Sporting Events

The busy spring/summer season is really hitting hard. We will be busy not only with Weddings, Families, High School Seniors, Children, but also with the evenings of photographing Sporting Events for surrounding and local areas. We keep hopping, but enjoy the fun and busy life-style. Watching these kids at sports events make me wish I was the one in the uniform playing the sport. I remember the days of playing sports, going home to eat, then off to play another sport...sure keeps you busy. Take care, have a wonderful day. It looks like the weather will be nice. Be safe out there if you are headed out for the Memorial weekend.

That's what is my daddy's name. Everyone calls him Red. No-one knows him by his real name, not even my mom when he proposed to her! She went home to tell her parents that Red proposed and that they were going to get married. They asked what his real name was, she replied " I don't know"!!! You come to my area or surrounding areas of Monticello, and EVERYONE knows Red. I come from a family of 8 kids, all of which we get along real well and really enjoy being together. Our days with (our Dad) Red are precious. We just got him out of the hospital yesterday after 5 days of trying to get him over a "hump" as they call it of Radiation. We all stop/call and spend those precious times with him. He loves to be out in his work shop making small projects for people to enjoy. He only charges his cost for those that want to buy something from him. It is being out in the shop woodworking that makes him happy besides being with family. The image of him was just a couple weeks ago, we want him back on his feet enjoying life. Enjoy your family. Get that portrait of your family. You'll never realize how important that portrait will be some day in the future. We can capture what is important to you....and us.
Send your prayers for my Dad. Thanks!

Lil' Cowgirl

Yep, someday she will be riding a real horse!!!??? Such a cute little girl. We had much fun with her and her mommy. It was her birthday. She sure was curious in the studio with all the lights going. Between her mommy and us and another friend, we captured many images for them to enjoy.
Short and sweet today, have yourself a great day!

Athletic People

Wow, these kids now-a-day really keep busy, studies, sports, social life-to be so young. It certainly keeps the parents young as well as they are constantly running around with them with all the involvement of a child's life. As a parent, you'll always be involved with your child, from birth, through school-age, into college then watching them get and so-on. We have lived it all and have enjoyed it through every step of the way. Now we are enjoying watching our grandchildren grow. They too are athletic, as that is the way their parents want them to be rather than sit around and watch TV all day. Athletics are good for you. My hubby and I are up rather early and start our day out working out, so we too can stay young to enjoy life with our family. Our family is very important to us, we hope your family is as important, that you don't want to miss out on our Family Special Portrait Session, call us for information.

Something Old....

This moment actually brought tears to my eyes. The Brides Grandma came into the dressing room at the resort where the wedding was held. In her hands she held something very near and dear to her heart, something OLD. You've heard that saying, "something OLD, something NEW, something BLUE, something BORROWED. Now she was handing that "near and dear" item over to her grand-daughter so she could treasure it. What Grandma had to say literally did bring the tears to the eyes. It was so special to be able to be there for that moment and to capture it. These are the times that you as a Bride will treasure forever. Call us....we will capture that moment for you. That moment that is "near and dear" to YOUR heart.

Daddy's Little Girl

"OK Honey, this is your big day, are you ready?" Is this what Daddy was saying as the Bride to be and her Daddy walked out of where she got ready? I don't know, I don't want to know what the conversation was, I just wanted to be there those last moments of the two of them together as Daddy and Daughter. Oh, don't get me wrong, they will ALWAYS be Daddy and Daughter, but this was those last "special" moments together. I love to be there and capture those moments, hence the name "Magic Moments" Photography. The moments people have together are moments to capture, to treasure. My moments with my Daddy continue daily....I stop to visit him daily (when I'm not out of town photographing), but I will call him. Those moments with him I will treasure forever. Those days may come to an end (as he is suffering of an fast growing cancer) and I want to be with him forever in my heart as he is in mine. Daddys and Daughters have a special love between them. Mommys and Daughters have a special love as well. Let us capture moments that are us at 763-295-2727.

Destination Wedding

Oh how fun! This beautiful Bride wanted creativity, romance, fun....we did have fun, not only with the Bride but also with the family members and their guests. Follow my Blog for a few days, I will share with you images that we created of their Special Day.
I hope all of you Mom's out there had a GREAT Mothers Day. I heard from all three of my children. They are special as I'm sure your children are just as special. They all have a special place in my heart. I also contacted my Mom. This week I plan to treat her to coffee and breakfast and special time together. She has everything she needs. She enjoys time with her children as well. She has 8 of us. Guess she was a busy Mom-and special to all 8 of us kids.
Have a beautiful day!

All Thumbs Up

This Bride and Groom were so fun to work with. They were all thumbs up in regards to being Mr & Mrs.....I must say, I believe that they were giving us the thumbs up for the Great work we did for their wedding day? We will have fun while still being the professional photographers that you would expect. PLEASE don't let a relative or a friend who has "the camera" do your wedding photography for your special day. You'll never know how many people we have listened to wishing they had a Professional Photographer at their wedding....we know how to keep the day going, stress free and capture the images you want, require, need and still have fun. That "relative" or "friend" photographing your wedding might get "the shots", but are they of quality color?, well posed or captured?, can they be printed by a Professional Lab or do they just get printed at the "local big box" store? Again, please call...we have some available weekends yet for this year and openings yet for 2010. Our number is 763-295-2727.

Farmin' Days

Do you like getting your fingers dirty? This little guy seems to enjoy the Farm and Animals. I could just imagine him on a tractor-toy tractor that is at this age, however, who knows what his future will bring?
Future? Hummmmm..."maybe I should call Magic Moments Photography soon to get that scheduled session on their appointment book", you say. Yes, I agree. Our family sessions are booking up into August already. In between we are photographing the little league programs and High School Seniors, not to say that the weekends are busy with Weddings. Don't delay. You deserve the best date-not to mention a great photographer who will work with you-FREE consultation. Call us today. 763-295-2727.

Wow, to be so new and the only thing in the world to worry about is to eat, sleep and be held by the one(s) you love....
Life is good. Cherish life. Enjoy life. Capture life, moments to cherish, memories. The days come and they go. Life can slip by before you know it. Let Magic Moments Photography capture those important moments of life. It could be your Special Wedding Day, or your family that you cherish. We can capture what is important to you. Don't hesitate. I know that Spring is finally here, Summer is just around the corner, and before you know it, Fall will be upon us. Don't let this year be "another" year of saying "Someday I'll get that Family Portrait Taken", or "I wish I had called Magic Moments Photography to photograph my wedding day rather than a friend or relative." We are only a phone call away. Call us at 763-295-2727 to chat about what is important to you. YOU are important to us!!!
