Sweet Baby “D” | Minneapolis St. Paul Newborn Photography











I loved every second of this sweet little guy’s session. I have come to know and love his parents and big brother over the past couple of years, so it really felt like I was visiting great friends for the afternoon. That should be the definition of an amazing job! I managed to get a few cuddles in between shots with this little man, and I was very reluctant to hand him back to his Mom and Dad 🙂 Cant wait to see the four of you again soon!

The “S” Family: Minneapolis St. Paul Photographer



It is families like hers that make me LOVE my job. I consider myself a pretty observant person, and right away I could tell just how much this mama loves her babies, and just how much her babies love her! It was really sweet to photograph them. They were incredible brave too. The day of our session was the coldest day of the year yet! And they smiled ( and shivered ) throughout the entire session! My husband has worked with this mama for the past couple of years, and I can’t tell you just how much she has blessed my family. Caleb’s favorite little lion- that he snuggles with every night was a sweet gift from her. She also made my girls the sweetest sweaters, that are so adorable. She is so talented! It is people like her that encourage me to be more generous of my own time and talent. Thank you “S” family. I admire you more than you know.

The “H” Family : Minneapolis St. Paul Family Photographer


Words can not describe how fun this family is! I’ve known them since college days, and we were reconnected last spring for a sweet little man photo shoot. I was so excited to see them again! It pleases me to no end how important they believe it is to document their son’s life. I agree and  I couldn’t be more please to take his photos twice a year. Children grow and change so much every year! Our session was all about chasing this cute little guy. But I didnt mind at all. He is a fun one to chase. And those eyes. My goodness! He played coy the entire session, but at the end he surprised me by sitting on my lap ( nearly knocking me over ) and giving me a tight squeeze. I even managed to steal a kiss or two 🙂 Already looking forward to our next date. 😉

Little Miss A : Minneapolis St. Paul Children’s Photography



I’ve been taking pictures of this little one since she was 18 months old. It has been such a delight to see her each year. She is absolutely beautiful! Last year she wasn’t interested one bit with having her photos taken, but this year despite her sweet shyness she looked straight into my lens. Making me almost die from her cuteness! I love images that show a child’s true personality.  My favorite photos are the ones of her on the swing! So pretty!

The “B” Family: Minneapolis St. Paul Photographer


Such a sweet beautiful family! Big Brother was so polite. I got out of my car and he greeted me with a handshake and a nice to meet you. I totally melted! Little sister was a sweet as could be! Don’t let these images fool you though, she did not sit still for one second! Must be because she is two! She had me running which was a good thing since it was a crisp cool fall morning. I loved meeting their Mom and Dad, I believe the kids get their charm from them! Thank you so much “B” Family! I loved getting to know you guys!



Baby C Turns One : Minneapolis St. Paul Photographer



This little boy is one of my newborn babies. He grew up SO fast ! Our last session was when he was 6 months old and he couldn’t even sit up without assistance- but this time he was running away from us! Busy little guy- he didnt stop for one second! I love his grins! He has such a sweet disposition. It was a delight to photograph him all year long and can not wait to see how big he gets next year!

The “P” Family : Minneapolis St. Paul Family Photographer




Another beautiful family! Seriously- those babes and their pretty eyes and darling smiles. So sweet! Baby boy was so happy to sit and smile. The Little Miss was as sweet and polite as could be.  While Mom and Dad just soaked the two of them in. I loved every second of it! Grandma was visiting from Nebraska and was a huge help! Thank you! Thanks again “P” family! I love meeting you guys!

The “I” Family: Minneapolis St. Paul Family Photography





Cute. Cute. Cute. From beginning to end. So cute! These parents have their hearts full of these adorable kids. I think they both are super parents! It was a lot of fun watching them interact with each other and to see the kids pair up with each other! Thank you “I” family for such a fun shoot…


and I almost forgot..THIS is my favorite image from the entire session!

The “L” Family: Minneapolis St. Paul Family Photographer




As my fall season nears to an end this year, the sessions are getting colder and colder, but all of my families are amazing and willing to stick it out with each other for some fabulous pictures. I have to say that this session won the prize for the coldest session this year yet, but they did great despite the wind and  chill in the air. Helps that they genuinely love each other and LOVE being together. I just love capturing families at their stage in life. It is busy, and crazy and fun!

The “U” Family : Minneapolis St. Paul Photographer

I LOVED this session and couldn’t wait to share this family with you. The session was full of smiles, hugs, and laughter. The boys were so cute and ready to pose! I love when brother’s are also close friends! They have a great example- Mom and Dad are very close too! 😉  We shot in Stillwater and the day was so warm and beautiful. We were delighted to find some fall colors still lingering. Thank you for such an enjoyable afternoon “U” family!
