Here is another collection of images I have pinned onto my Pinterest.

I love this one! I have a similar set up above our couch. I have a 3×3 square of 12x12s tho, so a little smaller:)

And I love these frames! So many fun ways to display your images!

I would love to see what any of my past clients have done with their images! Send me an email or share it on my Facebook wall! Also, if you are a photographer, feel free to email me images of your ideas too:) would be fun to keep this up and share all the great ideas out there!

I am loving Pinterest! As I am browsing, I pin all things that catch my eye. I realized I am getting quite the collection of different wall art/print groupings, so I will start sharing those on here:) There are so many fun ways to display your images.

So here you go, enjoy and maybe get inspired to do something with those images that you have sitting on your computers, discs, or where ever they are currently hiding;)

These ones are a collage of images that can be printed on one large Canvas or one large mounted print, many ways to get them printed. But I thought they were a fun way to have one piece of wall art displaying many images!

I will post some more another wednesday!

Meet little J! This little guy is such a happy, spunky, typical one year old! He has been walking for a little bit, and he just thinks(or knows?) that he is in charge! The clouds blocked the sun and the wind picked up about 5 minutes before the session started, so it was a little cooler! But it was still hot!

Seriously! How cute can he be! He was loving the attention!

A few with mom and dad! Love the one below, he is thinking he would rather be getting all the attention on his own…

…so, he decided, he’s outta there!

Such a sweet little guy! Thank you guys for having me capture him at one year old!

Another beautiful family 8. With only one boy:) I love the lighting in these pictures in our makeshift studio on the back porch at their house! I like to stay away from using flash whenever possible and most of the time will not even carry it along as a ‘just in case’!

Here is the baby girl, so adorable with all the hair and big blue eyes! I believe she was about 6weeks old at the time we took these. And the weather was perfect, so we didn’t have to worry about her getting to hot/cold being undressed outside.

After we did the baby, we did a quick shoot of each of the other kids. I love this one!

And of course the one and only boy:)

Such a cute family!

Mini Session FAQs:
What is a mini session?
A mini session is a short and fast 25 minute session, perfect for those of you that are looking for an updated wall portrait, your holiday cards and a facebook update! These sessions are so quick that there is no time for outfit changes, many backgrounds or many different set ups. We focus on capturing the family and with time left, capture a few different groupings/individual shots. These sessions go quickly and you only get the time slot reserved for you, so please try to arrive early, so we can start right on time.:)

I would like more time for different groupings, outfit changes etc. can I reserve 2 time slots? 
Absolutely! If you would like to get almost a full hour session, you can reserve back to back time slots. That would give us lots of time to get many different backgrounds, groupings and time for quick outfit changes. Be sure to reserve early to be sure to get 2 back to back! These will fill up fast:)

How do I reserve my time slot?
Here is the easy part! All you need to do is email me at and let me know which location and time. From there I will email you, within 24 hours, the contract as well as an invoice for the total amount due.Your spot will be reserved for you as soon as your payment is received! All payments are non refundable.

I have a different question?
I will gladly answer any questions you have! Just shoot me an email, give me a call, or send a facebook message!

I look forward to these mini sessions! They are so much fun for me!

(Also, wouldn’t mind taking a trip this fall;) If you are in Seattle/Minneapolis areas email me and we could possibly set up a day or two out there:):))
