This session with the Fox family last summer was *so* sweet for me to capture. It’s a true testament to how much fun you can have in a session when you let go of your expectations and let whatever happens, happen. When I work with any family, my goal is to let the kids do […]

In-home newborn sessions are cozy in and of itself, but winter newborn sessions when it’s snowing outside? SO cozy. When you live in snowy Minnesota, you gotta capitalize! We did just that, and spent the first half cozy inside, reading and hanging out, and ended the session getting all bundled and going outside to play […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

What a whirlwind of a year 2021 was. I almost feel like it was just one big giant blur….anyone else agree?! In 2021 I started working towards taking my business a step further from the side hustle that it was, and I am so glad I did. It pushed me out of my comfort zone, […]

Best of 2021

Did a newborn shoot this past summer to document baby Elowynn’s entrance into the world! Let me just say this, if I had any doubt in the magic of outdoor newborn sessions before, this session absolutely scrapped all that and has caused me to become a true believer in them. SO much sweetness in the […]

Baby Elowynn

I’ve been photographing these three since their maternity days, and every year since. I cannot express how much fun it has been to document their family throughout the years. From maternity to the newborn stages to the toddler years, and now onto the little girl years. They moved to a new home recently, and this […]

Velez-Luce Family

I’ve known Edgar and Jocelyn since they were dating. I photographed Edgar’s big surprise proposal a few years back, and I recently had the chance to photograph them in their first ever home together with their sweet pup, Toby! Can every session have a dog in it?? It was so special and fun to join […]

I photographed the Blackburn family on a hot summer day in downtown Chicago. I actually met Danni on Instagram— She and her family had moved to Chicago from England for the year and I loved following along with all her stateside adventures! Needless to say, I was beyond excited to capture their sweet family. The […]
