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[...]

Mothers Day Mini Sessions

A family photo session can be the most precious gift. Documenting your family in this moment in time is such a sweet and timeless keepsake. Life gets so busy it's one of those things that can just fall off the radar. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, this is an opportunity to give the perfect gift to the mom in your life. Now Booking Mother's Day Min[...]

Coey Twins: Lifestyle Session

I met Laura last spring at a photographers' workshop and heard that she was having twins! I was thrilled for her and her growing family. Unfortunately, our paths didn’t cross for the rest of her pregnancy. I was so surprised to see her at my friend's calligraphy class. It was fun to hear about her transition to a mother to twins and balancing her work as an amazing ph[...]

Sefton Family: Minneapolis Lifestyle Session

It is such a joy to document a growing family. I loved photographing this family of three (soon to be a family of four in April!). Ainsley is one of the liveliest and loveable little girls around. Despite a cold, she still shared some of her dance moves with me. She is going to be so good at entertaining her little brother and will be a devoted big sister. It will be [...]
