Family Lifestyle Photography - Mpls, MN

Family, maternity, newborn, grow with me, and cake smash photography sessions have each been delightful.  When you get to know a family well and watch them grow, each family session becomes more fun than the last.  And, it's hard to believe how much these children have grown.

From last minute location changes, to sick children reschedules, to coffee orders, photographing families over time allow us to get to know each other.  I know how to connect with the children, and the parents know what to expect in a session, allowing us all to relax and enjoy the photo session.  

We've done local park shoots (hello, gorgeous Monticello!), in-home lifestyle photo sessions (I'm telling you, it's the way to do a newborn session), and walked around the neighborhood for unique locations.  Each photo session is unique, yet cohesive.

I cannot wait to put together a post displaying maternity, newborn, three, six, nine-month, and one year sessions. How much changes in the maternity/newborn to one-year stage never ceases to amaze me.

I didn't expect to adore newborn photography.  I didn't expect to be a newborn photographer.  I am so glad, however, that I am. Getting to photograph families starting in those precious moments and photographing them as they grow through the years is such a privilege.

For this session, they opted for an in-home lifestyle and documentary session. The cake smash portion will come later - promise. Without further delay, I present the One Year Photo Session!
