Portraits

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 […]

It was such a joy getting to photograph these brand new parents for their son’s in-home newborn session. We first connected in the early Spring for a mini maternity session at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. I was excited to come to their Apple Valley home to get these photos of this new family of three. […]

Spring pictures at the Minnesota Arboretum were a dream come true with this sweet duo. May is always so beautiful at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chaska. And it is especially breathtaking if you are able to go when the crabapple trees and lilac bushes are blooming. It’s a treat for the eyes but let’s […]

I got to meet the Knutson family in Edina, MN at the beautiful Arneson Acre park. Arneson Acre park is one of my favorite locations to photograph at and even during each season we get in Minnesota. I especially love it during the Spring time because the park has a few trees that offer the […]

“A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dates all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.” -Agatha Christie It has been a joy to watch my friends raise their children these past couple of years. Many of them […]

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 […]

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 […]

Family sessions are so special. Yes, it takes a lot of work at times to prepare for a session especially if there are little ones involved! But these times are fleeting and I feel such delight at documenting those moments. This past year, I was able to capture so many growing families at different times […]

I’m so excited to be sharing Eric and Katie’s Engagement Session on the blog today! These two will be getting married next Oct. at Canon River Winery. They wanted to change up the feel of their engagement session from their wedding so we choose a downtown Minneapolis location. Eric and Katie met while working at […]

We have been lucky to have such a beautiful fall here in Minneapolis this year. There are still some yellow, red, and orange leaves hanging on. I am not complaining about the sixty degree temps we have been having in the beginning of November either. The Lunieski family and I had a fun fall evening […]
