I photographed the Richmond family on a stunning spring day. We met at Arneson Acres in Edina and it was so lovely! The kids were so adorable and had so much love for both each other and their parents. I had a blast getting to capture their family at this sweet stage!

The Richmond Family

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Betty & David | Pregnancy Announcement

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 […]

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 […]

Blackburn Family

Lisa contacted me this summer asking about an extended family shoot for her in-law’s 50th anniversary. I love these types of sessions for so many reasons, one being that there are so many different relationship dynamics to capture, and so many different stories to tell. We started our time together with some 50th anniversary couples […]

Applequist Family

I photographed the Clary family in November on a collllddddd fall day. By the end of the shoot we all had cold faces and cold hands, but they were all troopers through the whole thing! Idk what it is, but something about colder days in this city is so magical to me. Kat emailed me […]

Clary Family

Zoe Grace, the girl who made me an aunt for the first time ever, was born this past January (I’m a little late to posting these…). I might be a bit biased, but she is one of the most adorable little baby girls I have ever laid my eyes on! I was lucky enough to […]

Baby Zoe

I met sweet baby Matias and his wonderful parents a few months back, and I figured it was time to share some of my favorites from this newborn session. I always feel incredibly honored whenever anyone invites me into a moment of their lives so that I can capture it, but when it comes to […]
