Bismarck's premiere newborn photographer | Bismarck area baby photographer | Bismarck family photographer » Megan Milbradt is one of Bismarck's best newborn, child and family photographers. Offering studio newborn baby sessions, first year baby plans and outdoor family sesssions in the Bismarck, North Dakota area.

Last spring, my daughter turned 10 years old and I wanted to do something with her that would really celebrate that milestone.  Something that would make her feel as special and as cherished as she is to all of us.  Family photos are wonderful, and sweet photos of our children together are worth their weight in gold for a mother, but there was something that came out of that session with just her that was simply magical.  One thing that is likely true for females of all ages is that when you are dressed in something beautiful and special you feel that way, too.  It’s why finding the right wedding dress is so important to a bride!  That is what happened with my sweet girl the night of her session.  She was dressed in this gorgeous gown, all the focus on her, and her personality and spirit absolutely shined in every image I captured.  And that was the inspiration for the daydream mini sessions!

I came across the incredible children’s boutique, Tutu Du Monde, that specializes in handmade dresses for girls.  These fancy dresses are every little girls’ dream!  Your girls will be in heaven when they put on one of these beautiful dresses and the images that result will surely be cherished by them now and forever.  These sessions are perfect to celebrate not only sisters, but cousins and friends, as well.

If you’ve followed my blog at all, there’s a chance you may recognize this family.  I’ve had the great pleasure of photographing them for the last five years, and I’ve enjoyed every session we’ve had.  It is such an honor to be chosen time and time again by my clients to capture these moments for them.  I hope you enjoy their photo & film story as much as I did.  Life with three boys has got to be quite an adventure!

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this family since before their little guy was even born.  (If you want a flash back, here you go:  maternity & newborn, 6 months, 1 year and now he’s 2!)  I can’t tell you how much I treasure my return clients.  Having the opportunity to watch their family grow and capturing them from year to year is not just a joy, but a privilege, as well.

Last year, after the busy season was gone and I was taking a much needed break over the holidays, I was jotting down some ideas about where I wanted to take my business in the coming new year.  The thing that I kept coming back to is that I don’t want to just provide digital images that, a few months after they are created, are long forgotten and lumped into the pile of the hundreds from years before.  It’s really important to me that my clients walk away with more than just some more pictures to add to their hard drive.  It’s important to me that my images bring out more than just a photograph of what your child looked like at age 2, but also who your child was at age 2.  I think that last statement is really where my photo & film story idea came to be.

Going through the images and video that I am capturing at my sessions this year to put together these stories has been such an incredible experience.  The feedback from my clients has been amazing, but more than that the process of pulling them together has helped me to learn more about the families that I work with.  I’ve spent countless hours in front of my computer, vision blurred by tears that seem to just sit inside the corners of my eyes.  There is nothing more beautiful than the love between a family, and I love that so much of that beauty can be seen in these stories.

We’re in the full swing of fall, and I have exactly 2 sessions left open for the remainder of 2016.  Soon, all of Bismarck will be covered in snow and family photo season will be complete.  I would love to capture your family in this way, so please contact me today to schedule your own session!

Since I don’t photograph weddings regularly, it’s not often that I get to photograph an engaged couple, but once in awhile a family member or close friend gets engaged, and it is a fun and refreshing challenge to shoot a session that allows me to do something a little more unique and creative.  (It would be a total disaster to take a child on a canoe for a session!)  As soon as I heard the big news about Trevor popping the question to my cousin Lexi, I started brainstorming ideas.

Imagine if you could watch a 10 minute movie starring your parents or your grandparents when they were only engaged. They’d talk about how they met, how they fell in love, and why they are looking forward to the future with one another. Oh my, the thought of that brings tears to my eyes! And that thought was my inspiration behind this photo & film story.  Enjoy!
