Cambridge MN family photographer | Cherise Gow | {Pelican Lake Sessions}

Filed under: Children, Children and Family, Families — cherisegow @ 8:10 pm

Last weekend I traveled to Pelican Lakes for a little getaway with my girlfriend and for a few family sessions!!!  I managed to squeeze 3 sessions into Friday and Saturday.  The sessions were all for {friends of friends} that all have lake cabins on Pelican Lake.  The weather was perfect most of the weekend and made for great lighting!!!  I have combined a small sneak peek for all 3 families, I will email you all as soon as your galleries are ready for viewing and images are complete for mailing.  Thanks so much for all your patience 🙂

Edina MN Family photographer | Cherise Gow | {Lane family}

Filed under: Children and Family, Families — cherisegow @ 1:53 am

I love having repeat sessions with clients I have photographed in the past, you get to watch their family grow!  I shot Michelle and Tim’s wedding two years ago and this time they were back for a family session.  Little “C” has grown so much since I last seen her and what a smart little girl!!!  Sounds like the family will soon be growing with another addition, how exciting 🙂  Our session was at Centennial Lakes in Edina, it was perfect lighting for pics but OMG, so hot after 20 minutes!  Thank you so much Lane family for braving the heat and be such troopers, especially little “C”!!!   Hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

St Paul MN professional photographer | Cherise Gow | {1st brigade 34th infantry depoloyement}

Filed under: Families — cherisegow @ 3:24 am

Today I had to say farewell to my oldest son as he deploys with the Red Bulls 34th Infantry division to Kuwait for a year long mission.  It was definately one of the hardest things in my life to watch, seeing your son pull away headed into a 3rd world country.  This has been a struggle for me but I know that with all the prayers from friends and family he will be safe.  I am very proud to call him my son and it is a very honorable thing that he is doing for our country.  I also want to thank all the other soldiers for their sacrifice for our country as well.  Without all of them we may not be safe!!!  Please take the time to remember all the military personel that have given their lives so that we may have the freedoms we so enjoy here!!!  I will miss you every day son until your return 😦  Godspeed
