I have the pleasure of knowing so many wonderful and talented people and when a dear friend of mine offered to photograph me and my new bike, how was I to say no? Yes, this is my new ride! I have been loving it and by the way, if you're a client it is available for photoshoots!

Typically I have a hard time seeing pictures of myself but I am loving these! She did such an amazing job!

Me and my BFF Nichole! We don't see each other very often and I am so grateful to have these beautiful photos of us to cherish.

2010 New Prague Girls Volleyball

I had the honor of being asked to shoot the girls volleyball team again this year. The posters will be featured in local businesses. The girls choose the theme and location of the shoot and will also think of a slogan for the poster. We had lots of wind to deal with but the shoot was a lot of fun! My boys tagged along and got to ride in the combine afterward which was their excitement for the day!

Kyla - New Prague High School Senior

Kyla is a beautiful senior and a tremendous athlete. I think most parents think that smiling photos are best, but I really loved Kyla with a serious look. She really pulls it off, don't you think?

Kimberly and Stephen

I'm slowly getting around to blogging some of this summer's weddings that I missed. To say that I've been busy is an understatement! I hope everyone is having a great summer, there's not much left of it! I can't believe the State Fair is only a week away! I'm curious to see how things go once school starts. I will have both boys out of the house all day every other day and just Aidan the other days.

Kimberly and Stephen had a fabulous wedding and a fabulous day. Here's just a few of my favorites from their day. Kimberly was gorgeous and smiling all day long which makes for an easy day for me!

Fall availability: I am still trying to figure out a date(s) for my all day mini-sessions. I am tentatively planning on Saturday, October 24th. I have several fall weddings and I have to figure out what would work best to get the photos turned around quickly for Christmas cards. I am also searching for new card templates which I hope to be part of my package offered. Stay tuned for the announcement because I expect spots to fill up quickly, especially considering I already have 3 families wanting me to hold a spot.

Please keep in mind that fall weekends are pretty much non-existent through October for family portrait sessions, so if you plan on booking please plan ahead because I will only be accepting a limited number of weeknight sessions. In addition, weeknights are also filling up fast with senior portrait sessions so if you want to book family photos at some point get on it right away! I also have to keep my pregnancy in mind. The further I get along, I plan on cutting back so that is another factor to throw into the mix. By this fall, I will be about 6 months and I have no idea how I'll be feeling. Whew, that is a lot to even have to think about!

I want to thank you all for your continued support!

Nichole and I went out shooting one night during her stay. Here are a few random shots I got playing around. It was such a great visit and ended way too quickly!

Allison- Mankato West Senior

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed working with Allison and her mom. We had such a great time that by the end of the session I got a hug from her mom. Allison showed up with a great wardrobe and full of beauty and smiles. It was very hard to narrow down my favorites and I'm sure I'll keep finding more as I look through them!

Allison brought this dress and heels and I was so excited to take her here and shoot some fun ones!
