved the warm glow inside Fort Gibraltar for the ceremony!

After the ceremony I whisked the bride & groom away for a quick session in the woods!

The fort was transformed into this warm candlelit dining place for the reception. Accented with table numbers designed by One Plus One, beautiful calligraphy place cards lettered by Julie Doan, antique books stacked and tied with pretty fabric and lots of candles! And we can’t forget about the beautiful cake from Jenna Rae!
