Ellia 9 Months: Snapshots

We thought it would be good to post a couple shots of our daughter who is growing up way too fast!  “Thank you Grandma for knitting me my rocking horse outfit!”  -Ellia





Alyssa and Chantz: Engagement

We cannot wait for New Year’s Day – a celebration of a new year and a marriage uniting this awesome couple.  We love you both….

Chantz played a very comical role in the most recent opera production held at MSU.  His character was bashful.  And…he demonstrated a little of his character during our shoot….

“Heeeeeerrrrrre Chantz….!”

Awe yes! 

This couple knows how to have some fun!





Payton: 3 Years!

This little guy really amazed us!  Cooperation!  Seriously!  He was a gem and became very comfortable in front of the camera – and fast!  When you can capture a 3-year-old’s personality – “the real them” – it brings pure joy to our eyes because our blog readers can see a “real” glimpse of an individual.  It was hard to narrow his down for a blog post, but we’ll settle for these! 





Eric: 2010 Bishop Ryan Senior

The weather cooperated with us recently for Eric’s senior shoot – love it when that happens in October!   Per Eric and his mom’s idea, we went over to Corbett Field since baseball is a huge part of Eric’s life.  Congratulations to Minot Ryan for three straight titles.  We hit another outdoor location after that and then headed into the studio to wrap up the session.  Great job!  Here’s your first look…





Kaitlyn: 2010 Minot High Senior

After a rain delay for her outdoor portion, we got it done on a better day.  And…with tons of leaves!  Kaitlyn, it was nice working with you.  Have a great senior year.  Here’s a few peaks….





Nicole and Andy: Looking Back (video)

Nicole and Andy….your day was beautiful.  Here’s another look back at your fabulous moment…





Tarryn: 2010 Hays Senior

All the way from Kansas…our next senior for you all to meet is Tarryn!  It’s always nice to run into former classmates and discover what they have been doing.  Tarryn and her mom, Jennifer, were in town visiting family and coordinated their senior session around their stay.  And…we were happy they did so!  Tarryn, you did awesome!  What were the chances of your school colors matching Minot High’s???  It worked perfectly in the pool.  Have a great senior year, and the best to you both….





Elizabeth and Donovan: Engagement

Definitely another fun engagement shoot marked as complete!  It doesn’t matter the weather, we always have a great time getting to know our wedding clients.  Elizabeth and Donovan…we look forward to your wedding next summer.  It will be a very fun day!  Here’s a look at a few from your session…..





The Vix Family

As always…this family puts big smiles on our faces.  Why?  Because they look so good!  And…when you’re photographing a little 3-year-old blonde who melts your heart, it’s reminds us over and over how blessed we are each day to be given these opportunities.  Tanner and Stacey…you’re amazing parents.  You’re both dear friends to us and we look forward to seeing your little one grow up more and more!  Here’s a few shots from your session….





Amanda and Jonathan: Engagement

Oh boy…where to begin with this one – as in, which images to blog!  First of all, who’s says the first snow in October has to be depressing?!!  When you can capture the beauty of our city mixed with a beautiful couple, it becomes pure joy.  Yes, we ventured out the morning after a few inches of snow last week and captured this very fun couple for their engagement shoot.  Amanda and Jonathan…you were both fantastic!  The view was amazing and so were the two of you.  We’re looking forward to your wedding next September.
