Wow, again, way to much time since I posted last.
I just don't know when to find the time....
so much has happened and gone on in October and it is hard to believe tomorow will be November.
I have been extremely busy with photography and I am still trying to find a balance between everyday life and business.
The kids had three days of school off last week so we headed to Thief River Falls, MN for a few days at the waterpark. They had so much fun, we spent another night at Grand Forks and then came home to a very full schedule.
I have yet to go through the pictures I too there, I have been to busy processing wedding and portrait sessions.
I did grab a few of the kids in there costumes though

We survived our family photos
so strange being on the 'other side' during a photoshoot.
I understand why parents get so stressed about the whole picture thing.

Birthday wishes for an angel

Noah's birthday is today.

He would be 4.

I thought I would take today to share a few more images from his funeral. Feels like forever ago, yet just yesterday all at the same time.

I remember a year ago, you opened up that Baby einstein 'noah's ark' movie and you got SO excited!

Happy birthday little angel.

I am sure you are enjoying EATING your birthday cake for the very first time up in heaven!

Update picture post


This post is going to be full of pictures and not much writing! I have so many pictures still from summer of the kids I have yet to convert, so I will slowly post them as I do.

The week before school started I took the kids out to Granny and Grandpa's farm so Aidan could help with harvest.


We had a great relaxing visit, the weather was amazing.




One evening we went and visited Levi's grave. It was 8 years ago that we buried this little guy. We actually had a very interesting and educational visit as my mom and the kids and I toured the Margaret cemetary.

After the visit to the cemetary we went to a local farm for some horseback rides. The evening was incredible, and there were NO BUGS.


On the way home from Granny's, we stopped at Noah's grave. It was the first time we have been there since he was buried. The grave yard is near Oakbluff, off of the south perimiter. You can see the tiny clump of trees from the highway.


Still so fresh.....

Another weekend camping...

I have been told I don't blog enough. That is the truth. It has been one INSANE summer. Between camping, kids swimming lessons, weddings and other photo shoots, I find blogging last on the list.

This past weekend we had our annual (I can call it that since it has happened two years in a row!) camping trip with my side of the family. Although we had three campsites, with three trailers, we all stuck around in one. The kids biked a ton, swam, played, ate.....they had loads of fun.

Fly to Jesus little Noah.

Tuesday afternoon we were blessed with a sunny day. Noah's service was beautiful.

We thank everyone for your prayers and support, for all the messages, emails, phonecalls.

Continue to pray for Brad and Nichole as they adjust to there new life.

I had the opportunity to build Noah's tribute video, you can view it below.

This second video I made was played at the end of the service.
