Being a nanny means you get to have your fair share of soccer mom moments. There’s the get everyone buckled in so we can make the gymnastics session moment, followed by the shoving donut holes in their mouths for supper moment, and lastly the putting their hair in pony tails as owe rush out the door moment. All of the Mom’s and nannies out there know this scenario is all too familiar, though we all wouldn’t trade it for a minute!

Every time my little love bugs go to gymnastics at our local gym Mini Hops, they go into their sessions with excitement and energy, and eager to learn something new.  I love how the team encourages my girls to continue to persevere and never give up as you try your best each and every time.

A couple of weeks ago this amazing team of dedicated coaches and volunteers helped launch the Grand opening of its new location in Plymouth, MN! As I was there capturing all the little details, I couldn’t help but notice that same energy and excitement overfill the entire place. Even as little ones were crying from exhaustion from the jam packed fun they had, there was still a wonderful feeling of joy, love, and acceptance.

As a photographer, I not only feel blessed but honored to have been a part of such a great team and amazing once in a lifetime day. Thank you, Mini Hops, for this fantastic opportunity!
