Meet Your Photographer

Hello and Welcome!

I'm Alicea, wife, mom, and Minneapolis, MN Newborn, Baby, Maternity, and Family Photographer. I specialize in capturing the precious first moments of your baby's life and creating beautiful memories you'll treasure forever.

For me, family photography is more than just a job - it's a passion. As a former daycare teacher, I adore working with babies and take great care to create a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable environment for both babies and parents.

I've been photographing newborns and babies for over 12 years, and I feel grateful to have captured so many precious memories for so many wonderful Twin Cities families.

I'm honored you're here and I'd love to work with you and your family, too!

Lamb Family; Zimmerman, MN

"These photos are absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much, I am so happy we were able to get in with you! Absolutely thrilled! You did an amazing shoot, everyone I show them to melts. Going to be difficult to choose a print, I could put them all up! Probably wouldn't have the wall space though!"

the Burning Questions

I know you have them

When should I reserve my newborn portrait session?

My availability fluctuates and I take a limited number of sessions each month, so I highly recommend reaching out to me in your 2nd trimester to reserve a spot on my calendar.


What is the best age to photograph a newborn?

Studio newborn sessions are best done in the first 2 weeks after delivery. Lifestyle newborn sessions can be done anytime in the first 2 months.

What if I deliver my baby early, or late?

No need to worry. The date reserved for your newborn portrait session is flexible. I shoot 7 days a week and can always adjust my schedule to make sure we get your session in within the first 2 weeks after delivery.

What is the best age to photograph an older baby?

Baby milestone sessions can occur at any age and time in their first year. I recommend having photographs taken at the most significant milestones, the "sitter" stage around 7 months, and their first birthday.

Do you take family portraits?

I do! But these sessions are reserved for clients returning to me after an initial newborn or baby portrait session.

When is the best time for pregnancy photos?

Maternity photo sessions take place between 28-34 weeks. Around that time you'll have a nice-sized baby belly, but shouldn't be too uncomfortable yet. Often times swelling kicks in in the last month of pregnancy, so it's best to have your photos taken before 36 weeks.

What should I wear to my photo shoot?

Pinterest is a great resource for what-to-wear guides! This is a personal choice and preference, however, this is what I recommend:


  • wear what's comfortable in solid colors and simple patterns
  • avoid matching outfits; instead, coordinate with 2-3 colors
  • avoid shirts with logos or writing on them
  • long dresses/pants look best
Can I bring props to my portrait session?

Yes, absolutely! I encourage the use of props if they're meaningful to you. Ultrasound photos, baby shoes, and books can personalize your maternity photos.

Knitted blankets and outfits given as gifts or passed down to your baby can add special meaning to newborn photos and baby photos.

Otherwise, in my posed newborn sessions, I provide all of the props based on my style in your choice of colors.

What if I need to cancel my portrait session?

As a mom, I understand that things come up; illness and unplanned events happen in life. No, worries. Your session can be rescheduled to another date and time that works for both of us.

What is a Print Credit?

The Print Credit you receive with your Digital Image Collection can be looked at as a gift certificate or coupon to be used in your online gallery store towards gift prints, wall art, albums, and more. Preserving your memories for years to come!
