NOW BOOKING! Tree Swing Mini Sessions | Lincoln Nebraska

This tree swing was a DIY labor of love and I am completely IN LOVE how it turned out! I’ve longed for a tree swing for years and finally figured out a way to make it happen – I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. These sessions are a great option for any age….toddlers, school age, sisters…even pregnant bellies! Babies are welcome with their mamas.

 

Date: May 27th (sunset)
*Back-up rain date: June 3rd

— Flower crowns are provided (4 to choose from)

— Mini sessions are recommended for kiddos who are cooperative and outgoing and don’t need a lot of extra time to “warm up”
prior to the session as I will need to stick to a shooting schedule.

minnesota mini sessions

I apologize in advance for what must be my longest blog post ever. ;) Growing up in Minnesota and having all of my family still there means we spend a lot of time back and forth throughout the year – mostly in the summer months. Last summer I made a few fun trips for Minnesota summer mini sessions. The location was a farm place just outside of my small hometown. IT WAS PERFECT! That barn.

If I could just pick it up and transport it with me every day for the rest of my life, I’d be set. I swear, Lincoln has no rundown, paint chipping, perfect-for-photo-sessions, barns left. Pout. (If you happen to know of one, PLEASE drop me a hint, because I have looked everywhere! I am happy to trade my 1st born. No really.) And not just the barn, but grain bins, and sheds, short grass, and long grass…such a great variety for beautiful summer portraits. If there is a photographer’s heaven, I was in it. :)

I’ve been fortunate to photograph Cash since the first time his parents brought him home. I’ll never forget it. They had just adopted him and were driving through Nebraska on their way back to Minnesota and stopped for a newborn session. What an honor. Every year since then we’ve gotten together for a session. One of the things I cherish the most about my job is really getting to know my clients and seeing their families change and grow over the years. I always look forward to my sessions with Cash – like giddy with excitement. I’ve been smitten with him since day one and it’s obvious to see why. I love this kid.

Handsome fella.

This next family is a photographer friend of mine that I’ve known online for many years and we’ve gotten together a few times for some photography fun when I’ve been back visiting. Angie owns Angela Kalthoff Photography in Delano and photographs newborns, kids, families, and seniors. It’s always an honor to be asked to photograph another photographer, and I was so excited to capture her family and images of Angie with her kids. With their mom being a photographer, these kids were pros. ;)

Up next is my cousin Dan and his family. His boys were none too thrilled to have their pictures taken. A little shy at first, but I think they came around just fine. :)

Last, but certainly not least, this next family would be a bright spot in anyone’s day. Lee was a few grades ahead of me in high school, and Susie was an acquaintance from a neighboring small town – I couldn’t wait to photograph their big family. These kids are just the best…even meeting them just for the brief time during their session, I could tell each has a personality all their own. I immediately knew there was probably never a dull moment in their house. I knew it was full of love and laughter – a lot of laughter. I completely adore so many of the images we captured that day – I know their mom does too. :)

And now this is the last thing, I promise. ;) For anyone in the southwest Minnesota (New Ulm/Redwood Falls area), I will be back doing mini sessions again this summer. See info below and shoot me an email at info@uniquelyyouphoto.com with any questions or to reserve a spot! I’d love to meet ya!

family photography lincoln ne | my lovely friend

Being asked to photograph another photographer’s family is a huge honor…and also one always filled with a lot of nervous energy. :) This past summer my good friend and photographer extraordinare Jen packed up her family and drove down to see me for a photo session and fun little getaway. I’m so thankful this profession has been able to connect me with some of my very best friends. Her kiddos are absolutely adorable (hello awesome outfits!) and were perfectly behaved! We know that’s sometimes not always the case with photographers’ children, or maybe that’s just my own. ;) The way her boys interacted with sweet Harper absolutely melted my heart, it was obvious how much they adored her. It’s pretty safe to assume that anyone messing with Miss Harper will have to go through her big brothers first.

Here are a ton of my favorites from their session. Too many faves.
