This. Girl. Is. Darn. Adorable.
One is such a fun age because not only is everything still exciting and amazing but one year olds have their own opinions and try as we may sometimes they just don’t want to do what we want.
As a Northfield Family Photographer I am used to grumpy, crazy, silly and stubborn and sometimes I think it’s even more fun to work with a different personality and find what makes them excited. In this case Miss Aurelia wanted to find the kitties, to explore and to frown at me!
What I REALLY wanted was to get some images of Aurelia snuggling and loving on her mommy because these two are as close as can be and mom really wanted to get some pictures for them both to remember this time in their lives.
Aurelia loved exploring by the back of my Northfield Family Photographer property. She loved the branches and trees and she especially loved how we just let her do her thing.
My favorite images from the session are from mom and Aurelia just hanging out. Literally! I love the snuggles and smiles and how simple this set up was. Mom is a nature lover and so is Aurelia so this seemed just right for them.
I think if Aurelia was to pick a favorite location on the farm she would pick the old yurt! She loved running around, playing with mom and just in general being silly! The lighting back here is so beautiful and kids LOVE playing on a wooden deck in the middle of a woods. Who knew that something so simple could be so amazing?
I am so happy to have spent this sticky afternoon with these two beautiful ladies, I know they love their pictures and will for the rest of their lives.

I have been awaiting the day that I would get to meet Miss Adeline for a long time and I know that mom, dad and big sister could hardly wait for her to join them!
As a Northfield Newborn Photographer i love getting to be a part of families lives and sharing in their story.
This story is especially beautiful as Miss Adeline and her big sister had an extra special journey to get here. Mom and dad have had a hard time conceiving naturally but with the love of God and some help from the medical community they have been blessed with these two beautiful girls.
As both a friend and their newborn photographer I knew they were trying again and my family joined in their prayers that Reagan would be a big sister soon.
Mid last summer I found out that they were expecting and cried the happiest of tears for this gorgeous family as I knew how long awaited this precious girl was.
The day of their session both girls were just the sweetest, most polite dolls. I mean you can tell by the pictures how great they are right?!
We not only took images of Adeline, but also of Reagan and a few family images. If you are dressed nicely and visiting your Northfield Newborn Photographer you mine as well get some with everyone too!
In the past Miss Reagan has been a little bit shy but not today! Nope she was JAZZED! After all she is a big sister, four years old and adorable! It was all silly smiles, giggles and fun as we played around in the studio. She started off by taking some images in her new airplane (courtesy of grandpa Vlasak). This is so very special because almost everyone on mommy's side of the family is involved in air travel!
Then we added baby sister and worked on getting the group shots before anyone got too hot!
Once we were done with sibling and family images it was time to focus on this beautiful blessing. She was a tad grumpy so I pulled out all the tricks and got her snug and cozy in a variety of wraps. She LOVED being swaddled up and mom and dad LOVED these images of her just snug as a bug!
Congratulations you guys, I couldn't be more happy for each of you and your beautiful addition to your family.
I am so honored to have taken Adelines first images and love having you not only as clients but friends.

Meet Hayden. He was super sassy during his session and decided awake was the way to go.
As a Northfield Newborn Photographer I like to give jazzed up babies some time to relax. Sometimes they need a bit more time to kick around, look at what is going around and listen to the different sounds of the studio.
During this awake time I like to talk to babies and work on taking a few images of them awake. As much as Northfield newborn photographers typical job is to capture sleepy images it is nice to see a few awake images too. If they are happy, of course!
The studio is filled with the sound of white noise (to mimic inside mamma) and sometimes it can take a minute for little ones to adjust to the new sounds as they have finally started to get used to the quiet of the world. I know that sounds crazy but it was noisy inside his mamma.
Hayden was definitely the exception and spent a good amount of time hanging out happy and kicking around.
Part of my job as a Northfield newborn photographer is to roll with each babies personality and create beautiful images regardless of how baby is feeling that day. So Hayden's family got more awake images and they were still perfectly sweet and showed his sassy personality.
Congratulations on your beautiful baby boy and thank you so much for including me in this special time in your lives!
Many blessings to you all.

Would you believe by looking at these guys that they are a Florida family?
They look warm and cozy and right where they belong!
When the leaves started to change this fall they contacted me about a session. This was their first fall in MN and wanted photography of their family to remember the scenery.
Right away I knew we had to find a time quickly. Being a Burnsville family photographer I know how it can be golden and red one day and brown the next. I had an opening that worked for them and we quickly got it scheduled.
I started scoping out areas that had rich colors and beautiful scenery and found one that I was so excited about. It was near Interstate 35 so it was easy to access and had so many spots that would work perfect for their session.
The day of the session I was a little disappointed because it was a bit gloomy. Being a bit cast over is actually quite beneficial as a Burnsville family photographer because you can shoot anywhere without having the suns harsh glare. The downfall is that you don't get the rich warmth of the sun when it starts to set.
While I was preparing for their session the sun came out and I knew exactly what I would do if the sun decided to peek out during their session. I warned them while we were shooting that if the sun came out I might freak out and yell for them to run. Sure enough when the sun came out we all went running, it was a bit goofy for a minute, but 100% worth it to capture this sun drenched warmth.
I hope you guys have so much fun during your first MN winter back as a family!
