Lovely Lily ~ Twin Cities Baby Photographer

Adorable Miss Lily came into the studio, and was by FAR the best newborn I’ve had in a LONG time- and by best,
I mean this little baby girl slept like a champ for her photo session, not so much as a peep out of her!
I think it’s the name, as I have a Lily in my house, and she sleeps like a superstar too… and by superstar,
I mean she likes to stay up late and sleep till noon.:) Sweet newborn baby Lily was just content as could be- I’d like to think it was my baby whisperer ways, but really some babies are just super zen at sessions, and she was one of those babies.
Not to mention she’s seriously the cutest thing, those CHEEKS! How can you not want to smooch them.
I’m sure her parents have laid about 1000000000 on her already.

I think this next one is my favorite…she just looks so cozy and content

Along with being an amazing sleeper, she was also the SMILIEST baby!

And last but not least, her adoring parents. I think it’s safe to say they are smitten.
They’ve waited a long time for her to arrive, and she was worth every minute…

Thank you A&E for choosing me to document your precious little bundle of love’s first year of life. I can’t wait to watch her grow! ~Amy

Ella Enchanted ~ Minnetonka Newborn Photographer

Sweet little Ella came into the studio for some newborn portraits, and was SUCH a little sweetie! I’ve had a run of babies with lots of hair, and having had super bald babies myself, I have to admit I just adore when newborns have a full head of hair! I always wonder if the hair will stay, especially the same color. I know I have nieces who were born with tons of dark hair, only to late become blondes! You just never know! One of my favorite parts of newborn photo sessions, is being able to chat with mom while the session is taking place. The luxury of having a studio, is that the parents can kick back and relax, and let me do all the work while they look on, and ooooh and ahhhh over how adorable their baby is, and of course what an awesome baby whisperer I am;)

Ella was gorgeous in purple, I love when clients pick out bold accent colors for their images, to off set the soft neutral baby feel.

I’ve always had a soft spot for baby feet, and baby toes…there’s just something about that tiny baby part that’s so adorable to me…

Darby is One! ~ MN Family Photographer

I cannot tell you how EXCITED I am that outdoor photography season is finally here!!
After our insane winter/spring, it feels SO great to be back at what I love- which is of course outdoor portrait sessions.
This family session was one of those magical May evenings, where the weather is warm and glow-y,
and it’s early in the season so not to hot, and no bugs to swat away.
Darby is one of my watch-me-grow kiddos, and it’s been SO fun to watch him go from being a cute little
chubby newborn, fresh to the world, to now, a RUNNING like a mad 1yr old. Seriously this kid has SPEED!!
Most 1yr olds are sort of barely toddling around if they are walking around yet, but not Darby.
This little man has some serious gross motor skills! Running, climbing, and general super-busyness.
He’s definitely going to keep his parents on their toes, as he loves to explore!

One of my favorite party tricks- “how big are you?? SO big!” All kids should learn this…:)

He has the most amazing blue eyes…

I love his little slight sneer- reminds me of Billy Idol (now I’m aging myself…)

Thanks M family for allowing me to document your little man’s first year!! It’s been SO much fun! ~Amy

Fun on the Farm ~ Wayzata MN Family Photographer

Words can’t really do justice to how amazing this session was…
the location was really, as a photographer, a dream come true.
I think my heart leapt out of my chest at least a dozen times at every little new nook and cranny of awesomeness they showed me.
The most surprising part, this family farm lies right in heart of the west metro. Only a few blocks from the C towers!
How did I not know this ever existed? An amazing little hidden oasis is what it was…
I say was, because the purpose of this family session, was to document them on their beautiful land, one last time.
As the time had come for them to sell it and move onto a new future, and new land to explore. Exciting times.
After 50 years of their family living on this BEAUTIFUL land, it is definitely filled with many many stories, and even more memories.
As we wandered around their acres, they shared a few (some VERY funny) stories of growing up there
and I can tell it’s a little bittersweet for them all. And after spending just one evening there, I don’t blame them.
It’s pretty amazing.

Thank you L family- for a really wonderful evening, and letting me be a witness to a part of your family story….

Newborn Princess P ~ MN Baby Photographer

I’ve had quite the string of babies in the studio with full heads of hair! LOVE it!
This little one definitely prefers to be held..but as I always say, “babies are for holding!”
Once she gave in to my baby whispering ways, she was a DREAM to photograph…
She just has the sweetest little face, doesn’t she?
I think her smile is going to wrap her parents right around her little finger….

Newborn Baby Claire ~ Minnetonka Photographer

Introducing newborn baby Claire!
Isn’t she just GORGEOUS! I love when babies have a full head of hair, it just adds to their cuteness factor.
Miss Claire was joined by her sure to be doting companion, Madison.
Madison is a gorgeous girl herself, and I’m sure will be an amazing friend and companion for Claire over the years.
A few images from our awesome newborn session together!

First up- one of my favorites, and the one they chose for their birth announcement.

Winter Family Fun – Bloomington MN Photographer

Living in Minnesota, we have some amazing seasons. I LOVE when clients schedule sessions in the winter, because
it enables us to have sessions that combine the awesomeness of both indoor and outdoor images.
While we did the majority of their photo session indoors, since it was March and not completely freezing anymore,
we did pop outside at the end for some fun snowy photos, and included the two furry family members as well.

While I do love having a studio, my first love was always lifestyle in-home sessions. It doesn’t matter if your home is big or small,
there’s nothing more personal, more authentic to you, than a session in the spaces that you gather in daily.
It gives a unique snapshot of your life, as it really is…just you, loving each other, in your space.

I am incredibly partial at times, to black & white photos from lifestyle in-home sessions. While I love color,
black+white photos allow you to really focus on the feeling and emotion of the image.
These make my heart happy….:)

The 2nd black and white image captures such emotion. It’s images like this that made me choose you to document my daughter about a year and a half ago. You continue to capture such wonderful moments. You really do have a gift!
