The Bute Family // Prior Lake, Minnesota

An evening pontoon ride, two curious ducks, a mini fishing session and some sunset beach playtime. Uhhh, yeah. The perfect family date. I was thrilled to be invited along and capture these four as a family. Not to mention receiving multiple bonus hugs from Owen, and big cheesin' smiles from DARLING little Emma. 


Time stands still best

in moments that look

suspiciously like

ordinary life.


David and Sarah have been such a huge support in my photography business since day one. Encouraging clients are truly what help keep small businesses afloat these days, and I have so much gratitude for this family.


Thank you Bute's! I always love spending time with all of you and am looking forward to seeing you again soon! 

The Yackel Family // Big Lake, Minnesota

I met the Yackel's a few years ago when I photographed them as a family of four at a local park. Their session was such an easy success I was thrilled to have another chance to have them in front of my lens; this time as a family of five! Little miss Lilyan is their latest addition and I would love to know where she gets her energy. Yard games, a family tradition marshmallow fight, a bonfire and s'mores were their picks for activities this warm summers eve. 

Thanks for being you, Yackels. Enjoy!
