everyday family session | prior lake, minnesota photographer

I’ve known Molly for a very long time; we met through our passion for scrapbooking (she, too, is a Creative Memories consultant) but didn’t really get to know each other until she experienced the loss of her daughter.  Molly knows the importance of savoring moments – she’s got a drive for it that matches my own!  I loved her session idea… to capture their youngest son’s first birthday.


On his birthday.  As they celebrated together as a family.

It was pouring rain when I first arrived but there was no way I could reschedule… it was his birthday after all!  Thankfully, it slowed down to a trickle and we were able to sneak outside for at least a few shots before the mosquitos totally overwhelmed us.  🙂  Here is a peek at the rest of our time together:

I so LOVE what Molly has done with her walls.  Her family images are everywhere and displayed so creatively!


Her boys are a joy to be around… so expressive.  And really, really, REALLY wanting to show their little brother the birthday ropes.


And then there was cake!

It was a pleasure stepping into your life for the evening, Molly.  Thank you SO, SO MUCH for the invitation!
