Emily maternity session: Minnesota Lifestyle Photographer

A few weeks ago I was able to spend some time with my dear friend Emily and her fourth baby boy on the way. Emily is one of those women who makes you leave smiling ear to ear and makes your heart full with all the encouragement she shares.

Streifel Family: Minneapolis Lifestyle Photographer

I absolutely love photographing families and capturing those great lifelong memories that they get to share with one another. Each family is unique and we all have a story worth remembering.
