my own | north dakota children’s photographer

I’m taking a break from all of the client sessions to share some of my own!  I can’t believe this was almost a year ago already.  For Mother’s Day, I asked my kids if I could take some photos of them.  With the freshly greened spring grass and the warm, sunny weather, this session was truly a gift for this mama!  I love the way these two love each other.View full post »

aden | bismarck child & family photography

I have got to get back to blogging because I have some sweet faces and lots of fun personal photos to share!  And now that things are finally turning green all around Bismarck, I’m going to be out shooting more and more sweet faces and amazing families, so I need to get caught up before all of that begins! About a month ago, I took a few photos of my nephew Aden.  He is going to be a big brother very soon and his mama wanted a few photos to show how quickly he is growing.  He is theView full post »

happy valentine’s day! | bismarck photographer

I always have so much fun every year taking Valentine-themed photos of my kids.  This year, I was short on space to do much, and almost didn’t do it at all, but I’m glad I made the effort just because I love being able to compare them year after year and to see how much they’ve changed from one Valentine’s Day to the next.  Plus, we have fun coming up with ideas for Valentine cards for their friends.  Look at Cohen last year.  And Rory and her Valentine’s.  MyView full post »

halloween 2012 | bismarck child photography

There are only a few things I really remember about Halloween as a kid.  One big one was homemade costumes.  The only store bought costume I really ever remember wearing was an all plastic cabbage patch smock and mask thing one year.  Other than that, my mom mostly made our costumes.  And it seemed like when the moms would run out of ideas or time, all of the kids from my home town would just do a big trade.  It worked out well.  Another big thing is that it was always FREEZING on Halloween!  IView full post »

this kid | bismarck child photographer

I got a new lens this week, and Cohen was very willing to let me test it out on him as long as I took a photo of him with the Sponge Bob toy he stole borrowed from his cousin Emma.  No problem, buddy.  I didn’t want Sponge Bob to steal his thunder, so he got cropped out.  I think this face deserves all the attention it can get…and with expressions like that, it gets a lot of attention; some good, some bad! Cohen has been full of funny comments lately.  Some days I think it wasView full post »

cohen’s 3rd birthday | bismarck child photography

Cohen turned three last week, and it was the most exciting birthday for him so far .  I just think three is the most magical birthday because it is the first time that they really get it.  He sat with me when I designed this invitation, and from that point on, all he could talk about was his dinosaur party.  For weeks, he would have this same conversation with random strangers in the grocery store:  “Guess whaaaat.  I having  a dinosaur party!”  Said in his tiny, high pitched,View full post »

life is good | bismarck, nd photographer

A couple weekends ago, I took the kids to Starbuck’s.  Josey was gone at a fishing tournament, so it was just us for the day and we had a couple of errands to run, but first I thought it would be fun to treat ourselves.  And anytime my kids get to go to Starbuck’s, they are just thrilled.  (That’s some marketing if not only adults can’t stay away from that place, but kids love it, too.)  After spending some time inside eating and drinking, we headed out the door, and onView full post »

featured on life & baby! | baby photographer in bismarck, nd

If you’ve read my blog for awhile, there is no secret that I really love to plan parties.  I have so much fun designing all the details…cutting, punching, gluing, assembling.  It is even more fun now that Rory is old enough to get really involved and help me out with all of it!  She has her own chair and spot to sit in my office, and we spend lots of time down there creating things.  So, imagine how excited I was when Evelyn from the Life and Baby blog contacted me, asking toView full post »

my girly girl | bismarck children’s photographer

I love that now that she’s a little older, she actually likes having her photo taken.  While Erin and Juila were here and I had the backgrounds set up, I wanted to get some photos of Rory for her Valentine cards this year.  Pink and purple are her favorite colors!  She had been asking me to flat iron her hair for awhile, so I did, and wow she looks so much different to me.  And I think she looks so much older with straight hair, which is not a good thing!  Erin took some shots of her,View full post »
