The Ones That Mean The Most | KDB Photography St Francis Lifestyle

We all want that perfect family picture hanging on our wall. Trust me I want that perfect picture on my wall too. And while I want to be the photographer to take those family pictures for you. I also want you to take those everyday images yourself. I have thousands of pictures on my computer, however, out of those thousands, not many are from my day to day life. It happens to us all, we get busy, we don’t want to drag out the camera or our house is a mess, and we don’t want it showing up in the picture. I get that, I understand, but it doesn’t matter, just take those everyday pictures. In a year, in a month or even a week, you are going to look back at those images and be so grateful you took the time. You don’t need an expensive camera, all you need is the motivation to take the pictures, the ones that matter the most. Life is going on around us, all we need to do is stop and appreciate it. I’m so glad I did.

Jasper Day 10 | KDB Minnesota Newborn Photographer

As you will see from the photos below, he was awake for most of his session, but he was happy when he was awake. Thanks for choosing KDB Photography Dan & Crystal. And thanks for ALL the laughs Grandma Wendy & Auntie Heather. It made the session go by way too fast.

Welcome Baby Elliott!!!

A few weeks ago I had the privilege to photograph this sweet little newborn, Elliott, he is just perfect! Although he made his appearance a little later than his due date, this little lover was a perfect newborn poser. From his tiny little toes, to his chubby little cheeks he made my day. Thank you Megan & Mitch for choosing KDB Photography to capture these important moments. I truly enjoyed our session.

Long Distant Relationship | KDB St Francis Family Photography

Jessica and her family live over seas and every year when they come back to visit family, they also come back to visit me. I love seeing how much the girls have grown up over the last year. They spirit and sense of adventure always makes for a fun and memorable session. Thanks so much for saving a few hours for me on your trip home. Enjoy the rest of your time home, and I wish you best of luck in your next adventure!

I seriously love this time of year. I know I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, I LOVE FALL. I love the warm fall colors, I love how everything smells when I walk into the woods, I enjoy meeting new people and I love catching up with old friends. Which is exactly what I did last week with Mark and the three beautiful ladies in his life. Oh my gosh, it’s sessions like this that it’s a good thing the sun is going down, because I really didn’t want to stop. Even despite the sprinkles that were coming down everyone was so cooperative.

Mark and Angela, thanks for the wonderful session, you two truly are blessed. Enjoy the sneak peek.

My Madison 2013 | KDB Photography

There is not enough room on this page to say all the great things I want to say about my Daughter Madison. She is such a humble young lady, that it makes me so very proud to say she is my daughter. I wish I could take credit for her huge heart, but I think it is just who she is. She truly does bring out the best in everyone she is around, and it makes me smile when I hear others feel the same way. She makes me laugh and makes me cry, she is the one her friends lean on for support. She is a girl who loves to read, loves country music, loves to dress up and be pretty. But then there is the part of her that loves the outdoors, from bow hunting to fishing from hiking in to wakeboarding, she is not afraid to try new things. This is a girl who really does try it all, and it makes me proud as her Mom to watch her succeed in her accomplishments. Madison no matter what path you take, you are bound for great things. Stay sweet and honest.

Fall is such a busy time of year for me that sometimes I don’t get the opportunity to stop and take sweet images of my own kiddos. Well, tonight the weather was gorgeous, and the light was perfect. I have been wanting to try out a new spot, one where I have never shot before, and the results were exactly what I was hoping for. Oh how much I love my Tyson and Aryn. They are not always perfect, and they fight like crazy, but they are mine and I wouldn’t trade them for anything. Love you two!

The Beckers | KDB St Francis MN Family Photographer

All families have their own dynamic, the Becker’s seem to have a few. The first is busy, the second is laughter and the third is LOVE. I really mean that. There is no way to fake the way this family feels about each other. And in case you don’t believe me, take a look for […]

Syliva and Vivian are no strangers to my blog, as is their big brother Oliver. However, getting them all three together in one photo is sometimes a challenge. But tonight these three were all smiles and giggles. What a great night it was. I’m so happy to get to watch these three kiddo’s grow up.

A Mommy Moment | KDB Anoka County Photographer

October 1st, 2013

As a Mom to three great kids, I know how fast the time goes. When your baby or child is in a certain stage, we can’t wait for him or her to be able to do the next stage. From crawling to walking or preschool to kindergarten, middle school to high school, we are always […]

 

As a Mom to three great kids, I know how fast the time goes. When your baby or child is in a certain stage, we can’t wait for him or her to be able to do the next stage. From crawling to walking or preschool to kindergarten, middle school to high school, we are always excited for that next stage. But then as our children get older and we look back, we may not have always appreciated what they were doing right then in that moment. I know I am guilty of it, but I am thankful I have pictures to help me remember the good times we had during each of those stages and who we were as a family during that time. One of my favorite quotes is from the Dreamworks Movie Kung Fu Panda, “Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery, Today is GIFT that is why it is called the Present”. Today really is a gift, and sometimes we don’t realize how great it really was until we are looking back at it.

Laura, I hope one day when you are looking back at these pictures of you and your sweet baby boy, you will remember how great of a day it was. Thank you for letting me capture these for you.
