I mean I really don't need to say a ton about this little guy, the images pretty much say it all. Carter was amazing during his newborn portrait session! We did lots of football poses since mom and dad are fans of different teams. Go Vikings! #teammom :)

The sitting/standing age is probably my favorite age to photograph - 6-10 month! Babies are super bubbly, smiley, and happy. At Annabelle's milestone portrait session on the St. Croix River in downtown Hudson, she was so full of life and joy. These are just a few of my favorite images of this adorable baby girl. I've been capturing her since birth and her family since I first opened my studio! I'm so blessed to have families come back to me for photography year after year. Makes my heart so full. 

I still have openings for my Summer Mini Sessions this coming Sunday, June 24th at Rotary Park in White Bear Lake, on July 8th at Casey Lake Park in North St. Paul, and a few afternoon spots are left on July 22nd in Hudson WI. These sessions are 20-30 minutes long and include all of the retouched digital files with print release. Just $150!! Super good deal. Email if you are interested at or visit the Contact page to send a message here. 

Hope you are enjoying your summer and cherishing those little ones. Time flies, get out and make some memories!!

Oh my gosh this baby was a dream to photograph! Annika was just 9 days old when I took her newborn photos at my North St. Paul studio. Even awake for most of the session, she gave me some beautiful shots! Here's her little sneak peek...


PS I just received a ton of new headbands from Sweet Missy Boutique and I want to use them so bad. Soooo good news...

Ummmm isn't this the cutest baby boy ever?! I love my job as it is, but this lil guy instantly brightened my day. I've captured his family's milestone sessions for a couple years now and I just love them all. Can't wait for his one year session!
