  1. Evie | Apple Valley Newborn Lifestyle Photography

    I’ve alluded to this before, but newborns were not a part of my original business plan way back in 2009. In fact, for probably the first 2-3 years of my business, I turned potential business and families away because it was SO NOT a part of the plan and I was SO NOT INTO documenting a family’s transition into parenthood. (I’m the worst. It’s ok. You can think that too.) Well, as it usually goes, the joke is 100% on … Read More

    Lovely Elle. Even though these words were written more than 40 years before your birth, they maybe, just maybe, were written with a darling such as you in mind. Isn’t she lovely Isn’t she wonderful Isn’t she precious Less than one minute old I never thought through love we’d be Making one as lovely as she.You are so very loved, little one.

  3. Bonnett Family | Wayzata Lifestyle Photography

    I am fully convinced baby thighs will ruin me. (But, for real though.) Sweet Bonnett Family. I adored that early spring morning we got to spend together dodging goose poop and convincing a 6-month old and a puppy that they did actually want to snuggle. Seriously, it was the best and I would do it again in a heartbeat. (Seriously.) xo

  4. Lizz & Matt | Lancaster Maternity Lifestyle Photography

    “And the Child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him.” Luke 2:40Sweet nephew of mine. You already have my heart, my prayers and a portion of my credit card limit reserved only for you. Just a few more weeks until we can finally meet and I can start telling you only the very best stories about your mom & dad (and probably some good embarrassing ones too, because what else are aunts for?). Love you … Read More

  5. Balck Family | Minneapolis Lifestyle Photography

    Little known fact. When I first started this business almost eight years ago, I was dead-set against photographing families. If I’m being honest, I thought I wouldn’t enjoy it. Between the pressure of getting that one photograph where everyone is smiling at the camera, the lack of control over the temperament or behavior of little ones who just want to be on the move and the high-intensity desire for perfection in making sure shirts were tucked in and hair was … Read More

  6. Flannigan-Faleel Family | Maple Grove Lifestyle Photography

    Over the years I’ve had the chance to get this sweet family in front of my camera more than just a couple times and I can tell you one thing for certain. Kids grow so gosh darn fast. I mean, YES OBVIOUSLY. But to see it play out in Bodhi’s sweet cheeks from little baby to an almost-five-year old, I almost can’t handle it because those little baby cheeks at St. Anthony Main seem like yesterday. I guess maybe that is a … Read More

    “Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.” ― Shel Silverstein

  8. Hunter | Edina Newborn Lifestyle

    I don’t know about you guys, but I’m feeling all of the music feels lately. Between Adele’s single drop this morning and songs like M83’s Wait or Ryan Adams’ cover of Wonderwall, these musicians just get where I’m at in life right now. But that’s the wonderful/magical/crazy thing about music, right? It’s ability to both transport you to a past memory but also, it’s ability to bring feelings to the surface. Happy feelings, sad feelings, introspective feelings. Just…feelings. I’ve always … Read More

  9. Charley | Blaine Lifestyle Photography

    The secretest of all my secret shame? Little man Charley is nearly 2 years old which means these images ARE MORE THAN A YEAR OLD. Uff da, guys. If time passes insanely fast as a parent, the speed the earth circles the sun quadruples when you’re a photographer*. But you know what? I don’t even care because these images still bring me so much joy. Promise I’ll blog his 1-year photos by the time he’s five. Cross my heart. *Not a scientific fact.
