Dan & Colleen are Engaged! | St. Croix Falls, WI Proposal

On Thursday, Dan and I spent the evening scouting locations and making a plan at Dancing Dragonfly Winery. On Saturday, everything went off without a hitch!

Colleen may have had an idea of what was coming, but she was still surprised when Dan got down on one knee. She was even more surprised when they "snuck" around the private party sign to find a quiet spot & her family and friends were waiting to celebrate with them!

F Family | Found Families Session | Chaska, MN Family Portraits

We worked so hard to time our session for perfect blooms on the flowering trees as well as gorgeous weather. Not only were we planning the dream family session at the MN Landscape Arboretum, we were planning a session to celebrate the completion of a family after years of waiting! With three biological children, the F family finally feels complete with the addition of three more sweet kiddos!

Having grown up with foster siblings and with two adopted siblings, adoption is something that is near to my heart. Because of this, I'm honored to be able to volunteer for Found Families, an organization that provides free family photography sessions to families that have recently adopted a child. I loved meeting this amazing family and spending the evening with them!
