This is Autumn. She hung out with me one evening in downtown Stillwater. We had a great time looking around at all the little back alleys trying to find fun places to pose for her senior portraits. Autumn you were so much fun to work with! Good luck with your Senior year! -LisaQ    }

The last time I spent an afternoon with this wonderful family their son was brand new. Now they have welcomed another little girl to their family and moved to a beautiful house that can grow with them. I loved hanging out and seeing all the new rooms and of course dad’s “ice cream truck”. Dad…

At the end of summer this year I was fortunate enough to spend a day learning how to can jelly. The day was perfect. We started out in the morning, leaving the city behind us, we headed south. I can honestly say I didn’t know you could make jelly from grapes grown in MN. I thought…

The house stood on top of a hill bracing itself against the wind that roared through the treeless landscape. The beautiful fall weather I was welcomed with last month was gone. Winter’s icy breath was announcing it’s return.  It was cold and harsh. The landscape had turned into a midwest winter desert. It made the task…

The last few days of real summer have been great. I have met so many wonderful families. This particular evening we spent our time walking through the Longfellow Gardens. There were so many beautiful butterflies and flowers to investigate. It was still hot and humid so the little one had to cool down with a…

Brand new house, brand new baby. When I showed up to meet their newest addition to the family I was met by the family’s curious puppy that was eager to play and show off his younger brother.  Little Levi could not have been any cuter and his smile…oh his smile! He has the biggest grin of any one month…

Part 1: The Arrival The noon whistle blew, that meant it was lunch time on the farm. But I wasn’t there to eat lunch. I was there to say goodbye. It all came flooding back to me…the sound of the dinner bell…the sweet smell of hay…the lazy afternoons spent drifting in and out of sleep…

If you know me then you know my love for chickens. (and yes neighbors I will some day come around asking for permission to raise our very own) So when I showed up to take photos of this family and they told me they had chickens I could barely contain my excitement! Not only did…

One of the biggest compliments a photographer can have is to shoot a couples wedding and then get a call back to photograph their new baby. It is such pleasure getting to document these huge milestones. I never tire of the new love created by a couples union or the love of a new baby. It’s always exciting….

Two little sisters at the Lake for an afternoon. Before it officially becomes summer around here I wanted to share this sweet little session at Lake Harriet. I have had the extreme pleasure of documenting this family over the past few years. It is such a delight to watch families grow and see the new personalities…
