Baby Aiden

I had a great time photographing Aiden. He is about 3 weeks old, and such a sweetie. I had a lot of fun bringing out my macro lens while he was sleeping, and got some close-ups of his ear, hand, etc… I think those little details are so precious! I had a tough time narrowing down my favorites with this shoot, so I included a few more than I normally do. Enjoy!


Hamline Alumni Gatherings

I recently photographed the Hamline University alumni gatherings at the Town and Country Club in St. Paul and the Minneapolis Club. These are great events for Hamline grads to get together to socialize and network outside of the standard class reunions. I had a lot of fun looking for nice moments to photograph.

Baby Noah

I loved taking photos of Noah! He was so sweet and sleepy, which is always nice for a newborn session. Thank you, guys, for inviting me into your home to capture a little slice of life. You have a beautiful son! Congratulations!

You do such a wonderful job of capturing the essence of “baby beauty”.

Special Olympics Swimming

I got to spend a couple hours this week photographing some of the coolest people I’ve ever met for the Special Olympics. It was their 2009 Spring Games and I did pictures during the swimming competition. What amazing people, both the competitors and the volunteers. I love the wonderful emotion and dedication I saw that day. If anyone has an opportunity to go to one of their events, or volunteer/donate in some way, I’d highly recommend it.

You can see the full shoot and buy prints here: 100% of the proceeds go the the Special Olympics Minnesota.

Nice post! My daughter was one of the athletes pictured, and I LOVE the picture!!! (along with the others on your photography site!) I think a lot of people didn’t realize you were there, or that they could get copies of the pictures, so I’m working on spreading the word!

Wow, those are some amazing shots! I can’t wait until my son is old enough to participate in these kinds of events.

Beautiful! I love how you captured the action shots!

Madi – 1 Year

We’ve had a great year taking pictures of Madi! She was on our newborn, 3, 6, 9, and 1-year picture plan and we’ve had so much fun being her photographers. We took these photos at Madi’s first birthday party and though there was a little bit of chaos (think 15 sugared-up kids running around, hunting Easter eggs) it was really a fantastic time.
