Richter Family 2012

Last year I was able to photograph this family for the first time. What a sweet family they are. Mommy Richter is a friend of mine, and I so admire who she is and how she lives. She’s always been one who has inspired me to get into the Word of God and believe it. Believe that God is who He says He is. Believe who God has made me. Believe that God can do what He says He can. She has challenged me through our small group at church and through her testimony which can be found here. Be ready to be inspired! Here is their great family!

 

Hunter Family

What an incredible family the Hunters are! Being told they couldn’t have children, dad and mom adopted five children and have (and are) raising them in the church to know Jesus. Years later, they have a miracle bundle of joy and now that little girl is two years old. They’ve been through hard times, endured heartache, and have experienced the joy (and sometimes difficulty) of having children. So much energy, so much excitement, and so much love in their family. It’s fun to take pictures of animated children, and little Miss A definitely is! It was a pleasure to get to know them during the photo shoot!

I’ve gotten to know this little girl’s family well in the last few years. The plan was to have me in hospital when little M was born, but with the flu going around, the hospital had a crack down on visitors and those who were allowed in the room during delivery. Since I’m not immediate family, I wasn’t allowed. I was so bummed! But I went over to their house ASAP when they got home! Little M is such a sweet heart. I look forward to watching her grow up!

Herzog Family {Minnesota Family Photographer}

I absolutely love this family. Pastor Patrick has been a pastor at my church since I was born, and became the senior pastor some years back. I first got to know him as my youth pastor, and have had the privilege to grow as a Christian and as a leader under his leadership. Outside my family, he has been the most influential person in my life and I’m so grateful for his passion for Jesus Christ. Not only does he tell those in his church the truth of the Word of God, but he lives it out in his own life, and his wife and children show it. Those who truly know him trust him and have benefited from his God-given wisdom. What a legacy that this family is already leaving. I’m so blessed to have them in my life!

Sonmor Family {Minnesota Family Photographer}

This family holds a special place in my heart, even though I really only know a few of them. I met Cyndal a few years back and since then she has been such an encouragement to me. It’s so refreshing to see a young lady who loves the Lord and shows it by the way she lives. She babysits my daughter (almost) every week, and I don’t think I could trust anyone more than I do her. I’ve gotten to know her mom a little in the last few weeks/months and my husband knows her dad and one of her brothers from church softball. I’ve been hearing her talk about her siblings, grandpa, and nephews for so long and I finally got to meet them all! What a privilege and what a great family!

Little M {Minnesota Children Photographer}

This baby boy is one of the strongest I’ve ever seen! At only ten days old, he holds up his head (for a short amount of time of course), and does things that he shouldn’t be doing at his age. It’ll be fun to watch him grow up, that’s for sure! After being awake for most of the session, mama finally got him to sleep and we got the rest of the shots. He is so precious!

Nord Family {Minnesota Family Photographer}

We were able to squeeze this photo shoot in before all the beautiful leaves fell, but they asked that I keep their pictures a secret until they chose a picture for their Christmas card. They tell me that they had a hard time deciding which picture to use and I don’t blame them! They were a great bunch of people to work with and it is so fun to be able to photograph family friends. I’m glad they finally made up their minds with the picture because I’ve been wanting to show them off! So here is the Nord family. Enjoy!
