Minnesota Newborn: George Walsh

Lets give a BIG welcome to this world to the newborn, George Walsh! :) This handsome, baby boy was born on September 17th, 2018. I’ve known this sweet family over the past four years and was honored to document George’s newborn session! He was a gem to work with and so was his beautiful momma! This stage of life is simply, precious.

Allison and Mike, I absolutely love that each time I see your adorable family, you’ve a new milestone of joy added into your lives! Thank you both for the opportunities you’ve allowed for me to photograph treasured moments in your life.

As you may see through my photos, I enjoy telling a story through imagery. :) I’m happy to share this session and hope you all enjoy these photos as much as I do! Happy Tuesday!

Carlson's Orchard: Karaniemi Family

Kelsi & Al are a stunning couple and have the most adorable little girl, Isabelle. She’s now a one-year-old and has the cutest, spunky personality. For the past three years, I have been honored to document their wedding day, maternity session, newborn session, and each session amazes me. It’s rewarding to photograph the milestones of ones life and share these joys through images. For this family session, we went to the Carlson’s Orchard & Bakery in Winsted, Minnesota. If you haven’t visited this apple orchard, put it on your to do list! ;) You won’t be disappointed. They have amazing soup & salads, apple pie, apple crisp, and apple everything…oh, and I can’t forget the apple cider! :)

Apple orchards are the perfect setting for a family photo session and if you know me, I absolutely love, LOVE, the apple season! I worked at an apple orchard growing up, so it brings back fond memories of apple picking, and of course, that wonderful, sweet aroma of cinnamon mixed in with an apple crisp, baking in the oven on a chilly, Autumn day. Sigh! Who knew that the sight and smell of an apple could bring such joy to my heart. Anyways, this session did just that. It was a joy filled evening, topped with a honey crisp apple! Enjoy!

Aspen, Colorado - Mini Sessions

Hello my friends!      

COLORADO. 

This gorgeous state is one state I would love to continue to travel to for work and leisure time.  The mountains, hiking, fresh air, family, friends, and memories are what bring me back to this place to which, I once called, home.  Living in this beautiful state for 6+ years, makes it a bit peculiar to choose Minnesota lake shores over the stunning, mountainous, Colorado backdrop.  However, each state has its own beauty, and Colorado will forever be a place close to my heart.  

FAMILY + CHILDREN MINI SESSIONS.   

Family and children portraits are what I truly enjoy.  As a photographer and documenting memories, it's remarkable to watch a child's personality develop, and this of course, is captured through a lens.  Family. Friends. Neighbors. Mothers. Fathers. Sisters. Brothers.  We all have a place here and I enjoy working as a photographer.  I love what I do, and that is truer than true!  ;) 

Below,  are images I'd love to share with you, which were taken on a recent work trip to Colorado for mini sessions.  Enjoy!

Cheers,

Anne
