Minneapolis Family Photos with the Mosiers! One of the reasons I LOVE September and October so much is that I can get to see so many of the families that have been with me since I started my photography business journey! The Mosier family became my clients when I still worked in corporate, and it’s […]

I can’t even with how beautiful these girls are! They drove a long ways from South Dakota to have their baby session with me! Little Ayven did so well for her first professional photo shoot! Sessions like this give me serious baby fever, and holding Ayven was the best part of the session for me! […]

It’s FALL!!! I actually really like all seasons, and every time a new season starts, I’m like “yep! this is my favorite!” haha! In all honesty, I think Spring and Summer are my all time fave. I just can’t get enough of the Spring blossoms, and there’s something magical about Summer. BUT, Fall is definitely […]

This session was a gift from Grandma to her son and daughter-in-law! I’ve been working with this family for quite a few years now, as I get to photograph this sweet girl’s cousin every year, and felt so honored to now work with another member of the family! Grandma was definitely the secret sauce for […]

This momma nailed it with this beautiful, flowy dress. The sun kissing her and making her glow :-). The picture didn’t show it as well as I would have liked, but the dress was actually more “rainbow” like in person. I’m so thrilled for this family and can’t wait to meet the newest addition! This […]

If you’re looking for traditional, everybody wearing solid colors, wearing jeans, and looking at the camera, well, I would not be a good option as your photographer. When I’m working with a family, I love capturing the “dynamic” of that family. Photos like a son jumping on his dad’s back, even though said son is […]

He’s growing fast, but what isn’t changing is how incredibly sweet he is. He is kind, and thoughtful, and such a gentleman already. And he still hugs me… Cheers to more like him!

One of my favorite families on the blog today! Making it an even happier Friday! These girls put a smile on my face every time I see them! I’ve been working with them since the girls were 2 and 3 (I believe), and we’ve always had this tradition of doing this photo with the girls […]

If you follow me on Instagram you probably already know I have a healthy obsession interest in all things fashion. I love watching trends, and love shopping. I had the privilege of photographing a blogger I follow while she was visiting MN last month, and thought I’d share her 3 looks, showing 3 style trends […]
