recent twin cities maternity, newborn & baby photography sessions


Here you'll find examples from my recent sessions and helpful blog posts in regards to newborn, baby and maternity photography sessions. I typically photograph between 80-100 sessions each year, so this is just a small sampling of my work throughout the year. Enjoy!

A mixed bag – Fall family photos

This past fall brought some of the most inconsistent temperatures I’ve seen in a long time.  Right after one of the warmest Septembers came to an end, one of the coldest starts to October started.  I had 2 family photo sessions scheduled for that first weekend in October and while the first one was cancelled due to the cold and windy weather, my second session went on as scheduled.  I had e-mailed mom about the weather that morning and she was pretty confident her kiddos would do ok, so away I went to go meet them.

We started off at a little spot on a bridge being mostly blocked by the wind and for the most part everyone did ok.  However, the little guy, who was only 8 months old, was not too happy about the situation.  As we posed and did out best to encourage smiles, they were becoming fewer and fewer while red, cold noses were becoming our norm.  It wasn’t ideal, but we pushed through and tried moving to another location where we thought playing in the leaves and maybe moving around a bit would warm everyone up and maybe even distract our attention from the cold for a while.

Everyone was pretty chilly by the time the session ended, including yours truly, and before I could send mom the final gallery, she was already anticipating the need to schedule another session on a warmer day.  I was more than happy to oblige.

Luckily at our second attempt at this little man’s 8-month photos and family photos, we had a warm and sunny day.  It was much more comfortable for everyone and no coats needed. 🙂
