2015 Seniors & Some big changes!

I am officially finished with my season of 2015 Senior sessions! This was a great year of senior sessions for me, and I had a hard time choosing which photos to feature here. I really enjoyed photographing all of the beautiful young women and handsome young men. I hope all of their great personalities shine through on these photos! Be sure and follow this post to the very end for some BIG news for Resolutions Photography!

OK, now for my big news! I have good news and bad news. First, the bad news. My husband has accepted a great new job in Mandan, ND and we are moving to the Bismarck area. We are actually moving into the farmhouse I grew up in (a lifelong dream of mine!). My parents will be retiring and moving from Horace/the farmhouse into Bismarck. This means lots of transitioning and moving for our whole family. I apologize if this means my edit times will be a bit longer than usual (and I have also had more absence from my blog and facebook than I would like). Now for the good news! I am not disappearing completely! Although I will be losing my beautiful studio, I still plan on doing weekend shoots in Fargo during the months of nice weather. Even though this means all outdoor shoots (as far as I know right now), I will be more flexible to shooting at various locations in the Fargo-Moorhead area when I am in town. I am also expanding my business to the Bismarck area, so if you have referrals for me there, I would much appreciate it! I will probably not be booking anything until spring, 2015. Until then, please stay with me here and on facebook for regular posts of sessions I have done this summer and fall and for updated news about when and where I will be booking next. I have loved getting to know so many of you over the past almost six years, and look forward to the future for Resolutions Photography!

Luke & Autumn

Most people who know me know that I do not photograph weddings. I had a taste of it one summer and that was the end of my wedding photography career. When my niece asked me to photograph her wedding, I agreed (although a little begrudgingly). Part of me worried about making a mistake. Part of me worried it would be too much for me to photograph the wedding AND enjoy the long-awaited day. But, what I didn't realize until that day was that photographing her wedding was an absolute privilege. Because I was the one behind the lens, I got to have a first-hand look at all of the beautiful moments throughout the day...when her mama helped her with her dress...when Luke saw her for the first time...the sweet look her daddy gave her right before they walked down the aisle...all of it. To say the day was perfect and beautiful would be an understatement. It was perfect. Beautiful. God's presence could be clearly felt throughout the entire day. And, I got to be there for all of it. Thank you again, Autumn and Luke, for these wonderful memories. I cannot wait to see what God has for you both!

Bobb family

This is one of my favorite sessions I have done in awhile. Although we did a few different locations for this session, the ones we did in this wheat field were my absolute favorites. The best part of these photographs is how you can see the love radiating out of them, it is so unmistakable. This session was one of those I had the privilege of doing that makes me remember why I love doing this. Anything can get monotonous if you do it enough, even something as creative and passion-driven as photography. It's nice to have those sacred moments that you are blessed enough to be able to capture with a camera to remember why you started doing this in the first place.

Summer Mini-Sessions!

It was a HOT summer night for our summer mini sessions at Sohljem farm! But, after having to reschedule twice for weather related issues, a little heat was not going to stop us! (Although it did take its toll on me toward the end of the evening...right, Gaffney family?) I am so happy with these ultra-yummy images I ended up with. I plan on doing another day of mini-sessions in late fall. If you are interested in those, be watching my facebook to be notified of when I am booking for those sessions.
