Minneapolis Maternity, Newborn & Baby Photography

these moments won’t last forever

Are you expecting a little one or hoping to capture beautiful memories of your babies while they’re still small? A maternity, newborn, or baby milestone session is the perfect way to capture the love and joy of your family.

Investing in a family photography session with your little one is an investment in your family’s memories. It’s a way to preserve these fleeting moments and create something beautiful that you can hang on your walls, share with loved ones, and treasure for years to come.

So why not treat yourself and your family to a photography session today?

Minneapolis Newborn Photography

capture the first days before they’re gone

Posed Newborn Photography is best done when your baby is between 5-14 days old. This is when newborn babies are their sleepiest and most flexible for posing.

Lifestyle newborn photoshoots take place anytime within your baby’s first 4 weeks after delivery.

My schedule books several weeks or months in advance, so it’s best to contact me in the 2nd trimester of your pregnancy. My availability fluctuates, so feel free to contact 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. Click below to learn more!

Minneapolis Baby Photography

capture your baby’s milestones before it’s too late

Your Baby Milestone Photography session can be done at any age or stage in your baby’s first year.

Most parents prefer to capture their baby when their baby starts sitting independently around 6-8 months old, and then again at their baby’s first birthday. The One Year 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 to the end of the one-year photo shoot, so babies can get as messy as they want.

Baby milestone portrait sessions can take place in my studio, outdoors, or even in your own home. Click below to learn more!

Minneapolis Maternity Photography

capture this fleeting time before baby’s arrival

Maternity Photography sessions are best done around 32 weeks into your pregnancy 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! You’ll love taking maternity photos outdoors at sunset, however, my studio is always available for a more private session.

At my studio, we can go outside for some additional images as there are tall grasses and wildflowers nearby. My availability fluctuates, so feel free to contact me and I can let you know what dates I have open. Click below to find out more!

Newborn Photo Session Testimonial

"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!"

Creating Simple, Elegant, and Modern Portraits for Twin Cities, MN Families

a simple and easy process for busy parents

The first step is to reach out and contact me to schedule your maternity, newborn, or baby portrait session. A session fee deposit and signed portrait agreement lock you in. Everything is done online with the ease of your tablet or computer.

On the day of your session, you'll be excited to work with a photographer who has loads of experience and patience working with newborns and babies and will provide you with stunning and heartfelt images you’ll be proud to display around your home.

Within 2 weeks after your session, you'll get to choose your favorite images from your online gallery by purchasing your digital image collection, gift prints for the grandparents, wall art for your home, and a session album for your coffee table. All from the comfort of your own home.

print your memories

There's something truly special about having beautiful pieces of family photos as artwork displayed in your home. Digital files have a limited lifespan, while your artwork can be enjoyed for generations.

I offer gorgeous high-end products and artwork ranging from desk prints, fine art wall prints, museum-quality canvases, and fine art albums that will showcase your baby and family just as you are today.

Did you know…A Tulane University study found that children who see photos of themselves have higher self-esteem than children who aren't exposed to family portraits. Having your family photos hanging up in your home can help your children grow into more confident adults.
