Are you looking for a Posed Newborn photographer near Dayton, MN? I would love to work with you and your family on creating beautiful newborn portraits.

My newborn portrait studio is not far from Dayton. My studio is only 10 or 15 minutes away just a little bit east of downtown Maple Grove on the other side of Hwy 169 in Brooklyn Park just off Boone Ave.

I recently moved into this space. I live in Maple Grove and wanted to be closer to home, but I couldn’t find a space right in the city. Unfortunately, rent is much higher in Maple Grove, especially if you want a private space for photography.

I ended up finding a quiet business park just near Maple Grove in Brooklyn Park! It’s such a great location and easy to access from Hwy 694 and Hwy 169. I’m right on the border of Maple Grove and Plymouth.

I have a lot of clients that come from Dayton, Maple Grove, Osseo, Champlin, and Plymouth. Being so close makes for an easy drive to the studio for my families that live in the area. Especially helpful during the cold winter months when the roads in Minnesota can be tricky to navigate.

My newborn photography studio is right off Boone Ave in a business park snuggled between the Marriott Hotel and North Hennepin Technical College. I’m a landmark person myself, so if you tell me to turn by the gas station near the McDonalds instead of the exact road it’s much more helpful. 🙂

One thing I love about being in this business park is I’m usually the only one there on weekends. It comes in handy when you sometimes have a crying baby in the studio. I try to schedule my newborn sessions on the weekend for this reason, but if my schedule is booked, I use weekdays as my backup days.

And on that note, here is a share from a recent newborn and family portrait session. This lovely family is from the Maple Grove area, so it was just a quick trip to the studio for picture day!

We got so much great variety with mom, dad, big sister, and big brother. I loved documenting this time for this new family of five. They picked perfect outfits for their family photos. Neutrals are always the way to go to keep your images timeless. Having the big sister wear pink was the perfect pop of color, too.

Sticking to the soft neutrals for their baby girl’s photos, we stuck to pink, cream, and lavender for her posed newborn photos. She was nice and sleepy for the first half of her photos but woke up at the end where we got some great eye contact and facial expressions.

Babies typically are awake at some point during the newborn session and I always take advantage of this. Since newborns aren’t awake for long in those first few weeks after birth, grabbing those images of them awake is always a joy.

So, if you’re looking for a Newborn Photographer near Dayton, MN, please contact me. I’d love to work with you!
