Lance and Annie :: Married

Posted on August 14, 2015

Lance and Annie were married in May at an adorable little church south of Rochester … the same church that Lance ministers for actually!  They said their “I do’s” in front of a church full of family AND members of the parish.  Afterwards, a light luncheon was served while everyone enjoyed the warm spring sunshine.  Both Lance and Annie were relaxed the entire day and it showed as they laughed with and hugged loved ones after the ceremony.

After the guests had left, the three of us snuck away to a nearby park preserve to shoot the images of them.  I love that they trusted me when I said the hike would be worth it.  We hiked down a hill with grass as tall as our waists and down along the river.  There was plenty of laughter from all three of us … but when we got to the spot I had been looking for it was even better than I had hoped … the ground was covered with bluebells.  I’m not kidding when I say it was almost magical!

Congratulations Lance and Annie!!!

I love weddings that are held at a location that really mean something to the couple.  It adds a very intimate element that just can’t be duplicated elsewhere.  It’s comfortable and special all at the same time.  When I first met with Bryan and Chelsey and heard that the wedding ceremony was going to be at Chelsey’s childhood home, I knew this was going to be something exciting.

Anyone else need a little visual pick me up?  The rain (and SNOW????) this week is for the birds.  Well, I actually doubt the birds are even enjoying it.

Have no fear … at some point the weather has to turn … allowing us to run around barefoot.

I always say that I want people to remember their time with me fondly.  Ten years down the road, I want people to laugh and say, “Remember when we had our engagement session and ________ happened?”   For Bryan and Chelsey, I think that question will go a little something like this … “Remember when Chelsey got a little carried away during the ‘friendly’ snowball fight at our engagement session and covered half of Bryan’s face in snow?”

Ha ha … oh how I love my job!!  Happy Friday everyone!

And to anyone looking for more pictures of Bryan and Chelsey, check out my KKP Facebook page here.

I feel like she must be saying, “Whatcha doin’?”

I had a blast with this family in October!  I was LOVING the outfits they pulled together … coordinated but not boring.

… and ignore the chill in the air, sometimes I can image that we’re not the middle of winter.  Instead I think about visiting the orchard with the family.


*sigh*  Anyone else?

Announcing KKP’s first ever “Back to School Mini-Sessions”!


I know in the Knudson house, the traditional school pictures are taken for the yearbook and school purposes only.    There’s just not enough personality in those images and I’ve heard from many of you that you feel the same.

Join Kristin on September 8 and document your child’s ever-changing personality.  A wide variety of school props will be provided but you’re encouraged to bring some fun things that will make your child’s image their own … your child’s favorite book, new backpack or their coolest new outfit.  (Mini-sessions are meant for children ages preschool – high school juniors.)

Contact me today to reserve your spot … 507.259.2062 or kristin@kristinknudson.com!  Location TBA.


Fine Print …

One child per time slot please.  No family pictures during this time.

Failure to show up on time for your reserved session will result in a shortened (or totally missed) time with Kristin and your children.  Please be on time!

Digital images will be delivered via direct download.

Please understand, I want to ensure that you have quality prints!  I will give you print house recommendations … both local and online … that will give you quality prints at extremely reasonable prices.

Rain date is September 15.

My clients ROCK … especially my high school seniors.  I know that.  You know that.

As a way to say “thank you” for all your awesomeness, I’m adding a little extra reward to my referral program for the month of August.  Now, not only will YOU earn a $25 credit towards your upcoming session for every friend you send my way, but your friends will also earn a $25 credit towards THEIR senior portraits!  Contact me today (using the contact form here OR at 507.259.2062) and we can start brainstorming ideas for a unique senior session that will reflect your own personality.

Fine Print … All referrals MUST make contact with me during the month of August but session dates do not need to take place in August.  Referral credits will be given after the new clients session date.
