Lifestyle Newborn Photography in Minneapolis

I met Nichole over seven years ago. We were both pregnant and met though a local birth group. She was expecting Samuel, her third boy, and I was expecting Elliott. Over the course of our pregnancy I was able to get to know Nichole and her family and looked up to her parenting style. She was such an inspiration to me. After we had our babies, I would text Nichole in the middle of the night whenever Elliott had a high temperature, or I didn’t know how to handle being a new mom, and then later when I had a million and one questions about homeschooling. She would give me suggestions but mostly, she was there for me when I needed someone. She is one of the best mothers I have ever known. Nichole and Russ have three boys of their own and have have an adopted daughter. I have had the honor to be able to capture their family though so many of their special moments. But they just knew their family was not complete and God blessed them with a beautiful girl. Lucy. She looks just like each of her brothers depending on what angle you happen to catch her. She’s very alert and loves all the attention she gets from those big brothers of hers. She is definitely the princess and nobody better mess with her or they will have all three big brothers to contend with. Welcome, Lucy Faith Deborah.. you are so loved, so wanted, so protected, and such an amazing gift. Love you, Branjords. Thank you for letting me capture all these amazing memories in your lives. It’s been an incredible honor.

Thank you so much Michelle! I absolutely love these! I’m pretty much in tears, both from your kind words and your beautiful images. And also maybe a little because Lucy already is so much bigger…pause button please? Thank you again, I will treasure these.

Beautifully written beautifully captured!

Engagement Session at Boom Island in Minneapolis

I met up with Angie and Mark one brisk, fall evening at Boom Island in Minneapolis to capture their engagement pictures. The cold wasn’t a concern. It just meant they could snuggle in more and I got to get some pretty gorgeous images! Their interaction is so charming. It’s clear they are head-over-heels for each other as you can see in the pictures. They were so awesome that I didn’t even care that I returned to a parking ticket on my windshield. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding at Aster Cafe. It’s going to be spectacular. Oh… and GO WILDCATS!

Murphy’s Landing Wedding in Shakopee

Erin and Josh were married on a beautiful fall day at Murphy’s Landing in Shakopee, Minnesota. The weather was absolutely perfect and the fall colors were stunning. Erin and Josh have an awesome love. If any two people were meant for each other, it would be Erin and Josh on the top of the list. Pinch me because I cannot believe it’s my job to be able to take wedding images of such kindhearted and gracious people. It is truly and honor.
