Happy Birthday Liv! A Golden Book Pajama Party

It seems like it was only yesterday I was driving to HCMC to document the first day of Miss Liv’s life.  Being able to walk beside her family has been an incredible blessing this year.  Not only was it great seeing Liv grow but being able to witness this season in the life of her family was incredible. Liv has two awesome parents who love her and her big-brother Reese with an awesome joy and understanding of the blessings they are.

Tonight I was able to spend the evening celebrating Liv, enjoying the beautiful August night, and hanging out with a bunch of adorable toddlers and their parents.

Thank you Heidi and Jonathan for letting me journey with you this year, for all the ways you’ve continued to model not only Christian parenting but living each day as a blessing from God.

Happy Birthday Liv!

Hello David | Newborn Portraits

David’s amazing Aunt Emily got in touch with me a couple months ago inquiring about a newborn package for a baby shower gift for her sister-in-law from the family. So thanks to David’s awesome aunt and uncle and grandparents I’ll get to walk alongside him and his parents and see all the amazing ways this little guy will grow over the coming year.  I can’t wait!  David was born a few weeks ago and was a rock-star this morning at our shoot. Added bonus, David will be baptized at the church I serve at in a few weeks.  I can’t wait to welcome him into God’s family.  Hopefully these images can bring a smile and a dose of cuteness to your weekend.  Be sure to check out the MegHuff Photography Facebook page to see his complete album in a few weeks.

While I was out {My Life}

About a month ago I decided I needed to take a bit of a break from doing any new sessions to catch up on some processing that needed to happen, take care of some other things I had going on at my other jobs, focus on school work, and enjoy a bit of summer fun.  That month seemed to have flown by and crawled all at once. I didn’t achieve the catching up on school-work goal, and there are still some shoots that I’m finishing up, but it was a very productive break in that I got to spend some extra time with the people in my life who make everything worthwhile. 🙂 So before getting back into the swing of shooting this week I thought I’d give you all a glimpse into my month.

Spent a lovely Birthday weekend on the St. Croix River.

Numerous visits to the Farmer’s Markets in St. Paul and Minneapolis

Celebrated my amazing mother turning 50!

Visited with family.

Watched a theater camp final performance, celebrated birthdays and got to spend lots of time with these crazy kids and their wonderful parents.

Spent Monday evenings loving on some neighborhood kids.

Spent time laughing and catching up with lots of friends from all over.  Visited new wineries and restaurants and got to see this cutie and her parents!

Completed my first 5k (walked…here’s hoping for a completed my first 5k ran post this fall).

Now. Back to it!

Bri the Amazing.

I have this friend named Bri. She’s amazing. Seriously. Caring, loving, artistic, hilarious, smart, encouraging, faithful-all words that can be used to describe her.   She has a unique and awesome way of seeing the world that challenges injustices, inspires action and makes you question the status quo.

She’s auditioning this weekend in Chicago for The Glee Project and needed some headshots to take with her. When she asked if I’d be willing to do it I was ecstatic! Mostly because of the above mentioned Bri-awesomeness.  But also because I think she’d be amazing on Glee and I want to do whatever I can to help her get there.

Which also includes a shameless plug for you to go to her audition video and click “like,” thus voting for her to be one of this Season’s cast members on the Glee Project.

Now, without further adieu, I would like to introduce you to Bri the amazing:

So now that you’ve been introduced to the amazing Bri go vote for her!
