portraits of A

If you’ve been wanting to do some portraits - for business, for fun, for you, for any reason - what’s been stopping you? How often a week do you want something and say to yourself “eh, it’s only $20 - I won’t miss $20”? In ten years, will you still have all those $20 impulse buys? Or what about the $5 you spend on coffee four times a week? In ten years you WILL have those pictures you decided to have taken. You’ll look back at them and say DAMN I looked GOOD. I had spunk. I had flair. I had fun. I’m glad I did that.

Let’s create some beauty together.

R family

Back again! Alex has been one of my best friends for…15 years? Holy wow. Seeing her as a mother of two is a pleasure, she is exactly in her element. That goes for her husband, Dan as well - they’re both amazing caretakers and givers, and they’re littles are lucky to have them. (Heck - she’s even listed as my ‘mother’ on facebook, and I don’t plan on changing that…ever)

one year portraits - baby R

I’m petitioning for this baby to hold a TED talk to all other babies - on how to act in front of a camera. She was the cutest, the smiliest, the flirtiest little gal, she made my job a breeze! And mom had some pretty great styling to put the cherry on top of an amazing one year session. :)

in-home newborn - baby L

Maybe there’s something in the water up here in Minnesota, but every baby I’ve photographed lately has been a 10/10. Gerber baby status. This lil guy posed, followed me around with his eyes the whole time, and stole the hearts of every person who saw baby’s first photoshoot.

The perfect kick-off to a summer of photographing beautiful babies!

maternity - lu & d

In this ever changing life it’s nice to have some constants. This lady has been a constant in mine for over 10 years now and I plan on keeping it that way. When someone brings light and energy into your life and daily routine, you hang onto that person for a lifetime. <3

in-home newborn - baby W

I’m lucky enough to have this lil cutie be a part of my family. My closest cousin growing up had her first baby this summer and boy is she loved, by humans and animals alike. ;)
