One of the biggest joys in my photography business is having repeat clients. I had the pleasure of capturing Katie and Nick’s wedding a few years ago and got to see them again for their Edina Maternity Photography session. It was so great to catch up with these two and hear about what has been going on in their lives since we last saw each other.

Before their session, Katie and I chatted about her vision and color schemes for outfits. After a bit of back and forth, they decided to go with a classic mix of blues, whites, and beige. Check out my blog post about about why colors choices are so important for your family photos! Katie looked absolutely stunning in a white wrap dress and minimalist jewelry. Nick wore a soft blue button up shirt with light khaki pants. He finished off his look with a leather watch and light tan shoes. Here is a similar dress!

It wasn’t long after our Edina Maternity Photography session that Katie gave birth to a beautiful baby. I’m so happy for their little family and look forward to their new journey!

The 2023 Motherhood Mini Sessions were extra special this year! Being a first time mom myself, I felt a strong pull to celebrate motherhood in every way. Let’s be real, being a parent is hard and being a mother brings on it’s own challenges. It can feel draining, overwhelming, daunting, lonely, and stressful, but it can also feel empowering, fulfilling, joyful, and humbling. All mother’s deserve to be in photographs with their children.

Even though this time of year is dreary outside, I was lucky enough to host mini sessions at the breathtaking Brooke Elisabeth Studio in Ramsey, Minnesota. Brooke’s attention to detail in this space was beyond my expectations and I’m so grateful there is a studio like this that exists! As a special treat for my mamas, I asked Hannah at Minne Floral Co to design a few flower arrangements and she totally delivered. I wanted a floral arrangement that was delicate yet intricate, just like motherhood. Hannah chose neutrals and soft pinks along with a few featured greenery pieces.

Check out a few of my favorites below and sign up for this year’s Motherhood Mini Sessions Here. There will be another floral install, a new hand-painted backdrop, and then option of borrowing dresses from my client closet! Interested in booking a full session? Contact Annie here!
