Family photos at Noerenberg Memorial Gardens in Orono, Minnesota provided the perfect backdrop for this joint newborn and family session.

With the unpredictable weather, outdoor newborn sessions aren’t always […]

“What is the best age to get newborn portraits taken?” This is one of the main questions I get from clients. Typically, I suggest scheduling your newborn portraits when the baby is between 7-14 days old. While there are factors like baby arriving earlier than expected or mom needing extra time for healing, this is […]
