Family pictures with a six month old can be a bit unpredictable. The mood of a older baby can be tricky, especially when it comes to a stranger. But from the minute this little guy got out of the car he was smiling and ready to go! This little boy may be the happiest, most […]

I was so excited to be back in my hometown of New Prague to capture the family pictures of this wonderful foursome. I have had the joy of photographing both of their boys’ newborn sessions.  We met on a humid summer evening at Cedar Lake Farms for their family pictures, so they can dressed in […]

I was excited to take these maternity pictures for these soon-to-be-parents as they get ready to welcome their first baby. I got to meet them when they were just 6 weeks shy of welcoming their little one into the world. Such an incredibly happy time.  We had a beautiful Minnesota summer evening at one of […]

These family pictures with twins was so enjoyable! This family of four recently moved to Minnesota from the west coast. I loved the energy they brought to their session, that happened to be just down the road from their new Edina home. I haven’t had the opportunity to do family pictures with twins very often, […]

Late summer family pictures with this sweet toddler was so special to capture. Mom mentioned that this was their first time ever having family pictures. She shared it had been on her to do list for a while and she was so happy she finally booked a session. What an honor to be able to […]

We had the most perfect summer evening at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum for these family pictures. This family of five was just brimming with joy and love throughout our time together. I knew Mallory growing up in grade school, so meeting her whole family for the first time during a perfect summer evening was a […]

I met Kelly, earlier this year, at one of our couples wedding. She was the day of coordinator at this beautiful backyard wedding. I remember admiring her beautiful wedding ring and talking about her proposal. As I wished we could talk some more we were trying to both navigate one of our first weddings back […]

Ann & Alex are engaged and I couldn’t be more excited to be photographing their wedding in Chicago next year. They really are the cutest and nicest couple! I am so thankful we were able to sneak in their engagement session while they visited their families in Minneapolis this summer. Their session took place across […]

Raquel and Nick asked if we could start their session at their home in St.Paul. I was beyond thrilled when they invited me into the backyard because it so beautiful, relaxing and charming. It was the perfect backdrop for a warm summer evening. The two of them recently adopted their pup Rosie so of course […]

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 […]

From the emails and Facetime meeting I was able to have with Katie and Tom I was incredibly excited to finally meet them in person. We met in Wayzata on Lake Minnetonka as this is where they got engaged! It was so cold, extremely windy and misting during their entire session. The two of them […]

I met Matt and Josie in downtown Stillwater on a beautiful Spring day for their engagement session. They just arrived home from a four-month adventure all over Asia and were already heading back on the road for an east coast road trip the day after their session. Needless to say, these two are so much […]

Stephie and I grew up two doors down from one another. The memories I have of us making up gymnastic routines in her basement, playing neighboorhood night games, attending pre-k-12th grade together, having her phone number on speed-dial and trying to keep her nano pet alive are endless. It is safe to say she was […]

Liz and Kyle met a few years ago when Liz recently moved to Minneapolis and was asked by her roommate if she would like to hang out with some friends for the evening. She happily accepted the invite since she didn’t know anyone at the time of her move. That evening Liz and Kyle met […]

Laura and Brian’s Minnesota engagement session this past fall felt much more like summer. We met up at St. Anthony Main in Minneapolis as this is one of their favorite areas and where they reside. I loved exploring, sharing stories, and favorite restaurants in the area. These two are getting married this coming August, and […]

Ashely and Nick spent their college years at Gustavus College, but it wasn’t until a while later that their paths crossed after college. Their love of travel and adventure have taken them to many different states and countries and it was while they were traveling in Italy, that Nick, proposed to Ashley in Tuscany!!! Ashley […]
