Amanda and Dan were engaged in December, and they were excited to have their engagement photographs taken at the same location and time of year that they were engaged. We went to Centennial Lakes Park, as that is where Dan proposed to Amanda – more specifically, he asked her right on the beautiful bridge overlooking the lakes! We visited Centennial Lakes Park on a pretty blustery January day. We couldn’t complain too much, as the two days prior to our session saw another polar vortex closing the schools in Minnesota (the third time this year!) It was a “balmy” 24 degree day, but the wind really made it bitter. Amanda and Dan were champs though — they were great at throwing off their coats when the time was right to get our photos, they stood on the bridge amid the freezing wind, and they even laid on the ice, all in the name of capturing great photos! Here are just a few of their images to share. Thanks for working with me, Amanda and Dan — I’m so excited for your big day in August, and I’m pretty sure there will be no sign of a polar vortex!
We are so excited to announce the arrival of our sweet baby boy Beckett! He was born on October 30th at 12:23pm, and was 7 pounds and 20″ long. Lucia is happy to gain her new title of Big Sister. We were surprised when he came along to find how much we had forgotten about newborns (oh, that’s right…they sleep A LOT), and we are having such a great time spending our days together as a family of four.
I tried my hand at Beckett’s newborn photos last week, although this is not normally my style of photography (I prefer lifestyle images to heavily posed…) But I still think they look great! That or I am just a biased momma, perhaps? Either way, welcome to the world Beckett!
Today I’m excited to announce that the garden styled wedding photoshoot that I organized back in September was published on the Love and Lavender blog last week! If you haven’t had the chance to see it yet, head on over and take a look. I had such a great time working with this group of talented artists, I’m looking forward to a few more sessions next year as well.
