Meet Your Minneapolis Family Photographer

I never had maternity photos or newborn portraits and it’s one of my biggest regrets.

At 2 weeks old, my newborn baby boy was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. He was also born with clubfoot and had colic in the first few weeks after his birth.

I quit my full-time corporate job to become a stay-at-home mom to care for a baby with special needs. This left me feeling pretty isolated from the outside world. As a new mom, I also suffered from postpartum depression while recovering from an unexpected C-section.

Adjusting to being at home full-time and caring for my son was not easy. My husband encouraged me to pick up a new hobby. I’d always loved photography, so when my son was around 4 months old, I bought my first DSLR (aka fancy camera). I documented his milestones, growth, and daily routine to tell his journey through the photos I took each day.

I soon found myself loving being behind the camera and taking photos of my son, my nieces, and my great-niece. I was so inspired by the photos I took of them, that my passion extended to giving other mothers an experience I didn’t get to have.

Now, my son is a healthy & thriving teenager and I’m into my 13th year of being a Minneapolis Family Photographer. I love meeting new families, snuggling their babies, and providing them with beautiful memories of their early moments in their parenthood journey.

On the days I’m not hanging out with pregnant mamas and babies, you can find me listening to music while I edit photos, reading books on my Kindle while sipping on a cup of mint-mocha-flavored coffee, watching Marvel movies with my son, or playing board games with my husband while sipping on a dirty vodka martini.

But enough about me! It’s your story I can’t wait to tell!

We’re a good fit if…

and I think we are!
