{Minneapolis/St Paul Maternity Photographer}

Another stunning mommy to be! I have had such a great year so far photographing baby bumps and brand new babies! I feel incredibly blessed and honored that so many of you have chosen me to capture these precious moments that go by in the blink of an eye. I had so much fun with Christine, we laughed and laughed and I bet she thought I was going to keep her in the studio all night long :). She doesn't know if she's having a boy or a girl! I always wished I was patient enough to be surprised like that. Enjoy!

Another B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L family! I'm sure you recognize these guys if you frequent my blog! I have been photographing them since Ella was three months old and she will be two this fall! Where has the time gone? I have to admit, this was her most challenging session yet, and that makes these images that much more rewarding :). Enjoy!

I have been blessed with some amazing families to photograph! They have been patient (this session was rescheduled twice because of rain!), they come dressed perfectly (aren't their outfits adorable?!), and they radiate love for their child(ren) (you really can't help but smile when looking at these portraits)! I am posting a very big sneak peek from this session. This was from last night and it was HOT outside to say the least! I was not the one in charge of this session, three year old Miss A was :). She had me cracking up! But Miss A like most three year olds was busy with a capital B!! She had me running after her the entire time. The session only lasted about 30 minutes, which is pretty short! And I think mom and dad are worried we didn't get many good shots. So, this is to show all of you who leave a session wondering if we got anything good, don't worry!!! All of the crazy stories, farting noises, games I play, it's all so we can get images like these even when they seem impossible :). Here is a big sneak peek to ease mom and dad's minds and to thank them for being so patient while we had to reschedule this session not once but twice, enjoy!

I had such a fun time with this family! There was rain in the forecast and we felt rain drops off an on throughout the entire session. Once I pulled out of the driveway and down there road it started to rain! We got lucky and ended just in time :). I love when I leave a session feeling like I've captured the true personalities and essence of my subjects, and this was definitely one of those sessions! Here is a very small sneak peek:

I have been so busy I haven't updated for a while! I do have plenty of sessions to share once I get a bit more free time so stay tuned! Here are a few of my little Miss Ryleigh. She helped me test out a location and let's just say eye contact isn't her strongest quality right now ;). I hope you all have an amazing Father's Day tomorrow! My children and I have a lot of special things planned for my wonderful husband and I'm just hoping they can keep it all a secret for one more day!

I had the honor of spending all day with little miss Emersyn!  She was supposed to have a session while I was ill, so she ended up being 16 days old for her photo shoot!  She was also over a week overdue so I've been waiting a long time to photograph this beautiful baby!  She was such a trooper, and definitely made her fair share of laundry for me, mom and dad :).   Here's a sneak peek from her session:
(I couldn't decide between color or black and white for this one!)

Look at this adorable little smile :)

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend surrounded by family and friends! I was bedridden with a nasty case of strep throat most of the weekend. It was heartbreaking not to be able to go out of town to see family and to have my own children running around squealing with laughter and hearing them out the window rather than joining in on the fun. I'm feeling much better now and working very hard to get caught up on everything! A special thank you to all of you who were supposed to have sessions and rescheduled so I could rest and recuperate! Here is a belated sneak peek of a cute family I had the honor of photographing recently! We spent the entire session holding our breath that it wouldn't rain and we got lucky!

I also wanted to let everyone know that there are some changes coming this summer.  Session fees and print prices are changing.  So are digital options and baby programs!  Everyone who has a session already scheduled and a session fee paid and those who are in the baby programs are locked in at the current pricing.  If anyone has any questions about the changes please feel free to email me {}.

Thank you!
