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 »

big day | bismarck, nd photographer

Today was a big day for my girl.  Not only did she have her first day of first grade, but later tonight she also lost her first tooth! The lighting in these photos is not the best.  Sometimes you just have to be a mom and not a photographer.  Especially when that quick photo before you leave for school turns into 10 minutes of the little brother taking pictures with his Fisher Price camera.  He knew it was a big day, and he also knows that losing a tooth is a big deal because he insisted onView 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 »

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 »

merry christmas! | bismarck, nd natural light child photography

As I said in my last post, I’m doing a little rewind.  After getting a horrible stomach bug (like just about half of Bismarck), my Christmas was spent mostly on the couch, so I didn’t get a chance to share these with you when I had originally planned.  Please close your eyes and imagine that today is Christmas.  Okay, now open your eyes, and take a look at how adorable these little Milbradt’s are!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas…sans the flu!View full post »

Our 2011 family Christmas card

REWIND!  Okay, so just for a minute, let’s pretend that Christmas has not already come and gone.  Because I was planning to share this before Christmas, but then, well, Christmas came and everything was crazy busy and it didn’t happen.  I thought it would be okay to wait until Christmas day, but it turns out Santa brought our family the stomach flu that has been going around Bismarck, and then absolutely nothing has been accomplished at my house ever since.  So… MerryView full post »

jessie & buzz | halloween 2011

Oh, did we ever have fun this Halloween!  First of all, Cohen is OBSESSED with Toy Story, and has been since early this summer.  I had other ideas for cute coordinating costumes, but in the end, it was a no brainer to let him be Buzz, and Rory was super excited about being Jessie.  Another bonus for me…no sewing!  The Disney store saved my sanity this year. I had a special location planned for a mini session with them in their costumes the day before Halloween, but Cohen woke up crabbyView full post »
