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[...]

Edington Family: Summer Family Session

Edington Family: Summer Family Session

I am pretty sure Mason is one of the happiest one year olds I have ever met. The minute he spotted me, he gave me the biggest smile. He is a very social little boy with quick little  legs and not one bit camera shy, thanks to his mom who takes a lot of photos. Mason’s brother Jace is such a great big brother. He was a constantly running after Mason, keeping him entert[...]

Brandt Family : Beach Session

Brandt Family : Beach Session

I first met Suzanne and her boys years ago when her littlest was just starting to walk! It is so crazy how time flies and how fast these two boys have grown up. We had plans of photographing their whole session on the beach but the twenty four mile per hour winds quickly changed our plans. After a few games of skipping rocks and walking in the water we moved our se[...]

Maciejowski: Minneapolis Family Session

I met Kathryn while photographing a wedding last year. She and two other ladies run a wedding and event planning business in Minneapolis called Paperwhite Weddings and Events. They have a strong love for eucalyptus, neutral tones, and greens just like myself so I knew we were going to get along just great. ;) We decided that we had no choice but to work together on a [...]

Elin's one year session: Minneapolis lifestyle session

I first had the honor of meeting the Theisen family last fall for a mini session. The girls were dressed in the cutest fall clothing and had the sweetest smiles and personalities. I was excited to get a email from them this winter asking if I could have a session for Elin’s one year photos. In Minnesota, we never know what spring will be like, so we opted for a ear[...]

Why moms deserve to be photographed with their children

Many of my friends and family members have children and I have been able to learn so much from them in this season of their lives. Talking to moms about motherhood is so amazing and informative. I hear so many comments about how motherhood has transformed them and shown them how to give more grace and how there is more to love than they knew was possible. Most of t[...]
