Erik and my new house is surrounded by tons of trees. It’s private and beautiful and we really love it.  There was one tree in particular that was absolutely beautiful last weekend.  Yellow and glowing in the evening sun.  I knew I had to get a few photos.  You will not see me in these because I hadn’t even showered that day.  Erik had just returned home from a Vikings game so he was decked out in his gear.

I’m always so grateful for these impromtu photo shoots.   I love capturing my little girl in all her sweetness. Soft, pretty light with my baby girl and her Dada (she has recently started saying dada, she doesn’t know what it means yet, but we still love it). Erik and I have a busy weekend ahead.  I am having dessert and drinks with my girlfriends Melanie and Kristin on Friday evening and on Saturday we are hosting a dinner party with about 13 of our friends.  It’s my Alexia Foods sponsored dinner party and I am super pumped.  It is going to have lots of fall-inspired foods and booze galore.  The best kind of party.

I hope you all enjoy the weekend!


Juliet’s 6 month photos were taken by Gruman Photography.  The session itself was a bit stressful because Juliet was not in the best mood.  You can tell she was a bit grumpy in these photos but overall, I was surprised and thrilled that they turned out so beautifully.

I adore each and every one of these photos, smiley or not.  They capture Juliet’s personality so well.  We took these at a field on a beautiful summer morning in mid-August.
One of my favorite photos from the session.  Juliet sure loves her daddy. 
I asked my sister-in-law to bring my niece to take part in some of the photos.  Both girls were pretty uninterested in getting their photo taken at this point, but we still managed to get a few good ones! I especially love the ones of my little girlie and I.

I’m so happy to have these professional photos to capture my beautiful sweet, girl.
