Welcome to sweet Owen's post -  I had so much fun with Owen and his parents this past fall.  He is all things boy, daring, inquisitive, silly, full of life and has so many expressions!  We looked for fish in the creek, had a tickle fight with dad, laughed and played, talked about all sorts of animals, and of course, enjoyed a few treats along the way ;)  Owen has this innocence in his eyes and curiosity in his mind - there is something so special about each stage a child is at, it is an honor to document and photograph all these little things and each child's personality in that very moment.  Thank you for sharing your memories with me Paggen Family!  Enjoy a few of my favorite photographs from Owen's session, of course, we ended the session with another tickle fight...his expression is priceless!

Generations of Love, Glencoe MN Family Session One of my favorite sessions from this past year has to be the Dammann Family.  We had been planning this family session for quite awhile.  Their outfit colors were all organized, our location was set, and a backup up plan was in place just in case the weather wasn’t the best, as two of the families were traveling from a distance away.  It was a beautiful fall afternoon, the autumn colors were just starting to turn and sun was in the perfect setting!  I had such a fun time with these guys, Grandma had a certain sparkle in her eyes, oh the stories I’m sure she could tell!  I did ask her who was the biggest trouble maker of her three kids growing up, of course their were a few different answers depending on who answered... but her smile and sweet laugh could light up any room.  The love, connection, and warmth in their relationships within this family were hard to miss.  They could joke with each other, laugh together, and go along with anything I asked of them.  Thank you Dammann Family for the joyful session and sharing your memories with me!

The Cutest Kids! Benson Family I had the pleasure of meeting Laurin & her sister Alyssa along with their families at my Halloween Charity Event, the three kiddos are pretty darn cute so of course I was excited when they inquired about a family session!  It was a cool early December day at Schell's Brewery in New Ulm but they were all troopers (even the dogs!) and we have soo many adorable photographs from their session.  All the laughing and genuine smiles--Too cute not to share!   Thank you for sharing your memories with me Benson Family!  Merry Christmas!

Alison & Andy's Winthrop Wedding I have been excited for Alison and Andy's wedding since the first time we talked about their wedding plans!  After we photographed their engagement session at Centennial Lakes Park (which was beautiful!) I got to know more about Alison, Andy and Alison's sister, Hannah.  Hannah is in her second year of photography school and intered with me this past summer and fall, so I would hear little bits here and there about their wedding details, plans and decor.  Their wedding day arrived and we started with the details (one of my favorite parts of the day!)  Alison had so many beautiful details I could have photographed them much longer but it was time to get on with the day and get our bride in her dress.  I love when mom's help get the bride dressed, one thing that will always be a wonderful moment and memory for both the bride and mother of the bride.  Alison was in her dress and just glowing - such a beautiful bride!  A few photos of her and then we were off to see her Dad, Mark, for the first time.  Alison had gifted him an engraved pocket watch that was just perfect!  As you can tell by the photos he knows just how to make her smile!  And then it was on to Andy, getting ready photos and finally time to see his bride!  Andy is a pretty quite guy but his reaction to Alison was perfect, they are the sweetest couple and perfect for each other!  Wedding party, family photos, onto the ceremony and celebration!  The love and joy these two share was overflowing and I cannot wait to see where the future takes them.  Congratulations Andy & Alison, it was such an honor to capture these wonderful moments for you both and your families, thank you for sharing your memories with me!  Enjoy a few of my favorites from their day!

Brittany & Dave's Wedding Day Brittany and Dave said their I do's on September 16th surrounded by their closest family and friends.  Their wedding day was filled with so much love, laughter and joy it was a true celebration!  Just a few of my favorite moments from their day:

1.  All the laddies flannels & bracelets!

2.  Brittany's first look with her dad <3

3.  As we arrive at the park for the first look between Brittany and Dave-here's Dave and his best man Tom fishing in their tuxes!  

4.  Dave and Brittany's Dad playing "rock, paper, scissors" for Brittany right before she's given away

5.  Best Man, Tom, pulling out a fish instead of the rings at the alter

6.  Cheers photos at the bar!

7.  The gift the guys bought Dave-- a fishing reel!  I would say that's a perfect gift for him!

8. The band "Shot Gun Wedding" at the reception--amazing!  

9.  Parent dances were awesome!  Love all the laughing and memories made!

10.  The love between Brittany & Dave with their nieces and nephew!  

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Pearson!  Thank you for trusting me to capture these amazing moments in your lives and sharing your memories with me!  I wish you a lifetime of love, happiness & laughter!  Enjoy a few of my favorites :) Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0003Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0003 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0002Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0002 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0007Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0007 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0006Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0006 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0008Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0008 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0009Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0009 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0010Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0010 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0011Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0011 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0004Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0004 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0012Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0012 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0013Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0013 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0014Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0014 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0015Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0015 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0016Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0016 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0017Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0017 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0018Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0018 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0019Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0019 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0020Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0020 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0022Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0022 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0023Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0023 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0024Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0024 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0025Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0025 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0026Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0026 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0027Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0027 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0028Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0028 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0029Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0029 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0030Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0030 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0031Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0031 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0032Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0032 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0033Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0033 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0034Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0034 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0035Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0035 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0036Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0036 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0037Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0037 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0038Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0038 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0039Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0039 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0040Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0040 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0041Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0041 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0042Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0042 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0043Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0043 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0044Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0044 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0045Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0045 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0046Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0046 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0047Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0047 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0048Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0048 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0049Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0049 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0050Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0050 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0051Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0051 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0052Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0052 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0053Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0053 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0054Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0054 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0055Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0055 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0056Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0056 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0057Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0057 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0058Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0058 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0059Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0059 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0060Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0060 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0061Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0061 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0062Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0062 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0063Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0063 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0064Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0064 Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0065Belle Plaine MN Wedding_0065

Miss Maureen Meet little Miss Maureen, she is the sweetest little thing and has the cutest little smirk.  Just had to share a few of my favorites from her newborn session this past summer.  Congratulations to the Sutton Family on your sweet little girl-- I know those two big brothers will show her the ropes as she gets older!

Evan William Introducing Evan William Quast!  He is the cutest little guy and I am honored to have taken his first professional photos!  I have known Evan's mom, Erin, since we were kids; our families attended the same church, growing up we went to the same schools, we were in the same 4-H group, used to go on bike rides for hours at a time, the list could go on and on.  Growing up in small town Arlington, Wade's grandparents lived across the street from my family, and all three of us, Erin, Wade, and myself all worked at the same small town grocery store during high school.

I had the privilege of photographing Erin and Wade's engagement, wedding and now their son.  It is always a privilege to photograph any of my clients, being able to create a beautiful portrait that will quickly turn into a memory is something I will always love.  When that client is someone you have known for the majority of your life it gets just a little bit sweeter.  There is a little more joy knowing their "story" and continuing to "add on" photos to their next chapter in life.  So, long story short, when Erin contacted me, I was thrilled!  Little Evan was such a rockstar at his session and big brother Franklin did just as well!  

Congratulations Erin, Wade, and Franklin!  I hope you can cherish these portraits-- someday, look back and remember these special moments; just how little he was, what it felt like to be a new mom and dad, all those sleepless nights, dirty diapers, and how precious of a blessing he is!  

I recently came across a quote that seems to fit with so much of what I do:  "You will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory".

Enjoy a few of my favorites :)

Emma & Quinn I'm so excited to share more portraits from Emma & Quinn's session!  I have had the honor of photographing these two for quite some time now- since Emma was just a little one.  Emma is the sweetest girl and such a great big sister!

Waldorf Newborn Session Introducing Brianna Marie Holmes!  She is one adorable little girl that looks just like her mom.  I have known Tammi and Sean for years, Tammi is my best friend from high school and it has been a joy to watch their story unfold.  From their dating days in high school, to their wedding, beginning their lives together, starting their family with TJ, and now baby Brianna!  It has been an honor to photograph and document some of these important moments in their lives and I am so excited to share a few of my favorites from Brianna's newborn session!  Big brother TJ has the cutest smile and is all country - he can name just about every piece of farm equipment!  Congratulations Tammi & Sean! I am so happy for your family, you have been blessed with two beautiful babies and are such great parents to them.  I cannot wait to see what the future holds and watch as these two grow!

Love is in the Air! Britney & Brett's Arlington MN Engagement Session! I was soo excited when Britney & Brett booked their 2018 wedding with me!  Growing up in small town Arlington everyone kind of knows everyone, (One of my favorite things about living in a small town).  Brett's Grandparents were neighbors with my Grandparents just outside of town-there is a wooded area in between the two farm places.  Brett found himself quite the catch!  Britney has this smile and presence of lighting up the room, they both have such a natural smile (and they laughed at all my corny jokes! Bonus points for them! haha!)  But in all seriousness you can tell the love they share is something special.  I cannot wait for their wedding next year and am so excited to share a few of my favorite portraits from their amazing session!  Congratulations Brett & Britney-I hope the way you look at each other, beaming with love, never changes!

Dave & Brittany's Carver MN E-Session It has been so much fun getting to know Brittany & Dave and I cannot wait for their upcoming wedding!  We split their engagement session into two parts, the first part of their session was in early early spring before the grass was true green and the trees were full of leaves. We just finished up the second part of their session last week!  Both sessions were at Dave's families cabin/house, which is amazing!!  Besides the beautiful home and all the one-of-a kind features inside there are so many locations on their property every way you look that are breathtaking and picture perfect!  These two are some of the nicest people you'll meet and I cannot wait to watch them say their "I do's" in just a few short weeks!

Eli's One Year Session! Eli and Owen are my nephews and Godsons, these sweet and silly little boys can certainly be a handful of goofiness as well!  I had such a fun time photographing Eli's one-year session and of course, big brother Owen got in on the fun as well!  Owen has a little bit of a wild side, loves anything with wheels!  Trucks, tractors, cars, you name it, if it has wheels he's all about it.  And little brother Eli watches Owen like a hawk, his every move.  Eli has the biggest brightest blue eyes, is pretty laid back observing everything, especially his big brother.  Hard to believe this little guy turned one just a few weeks ago!

New Portrait Album! Angela Archer Photography I'm so excited to introduce our newest studio product!  Take a look at this beautiful album and it's display case!   This lay flat album is perfect for any baby, child, senior or engagement session! The display case has a clear cover so your album can be showcased on any coffee table or shelf.  There are many options for album sizes and custom colors to match your session and style!  

Photo albums are a fantastic way to display your portraits and tell your story, an easy solution to having your favorite portraits printed and something you can look back at for years to come.  There is no doubt photographing and having that interaction with my clients is my favorite part of this business but my second favorite part is getting in finished prints and albums from the professional printing labs-there is something about opening up a brand new album and packaging up an order that I love!  All the planning, photographing, culling, editing and ordering is then complete and I cannot wait for my client to treasure their portraits.  I'm super excited to add this album to the products offered here at the studio and can't wait to design more of these for my clients!

Sparklers in the Rain!! What a wedding!  Nicole and Chris celebrated their wedding day on June 17, 2017 in Glencoe MN.  I have had to honor of photographing two weddings for the Ahlbrecht family and they are some of the nicest people.  At the time they booked and started planning their wedding things were a bit crazy as they were living in Wisconsin and Chris was preparing to be deployed.  As I met for our final consult with Nicole the busyness of their lives continued, she had moved back to Minnesota and was awaiting Chris's arrival from his deployment just a few weeks before the wedding date.  The day had finally arrived and all the details, red, white, and blue wedding colors, old to new cars, and reception at her parents farm were a perfect fit for them.  Different models and years of cars were showcased as the wedding party drove out to the farm- this was such a neat idea and with Grandma & Grandpa leading the pack!  The rain held off for most of the day and just as we were about to wrap up our photos with the sparklers it started to pour!  Years from now I'm sure this is one thing they won't forget-running through a tunnel of sparklers in the pouring rain!  What a fun wedding filled with so many laughs!  Congratulations Chris and Nicole!  It has been such a pleasure getting to know you both and I cannot wait to see what the future holds!  Thank you again Chris for your service to our country!

Chaska Family Farm Engagement Session Kim and Doug are getting married!  I went to the same high school as Kim, and I believe we had a few classes together throughout our years in high school.  She is such a kind person and friends with another couple I had photographed a few years ago who are also super cool (shout out to Maria & Roscoe!) so I figured Doug had to be a great guy!  Oh, and he is!  Kim found herself a wonderful guy!  So when they asked me to be their wedding photographer I was thrilled!  We photographed their engagement session at Doug's family farm just outside of Chaska-it was a beautiful summer evening and we got to play with the brand new tractor!!  Kim has this radiant smile bursting with joy and the way Doug can make her laugh is adorable!  I am so excited for their winter wedding!  Congratulations once again Kim and Doug on your engagement!

BOOGERS and All Things Boy! I have had the honor of photographing Caleb since he was just a little boy, so when Caleb's Mom inquired for his 4-year session I was excited!  Both Caleb and his big brother August have always made me laugh -- they are such light-hearted fun boys, full of silly jokes and so much personality!  As you can imagine boy sessions are much different than girls session, we talk about all things boys.  Well, for Caleb boogers was the topic!  We talked about animals, as well as many other things but every time he yelled "BOOGERS!!" he would get the biggest smile and the cutest laugh.  Not only was Caleb's session a blast, he was also my very first session in the new studio here in Eagle Lake and he set the tone for many more smiles and laughs to come!  Enjoy a few of my favorite photos from his session, hard to believe this guy is 4 years old already!

Miss Maggie's One Year Session! I have had the honor of photographing little Maggie since she was born - it has been so much fun to watch her grow!  I was so excited for her one year old session -- not only was she my second session in the new studio, she rocked every little outfit we did! She is full of energy, loves to play peek-a-boo, climb on just about anything and her little giggle is the best!  Congratulations Zac and Tara - you survived year one!  Enjoy my favorites from her session!
