I had an amazing time collaborating with Kaitlin and Elle from Elle HMUA.   Elle is an amazing hair and make up artist located right here in Pine City.  She made all the flower crowns you see in the post and has them available for purchase in her shop.

This session was a little out of my normal style, but it was so fun!!  My favorite might be the milk bath images.  I have had this amazing claw foot tub for a couple of months and haven’t had a chance to use it until this session.  It will be available for maternity milk baths, mom and me milk baths, boudoir milk baths.  I am so excited at the possibilities of the tub.  Hopefully next summer I’ll have time to use it outside too!



I had a great session with these two tweens and their mom!  I just love when mom’s want to get in pictures as they are usually the ones behind the camera.  We had a truly beautiful night for a session.  This time of the year is the best for sessions, usually less humidity and still that nice yummy summer sun.  A few hints of fall show with some beautiful goldenrod.


When you schedule a session for sunset to get that yummy summer sunlight and it is cloudy you reschedule, 3 times!!  Just glad it worked out that we finally got a sunny evening.  It was perfect minus the swarms of mosquitoes, but that’s something that just goes along with summer nights in MN!  I have photographed this family a few times and it’s always such a fun time with them.  One new member of the family since their last family session, a cute little puppy!
