This past Fall, when I got an email from Carissa, asking me if I would be willing to travel to Chicago for their engagement session, I don’t think I could say ‘yes’ fast enough. I love Chicago and couldn’t wait to explore the city with Carissa and Alec.

Carissa and Alec have known each other since the 10th grade and started dating in the 12th grade! After college, they moved to Chicago as a couple, started their careers, welcomed a pup Leo into their lives, and have made it a tradition to do steak night dinners out on Fridays!

We had the best time running around the city to capture their engagement session. I am so thankful the two of them are so flexible and were willing to move up their session a day because the next day was a complete rain day. I can’t wait for Carissa and Alec’s wedding this year in Minnesota!

I loved capturing these Edina fall family pictures! We met on a warm, fall morning just as the trees started to turn yellow. I always enjoy a morning session as little ones typically have lots of energy to share. Plus, they aren’t already exhausted from the day. Being able to photograph this family in the […]

I’m so excited to share these recent newborn pictures I captured with this incredible Edina family of five! I met this sweet momma at Barre3 in Edina a few years ago, before she had any littles! As her gamily has grown, it’s been so sweet to watch and fun to catch up before and after […]

I’m absolutely in love with these bright, white and relaxed Maple Grove in-home newborn pictures. What a joy being able to photograph these brand new parents as they welcomed their baby boy.
