Muellenberg Family

You might remember this little guy from when I did an in-home session with his mom back in the Springtime. Rochelle is an incredible fellow photographer friend along with her husband so I felt honored when they asked me if I would photograph their family. I loved spending time with this sweet family and seeing the ways they love on their little guy. I am looking f[...]

Budahn Family

Budahn Family

Last week, Drea celebrated her birthday! She planned for her family session to be on that day and I couldn't think of a better gift. I loved when she picked up one of her little ones and she proudly began singing happy birthday to her. It was the sweetest thing ever! I personally have known Drea for years! We both went to the same hometown school, I did an inte[...]

Afton | A Summer One Year Session

I would have to say that Afton has the best and most contagious smile. She was so happy and smiley the whole evening. I just adore this family so much! I first had the opportunity to meet them last year for Afton's newborn session and immediately fell in love with their sweet little family. Not sure how a whole year has passed already, but Afton is now one!! Be[...]

Montgomery Family | El Matador Beach, California

A few days before I was heading out to California, I got a message from Alyssa, saying her and her family live in the Los Angeles area and would love to have a family session. They recently welcomed their son Leo and hadn’t had family pictures since then. I have known Alyssa since my childhood since we both grew up in the same small town of New Prague, MN, went to [...]

In-Home Family Session : Letty Louise Turns One

I met Ashley when we attended the same college, and I was a TA in one of her classes. A few years later she introduced me to my now husband Ryan! Last year, we met for tea just a few days before her due date. She mentioned how she really wanted me to photograph the birth of their first child. At the time I had a wedding so I knew I couldn’t commit to being to the birt[...]

Whalen Family

Whalen Family

If you have been following along for a few years, I am sure you recognize the Whalen family! They have been one of my biggest supports over the years, and I really can’t thank them enough for everything they do for me personally and in business. It’s been a joy seeing them return each year for a session and be able to capture Erin for her story that she shared in the [...]

Powell Family

Powell Family

I have known Candi for a few years now after meeting at a local IF:Gathering. Over the years, I have heard so much about her husband and children, and finally got to meet them this Fall for a session. Candi is a photographer herself so I knew she was going to pick out some great outfits. How cute are her and her daughter matching? Thank you, Powell Family, for bein[...]

Hanson Family Session

Hanson Family Session

I had the privilege of meeting the Hanson family, this fall for a session. How adorable are they? I absolutely love when I get to photograph a new family and get to know them. Cecelia brought so much joy to the session and I couldn’t get enough of her and her spunky personality.

Megan & Ryan: Twin Maternity Session

I have known Megan since middle school. We played volleyball and basketball together. After high school, I didn’t see her much unless it was at a gathering of some mutual friends. I kept up with her on social media and loved to see her posts about her love for photography and graphic design. She was kind enough to refer my name to some of her friends that were getting[...]
