Kaitlin Senior Session | St. Croix Lutheran High School, West St. Paul, MN Photographer

Kaitlin is beautiful inside and out. This girl is a superstar, and I enjoyed having her be in the spotlight for her senior session earlier this summer, as well as being on my 2016 Senior Model Team. She chose to go to historic downtown Stillwater...which is a great choice I may add, because it is a town filled with so much character and personality. And her session images are GORGEOUS - I love them all! Enjoy this blog with highlights from her senior session!

Remembering Dad | Kayla's Senior Photo Session | Lilydale Regional Park, MN

Remembering Dad | Kayla's Senior Photo Session | Lilydale Regional Park, MN

Get the tissues ready! This is a glimpse at a photo session featuring my 2015 senior model team alumni Kayla, along with her sister, in a heartwarming tribute senior photo session with their late father's Harley-Davidson motorcycle. A session like this was a first for me, but it was so powerful, so emotional, so meaningful. I apologize now if anyone gets teary-eyed, because I know that I did a few times. Congratulations to Kayla on her high school graduation. May the tribute with dad and his bike be all that you envisioned it to be! -Monda the Photographer

Surprise for Mom | Bloomington, Minnesota Family Photographer

Surprise for Mom | Bloomington, Minnesota Family Photographer

Check out this "secret" family portrait session from fall 2014! Two sisters, along with their husbands and children gathered on a chilly Saturday morning to create some special memories to give as a Christmas gift for their mom!  I think one of my most favorite parts of this family photo session were the many little Angry Bird characters that the two younger boys had brought with them to play with. You will see that the Angry Bird toys also got in a few photos, too! It made the boys happy to have their favorite play toys involved in their photo shoot. It made me happy that I could capture the boys as they were goofy with their different Angry Bird characters. An impromptu family pile-up was also part of our fun morning. This group clearly loves to be around each other and have a great time! I feel very lucky to have spent time with them!
