Summer Maternity Session | Minneapolis Motherhood Photographer

Gretta reached out this summer asking for some photos that would capture her family’s joy, and I made it my mission to do just that! And we had the perfect beach location […]

James Family | Minneapolis Family Photographer

I photographed the Sextons last year soon after their little girl was born (you can see photos from that session here), so getting to come back and photograph them about 9 or 10 months later and see how both kids had grown and changed was really really special. One of my absolute favorite things about […]

Sexton Family | Minneapolis Family Photographer

It was so special to photograph my cousins family this spring at Arneson Acres in Edina! It was a gorgeous evening filled with really beautiful light and some slightly crisp air…perfect running around weather. 🙂 The kids got to explore and move around and it resulted in some really beautiful + interactive images! I loved […]

Bergfalk Family | Minneapolis Family Photographer

I had the chance to take some photos of my sister and brother in-law’s family this past May on a sunny but chilly morning in Grand Marais, and it was so great! I photographed them a few years back as a family of three (before we were officially family). It was so special to be […]

Burger Family | Minneapolis Family Photographer

I’ve been photographing the Saravias since before they were “The Saravias!” It’s been such an honor to walk with them through all of their life’s milestones, from engagement to being first time home owners, to starting a family. It was so fun to meet their sweet baby girl at their spring session last month. She […]

Saravia Family | Minneapolis Family Photographer

I photographed this extended family session last summer for Warner and Margaret’s 50th wedding anniversary. They were soon moving homes, so we did the photos outside of the house to document not only the two of them and their family that has grown over the years, but also to document the home in which it […]

Warner & Margaret | 50th Anniversary

Jomarie and RJ were wed on a beautifully sunny September day at Barrington’s White House, surrounded by their closest friends and family. It was such a sweet day filled with so much love, joy and dancing! The day started with the two of them reading letters they wrote for each other, to one another in […]

RJ & Jomarie | Married

I received an inquiry from Betty last summer saying she and her husband David found out that they were pregnant, and they wanted to set up a session with their families to surprise them with the news. So we did exactly that! We met at the Bahai Temple in Wilmette, IL on a beautifully sunny […]
