Organic Bloom | MN Child and Family Photographer

I am super excited to announce a new product that I will now be offering to all MSP clients. I recently discovered an awesomely amazing company called The Organic Bloom. They create beautiful custom frames that will look stunning with your MSP prints. They come in a variety of styles and colors and you can get any size imaginable.

If you are interested in ordering these for the holidays, please contact me ASAP for pricing and shipping information. This product currently takes about 2 weeks from order to delivery so you need to act fast. And, check out their site for more product samples if you are interested in placing an order. For a very limited time, I will include the print of your choice with your custom frame order! So, if you order a 16x20 frame, you get a free 16x20 print from your session! That's an amazing value!

Sweet Ana | Minnesota Newborn Photographer

Last night my college girlfriends and I got together to celebrate the newest addition to our beautiful group. Little Ana here made her debut 2 months early but is doing amazingly well. She is such a sweet little lady and not to mention teeny tiny! I got to snap a few pictures of the gorgeous gal and while the lighting was horrible I managed to get some shots of her.

Mom, KJ, made this adorable little hat for her the night before!

Ana with her beautiful mama. KJ and I were freshman roommates and have been friends ever since!

Mark just returned home from Afghanistan a few weeks ago, so seeing this shot just melts my heart. He's such a great dad and has the magic touch with his little lady.

The amazingly beautiful family.

And one last one of Ana. So sweet!

Congrats again to you guys. I'm so very happy for the two of you, you couldn't have made a more beautiful baby girl!

ONE | Minneapolis Child Photographer

Jake turned 1 on Friday and I headed over on Saturday to shoot his one year pictures! I've been photographing this since he was just a little guy, it's so much fun to watch them grow and change. Isn't he darling?

Jake likes to do things most little boys like to do. He likes to read books.

He likes to play cars, or eat them, whatever :)

He loves hanging with mom and dad.

He got the biggest kick out of dad's hat! Isn't he adorable?

Happy Birthday Jake, you are one special little guy!


Good Neighbors | Lino Lakes Family Photographer

Today I hopped on over next door to have a quick mini-session with a beautiful family for their holiday photos. I always look forward to taking pictures of this little lady! She's spunky, she's got great style and not to mention all around adorable. Ellie was one of my first ever photography subjects too so it is super fun to watch her grow through pictures!

Ellie and her adorable tiara! I told you she has style!

The beautiful family and wonderful neighbors!

I just have to mention how awesome our backyards are. Just look at our beautiful pond, it's a natural backdrop! Oh, and yes we got 7 plus inches of snow yesterday, lucky us! And, I just love this shot too :)

I told you she was adorable too! And, I adore her headband!


Brody | Woodbury MN Baby Photographer

I was supposed to photograph this little guy last weekend but I came down with a bout of the stomach flu, which is a huge bummer since last weekend it was in the 60's and sunny and today we got our first nasty snow storm. But, I braved the elements and made it out to capture this little cutie!

It was so nice to meet you Brody, you sure were a happy little fella!


Winter | Minnesota Child Photographer

Winter is right around the corner, do you have plans for portraits for your family? My guess is probably not, but you should!

I'm gearing up for the big freeze, I've started collecting awesome backdrops from The Lemondrop Stop for use in the winter months. These things are seriously awesome.

I just love this one. It will offer some brightness to the dull winter months. It just makes me happy and screams SPUNK! Can you imagine your spunky little lady in front of this?

And this floordrop, doesn't it look just like an awesome distressed wood floor? Goes great with dirty boy toes and his cars!

I love this white wood door. It's amazing and your child will stand out in front of it!

And how dreamy is this one? So beautiful. I can picture a sleepy newborn in a basket in front of this one.
