Last night I experienced what is possibly the most amazing event in a person’s life. I had the honor of being chosen to document the amazing birth of baby Mason. He was born at 10:49 p.m. Saturday evening. Mason’s mommy was so strong; the delivery was completely natural, with almost no interventions from any health professionals. Being an observer of the whole thing was so inspiring. Lindsey took on each contraction with the strength of a team of oxen; she stayed in control and worked with each contraction. Even when it was discovered that Mason was “sunny side up”, Mommy refused to give up or give in, she was able to push him out, even after being in transition stage for hours, and having no sleep for over 24 hours. The human soul or spirit has such an amazing potential. Click here to see the (non-graphic version) slideshow. I am so grateful for being chosen to document this incredible event!
Yesterday was the nicest day of the year so far, and I got to spend it walking around Lake Minnetonka in Excelsior with Tara & Jordan. The sun was amazing & we had a lot of fun. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE SLIDESHOW

President Ronald Reagan enacted Proclamation 5890 in October of 1988 to recognize that each year, approximately a million pregnancies in the United States alone end in miscarriage, stillbirth, or the death of a newborn child. Reagan stated, “A national observance offers us the opportunity to increase our understanding of the great tragedy involved in the deaths of unborn or newborn babies. It also enables us to consider how, as individuals and communities, we can meet the needs of bereaved parents and family members… ”

I don’t know how I was so lucky to have been chosen to photograph Allison Falconer’s wedding, but thank you God! What an amazing, wonderful family, and what an incredibly beautiful wedding! It was difficult to decide which few images to post…there were so many wonderful moments captured! So, I have posted the image that I just lost it & cried…the moment in which Allison first appeared with her dad. It’s a good thing my camera hides my face, because tears were rolling! I also posted a few nice detail shots. I will post more as I complete all of my enhancements and edits on the images. My assistant Tom took the top image-what an awesome shot-thank you Tom! Congratulations Allison & Austin! I hope you are having a wonderful time in Hawaii!
