Sweet little Charlotte was the last newborn session I did before all the craziness of Covid-19 and the words “social distancing” and “shelter-in-place” really began. I miss these moments of photographing first time parents as they can’t get enough of their little bundle of sweetness, and snuggle them tight. Charlotte was the most content and […]

Each year, I get to photograph new and growing families, and it is the best thing ever. Sweet little Hazel is about to become a big sister, and I was so happy to capture some of the last moments Renee and Brian have with her before baby number two joins the party. If the new […]

I never tire of newborn sessions-can you tell?? Moments like these-especially in times like these, when we take a few minutes to pause, reflect, and soak in the time we have together as families are something to be cherished. The gift of new life is especially precious during this time, and I will never take […]

Safe to say the biggest cure for winter doldrums is taking photos of fresh babies-especially when that baby belongs to one of your close friends. Briggs has stolen all of our hearts, and has officially set the bar high for definition of cute baby. Spending the morning with Chels and Jon, and seeing them look […]

It is impossible to put into words what this last year meant to me…photographing over 90 families, I can’t even believe it. What a gift to be able to photograph so many sweet families, sweet moments, and answers to prayer. Thank you all so much for allowing me in your homes, meeting me at parks, […]

I don’t think I will ever tire of newborn sessions, and my time spent with Amy, Michael and their sweet Quinn is no exception to that rule. I think she slept the entire time, and although we passed her back and forth, up and down and all around, she loved being snuggled in her parents […]

This was such a special session with Sara, Dave and their two boys Henry and Silas. These two have created such a strong, love-filled home and are instilling deep faith into these little boys. Silas is an incredible answer to prayer, and a testament to God’s hand in our lives life. This is why I […]

You’ve heard me say it before, I’m sure, but there really is something so special photographing these significant moments in your friends lives. I’ve known Brady since college, and watched him fall in love with Andrea…then got to take their engagement and wedding photos, and now the exciting addition of their sweet baby girl Baylor. […]

It’s hard to put into words how meaningful this newborn session was. Jess and I became friends back in Bible study, and from there I had the immense honor of traveling to Guatemala to capture her and Tim’s wedding…one of the most beautiful experiences and weddings I’ve had the honor to photograph (you can relive […]

My new favorite kind of maternity session is in your own home. When Emily first reached out about photos, we talked about what location we would want to go to in the middle of winter and eventually, we landed on her and Dustin’s own home. I loved her mindset and how she expressed she just […]

This winter has been quite a doozy for us Minnesotans…surviving the polar vortex was no easy feat, but getting to take Amalia’s newborn photos in the midst of it helped me get through!! So teeny and tiny, so sweet, and so loved by her parents-I absolutely loved this session. Happy to share this new family […]

What I love most about newborn sessions is the simplicity. In all honesty…when I first started newborn sessions a few years ago, they used to scare me…and now, they are ones I look forward to the most. There’s something so sweet about capturing the first few days when the babe is so little that I […]
