Yay!! I’m so excited to share my very own family photos! Meet me (if you haven’t already) my hubby, Todor, and my pup, Bianca! As a photographer, you’d think I’d have oodles of photos of us, but it’s not very often that I’m on the other side of the camera. In fact, we hadn’t had photos taken together for about 3 years, so I’d say it was about time!  I admit, having my photo taken isn’t my favorite activity, but I am so thrilled with these images and I can’t wait to display these photos in our home. On another note, starring in my own photo session reminded me of what my clients feel and it was an enlightening and inspirational experience! :-)

I owe a big, big, big thank you to my friend, colleague and partner in crime, Whitney for capturing these images that we will treasure forever!  Whitney is an amazing photographer (check out her personal business site here) and I am so lucky to have her as a part of my team!

Aw, summer… I miss you already! I shot this session of Cadence and Eli in mid summer when the temps were soaring and the Minnesota lakes were prime for swimming. I had been dreaming of doing a swim shoot, and Cadence and Eli graciously volunteered to be my models! Cadence is a fellow photographer, and an amazing one at that. Check out her blog for some of her most recent work. This shoot was styled by Stephanie of First Blush Bride, who put together all of these gorgeous looks. Big thanks to Stephanie, Cadence and Eli for bringing my vision to life!

  • kristen - i love this laura! yummy colors:)
