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 […]

Minnesota Family Photographer Mini Sessions



On the most beautiful summer day, I had the honor of taking photos of the sweetest little newborn and her family near Stillwater, Minnesota.

There is nothing like adding a new addition to your family. Ali and Luke welcomed their sweet newborn baby, Margot, in June and officially became a family of four.

Before our session, I reached out to Ali asking what she envisioned for her family. For any session, I will always send you a Session Guide which goes through how to prepare for your photos and how to choose clothing items. I also offer my clients three curated outfit ideas designed for their family! This ensures that the outfits will fit my brand and style. It also takes out the added headache of trying to find dreamy outfits on your own.

After chatting back and forth, I sent Ali three options based on her preferences. From there, Ali went with the second option, choosing a dress from Worth Collective (find it here!) and an outfit from Zara Baby for their newborn. Luke already had a pair of khaki pants and a light blue shirt. Alice, their toddler daughter, had an eyelet blue dress that still fit her well. A few weeks later, the family arrived at our session and looked absolutely amazing! Their outfits truly came together and created cohesiveness without being too matchy-matchy.

Finally, their session had arrived! Alice was all smiles. She explored, played with flowers, and loved on her newborn sister. Ali and Luke took turns chasing her around as the other parent held tight onto Margot. They had only been a family of four for a couple of weeks but it was like they were always meant to be. It was magical to see and I felt honored to be apart of this milestone.
