Mother’s Day Mini Sessions 2019

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!  Formerly the “Mommy & Me Mini Sessions” the last few years have been a huge success and I cannot wait to do it all over again.  This year I am calling these minis “Mother’s Day Mini Sessions” and extending the invitations to mothers of all ages, not just to young children.

Abigail | Styled Newborn Session

I remember when I met this family a year ago; They were one of the many sweet clients that stuck out in my head.  Mom and big sister did a “Mommy & Me Mini Session” and we had such a wonderful time.  Fast forward to Christmas time and the family came back for minis again – this time with BIG news!  They were expecting!  I am so honored that I was able to do this sweet little girl’s newborn photos and to get to know the family a little better. It is one of the biggest joys of my profession; watching families grow and being a part of those memories.  Please enjoy a few of my favorite photos from Miss Abigail’s newborn session!

Mommy’s Wedding Dress Mini Sessions 2018

If you are anything like me, you probably still have your wedding dress in your closet. You will most likely never wear it again, but yet you don’t want to get rid of it due to it’s value (not only monetary but the memories it holds from your special day).

You may have said to yourself “maybe my daughter will want to wear it on her wedding day” but then you realize she will probably want to have her own dress, just like you did.

What if I told you, you could create NEW memories with that same, beautiful dress AND have your daughter wear it!?

Introducing, the first annual “Mommy’s Wedding Dress” Mini Sessions! I hope you are as excited for these as I am!

Valentine’s Mini Sessions 2018

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

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 W Brothers

When it’s 10 degrees in February – what better place to take some photos than at the Como Zoo Conservatory in St. Paul!  I had so much fun with the sweet and energetic brothers and I hope you enjoy a few of my favorite from their session!
