Trusty Rustee

This sweet family had to say goodbye to their trusty furry friend Rustee this week.  This summer I was lucky enough to hang out with them and capture them in their lives just being themselves.  I am so glad we got to capture this time together.

Gigi, Marcella & Camilla

I had so much fun photographing this adorable crew at their home recently.  I believe these photographs will mean even more to them when they look back at them years later.  Anyone with little kids can tell you it is busy and messy, but also so full.  Full of joy, snuggles, laughter and so much […]

Dad’s Day

A dad with their kids is one of my very favorite things to document.  Thanks to all the great dads out there showing up for their kids in big and little ways.

Four + Ford = Five

It has been a few months now since baby Ford came into this world, but I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from one of his first days at home with his family.  I am not sure if they planned that number 5 on their wall to fit their new family count, but […]


Through the magic of time, I get to share with you Charlotte’s first six months of life all at once.  From the anticipation of a beautiful new mom-to-be, to those first sweet days, the first smiles and giggles, to the beginnings of independence and becoming her own little person.  It has been such a joy […]

Nora, Gus and Charlie

As soon as I met this crew, I knew it was going to be a good day.  It also may have had a tiny bit to do with my soft spot for read heads :)   They welcomed me into their lovely St.Paul home, and allowed me to document their life just as it is […]


I have been photographing beautiful Chloe and her sweet family for 9 years now (starting before she was even born) and I thought it would be fun to compare what she looked like at her first photo session and today.  She is the most delightful little person who loves to play and explore, catch bugs, […]

Big Ben

I am so glad that I don’t have to keep the secret any longer!   We wanted to surprise our kids with a new puppy (and not tell them until we actually picked him up), but I was so sure I was going to spill the beans before the big day.  We planned to go camping […]

Mamma Bear

Mother’s Day is such a fun holiday, but I can’t help but think about the fact that this can be a hard day for some women.  I want to send love to all of the women on this day, whether they are a mom, so badly want to be a mom but can’t for different reasons, maybe they have […]

Party of five

I have had the great pleasure of watching this cute family grow from two, until now their party of five.  Check out a couple of their past ‘Story Sessions’ here and here.  To me it feel like yesterday that Jack was the tiny bundle swaddled in a baby burrito.   I can’t believe how fast […]
