The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum had some beautiful areas for these maternity photos. After a long season of waiting, Mike and Danielle are welcoming their first little one this summer. I couldn’t be more thrilled for them during this incredibly exciting time.

Our evening together was filled with warm sunshine, sharing in their joy of meeting their little one soon and planning for their upcoming newborn session. So much to look forward to in the weeks and months ahead.

We had been hopeful the crabapple trees would have been in bloom, but with the cooler Spring, the timing didn’t align. I was grateful that this happy couple went with the flow as we enjoyed the gardens and captured their maternity photos. I loved that little specks of springtime green made it into the frame.

Be sure to check back in a few weeks to see pictures from their studio newborn session. Until then, enjoy some highlights from the maternity photos I captured at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.

I first met this family of three a few days before Christmas in 2020 for their daughter’s in-home newborn session. What a treat to photograph them this Spring for family pictures and to see their daughter’s fun and active personality. […]

These Motherhood pictures from my Motherhood studio event were SO special to capture. I met this sweet momma years ago when we were neighbors for a bit. After a move and losing connection for a few years, we reconnected and I got to photograph her and her daughter for a dreamy beach session. I loved […]

While most of my newborn sessions take place in the home, many of my clients have opted for outdoor newborn photos this summer. I personally am loving the change. We have had some really wonderful weather for it. Furthermore who would want to pass up all the green and florals that Minnesota has to offer […]

So excited to be sharing these classic in-home newborn photos that I captured recently. Altogether it was such a joy being able to photograph these brand new parents and their baby boy.
