    Crazy Love {Beautiful Family}

    Friday, April 25th, 2014

    edina family photographer, teresa hermes photographerTheirs is the kind of whirlwind love story reserved for fairytales and romance novels – the kind of story you don’t think can happens to real people. And what makes it all the more amazing is to witness… it up close and capture the bliss on film. The way they look at each other, interact, and the bond they share with their beautiful, happy baby boy. Thanks McGuires! xo

    Kudos to mom for the great idea of letting her kids wear their ‘active gear’ and be able to combine annual photos with doing some of their favorite activities outdoors at the park! Irish… dance kicks and leaps, soccer, and football were all on the agenda. Super fun and a good workout too! Especially Margaret as it took me a little while to find the ‘perfect spot’ to showcase her awesome leaps. What a good sport! ‘Like’ our page! www.teresahermesphotography.com

    Spring Blossoms and Spring Photos in Minneapolis… Will the time EVER arrive??

    Friday, May 3rd, 2013

    Just a quick glimpse at a handful of photo sessions I did in MID-APRIL in 2012! Amazing flowering tress both at Lake Harriet in Minneapolis and Aamodt’s Apple Orchard in Stillwater. I can’t help but wonder if we’ll even have them late this year? None of the trees I’ve seen even show a hint of a bud :( Anyhow, here’s to dreaming! :) www.teresahermesphotography.com

    Good thing I was able to spend a little time with these two cuties in our quick burst of spring weather!!  In their Easter outfits on Holy Saturday we were able to have a little fun outside. By the looks of the snow you’d have thought this was last year :)

    Where do I begin! This beautiful and sweet tween arrived to my studio ON HER BIRTHDAY with the most sparkly eyes, curls to die for, and a vivacious personality all I could think was ‘lucky me’!!  :)   She is an aspiring actress set to follow her dreams and has some big plans. I love when people actually set out to make progress on those dreams they’ve had in their hearts and their heads for a long time, instead of just talking about them and wishing and wondering. I admire that!

    Here are just a few of the photos from our afternoon – we took so many! I could have played all day. Her mom was so awesome the 3 of us just had a great time sharing and telling stories – I love sessions like that!

    All the best to you Skye – break a leg next month!: )

    Have photographed these two a few times over the past 3 or 4 years and everytime is full of laughs!  I love their energy and wish I could bottle it up for a day when I’m out of laughs – and just let it explode and help me along :)

    Lake Harriet Family Fun {sneak peek family photography}

    Sunday, November 18th, 2012

    premiere minneapolis family photographer, edina family photographer, 50th and france family photographerOh how I love Magical Lake Harriet in the fall! Ok, well anytime of year!  It always draws me in under it’s spell. A place I’ve found myself hooked for half my life. And then, a place I have fond memories of visiting as a child too. I’ve watched it evolve and change ever so slightly over time yet the same feeling remains.

    Well this family and I go way back as I had the pleasure of meeting both boys in the hospital when they were just a few days old. Needless to say, I’ve watched them grow up being we lived nearby and our children are close in age. So when it was their turn for photos I found my camera poised and frozen until their ‘whhhhaaat!?!…sort of snapped me out of it :) Apparantly I was ogling/smilng/pausing a bit too long for their comfort,  I’m sure. But what I was marveling at was how grown up they were, how handsome. When did they get so big? I was sure it was just a few weeks ago their mom and I were having coffee at Caribou and our newborns were sleeping in the car seats at our feet….


    I Love My Mom

    Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

    One thing you need to know about me is that at every session, regardless of how you look or feel – I WILL insist that I take your photo with your kids. And your spouse. I’m sorry, but that is just the way it is. Wait-  I don’t apologize! It’s for your own good and you will thank me later, I promise! I can guarantee you are beautiful JUST.AS.YOU.ARE.  Yoga pants, pony tails, lack of make up, even a lack of shower need not get in our way. Because you know what? Your kids think you are the best and most beautiful mom in the world regardless of the fancy clothes or perfect hairdo and you owe it to them to give them an image to hold onto.

    So! Even tho I forewarn new clients sometimes they don’t listen :) Sometimes they fight me on it and sometimes, only sometimes I let it slide. But then when the session is over I feel like I failed them – to not at least have documented something I could have made black and white if necessary and showed them that the camera doesn’t pick up on split ends or bad breath the way they are imagining it (yes, I have had that conversation with people over the years!!)   Ok but REPEAT CLIENTS don’t have an excuse. So if you come to do photos for a second time you just know- I will have you in a photo, like it or not.

    On Saturday my friend Heather arrived with her 3 BEAUTIFUL children that have the personality to match all of those good looks and says we are just photographing the kids. ‘Uh-huh,OK’ I say but since this is the second time I’ve taken photos of the kids I know I won’t let it slide :) Last summer it was 110 degrees in the shade and I think she had run about 100 miles before the session so I did let it go but not this time. And LOOK! Will you just LOOK AT THAT!  I made her get in and the kids were sooooo thrilled they just glommed onto her and it was immediate magic unfolding on my camera. As I looked through my camera at them clamouring to get as close as possible to their mom I was giddy. I feel like this is the kind of photo that every mom should have with their kids.  *I*  want this photo with my kids! cheek to cheek, with both of them! All of us smiling but not because we are supposed to but because we are just so happy to be there. That was how this was – so spontaneous, so joyful, and just so happy to be there, with their mom :)
