Watson Family | Minneapolis Kid & Family Studio Photographer

Check out this awesome family!  I met Sonja a year ago and photographed her and her husband in November, but it was so great to meet the whole team this time around!  They opted for an in-studio mini session, which moves quickly but allows for some fun images without too much "crazy" (just the right amount)! :)  Thanks so much, guys!

Check out Sonja & Empress' couple's session from November, too!

Sjodin Family | Minneapolis Kid & Family Studio Photographer

A super-sweet holiday family session with some of my most favorite client-friends, Farrah & Kevin & little Cora!  (I've been blessed to photograph Cora since way back when she was still in her mama's tummy!) :)  Happy holidays!

Gilbert & Sweere Family Portraits & Headshots | Minnesota Portrait Photographer

This was a multi-purpose portrait session recently with a family I've know for 15 years - ok, counting back is a little crazy!  The session inquiry started as portraits of Ann and grew into family portraits and headshots for Nick.  Might as well, right?!

First, the family:
 And the "formal" portraits/headshots...

W Family | Minnesota Outdoor Child Photographer

I've photographed this family as part of a larger family session in recent years, but it was so fun to focus on just the four (with the pups = 6) of them!  Two super-sweet girls and an awesome family!  Some favorites:

Pagel Trio Check in | Minneapolis Studio Child Photographer

Some holiday cuteness for this white winter wonderland that is Minnesota today!

Twice a year I get to photograph this awesome family.  And they just keep growing up so fast (even though I tell them every time to knock it off)! :)  This most recent session was at my studio and featured both holiday and dance/dress up themes - so fun!  (Love the last one - this is real life, baby!)

 And a taste of real life! :)

Nash Maternity Session | Midwest Baby & Maternity Photographer

Sara & David are pretty much my most favorite people (Sara's my best gal pal and college roommate) and I can NOT wait to meet and photography their baby boy in March.  In the meantime, here's a few maternity images we made just before their baby shower near Wisconsin Dells.  Congrats you two!  xoxo :)

Dempsey Mother-Daughter(s) | Minneapolis Kid & Maternity Studio Photographer

A super cute mother-daughter (and baby belly) mini session at the studio recently.  Just, love. :)  Thanks so much you two!  I wish I had images like these from when I was a little girl (so I'm making up for it now) - priceless!
