Minnesota Summer Family Session | Yantes Family

I have photographed the Yantes family more than any other couple/family in just a year. I had the opportunity to be in the OR room when they welcomed their little guy, a few weeks later for an in-home newborn session, again for a 9-month motherhood session and now for a one-year session. It has been such a joy getting to know them as a family of three and watching[...]

Two Year Old Session | Afton

Two Year Old Session | Afton

It is still hard to believe that almost two years have gone by since this little became apart of this family. I have been photographing their family since Afton was just 10 days old! I absolutely love the stage of life that Afton is in. She is so fun, curious, energetic and full of so much love. I love that when I would ask her a question her reply would always be[...]

Loveland Colorado Family Session | Rotz Family

Less than a week ago, we took a girls family trip to Loveland, Colorado to visit the newest addition to the family. My cousin Alicia and her husband Chris welcomed their daughter Scarlett (Letty) into their family in May. My other cousin Lindsay and her family live just a few miles away from Alicia and Chris so we got to spend a lot of time with both families! [...]

Minneapolis In-Home Newborn Session | Temples Family

Within minutes of walking into the Temples families home in Minneapolis, I was welcomed by their two sweet little girls giving me hugs, kisses and wanting me to hold them. It truly was the warmest welcoming into their home for their brother's newborn session. The Temples family just recently relocated from the south a few months before welcoming their son Theo [...]

Muellenberg Family

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[...]
