A Boy and His Dog






We've had such fun photographing pets and owners for the Pet Feature in the Stone Mill Farms/Dancing Waters Connector Magazine!  Recently we met cute and spunky Duke, a 12-year-old Yorkshire Terrier, his equally spunky and handsome buddy Mason and Mason's lovely Mom Angie.  We had such fun playing with and photographing them! Mason was pretty excited to discover he got to pick out a sticker at the end of the session.  We bet he's going to be even more excited this Fall when a new baby joins this cute family!

Kobis the star!!!











Reeently, we began photographing for the local Stonemill Farms/Dancing Waters Connector magazine and were selected to be the exclusive photographer for their Pet Feature each month!  It has been a blast meeting and photographing local pets (and sometimes their family members).  Recently we met Kobis who is a bearded collie and one of his family members, Gwyneth, age 12.  Kobis, who is now 3 years old was adopted through Second Hand Hounds by Gwyneth's family when he was an 8 week old puppy.  Kobis was the star of the session and certainly loved his moment in the "spotlight"! Melissa so adored photographing him. What a sweet boy!!!

Carter-Class of 2014







It was very special for us to capture Carter's senior portraits! As a faithful reader of our blog, you may recall Carter's older brother, TJ, who came to us in 2012 for his senior session. (to refresh your memory, click on this link!  http://miroslavichphotography.blogspot.com/2012_05_01_archive.html ) Carter is just as charming and handsome as his older brother and we had such a fun time with this session! It was just at the end of hockey season-Carter plays for Totino Grace who made it to the Minnesota State hockey tournament this year- and we were able to catch one of the last days at one of our local outdoor rinks.  It is so meaningful when we can incorporate activities/sports that the seniors are passionate about in their life into their portraits!  We wish Carter all the best as he ventures off to the University of Missouri this fall! GO TIGERS!!

Blue eyed boy!








It started out as a 6 month old, blue eyed boy session. But Oliver was totally willing to "share" his time in the spotlight with his big brother and sisters!!  And what fun we had!!  2 year old sweet, loving Christopher adores his baby brother!! Free-spirited 7 year old Vivian had a blast being silly and funny with Melissa during the session and big sister, Isabelle, was definitely the "mother hen" of the group with her nurturing and sweet nature!  We adored their session and can't wait for Oliver's 1 year session this fall!!

Celebrating sisters!









We were so fortunate to meet this cute family recently after they were the winning recipient of our donated gift certificate at the Luther College Silent Auction! We love supporting education and schools! And we get to meet the best families!!

Sisters Brynn, 8, and Elise, 5, were a hoot to hang out with and photograph! Is there anything cuter than sisters?!?  They chatted Melissa up about everything girly-including dance, gymnastics, ballet, books and art! We wish they could have stayed all day!!  We loved watching the interaction between the sisters and the love and silliness that ensues!

Emily- Class of 2015





Can you believe that we photographed our first high school senior of the season in April?!?  Every year, senior photo session season gets earlier and earlier-and we couldn't be more excited!  The energy and excitement that these incredible young people bring to the studio is so revitalizing for us! (Especially after the long, hard winter we just experienced in the midwest!!)  We can't think of a better senior (or technically junior!!) to kick off the season with!! Emily was so sweet and lovely with the most gorgeous smile ever!  We can't wait to meet Emily's friends and classmates this summer for their senior session!!

Peek a boo- Evan is (not quite!) Two!!









As this sibling pair gets ready for a brand new baby brother due any day now, they came into the studio recently to capture Evan at 18 months of age and his big sis, Halle, at 12 years old!  Evan is a guy who LOVES his diggers and tractors-so much so we thought having his big tractor at the session would be super fun!!  Evan was initially perplexed about how (and why?) his prized possession was at the studio- and maybe even a little worried it wouldn't make it home?!?!  Although capturing Evan and his interaction with the tractor was priceless!!  Big sister Halle is becoming such a lovely young lady and hammed it up for the camera but letting us place the crown on her head-because what 12 year old doesn't still want to be a princess?!?  We can't wait til Halle turns 13 this fall so we can plan a photo session just for her!!!  And that new sibling- stay tuned for newborn images on the blog very soon!! TO BE CONTINUED......

Are you a Cat person or a Dog person?!?!








So- what are you?  A Cat person or a Dog person?!? The most recent issue of the Animal Humane Society's Animal Tracks magazine poses this important question with a double cover feature photographed by Melissa.  The author, Jeff Moravec set out to determine which species is preferred.  By giving each species its own super cute cover-it may lead the reader to have second thoughts to which one they do prefer!  Mission accomplished!  What do you think?  Click the link below to read the article (and see more of Melissa's images!) and then tell us- Dog person or Cat person?!? We are dying to know!

Pretty in Pink!








So far, 2014 has been the year of babies!! Newborns, 6 month olds, nearly year old babes- you name it!   With each new baby, we marvel at the new-ness and sweetness of each one! Baby Lauren came to us at just a few days old with her family including big brother Jack who is all of 21 months old. After almost 2 years of little boy cuteness, Mom is certainly excited to be adding pink into the mix!  And it seems to be Lauren's color! Next up-Jack's 2 year old session this summer when Lauren is closer to 6 months old and when we can be basking in the summer sun!!
And keep posted for more baby session blogs coming soon!  We can't get enough of these babies!!
