Snowfall and old things

Recently I went to WI for a visit, respite, and to take my niece's 7 month photos.  The day I was scheduled to leave for home : (  the snow began to fall.  It was so beautiful.  So my mother and I went out to the barn to look for something unique to photograph...this old chair and antique frame caught my attention right away.  Just love the feel of the image.   

Rachel and James' Birth Story

I posted some photos from Rachel and James' birth story earlier but will be posting more from my day with them.  Birth Stories are so unique and so very special to each individual/couple and I feel beyond privileged to be a part of such an event.  As you can image however; this is a document of a birth, so some photos will be graphic to some, just fair warning.  Other images are too intimate to share with any one other than the individual/couple themselves.  To see more from Rachel and James' Birth Story you can go to

Betsy's Beautiful Family

Betsy (her husband) and their family are from Windom.  I had such a wonderful time photographing her family.  It felt familiar to me; much like my own family, that it was was easy for me to just settle in and start photographing.  Hopefully I got each of their personalities documented!  To see more from Betsy's shoot, go to:
