It seems like I say it a lot, but it really is fun to get to photograph clients over time and see babies and kids grow.  I'm lucky and get to see little Katelyn several times during her first year.  Here she is at 4 months, her second session of the year.  You'll see her cuteness again in a few months. :)

I met up with Owen and his parents at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden early on a Sunday morning and had a great time.  I got the sense that this family has a lot of fun together.  And Owen has so many funny expressions (although the sample of images here don't really represent the depth and diversity of them). :)  I guess we'll stick to the happier expressions with some of my favorites...

To mark Samantha's one year birthday, her Mom called me up for a little photo shoot - no brothers allowed this time. :)  It was so cute... her Mom was telling me how much she loves water, so at the end of the shoot she brought out a bucket of water.  And as you can see in the last photo - Samantha loves to dunk her head in the water - she thought it was great.  Not to mention it was a fun way to end the session.  Just a few from the session...

We had a little family get-together yesterday and I got to spend some time with my niece, Jocelin.  I love spending time with her!  And after a little coaxing she agreed to a very mini photo shoot -- I think my suggestion that she climb the tree sealed the deal. :)

Amelia is so little and so cute (and has such a cute name)!  It's funny for me to look through this blog post because you would totally think she slept peacefully through the entire session.  I guess Amelia and I will let you in on our secret... she actually preferred to be awake.  I'm starting to wonder if it's me -- like babies don't want to miss out on the excitement of their first newborn photography experience. :)  But with newborn sessions I come in knowing that what newborns lack in predictability they make up for in cuteness!  Plus, while Amelia was off eating I had her awesome dog (whose name I can't remember right now!) to entertain me.  And it was such a nice day we were able to get outside for a few minutes.  Here are some of my favorites...
