Hey, Mama!


I'm so glad you're here! And I mean that. I'm so, so happy because it means that you're pregnant, or recently had a baby, congratulations!!


Having a baby is life-changing, joyful, scary, exciting and exhausting, but all so worth it! Family means everything to me and I know you wouldn't be here if it wasn't everything to you, too.


Your story (and I can't wait to hear yours) is worth celebrating with beautiful images of your pregnancy, baby and family. You'll walk past the photos on your walls and sit down and look through your photo album with nothing but the fondest memories. Because that's what photos do; they capture memories.


I can't wait to be your photographer and start capturing these memories for you today.

Minneapolis Newborn Photographer


As a Minneapolis Newborn Photographer, I prefer to photograph newborns between the ages of 5-14 days. This is when newborn babies are their sleepiest and most flexible for posing. My schedule books several weeks or months in advance, so it's best to contact me in your 2nd trimester of your pregnancy. My availability fluctuates, so feel free to reach out to me and I can let you know what dates I have open following your due date. If you've already delivered your baby, please contact me ASAP as I may have a last minute opening. I will work with older newborns up to 4 weeks if that is the case.


You can decide if a newborn photography session package or First Year Baby Plan is best for you. I offer simple all-inclusive session pricing, which includes the retouched high-resolution digital images from your session with rights to print when you want and where you want. All newborn photography sessions take place in my private studio where we'll have access to all of my newborn photo props. The studio is easily accessible from any where in the Twin Cities metro area; Plymouth, Maple Grove, Edina, St. Louis Park, Brooklyn Park, Blaine, Coon Rapids, Roseville, Woodbury and Minneapolis.


Minneapolis Baby Photographer


I love being a Minneapolis Baby Photographer! Babies are great at any stage, but my favorites are the 6 months to 8 months "sitter stage" and baby's first birthday. The Cake Smash session is a fun way to capture this big milestone in your baby's life. The Cake Smash portion of the session is added on to the end of the one year photo shoot, so baby can get as messy as they want.


To document your baby's growth during their first year I offer a single Baby Milestone Session or First Year Baby Plan. Minneapolis baby photography sessions are all-inclusive. For one price you'll receive my time and talent during the photo shoot as well as the edited digital images. Baby milestone sessions take place at my photography studio or on location at a beautiful park in Plymouth, Maple Grove or Roseville. It's fun to get outdoors for your baby's portraits and family photos, too!


Minneapolis Maternity Photographer


It's best to book your Minneapolis Maternity Photography session in your 2nd trimester of your pregnancy. We'll schedule your session date between 30-36 weeks when you have a nice round belly, but haven’t become too uncomfortable. I want you to look and feel your best for your pregnancy photos! I love taking maternity photos outdoors at sunset, however my studio is always available for a more private session. My availability fluctuates, so feel free to reach out to me and I can let you know what dates I have open.


I'm more than happy to photograph just your Maternity Session , but when you book a Newborn Session and Maternity Session together, you'll receive a discount. Maternity Photography Sessions are also included in the Deluxe First Year Baby Plan. First Year Baby Plans are a great way to document your pregnancy, the newborn phase and your baby's milestones until their first birthday at a discounted rate.
