Shaw family! http://www.free-spirit-photography.com/blog/2017/7/shaw-family I had a blast photographing the Shaw family at Dickerson's Lake Florida Resort.  Their family as been vacationing there for over thirty years together as a family, isn't that just so fun?!  They wanted to capture some shots of them at the place where they all come together and enjoy time together every Summer.  I thought that was just so wonderful!  I enjoyed meeting the family and capturing some fun shots of them in front of the beautiful lake Florida and in front of the beautiful flowers that you can find all over the resort!  Enjoy these images, remember they're not yet edited!

Russell's Newborn Photos! http://www.free-spirit-photography.com/blog/2017/2/russells-newborn-photos I have to say, photographing newborns are my favorite kind of shoot to do... Once you look at Russell's photographs, you'll see why.  They are so sweet, innocent and the most beautiful little souls.  I just can't get enough of them!  Russell's mom, Susan, brought him in on Valentine's day for his newborn shoot.  He was about 1 month old and just so sweet!  What a happy Valentine's day for me it was!  Enjoy checking out my favorites from the shoot!  *these are not yet edited!

Reed's senior photos! http://www.free-spirit-photography.com/blog/2016/11/reeds-senior-photos When Karen, (Reed's mom!) gave me a call it said it was time to do her middle child's senior portraits, I could hard believe three years had flown by since I photographed her daughter, Amanda, for her senior portraits!  So we scheduled a time and place to shoot. Reed wanted his photographs done at Little Crow Golf Course as he's a avid golfer!  I got to ride in the golf cart and take lots of fun shots I've never gotten to do before, it was so much fun!  I am glad we were able to get lots of fun shots at the golf course and I even learned a bit about golf haha!  Then we shot over to NLS school and did a few shots by the house that Reed is helping to build!  He is a super nice fun guy and his mom is super sweet and kind, what a wonderful family to work with!  Lucky me!  Enjoy these sneak peaks!

Hudson's newborn and family session! http://www.free-spirit-photography.com/blog/2016/10/hudsons-newborn-and-family-session I was so excited when Heather called me up to photograph their newborn son, Hudson!  I knew Heather and her husband Nathan from church, we mostly just had time to talk in passing there, but now after our photo shoot I got to know them so much more and can truly call them friends of ours!  What an amazing shoot, to be able to make new friends and to capture some adorable images of their cute newborn and their older son, Kyle too! Kyle is a wonderful big brother at almost 4 years old himself, he knows how to hold Hudson gently and already knows how to give his little brother lots of love!  They were so cute together!  As for mr. Hudson, he was just so adorable!  He has super awesome dark, soft baby hair, and the cutest little features.  He's a big boy weighing in at over 10 pounds when he was born, and I just love that since I had big babies too!  More baby rolls to love on!  We got lots of great images of him, he was a trooper and slept great throughout most of the shoot!  I even got to do a pumpkin theme shot with him for the Fall season!  So much fun!  Enjoy these sneak peaks!

Emily's senior photos! NLS '17 http://www.free-spirit-photography.com/blog/2016/8/emilys-senior-photos-nls-17 I kinda already knew who Emily was even before I photographed her because I had done her older brother and sister's senior photos as well!  So I was pretty excited for it to be Emily's turn this year!  Emily is a senior from New London-Spicer High School, she is a cool, go with the flow, nature loving, fun, beautiful kind of girl!  We did a few shots at the studio and then finished up at Sibley State Park which is just a few miles from my place.  Sibley was the perfect spot to photograph Emily, and we had so much fun walking around finding the best places to take her photos.  Enjoy these sneak peaks ( I had a super hard time narrowing it down, there's way too many good ones of her! )

Mr. and Mrs. Anderson http://www.free-spirit-photography.com/blog/2016/7/mr-and-mrs-anderson Every year I donate a free session or two to the "Save Our Tails" event benefiting the Hawk Creek animal shelter in Willmar.  I have a passion for helping and caring for animals, as does Lois and Todd Anderson.  They attended the event and bid on and won my free session!  I always love seeing who ends up with the session, it's so fun and easy to get to know them because I already know we have one major love in common, animals!  Lois and Todd came to me for some professional photos of them as a couple!  They were so easy going and so much fun to photograph, enjoy these sneak peaks of my favorites!

Eli is 1 yr old! http://www.free-spirit-photography.com/blog/2016/6/eli-is-1-yr-old I was lucky enough to meet Emily and Joseph when they were engaged to be married!  I photographed their engagement photos, and then was unable to shoot their wedding because I was already booked for some one else's wedding.  But when Emily was pregnant with Eli, she contacted me again and signed up for one of our baby programs, where their baby would be photographed at the time he was a newborn, 6 months and 1 year.  Wow how time flies, because now Eli is 1 year old already!  I had a blast capturing his little personality and chit chatting with Emily and Joseph, they are some of the nicest people I've meet!  Enjoy these sneak peaks!

Tammy and Harley http://www.free-spirit-photography.com/blog/2015/8/tammy-and-harley I was so excited when my good friend Tammy, called me up and said that it was time to do Harley's 8 year photographs.  She had her other horse's portrait taken when they had turned 8 as well, and I did the last one's portrait, Abby's.  So now it was her youngest horse's turn!  We ended up rescheduling multiple times due to weather but finally found the perfect day.  Harley behaved like an angel and looked at me with his ears up almost constantly.  Anyone who's ever photographed a horse has learned that it's not always easy to get them to do that!  Harley was the easiest horse that I've ever photographed which was nice since I'm getting towards the end of my pregnancy and Tammy and Harley was my last shoot until I'm off maternity leave!  I think the photos turned out wonderful, enjoy!  *photos are not yet edited!
