Big Kids ~ Minneapolis Kid Photographer

I love seeing client’s children grow over the years. While I started specializing in the “wee ones”
now that I’ve been at this awhile, the wee ones are getting older and bigger!
This year I’ve had quite a few repeat clients who’s kids are hitting that tween stage, and it’s a fun age
to photograph, as you can really see them toeing that line between kid, and teen.

Oddles and Doodles of Puppy Love ~ Wayzata Family Pet Photographer

Oooooo how I love puppies!!
As most of my client’s know, I LOVE dogs. Like, seriously, LOVE them.
So when families are up for including the family pooch in a few images, so am I!

Meet Crosby- possibly the world’s cutest Golden Doodle.
I kinda wanted to steal him, he’s just so soft and sweet and fun!

While the focus of this session was actually an extended family session for my friend Betsy,
I thought it’d be fun to have the blog post be all about the dog.
Since he kept me company while I scouted out their new home’s yard
for the best photo spots, he and I totally bonded. So he gets his own post.  :)

I promise late to blog about the people too:)

Sweet Little Y ~ Minneapolis Baby Photographer


I was SO excited to finally get to meet this sweetheart when I was in Chicago last month.
I’ve been photographing her brothers and sister over the years, and have been hearing
about her since she first arrived last year! Last fall when I was in town I wasn’t able to see her,
so was so happy to finally get to make her acquaintance last month!
She and her family have had a long road in the short year she’s been here,
and seeing her finally at home, surrounded by so much love and attention…
it makes my heart so happy. She really is so lucky to be born into the family, and community that adore her!

I am completely smitten with these two b+w images. I just can’t stop looking at them.
She has the most smoochable cheeks, and those eyelashes!!

Boy Number Four ~ Minneapolis Newborn Photographer

This gorgeous family added another boy to their family!
It’s been two years since I last saw them (seen here) when they welcomed baby boy #3
It was fun to do a similar series for their wall at home, of them holding their sweet little man!

And as I’ve mentioned to a few clients, I DID find a way to bring that awesome old brick wall
from my old studio downtown, to my current studio in Minnetonka so I could still use the same wall in images.
You’ll have to come in to see the secret magical way!;)

Family Love ~ Edina MN Family Photographer

Summer is often the time that families travel to visit one another, and get the chance to reconnect.
Cousins get to play, adult siblings get to see each other and their parents…
and it’s also a great opportunity to get together for a portrait session!

This family was so much fun, the kids were full of spunk and personality,
and it was a blast watching them all truly enjoy each other’s company.

First peek up- the whole gorgeous group!

Thank you for an amazing evening! I told you it might look chaotic, but it’s all good.
The fun part is the magic that appears in between the chaos:)
