Children Photography: Peyton


Keri brought Peyton in for her 3 yr old birthday session.

Here’s her magnet – part of our Birthday Club.

Baby Photography: Ainsley


Happy Birthday Ainsley!

Being one year old is so cool!

Baby Photography: Jake at one year old




You never know what you are going to get when you are working with babies. Sometimes the outtakes are fun to show off too. It’s nice to have that perfect smile, but along the way we can get lots of attitude like we got from Jake this afternoon.

Baby Photography: Wyatt at 3 months


This is one of ElizaBeth’s favorite images.

Check out Mom’s ring in Wyatt’s hand.

Relationships make this job fun: Wyatt’s Mom was ElizaBeth’s Kinship child starting when she was 4 years old.

Baby Photography: Taylor



We’ve known Taylor’s parents a long time…way before they got married…so it’s fun to watch their family grow. Taylor came in for her 3 month pictures and we thought we would share a couple.

Baby Photography: Casey and Kari are going to have a baby!


Casey and Kari came from Pierre, South Dakota, for a maternity session on Saturday morning. It seems just like yesterday (really two years ago) that we photographed their wedding.

We thought that we’d post a teaser image right away. The rest of them will be processed in a couple of days.

FYI – ElizaBeth will be out of the studio until Tuesday. Mike will be in and out of the office on Monday. We will return all messages ASAP.

Baby Photography: Dillon


Dillon hangs out at the studio a lot. Mom works for us one day a week.

While Mom does her thing, Dillon keeps a close eye on her. He’s almost to the point of being mobile…What are we going to do then?

Feige New Year’s Card




Imajen is celebrating her first birthday this week. She came down from Brookings with Mom and Grandma last Friday for her Birthday Club session.

Briella and family


Briella came in for her 6 month pictures as part of our Baby Plan.

Mom and Dad joined in for a family picture just in time for Christmas.



This morning’s baby session was Macy. She was all dressed up for Christmas.

Wow do the babies grow up fast. It seems just like yesterday that we did Macy’s newborn pictures.

Yes, there is still time to schedule your family session and get your pictures and cards back in time for Christmas.

We are in the midst of the Christmas rush now with cards and wall portraits. ElizaBeth is finishing up designing the wedding and senior albums.

Baby Plan: Jack turns one



Jack is turning 1 yr old next week.

Wow, does time fly and the little ones change so fast.

Now we really haven’t promoted our Baby Plan and Birthday Club, but that dosn’t mean we aren’t busy having fun with little ones.

You have to have patience with babies. We don’t just allow 15 minutes and herd you through here like cattle. No, we take our time and let the kids get comfortable first and then we can take pictures.

You get to pick out your images right away, saving huge amounts of time and gas. Now if we didn’t quite get what you wanted the first time, we can easily take a few more without having to schedule a new appointement. The longer the kids are here, the more they seem to like it. Our studio is big enough that they can run and play and still be in plain sight.

Now Jack was happy enough when he came this morning but the smiles and giggles took a while to come out. ElizaBeth started playing peekaboo with Jack and before long we had big grins. We kept Jack leaning over the end of the couch and brought one of our lights over to him.

Like most 1 yr olds, Jack is still working on getting this walking thing mastered so we dug out a box for him to lean against to keep his balance and make him feel more secure.
