Pool Party

There's something so intriguing about sparkling blue water...maybe it's because I spent much of my childhood floating in my grandma's pool...maybe it's because I love the ocean but live in a landlocked state...maybe it's because swimming outdoors in Minnesota definitely means it's summer. Whatever the reason, on this day the sun was warm, the water was cool, and the kids were laughing - I can't think of anyplace I'd rather be.

Baby shoot at the Lyndale Park Rose Gardens.


They bloomed while I was gone, but there was one perfect peony left when I got home.

Atlantic Beach

Minnesota is too far from the beach.

Kristian & Catalina

My brother-in-law's wedding in Moorhead City, NC.


One of the few pictures from my trip to South Carolina. Most of my free time was spent relaxing on the beach...

Alyson & Kathryn

It's always fun to see how kids have grown. I took Kathryn's baby pictures when she was about a month old. Now she's two and has a new baby sister. What a beautiful family!
