Mason & Brandon! ~ Kid Photography

My husband and I have been truly blessed by the neighbors we have.  We are surrounded by many amazing and wonderful families!  One of those families is Tony & Rhonda and their kids Mason and Brandon!  We moved in next to this family before Brandon was even born...so we've had the pleasure of watching these two boys grow up!
Rhonda asked me if I could do a shoot with the kids and I was MORE than happy to do so!  We spent some time in the park/playground right near our homes and I had a blast.  Here are some of my favorites.

Crystal ~ Maternity Shoot

Crystal is a dear friend of mine.  We've been friends for just over 10 years now and have been through a lot together.  She was a bridesmaid in my wedding and I've been head over heels in love with her children.  Well, now her and her husband are welcoming their 3rd child into the world soon.  She's due December 10th to have another little boy, Kaleb.  This will add to her family which also consists of 5 year old Jordan and 3 year old Evelyn.  I was excited to take these pictures for her and am quite happy with the results.  Here are some of my favorites from our shoot.

Duluth ~ October 2009 Part One

I know this will end up being a two part post, so I should just start it out that way.  Russ and I went back to Duluth (for our 2nd time this year) on October 15-18th for a wonderful 4 day weekend getaway!  We stayed at the same hotel and in the exact same room that we were in when we got engaged on October 19th, 2009.  It was really great to get away again for a short time and I had been REALLY looking forward to putting my new camera to use!
So, here are a few shots for you...More to come in a future post

Our wonderful fireplace and whirlpool tub!!

Our room had such a great lodge feeling to it.  Very peaceful and relaxing.
