Cold-weather fun

I knew there was a reason we moved to Minnesota. We went snowtubing with some of our friends for as a treat from the great people I work with at Tri-M. We had a blast!
I used my evening preset on these, to give them an instant vintage feel.
John and Bodie...

Hi Mom!

Steve is just chillin'...

My sister, Lo...

The best part of the whole thing is that there was a rope to take you back up to the top. It was like a ski-lift for the snowtubes. Here's Bodie hanging on to the rope...

John getting some air...

Scott and Cory's beautiful snow princess...

Scott was rockin' it...

Tye brought his friend from class and we could barely keep up with the 2 of them. Here's a glimpse I caught of Tye...

Steve and the girls...

And a shot of the whole gang, compliments of Nicki B.

A taste of autumn

I realized I have a couple of sessions from this fall I never got around to posting. In October and November I was so busy photographing and editing, I just didn't have the time to blog like I wanted to. But what a nice treat in winter to get to go back and see such nice fall colors.
So, without further ado, I present to you Brenda's beautiful family:

"D" Turns 3

He was a little shy at first, then he was super silly and playful. He was showing me all around his family's land to where he wanted me to take his photo. We took these on one of the very few warm days we had in January. I found out that I really like taking photos in the snow, as long as it's warm enough.

He threw snow at me! It's ok, I asked him to...

I love these shots in the corn. Does it get more midwest than that?

His dad has a very cool truck. What a better shot for a boy than in the bed of his daddy's cool orange truck?

Actions and Presets

I've had quite a few request to re-post this, but at this point I'd rather not, because it expires so quickly. I you would like them , just drop me an email and I'll send them to you.

Huge Preview for Christy

Meet Baby J. He's my friend Christy's newest addition to her beautiful family.
He is already adored by his older siblings!

I really like the new basket I got. I got it at Hobby Lobby for 1/2 off, which makes it even better. I like the texture of it near J's new soft baby skin. He reminds me of a baby Moses in it.

Have I mentioned before how much I love baby feet?

Thank you to Christy and her family for letting me come into their home, rearrange their furniture, and make a big mess with the fake fur to take these!
