Sam — Newborn Session

Sam was amazing to photograph… he slept so well and let me move him around wherever I needed him to be, and when he woke up he was so content. Congrats you guys! He’s so lovely!

All of the photo’s are so special! I have to say that I love the little feet! What a perfect little boy Sam is. The pictures make me want to give that little guy a snuggle.

Sam — 9 Months Old

Sam was such a smiley baby, and so fun to photograph. His big blue eyes are just incredible!

I love the color in these photos. They are so vibrant!

Emily and Mike — Engagement Session

We photographed Emily and Mike in Minneapolis around the Stone Arch Bridge and Mill City Museum area. We also spent some time inside the Guthrie Theater. It was a cold day (although much warmer than the days proceeding the session!). Still, not too bad for Minnesota in January.

Emily and Mike, we are really looking forward to photographing your wedding… can’t wait!

Jon and Amanda — Wedding

Jon and Amanda’s wedding was great fun to photograph. Their ceremony was held at Living Christ Lutheran Church in Chanhassen, MN and their reception at the Embassy Suites in Bloomington, MN. We loved how relaxed these guys were throughout the whole day. They’re a fantastic couple and we were honored to be their photographers.

Photo Day for Haiti — February 13th, 2010

Haiti has been on my mind lately. I watch news coverage in the middle of the night while I feed little Jude. It hurts my heart to see people in such need.

The other night after a particularly long feeding, and after watching some of the coverage, I laid Jude back into his crib, crawled into bed and said a prayer for the people of Haiti. And then it struck me. Here I was, snuggling into my nice warm bed, my husband beside me. Our new baby was safe in a crib just an arm’s reach away. Our 2 and 4 year old were sleeping peacefully in the room next to us. I had just chugged a huge glass of clean, fresh water.

I started to think about how lucky I am. How small the worries in my life really are, compared to the worries that the Haitian people are facing. They are facing such heavy worries right this very minute. Not knowing where to go. Where to sleep. Where they will get their next meal. Where their families are. They estimate that there are now around 1 million orphans in Haiti. Wow.

We want to do something.

And that’s where you come in.

On February 13th, 2010 we will be holding photo sessions all day to raise money for the people of Haiti. If you would like your family, child, selves photographed at a great location (The Guthrie in Minneapolis) for a great cause (the people who have been affected by the earthquake in Haiti), give us a call!

We will be booking 45 minute mini-sessions throughout the day, beginning at 9:00 a.m. Sessions begin at the top of each hour.

All proceeds from the session fees and print sales will go directly to World Vision International (

One more thing… time slots are already filling up very quickly… thanks SO much! If the 13th fills up, we would LOVE to spend our Valentine’s Day (the 14th)  photographing as well! What better way to spend that day together?
