symphony park, smith center- audrina is one!

Audrina's first birthday photos! 

I can't believe later this month, sweet baby Audrina turns 1! I have been so blessed to meet Kenna and Jordan. I was able to photograph her maternity photos, newborn, and Christmas photos! This time, Kenna wanted something a little bit more bright and vibrant; so the symphony park at the smith center was perfect! she bought amazing balloons, and a "number 1!" A new gorgeous dress, and had her "A" along too. we found some shade and it turned out great even though she's not a morning person ;) 


i love her little hands, and this ADORABLE dress! 




Audrina is such a sweetheart, with the most squeezable little arms and legs! 


kisses for mama! 



i loved everything about this session and it's been so fun to see this little beauty grow. it was a perfect location! happy birthday audrina girl! 

sweet Audrina- baby photos!



You've seen Kenna's maternity check it out here, and now Audrina's sneak peek so finally here are more of this beautiful baby girl!





It was so much fun to have some time to talk with Jordan and Kenna, and about their new beautiful baby girl! i have to admit the funniest thing happened right at the end, Jordan thought for sure Audrina would go to the bathroom on him if we did Audrina all nakey! and sure enough.. she did. right after that last shot. i wasn't going to share this BUT i saw he wrote it on facebook, i figured it was a go then. :)




something i noticed even more during this session was how Jordan looks at Kenna. During the maternity photos he looked at her so sweet, i loved it! but this was such a proud loving look. it was perfect.



Thank you two for letting me meet and photograph Audrina! she's gorgeous. and there will be more coming up! Jordan has some good ideas! shhh...


baby boy destined for lacrosse

 My first shoot back in Minnesota, i had the opportunity to spend a little time with great friends from college. if you know anything about photos during this time in our lives.. they were in them. mostly the not cute ones, after volleyball games. ha

They had this precious baby boy four well almost five months ago! It was my first time meeting the sweet Parker boy. he was wide awake for the most part, but i captured a yawn.. look for it ;) 

it's always beautiful to me, when you get to see a couple engaged, then attend their wedding, and then have babies too! i love being a part of that journey. and i love. yes love this couple. 

although seeing friends become parents, still crazy to me. 

this is your typical Maria is the nurturing mother with a gentle spirit and a big heart. Andy is.. your typical throw him in the air, probably teaching lacrosse (they have a stick already for him) dad. love to see them all interact. 

thanks for meeting up with me, you picked a beautiful place for photos! miss you!
