At this point, who isn’t thinking of warmer weather? I’ve had spring fever for at least two weeks already. I couldn’t take it any more so I had to bring a little bit of Spring into the house! I bought three succulent plants for my office the other day! It is the perfect fix to this loooong gloomy winter. I took a little break the other day from my normal daily work to photograph my new office friends. For you photographers reading this, I tried a new shooting technique called free-lensing. Google it! It is a lot of fun! Below are a few shots that I took. Let’s hope that Spring is right around the corner. I don’t think anyone would complain.

This past Saturday I received a little note in the mail that gave me that warm & fuzzy feeling. It was a thank you card from Grace and the wonderful people at Minnesota Heart Gallery who I wrote about in a previous post here on my blog. I really LOVE this organization and everything that they do. It feels great to be able to be involved with an organization that gives so much to our community, especially to these kids that need the extra help to find a loving home.
The photos of the young boy I photographed are now on their website. Please take some time to take a look, and maybe even consider adoption yourself, or forward Minnesota Heart Gallery’s website to a friend that might be interested.
Here is a photo of the note I received:
Thank you Grace and MN Heart Gallery! Happy Monday everyone!
My college friend, Aimee, sent me a message last night and said she had something that she HAD to show me! I was thinking it was going to be a photo of something really ridiculous that she saw or something, but what she showed me was by far WAY better that that!
Aimee has a little boy named Carson who I have photographed a couple times over the last three years as I was in school with his mom. Last night Aimee said Carson was playing with two wooden blocks and acting like it was his camera, and he was “taking pictures” of his little brother… but this is where is gets good- Carson took his “camera” and showed his mom and said – “Look at my picture of Kaiden mommy. I’m a photo taker and my name is Adam!”
That made my night, and still makes me smile today! Here is a photo of the little guy in action! I’d say his mommy better watch out, he has some pretty high tech equipment and has some good photographer form!
I have been back from California for a couple weeks already. I miss the sun, warm weather, and the ocean, but it is good to be back home too! I finally got around to editing some of the photos I took while I was there. It was fun to shoot just for me and to be able to be a little creative and try some new things. Here are just a few of the photos I took. Enjoy!
And of course, one of Amanda too!
What can I say, this little girl still manages to amuse me with her huge personality and infectious smile! I can’t believe what a big girl she is already and how smart she is for her age! The number one thing I love about this girl is how she says my name! Ever since she started talking, I have been called Elmo. Maybe it’s the strawberry blonde hair of mine that is causing the confusion, but to her I am Elmo, and I hope that I remain Elmo for a very long time! It makes me laugh every time!
I did this little photo session the same night as Evan’s newborn photos. Aydree was being such a good sister that night, and I couldn’t leave without getting a few photos of her too! She has a thing with going through her closet and doing a little fashion show of her clothes. She won’t put them on, but she will hold them up to her and ask, “isn’t this tute?” Yes the clothes are “tute”, Aydree, but so are you! After picking one of the ‘tuteset” outfits of them all from her closet, Aydree and I went for a little walk around the yard and did a few photos of her! I enjoyed my little session with her! Each time I visit Aydree it seems and though she grows up even more… These photos will hopefully hold time still for awhile and keep her in my mind as the little girl that I seem to think she should be!
