I’ve been busy photographing many babies in 2015! The latest is baby Owen, a sweet little guy whose sister, Addison, I’ve been photographing for the last few years. I’m excited that Owen’s mom and dad decided to sign up for a baby package, which means I’ll get to photograph this adorable face two more times this year!
Sweet, new baby boy Evan visited me in my studio and he is absolute perfection. Big brother Aiden was excited to show off his new brother, but a little nervous to get too close. We were extra careful in capturing images of the two boys together, making sure Aiden was very comfortable with what was happening. I am so happy with the results! And I just can’t stop gazing and Evan’s perfect little face…
My past client and friend Jen had her mom and sister visiting and they decided to have a girls’ day at the studio with makeovers and a portrait session – what a fun day! I love capturing relationships between women and I know that these images will be treasured. The portraits of Karen, the mother, are my favorite. Her beautiful, kind eyes just sparkle!

Danielle’s senior photo session was so much fun! We started at the studio and Danielle got to experience an amazing makeover by the talented Emily Bettenga. After taking a few photos at the studio, we moved on to Como Park to take advantage of the gorgeous fall colors!

I’ve know Jill for a long time – ever since she first hired me as a babysitter for her small kids when I was in high school! Since then, her kids have grown up, some have graduated, moved away, gone to college, gotten engaged. It was so fun capturing this fun family all together. The girls even got to have a little pampering at the studio before meeting the boys at Saint Paul’s Union Depot. Since today is Jill’s birthday, I’ll start with this stunning portrait…
Laura is an immensely talented hair stylist who co-owns the Apiary Salon, an absolutely magical place. Actually everything that surrounds Laura seems to be a bit magical. I am inspired by her aesthetic and how she makes mindful choices for herself and for her family. She makes each of her clients feel so special and beautiful, and this time it was her turn to get pampered at my studio. I LOVED photographing this strong, smart, determined woman and her two beautiful daughters. S. & H. are so lucky to have Laura as their mom!

Laura is a local actress and came to me to update her headshots. In her initial email inquiry, she wrote, “your portraits stood out above all of the photographers I looked at.” What a compliment! Especially since Laura also is a professional photographer with her own business. Laura mentioned that she is often cast as a child. She does have a very youthful look, but I think these images also show her as a confident, poised, beautiful woman. Look for her in “The Christmas Carol” at the Guthrie!

Linnea chose to be photographed near St. Anthony Main on a beautiful summer evening. No wonder this is such a popular place for photography session. This area is so gorgeous! She is a competitive figure skater, so she brought along her ice skates which caused a few people to give us some strange looks. Oh well!
