featured session share on napcp…{saint paul children’s photography}

thank you SO much to NAPCP for featuring my work on the the napcp blog!  i was thrilled and honored when napcp contacted me to share my recent session of “miss ellie.”  this was one of my all time favorite shoots…everything just seemed to fall into place that day…the beautiful fall day, the lovely lighting and most importantly, the beautiful family.  🙂

NAPCP (The National Association of Professional Child Photographers) is an association whose mission is to promote and support the artistry and integrity of the most talented, creative, and professional child photographers.  the association is a wonderful resource for BOTH the professional photographer and YOU, the parents! if you have not visited the napcp blog, please do so!  you will leave feeling educated and inspired!

if you are a photographer looking to be a part of a wonderful association, which is filled with amazing photographers and AMAZING people in general, look into joining!  i have learned so much about my business, my photography and taking my mind to new levels creatively!  and, the best part…networking with so many wonderful people from around the country!

it is so fun to see “miss ellie” again…what a sweet pea!

miss elizabeth…

this very spunky little sweetheart was a very typical two year old…full of non stop moving energy!  🙂  i always feel like i have gotten a workout after photographing this age…translation, i am ready to collapse when i leave the shoot! ha!  elizabeth has the most beautiful, inviting brown eyes and cute little smile.  i was happy she brought along her special baby, named “baby.”  it was evident they have a very special friendship…very sweet.  🙂  thank you merritt and sean.  it was so nice to meet your family!

miss harper…

such a fun afternoon i spent with miss harper and her family…what a little sweetness.  i loved how harper’s mommy wanted to try all kinds of fun and creative ideas with her little girl.  i think harper enjoyed herself and especially the end of her session.  as you will see, she thoroughly enjoyed her beautiful birthday cupcake.  she was not happy when we wouldn’t let her eat the entire thing.  happy first birthday, harper…you are lovely and so is your family!
