It’s not often that I write out babies names as first and middle. But, oh! her name! Odella Delphine…. it just sings old timey music while sitting in a frilly dress on a southern manor porch with a glass of lemonade… right?!? It’s a big name for such a little girl, but with Zach and Kara for parents, I know this little one is destined for greatness!
I was so happy when Kara asked me to come to their house for photos – photographing on location is my most favorite way to shoot since I’m able to capture a client in a more natural, comfortable and personal setting. Most clients have a hard time thinking their home could lend itself to amazing photos, but they’ve always been pleasantly surprised by the outcome! It’s almost always possible to find great lighting, and in Odella’s case, amazing props as well! I contributed a few blankets and my super amazing, fantastic mini top hat, but the rest was all Kara and Zach. Recognize the frame?!? Zach’s grandmother’s mirror frame has been the most requested item from my clients since K+Z’s engagement session a few years back. I tried to take it off the wall and out the door with me, but no luck, sorry friends!! It did re-inspire me to find one of my own, so keep your eyes peeled. :)
I’ve been drooling over this photo all week – isn’t Miss Odella precious?! There are so many great shots that I just had to post a quick peek of what I’m working on this weekend.
I love this job!!!!
Time to play catch up! I have sooo many sessions to blog about – what better way than posting fun and sunny photos in the dead of winter! Stay tuned for lots… and lots to come.
Sarah and Eric are getting married later this year at the most perfect rustic barn location in small town Minnesota. I’ve heard rumors of the festivities, and know first hand that their wedding is going to be nothing short of amazing! The Groom plays the banjo! ‘Nuf said.
There’s nothing like the Minneapolis riverfront at sunset on a warm, late summer night. It can be rustic, urban, country, and industrial… all just depending on which way you turn. The St. Anthony Main and Stone Arch Bridge area are one of my favorites in the city to shoot – and Sarah and Eric rocked it!
