Tell Me A Story July 2017

A little outing to a local West Fargo Park.  It's great to have a little extra time to do some exploring.  Over the Fourth of July weekend we took a little time to explore a waterfall and pond within the park.  I think the thing that was the very best was discovering that there was a family of ducks living in the reeds on the pond and seeing the reaction of the dog and my son to them.

Tell Me A Story for June

Before we know it summer will be over and it will be back to school.  I think of school just getting out as I write this because my guy brought sunflower seeds home from school to grow.  Last year his seed got dumped in his backpack and we weren't able to save it.  This summer however I am determined that these little seeds will grow.  It is such a fun activity that can span the length of summer and be a season for you to enjoy an activity that you can do together that brings joy.

This post is a part of a blog circle where we get together and tell our personal stories for the month.  Please join Sharleen here as she tells her story.

To All The Superhero Dads!

To all the superhero dads happy Father's Day!

Life is so crazy busy with work, activities and everyday chores.  Everything you do to keep the wheels turning is so appreciated.  

Let your superhero cape fly and have fun with your family.  Laugh, play games, and relax in your favorite chair!


If you would enjoy doing an activity with your favorite superhero dad and let him bust out his superhero moves with the kids.  Contact me here and let's plan a fun family session in the Fargo - Moorhead area or a location of your choice. 

Tell Me A Story, April - Fargo Family Photographer

This month has been a roller coaster of weather.  We had been having a beautiful glorious sun warming your face kind of spring weather and then we got some down in the dumps wet soggy snow.  Needless to say, I would like to hold onto the fun of these two with bubbles instead of thinking of the white stuff.  Our pup just goes so wild with leaping through the air catching the bubbles.  It is quite the scene to watch!

Birthday Celebration - Fargo Photography

Tell Me A Story - February 2017

It is hard to believe that it has already been a year.  It is so amazing how such a little tiny life can weave their way into every little aspect of your life.  She has helped mend broken hearts, been a playmate, a snuggle buddy and a travel companion.  And also don't forget she is a constant source of amusement.  She loves the attention that she is paid in return for being all these things to us and as she was celebrated she seemed to relish her moment in the sun!

When we brought her home and picked her up at the airport.

Explore Lifestyle Photography on Film

Lifestyle Photography on Film - Tell Me A Story Jan. 2017

I took these images while following an assignment from a workshop.  For the most part we were using digital for the captures but I took some with film.  It just solidified why I love film so much.  Maybe it has to do with how my childhood was captured but even more so the delicious look of film and holding on to history.  I know for sure I am a nostalgic person.

This post is also a part of our Tell Me A Story blog circle so please continue on to see Arthur's beautiful work.

Making His Santa Letter

Tell Me a Story - December 2016

Time to bring a close to 2016 and bring in a new year!  It has been fun continuing on with this talented group telling our monthly stories.  This year instead of going to see Santa we opted to write him a letter.  Their are many awesome letters to be found on Pinterest that are great and people who are sharing their talents in making them.  Check them out it was fun to find the perfect Santa letter to be sent.

Please visit Kim next as she shares her beautiful pictures for the Month of December.

Tell Me A Story / November 2016 Fargo

Fargo in November

The weather was so beautiful for the the month of November.  By this time of the year we have already taken the winter coats, snow pants, and boots out of the closet.  I couldn't pass up this day to spend some time in the park on a day where all that gear wasn't needed.


Please visit Sharleen as she shares her month of November.

Fall in West Fargo

Time for another installment of Tell Me A Story!  As a creative I love to try my hand at different ways of capturing our life.  I love video and capturing the movement as it happens.  Fall here in West Fargo brings out a whole bunch of vibrant yellow and red leaves.  It is just beautiful!

Tell Me A Story - September 2016

Fall is here now and the first day of school came so quickly.  It is hard getting into that routine again after the little more carefree days of summer.  It is hard to go back especially since the first day of school was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine.

Please visit Emily as she shares her September with you.

At the beginning of the year

How the year began.

It had been decided that for the month we were going to share whatever it was that we felt like sharing and it bought me back to how the year began.

At Christmas time when I have a little extra time to think about the upcoming year I usually start with what kind of projects with photography I want to do for the year.  I think at this time it was just meant to be as I saw a call to participate in a all film 365.  It is challenging me and keeping me going on the hard days and here is why.

In March we had to say goodbye to our little Yorkie who had weaved her way into all our lives in immeasurable ways.  My children had her doing all that a playmate would do and here is the proof.

Boy and puppy nurse

As hard as that was and still is we have this new little addition. We are loving her and she keeps us busy with her antics.  Here she is in an image taken on film and one that I was ecstatic has been featured on a photography website. 

Boy and Yorkie puppy

So film and this little puppy are bringing much joy after a rocky start to the year.
