Newborn Baby Boy - In Home

Happy Wednesday Friends!  Today is your lucky day because you get to meet Mr. Handsome.  Born on Valentine's Day, he was only 11 days new when I photographed him at home.   I photographed both his big sisters when they were brand new too so this was a pretty special moment to photograph them all together.  Getting a new sibling is a pretty awesome.

We are so excited to announce the grand opening of our second photography studio location in River Falls, Wisconsin.  We have lovingly had our studio in St. Paul for the past six years but it's time for us to move on.  The St. Paul studio has been such a wonderful home to start and grow my business and meet some great friends along the way.  We have officially decided to let that location go and focus on creating a better client experience at our new location and we invite you to celebrate with us!  When: Friday, June 3rd and Saturday, June 4th Time: 11:00-3:00Where: 112 N Main Street, River Falls, WI 54022 (A short beautiful 30 minute drive from the cities).  We'd love for you to come and help us introduce our new studio to the neighborhood.  There will be treats, drawings for prizes and of course a photo booth.  And don't ever forget... You make me smile.  xoxo *current BRP clients will receive a discount with their first session booked with me at the new studio.  Travel fees for me to come to the cities will also be waived for all current clients.     This image is a digital make up of what we are considering for the windows.  So exciting! All images are created and copyright of Brooke Ringdahl Photography.  

Twin Cities Mom - Guest Post

Hello I'm so very excited to share with you our first ever guest blog post.  Introducing... Mrs. Lara Engh, mother of two beautiful lil peanuts I've been able to photograph since they were a sparkle in mom and dad's eyes.  xoxo Hello. Lara here, I'm happily married with two amazing little ones. My son, Asher, who will soon be one and my daughter Isla who is a big three year old already.Here is me, my husband Jason and our lovely lil ones.  Only two missing are the dogs.  My husband, Jason, and I both work full time outside of the home. Our days are very typical of a young family, and very busy. Most week nights, we have 2-3 hours with our kids after work, which includes getting dinner on the table, bath time, play time and bed time routines. I cherish these few hours I get with my kiddos, especially because I don't even get them every night. There are some evenings that work keeps me away until after bed time and I miss out on it completely.With my position, it'd be very easy to continue to work once I get home, however, we've implemented a no work policy until after the kids are in bed for both my husband and I. Without it, one of us would end up working, I'm sure. Turning everything off has really allowed us to focus on family during that time. Not only does that make for happier kids, but happier parents too. We get to laugh and play, and ...

Hello friends.  Happy Thursday.  Can you believe we are already to the end of the first week of May?  I want to know what the magic is to make time slow down.  You know how people are always telling you to slow down and enjoy.  That's great and all but can someone tell me how?  Please?  This is exactly why I'm introducing guest bloggers.  Not to save me time because I'm a pretty fast writer and have a lot to say so it's not that.  It's because I want to hear what YOU have to say.  I want to know what makes other mom's happy or what event they had that week or how one mom can make being a working mom seem so easy and how another stay at home mom can be so fabulous.  So this brings me to you, friends.  Do you know someone that would be perfect for this guest post?  Do you know someone that has a fabulous story to share?  Please have them email me at brooke@brookeringdahlphotography.com with your ideas.  I can't wait to start reading them all!  And because no post is ever complete without an image I bring to you my family session I did all by myself with my fancy new clicker.  It's a game changer really!  I absolutely hate being photographed because the woman I know is never the woman I see but I chose to do it for my daughter and my family.  How I feel about myself and how I look ...

5 Reasons why you should have your maternity photos taken...

There are many more than five reasons to have your maternity photos professionally taken, no doubt.  Today though, I will let you know the top 5 as you're considering whether or not to have them done.  5. Once your baby belly is gone it's gone!  Well for the most of us anyhow.  It is a wonderful bonding moment between you and your partner.  It can be great for siblings to connect with baby before it arrives too.  4.  It can be your time to get creative.  Play with the baby belly and have fun.  Show your baby-to-be how fun it's parents were before they arrived.  3.  Maternity photos can be perfect artwork for the nursery.  What a sweet image of baby in mom's belly to adorn the walls.  2.  Because... you are beautiful!  xoxo 1.  The #1 reason to have maternity photos taken isn't even for you.  It is for your baby inside.  I adore seeing my mom in pictures when she was pregnant with me.  I can only imagine Lily looking through my images as she becomes pregnant one day on her own.  Possibly deciding if she should have some taken herself.  We all know that answer! All images are created and copyright of Brooke Ringdahl Photography.  xoxo

This sweet lil lady loves to dress up and put on make up just like mommy.  When her mom told me this we had to create a Parisian diva look for her three year photos and here are our results... Like what you see?  Want to create something similar for your little one?  Contact Brooke with your thoughts and she will help make them a reality with you.  xoxo All images are created and copyright of Brooke Ringdahl Photography.

As in THREE BOYS!  I have been photographing this beautiful family for many years and many milestones and I feel so lucky to be their chosen photographer and family friend.  I like to get close to my clients as I learn about them and I photograph them at some of their most intimate family moments and I couldn't feel more honored.  Other than the red noses and cheeks you wouldn't be able to tell it was FREEZING cold out that day.  Enjoy...   All images are created and copyright of Brooke Ringdahl Photography. ©
