  Lovely Little Freja,   It is hard to believe that a year with you has already flown by. I cannot believe that little peanut with a mass of dark hair is now a little lady who can crawl and dang near stand up.   I have known your parents for a long, long time, […]

Dear Freja… I A YEAR OF SMILES

 Select Sundays this past year have found me in one of the most loving places with two great people and their little lady. And a grandma and grandpa, as well as a papa (who I just can’t believe is anywhere near 80 years old). It’s been several sessions that were nothing but love and smiles and […]

#SweetFreja is almost 1 year old?! I SMASH CAKE

May 9, 2017

Multiple things were learned prior to Ivy’s smash cake session: Cub Foods has little five-inch cakes that travel very well. Time goes way, way too fast. When all else fails, 3D print it. It was the cutest little cake, with the softest pink frosting with a one-of-a-kind plastic gold cake topper (which was not cut […]

In Norse mythology, the goddess Freja is one tough chick.  As the goddess of fertility and beauty, she’s got a lot on her mythological plate. She is accompanied by her pet boar, Hildisvini, who is actually her protégé Ottar in search of his ancestry.   In Dan and Elizabeth’s living room, Freja is accompanied by […]

 At nine months old, Ivy has clearly become a little woman-in-the-making. In my last meeting with her, I learned she has a morning make-up routine with Momma, loves her neon green ball, and takes a couple moments to wake up, and then she is all smiles.   I dig you, littlest girlfriend, especially on the […]

Once October comes to a close, we Minnesotans never know what November we are going to see. Yes, March traditionally comes in like a lamb or a lion, but November, well, he can sometimes can a bear—and I don’t mean Yogi or Boo Boo.   It was such a pleasant surprise, then, when a couple […]

Baby Ivy is 6 Months! I A YEAR OF SMILES

“Oh, she loves the outdoors!”   This was absolute music to my ears when I suggested that Ivy, the pretty little lady I’ve met one time before, spend her three-month session outside. As I’ve said a couple of times, it’s been kind of a mucky, yucky, rainy summer up north; I had hopes for some […]

I hope you all have the opportunity to meet as selfless people as Dan and Elizabeth.   They have truly lived love in the name of their first born son Leo, a beautiful boy born an angel to them. They have jumped head first in their support of the March of Dimes, doing all that […]
