That’s a Wrap! {Minneapolis First Year Baby Photographer}

I got the best e-mail this morning from this little guy’s mama! They are expecting baby #2 in April and we’ll be starting up another baby plan package for them starting with maternity photos in the winter. So excited and happy for them!!

This is quite a big share from their little man’s one year photos we took a few weeks ago. He is such a little ham with so much personality! It will be so much fun to meet his new baby brother or sister in the Spring. I know one thing for sure; he or she will be equally as cute!

Enjoy!!

Pretty in Pink {Maple Grove In Home Newborn Photographer}

Happy Fall! It has been insanely busy with so many newborns lately and I’ve loved each and every session so much. I can’t wait to share the photos.

This blog post isn’t going to be too wordy, since my mind is spinning right now and I can’t really organize my thoughts. With a vacation with my hubby coming up, house projects, doctor appointments, school conferences and lots and lots of editing (and 3 more sessions this weekend before my week off), my thoughts are just kind of all over the place.

So, enjoy these photos from this beautiful little baby girl’s newborn session.

Top 75 Maternity Photography Blogs & Websites On The Web ~ I’m #60!

Ya know, I don’t go on Facebook a ton. Between shoots every weekend, weekday editing and all the daily business “stuff” that goes on behind-the-scenes, plus volunteering at my son’s school, dishes, laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, blah, blah, blah…who has time for Facebook?!?

So, when I hopped on yesterday (because if I don’t every once in a while I have no idea what’s going on with my family these days), and saw my Facebook business page had been tagged, of course it spiked my curiosity. My website and blog (or blogsite) has been ranked WORLDWIDE at #60 for one of the Top 75 Maternity Photography Blogs & Websites on the Web!!!! How cool is that?

I’ve known since starting my business in 2011 that SEO and blogging needed to play a large role in my marketing for my online business because I knew deep down that social media isn’t my thing. I’m a private person, I like small groups, and I don’t like being front and center. To me, keeping up on social media feels like pressure and I don’t do well under pressure. I love posting and sharing for my clients that love social media, but for those that don’t, I offer the opt-out in my Portrait Agreement, which I’m more than happy to oblige.

I guess all my website work (100% done by me) and SEO and Blogging has paid off! I will give a big shout out to Clickin’ Moms and the SEO course I took earlier this year by Beth Wade (another photographer who is an SEO expert and fantastic photographer) that I believe really gave my website the boost it needed.

Thanks, www.feedspot.com, for the honorary mention!! 🙂

Fresh 48 at the Mother Baby Center {Minneapolis Hospital Newborn Photographer}

I’m super excited to share with you these images from my very first Fresh 48 Hospital Newborn session. In my 6+ years of being a Professional Photographer, I’ve never been asked to do one of these sessions before and it was so much fun! As part of their First Year Baby Plan package, mom and dad decided to substitute their 6 month baby photos for the in hospital session shortly after their little man was born. We also did their maternity photos earlier this summer and will have their baby’s One Year Session next year.

These guys had their son at the Mother Baby Center in Minneapolis, which is right next to the Children’s Hospital, a place I know all too well. I was able to make it down the Monday after they had him, in fact they were packing up and getting ready to be discharged and go home when I got there, so we got these done just in time. Luckily, they didn’t have too long of a stay at the hospital (I was there for 5 days!).

It was so fun meeting him early because a few days later we did his styled and posed newborn photos at their home along with family photos with their pups. He was a newborn photographer’s dream! He slept so good for me and pretty much let me do whatever I needed to. Those photos will be blogged soon, too.

Enjoy!

First Birthday Photos in the Park {Baby Milestone Photographer Minneapolis}

I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve posted from a session! It has been a crazy busy year for me. My sessions have more than doubled from last year and I’m definitely feeling it! I just happen to have a day off today, which will be spent shopping for a new mattress and re-arranging the living room with my husband and son, but thought I could take a moment to get a blog post up.  Most likely you won’t find a whole lot of new shares on my Facebook page, since I’ve included a new opt-out option in my Portrait Agreement. I honestly don’t rely very heavily on social media sharing for my business anyway, so it’s not a big deal. My clients’ privacy is far more important.

This little man wrapped up his First Year Baby Plan with me a few months ago. His first year album will be getting put together very soon after mom and dad pick out the photos they want. Then it will be shipped off to them as soon as it’s completed. It’s so much fun going through all of the photos from the maternity shoot to the first birthday. I’m so excited to see which photos they picked out for the album!

Enjoy these favorites of mine from his One Year Photo shoot. No cake smash for these ones, but some fun balloons, a little splashing in the fountain and of course, the basketball. 🙂
