Miss Q – 3 weeks New | Twin Cities Newborn Photographer

Meet Miss Q! She was one of the oldest newborns I’ve ever photographed and I went into this styled session not knowing how she would do with the posing.  She totally surprised me though and was an absolute rockstar.  Even towards the end, when I thought she’d wake during an outfit change, she still stayed sleepy and content.  Enjoy a few of my favorite photos of this sweet and precious baby girl.

Mommy & Me Mini Sessions 2018


The bond between a mother and child is one of the most special in the world!  If you are anything like me, you are probably always the one behind the camera and rarely ever in front of it!  Now it’s YOUR turn to be in the photos with your children!  Just in time for Mother’s Day, my goal is to give you a gift that will keep on giving to you years down the road.  No matter where in life you are, or your children are, I’m sure it’s a perfect time to capture moments.

I am so excited for these sessions!  Last year’s event was a huge success and I cannot wait to do it all over again.   Happy Mother’s Day to you!  (A little early, I know… but shouldn’t it be “happy Mother’s Day” every day?)

Baby G – 10 Days New | Twin Cities Newborn Photography

I had the pleasure of meeting this handsome little fella when he was only 10 days new.  His parents simply adore him; but who wouldn’t with those preciously perfect features and super sweet snuggles.  Baby G was very sleepy during his session and we got some really great photos.  Enjoy a few of my favorites from this lovely newborn session.

Baby E – 4 Days New | Twin Cities Newborn Photographer

Meet Baby E!  4 days new and such a handsome little guy with perfect little features.  He may have decided to come a few weeks early but his family didn’t mind!  They enjoyed giving him sweet snuggles during his newborn session. Enjoy a few of my favorite photos of this rockstar baby!

Valentine’s Mini Sessions 2018

We sure had a blast celebrating the day of LOVE!!  Here are some of my favorites!

In-home Newborn Sessions | Twin Cities Newborn Photographer

DSC_4660.jpgWhat’s so great about in-home newborn photography sessions you ask?  As a mother of four, I can tell you that trying to get out of the house during those first few days is TOUGH! That’s why I make it easy for my clients and travel to you!  I want you to spend more time snuggling that precious little bundle rather than having to spend hours trying to pack up and drive somewhere.  With my in-home newborn photography sessions, you don’t need to do a thing other than make sure baby is nice and tired when I get there!  A feeding and good burping right before tends to do the trick.

Worried because your house is a mess?  Don’t be!  You just had a baby and some clutter is definitely expected.  Rest assured that right outside the frame of many of my beautiful photos is a pile of laundry that didn’t get put away, or some toys strewn about.  There is no need to tidy up as I don’t need much space and can shoot around any problem areas. All I need is some natural light, so by a large window or sliding glass door is perfect!
Do you have other children that you would like to be a part of the session?  No problem! Little ones tend to feel more comfortable in their familiar surroundings and will usually perform better for photos in their own home rather than an unfamiliar studio.  Whether it’s snuggling their little sibling on the bed or holding them next to mom and dad, I will make sure to get some precious first photos of your child and the new baby that you will treasure forever!  Interested in hearing more? Contact me today and I’ll send you my welcome guide!


Miss H’s Cake Smash

Another one of my sweet little newborns turned toddler!  I remember taking photos of this little cutie while she was still in mom’s belly!  It is so fun to see how she has grown over the last year.  Enjoy a few of my favorites from her cake smash session!

The winter months aren’t going to stop us from celebrating a first birthday with a fun cake smash session!  In fact, I just love doing indoor smashes!  Children are usually most comfortable in their own homes so I gladly bring my setup to them!  Enjoy a few of my favorites from Miss P’s session.  She was such a joy to work with! <3
