I had my official open house for my new studio waaaay back at the beginning of the summer. One of the people who attended won the grand door prize of a free simple session and gifted it to her daughter’s family. They asked if we could take a picture of their dog - of course! Their pup listened better than some 4 year olds I’ve photographed, including my own, haha!
I had these two cuties in the studio awhile back and am finally getting around to posting these! We worked hard for these and there were many skittles consumed in the process!
I did this little guy’s first birthday pictures earlier this spring and knew that we’d be doing some family images once the weather got better. Summer was well underway before we remembered that we needed to get this scheduled and by that time, this awesome family had a special announcement to make! The cat is now out of the bag so I’m excited to share this pregnancy announcement and family portrait session in Garrison, ND.
Fort Stevenson State Park in Garrison, ND has quickly become one of my favorite places to photograph families. There are plenty of neat places to explore and the kids always enjoy getting to run around a little. This was a quick 20 minute session and when we were done, the kiddos couldn’t believe that was it!
Trap shooting. Dirt bike. Outdoors.
When J and his family came in for their consultation I could immediately tell this session was going to be fun. Mom and Dad wanted some classic photos in a favorite hoodie and J wanted pictures with his dirt bike. When the day of the session came it was cloudy and threatening rain - I was so nervous that this was going to be a bust! If it rained, the road wouldn’t be safe for him to ride on and our location was not going to be as easy to navigate if mud was involved. But thankfully, we must have been in some sort of bubble because the weather was great and the clouds even thinned toward the end. The mosquitos nearly carried us away but I think it’s safe to say we all had a blast.
Near the end of the session, Mom suggested going to a place up the road that was closer to their house and is her prime sunset and weather viewing location. I’m so glad we went!
I think we captured J’s personality and interests perfectly in this session and his family was thrilled with their prints and canvas.
Are you graduating in 2020? There’s still time to get your senior portraits done and I have a few more fall dates open before the weather starts disagreeing. Whether you’re at Garrison High School and need senior portraits or another school nearby, contact me and let me know what you have in mind - we’ll design a custom session that reflects YOU!
