Baby D | Newborn Portraits | Maple Grove, MN

I absolutely fell in love with this little guy’s hair color. He was not too sure about me at the beginning of the session, but then settled in and became a perfect little model. His big brother was too sweet also and thankfully very cooperative. It is a great honor to be trusted to capture these little babies when they are brand new. Thanks so much for choosing me.






Baby E | 6 months old & growing!


This little one was a trooper. It was so windy that day, several times it took her breath away. We were also dodging rain storms. As we ended the session it started raining and hailing really hard. I’m happy we … Continue reading

What’s a First 48 session?

I’m thrilled to announce I am offering ‘First 48′ sessions. First 48 refers to photographs within the first 48 hours of your newborn’s life.  I would come to the hospital/home and photograph the baby to document every tiny newborn detail.  This can be purchased alone or at a discount with the booking of a newborn session.  If you are interested, feel free to contact me for more information. In addition, I’m also considering offering birth photography. If you have a scheduled induction, please let me know as I will provide discounted rates while I portfolio build.

I was honored to have photographed this big sister when she was a newborn and two years later it is her little sister’s turn.  It was exciting to capture their first moments together.  Stay tuned for the newborn session photos.

Pricing details available here.


Baby E | 3 months old

This session some of the photos were lifestyle portraits.  I have always loved the natural look of lifestyle type portraits and luckily this family is game for whatever I want to try (Love them!).  My house is currently on the market (why it’s been so quiet around here) and as a result it has been decluttered, which makes for a perfect backdrop for these types of portraits.  If you are interested in some portraits using your house as the backdrop, contact me and we can set something up.  Believe me when I say you do not need the most fabulous house, it just takes a little decluttering in the area of the photo shoot.  I feel like these turn out to be a bit more intimate and personal, especially when it comes to family portraits.

I hope you enjoy and a special thanks to my client for trusting my vision for these photos!
