    I don’t know about you guys, but I’m feeling all of the music feels lately. Between Adele’s single drop this morning and songs like M83’s Wait or Ryan Adams’ cover of Wonderwall, these musicians just get where I’m at in life right now. But that’s the wonderful/magical/crazy thing about music, right? It’s ability to both transport you to a past memory but also, it’s ability to bring feelings to the surface. Happy feelings, sad feelings, introspective feelings. Just…feelings. I’ve always … Read More

    The secretest of all my secret shame? Little man Charley is nearly 2 years old which means these images ARE MORE THAN A YEAR OLD. Uff da, guys. If time passes insanely fast as a parent, the speed the earth circles the sun quadruples when you’re a photographer*. But you know what? I don’t even care because these images still bring me so much joy. Promise I’ll blog his 1-year photos by the time he’s five. Cross my heart. *Not a scientific fact.

    Hello. I’ve been expecting you for quite some time. Here, come sit beside us for awhile . and let me tell you about this old friend of mine. She might look tattered or maybe old But I won’t say goodbye until you’ve been told. She had the brightest eyes I had ever seen, And wore a beautiful fur coat that would out shine a queen . She was never prissy but walked with an aire …… And oh so polite, … Read More

    Little lady Cleo. You were born into quite a family. Your mama is one part designer, one part home stylist and one part fashionista (also, I want to be her when I grow up). Your dad is one part finance guru, one part expert baby soother and all parts funny. And while you are bound to be the best of both of them, I also know that you will grow up in a house that will encourage you to find … Read More

  5. Larsen Family | St. Louis Park Newborn Lifestyle

    Little Luke. Pretty Piper. Boy, oh boy, you two. You sure know how to do surprises… Twins. TWINS. I remember when your mom and I first sat down for lunch and she goes, “Hey, I’m pregnant. WITH TWINS.” And I just about fell over. Because. Well. Twins. But your mama – YOUR MAMA – with how exceptionally beautiful, candid and hilarious she was during her pregnancy was basically made to carry twins and you both are so lucky to have a … Read More

    I love this family like I love a super crispy baguette with hand-churned butter…THE MOST. If I’m being honest, it’s probably the number one thing I – hardcore – miss about this gluten-free diet of mine. So – stay with me – when I relate my love of this family to a bread product, it’s not really that far off. They are the type of family you miss when you don’t see them for a while. And the type of … Read More

  7. Life in the In-Between

    Last week marked nine (really, truly incredible) years of marriage for Matt Oholendt and myself. Photo 2: Ryan Cummings, Photo 4: Gina Zeidler I don’t say that “really, truly incredible” thing lightly. Our marriage hasn’t been without it’s struggles or it’s weeks of disconnectedness or months (at times, years) of life being just being plain hard to handle. By the grace of God, those real life periods haven’t defined our marriage or made it weaker but, almost certainly, made it infinitely stronger. As … Read More

    Oh, Charley. If there’s one thing we already know, it’s that your mom & dad are just the best. If the whole apple doesn’t fall far from the tree thing is the honest truth then, kid, you are going to be the best times infinity. Now, it is true that when I met you, you were not the biggest fan of sleeping. I’ve heard rumors that you are starting to have a growing love for the concept of sleep but, little man, … Read More

    The colors of the rainbow, So pretty in the sky. Are also on the faces, Of people going by, I see friends shaking hands. Saying, “How do you do?” They’re really saying, “I love you”. I hear babies cry, I watch them grow, They’ll learn much more, Than I’ll ever know. And I think to myself, What a wonderful world. -Louis Armstrong, What a Wonderful World Love you, sweet Lils.

  10. Grahek-McClure Family | Linden Hills Lifestyle Photography

    It’s true and I’ll be the first to admit it. There is a switch in my brain that has literally flipped from off to on in the last year or so. YOU KNOW THE SWITCH. Yeah, that one. Going from “Babies? Maybe when I’m 40.” to “ohmygoshthatchildisadorable – canIhaveoneplease” is kind of one of those life changing switches. I don’t know if it was turning 30 or if it just became a matter of there being a really wonderful amount of totally … Read More
