Winter Family Session | Bismarck, North Dakota

A winter family session

We are all aware of my inability to blog consistently, so it shouldn’t be a shock to see this winter session appearing in May. This family was so cute I couldn’t resist sharing images from their family session. I also adore this location, a private tree farm in the Bismarck area.

Meet the Cashman’s

These might be familiar faces to you thanks to their awesome local business Cashman’s Nursery. Somehow I got lucky enough to not only call them clients but friends. Their girls are adorable and frequently appear in commercials and radio ads. If your thinking about redoing some landscaping, purchasing some flowers for your home, or need a Christmas tree around the holiday season I highly recommend shopping local and supporting Cashman’s Nursery!

The Levinson/Pritchard/Schuetzle Family

My sister (far left) married into a pretty great family. Over the past 5+ years I’ve basically made them my own family. It’s always a privilege photographing their family and spending time with this awesome group!

Claire hasn’t always liked me taking her picture, but over the years she’s warmed up a bit :)

And then there is my nephew Corbin, I guess he was over holding up his little sister Kendall?!

Breuer Family | Family Photography Mandan, North Dakota

“I’ll ride in on a sunny day, sing you a song, steal your heart away, like a cowboy.”

On a gorgeous August evening I joined the Breuer family for a perfect family session. Cahl has the best blue eyes and his smile was worth the work. This family is basically magazine worthy, they are so adorable and they have personalities to match.

Welcome to the world Katerina Rose 

Three beautiful little girls made for a fun morning session. Who wouldn't want to start their day with some baby snuggles?! Big sisters Maria and Anika did an amazing job of showing me how helpful and loving they are with new sissy. Anika was quick to take charge while bringing some great laughs to the family. Thank you Cashman family for inviting me into your gorgeous home and photographing your beautiful family!

Bly Family | Family Photography Mandan, North Dakota

Bly Family

I love when families invite me to their homes or ranches/farms for pictures. It's a nice change of scenery and often presents a fun challenge of finding good light while getting to do a little exploring. The Bly family had a beautiful big tree with a tire swing in their yard which made for some great lighting while the sun dropped a little where we took most of the pictures. We also battled the mosquitoes for some field pictures before ending the evening in front of some old silos.

Gleese Family | Family Photography Badlands, North Dakota

Gleese Family

I met Cassandra a few years ago while photographing a styled shoot in the Badlands. She is an extremely talented make-up artist who I refer all my western ND clients as I think she does an impeccable job. She asked me to do a "mommy & me" session over a weekend we had planned to work together on a wedding.....of course I said yes! Cass came up with the styling, my only real contribution was the rug and tipi. Her little family was so cute and the bond her children have made me really excited for Bristol to be a big sister. Thanks for having some fun with me and introducing me to the family, can't wait to photograph you guys again!
