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!!

Border Collie Fun!

Roni is a 6 year old border collie with so much personality and spunk!  Her owner, Tom, contacted us awhile back to set up this session to capture Roni.   Tom has had all of his pets photographed around this same age and proudly displays them in his home. He knew that Roni is the "perfect" age for her portraits.  We couldn't agree more! She was darling and so well behaved!!  The result? Stunning portraits of Roni - and some lovely images of Tom and Roni together that are so heartwarming.  We can't wait to meet Tom's other dog, Sarge, once Sarge is ready for his photography debut!!

Hannah- Class of 2014

Just a flashback to one of last fall's high school senior sessions!  Hannah is a current high school senior getting ready to graduate this spring.  We love our high school seniors and the energy and excitement they bring to the studio! Hannah amazed us with her involvement in her school during her senior year and the commitments she had made to various activities!
We are in the midst of preparing for our Class of 2015 senior sessions- in fact, our first session is in a couple of weeks!!  We are also creating senior party invitations for all of our graduates.  Melissa loves designing these invites!
Can't wait to meet the seniors of 2015 this spring/summer! Call us soon if you have a current junior to reserve your appointment early!

Sweet kisses!!

Who wouldn't want to smother this little guy with kisses?!?!  We loved having Greyson to the studio for his 6 month portraits-and little did we know that not only was he sitting up on his own, but he was also crawling, pulling himself up on furniture and generally motoring around quite well!!  (let's just say, he has got great genes!!) We created the BEST VALENTINES CARD EVER for this sweet family to send out this year!
We can't wait to see what Greyson is doing when he comes back for his year old portraits this summer! (at this rate, he may be running marathons!!)

A little Jamaica on a cold day!!

On this cold wintery day in Minnesota, we thought everyone could use a little bit of "Jamaica" to warm them up!! Jamaica, our furry friend, that is!!  Jamaica warmed our hearts a few weeks ago when she and her owner, Mark, came to the studio for her very own photo session! Jamaica's older "brother", Parker (who is a bit of a rock star himself in the studio with his very own collage on display!) had his own photo session awhile back so now it was Jamaica's turn! All decked out with a gorgeous hot pink collar, Jamaica dazzled us during her session!!  Her portraits will now be added to Parker's portraits at home to make it complete.  Next up: Parker and Jamaica together someday soon!!!

Isaac is sitting up!!

Baby Isaac came back to us not long ago once he was sitting up like a big boy all on his own!  How sweet is he?  Of course, he brought his toy elephant with him to this session. Remember these adorable images from Isaac's newborn session? Click here:

The session wouldn't be complete without big brother John coming along, too!  Love these brothers!  We cannot wait to see Isaac at his one year old session later this year!  So fun to see this lovely family!!

Best of Woodbury 2014

Last week, we got all dressed up and had a night out on the town as we were invited to the Best of Woodbury Awards as Miroslavich Photography was nominated for Best Photographer.  Votes were cast by readers of the Woodbury Magazine last fall.  We were super thrilled to be nominated as the studio moved to Woodbury just over a year ago!  So, you can imagine our delight and excitement when it was announced that Miroslavich Photography WON!!!  Melissa hurried on stage to accept the award among many of our local business friends and acquaintances!  What an awesome evening!  Not only was it a huge honor to be awarded Best Photographer but to socialize and be in the presence of other amazing local businesses was such a pleasure!  Thank you to all of our clients, families and friends who voted us Best Photographer!  We are so fortunate to be a part of such an incredible community!!  THANK YOU!!!

New Year, New Families!

Every year we are fortunate to meet new families who come to us to capture their family portrait.  We were delighted to meet this family and get to know them this year!  Creating a stunning family portraits for their home was an honor for us!  We know they will cherish them for a long time! And we hope to see them again over the years to come....
