Meeting Mr. B | St. Paul, MN Newborn Photographer

I just couldn’t resist getting a few of these images processed.  I can’t tell you how excited I was when I heard that I was going to get to photograph this gorgeous little guy.  This was my first newborn session other than my own girl back in March and I was SO nervous.  Mr. B was just perfect though.  He let me move and pose him and I’m so pleased with some of the shots we got.

It just reminded me how quickly this time goes when they are all tiny and squishy like this.  Truly the time to be cherished.

A & T, thank you SO much for letting me come into your home and photograph your new addition.  He’s absolutely perfect and his big brother is such a cutie too.  And thanks to my BFF from high school, Auntie M, for hooking me up with them!!  I hope you guys like your sneak peek!

Stunning Senior | St. Paul, MN Senior Portrait Photographer

Last weekend I met up with gorgeous A downtown St. Paul for her 2010 Senior Portraits.  It was hard to get a bad shot of her she was so flawless!  We ventured around the city a bit and got some fun shots.  I just love shooting seniors.  They are so laid back and I don’t have to chase them around, LOL!

A, I hope you enjoy your sneak peek.  I can’t wait for you to see the rest of your gallery!

40 years worth celebrating! | St. Paul, MN Family Photographer

I had the opportunity to meet this great family of a co-worker of mine.  Her parents were celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary and wanted to commemorate this milestone with some family portraits.  We met up at one of my new favorite locations and braved the 90+ degree heat.   Fortunately, it was a very easy session to do as everyone was so enjoyable and easy to work with.  A & J also had the most adorable little daughters too!

H family, I had such a great time meeting you all and getting to know the rest of your family.  W & S, I hope you guys had a wonderful anniversary celebration and thank you for allowing me to help you capture it!

I hope you guys enjoy your sneak peek!


Now offering 50% off all session fees!

Wow, I can’t believe the amazing response that we had to the portfolio building promotion in July!  Thank you to all that have booked with me and have been sending referrals my way.  Your support means the world to me in helping my photography business get off the ground.  There aren’t words to express how thankful I am to each of you!

If you missed your chance at the complimentary session, fear not!  I am now offering discounted sessions at 50% off their regular rate.  This is still a great opportunity to have your familiy or children’s portraits taken in time for getting together those holiday cards (I know it’s only August, but we all know how quickly that will go by!) or for getting those senior portraits taken at the beginning of the school year.

But, be sure to book quickly as there are only a few weekend spots remaining in September and October.  I’m happy to also book into early November for outdoor sessions with the understanding that the weather may not cooperate, but we’ll make the most of it.  🙂  To see the dates that are still available please visit our website at and click on the Calendar link.

This discount will be good on any sessoins that are booked by December 31, 2009.

Hope you have all been having a wonderful summer!  I can’t believe school will be starting back up in just a few weeks. The time is flying by WAY too quickly!

And Baby will make 4! | Minneapolis, MN Family Photographer

This past weekend I had the opportunity to photograph one of my good friends from college and her adorable family.  These 3 boys are so funny and cute and you can tell how much they love each other from the moment you meet them.  They are expecting a little sister in a few more weeks and she’s going to be one loved and very spoiled little girl!

We got some fun and energetic shots of them throughout our session.


Then mom and I took some maternity pics of her in the gorgeous golden sunlight while Dad chased the boys around.


And this one is a new all time favorite of mine.


H family, I had so much fun hanging out with you guys!  I’m so excited to see photos of your little sister when she arrives.  Give her lots of kisses from me!

I hope you guys enjoy your sneak peek!
