Newborn Baby H

My latest newborn session was with sweet Baby H. This little cutie was so easy going - and very much awake during our time together. Mom and Dad are besotted with their new baby girl, which is always so fun to witness. Here are some of my favorites... I just love Baby H's delicate features... how sweet is this face and they way she is holding her hands?! [...]

Baby A

I had the absolute pleasure of taking sweet Baby A's newborn photos last week. He was such a cutie - and so alert! He had fabulous wrinkles and rolls, being an impressive 10+ pounds at birth - way to go, Mom! Love this shot of A staring at his pudgy hand... Look at that face! We finally broke him at the end of the shoot - snooz[...]

Baby L

Last week, I had the absolute pleasure of photographing of my colleague, Nancy's newborn granddaughter, sweet Baby L! This little angel was a dream to photograph - so calm and absolutely gorgeous... her delicate features had baby girl written all over them. Here are a few from this amazing session. This sunflower serves as a soft bathtub assist, but it made for[...]

Baby E

A couple of weeks ago, I became a proud auntie for the 4th time to sweet baby E! This is the second child for my sister-in-law and her husband, who also have a gorgeous 2 year old girl who absolutely melts my heart every time I see her. I couldn't get enough snuggle time with the newest member of their family. We first met E at the hospital the day after he was born w[...]

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Last weekend I took photos of my friend Tara and her beautiful family - there was a theme to our story - the very hungry caterpillar! Her oldest girl, B, is obsessed with this story, and the little one, I, has her own obsession with the stuffed variety... This photo of 8 month old baby "I" has become one of my favorites - I just love her expression and the [...]

Black Bean and Mango Salsa

Several years ago, a friend sent me a fabulous recipe for black bean and mango salsa. I was living in Arizona at the time while attending graduate school. That was about 10 years ago, and since then I have lost the actual recipe. However, I remembered most of the ingredients and have continued to prepare the salsa with my own modifications over the years. It remains m[...]

Newborn Photography - Baby H

Last week I had the honor of taking sweet Baby H's newborn photos. This little guy was so alert during the session - just look at those amazing, bright eyes! His parents are besotted with their new baby boy. I just loved capturing the shared moments between the three of them. Baby H was able to catch a few z's during the shoot - love this one... [...]

3 Month Photo Shoot

Little Z turned 3 months earlier this month. I took this little cutie's newborn photos back in December and was amazed at how much she has grown! She has such beautiful, soulful blue eyes - not to mention that gorgeous smile! I just love this age. "I am strong, I am confident, I am WOMAN!" Love this photo :) Z's Grandma embroidered this blanket when her [...]

Lifestyle Family Session

My best friend Amy and her husband Tim have impeccable modern style. They bought their 1950's rambler 7 years ago and have transformed it into a sophisticated modern oasis for their sweet family of four. I have been wanting to do a lifestyle photography session, and thought their home would make the perfect backdrop. We began with the kids in their whimsical bedrooms.[...]

Wisconsin Road Trip

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved a good road trip. Last week I wrote a blog post about my latest road trip adventure to the Apostle Islands ice caves off of Lake Superior in Wisconsin. It was about a 4 hour drive from Minneapolis to the caves. We took the scenic route through Wisconsin. It was such a beautiful drive. We drove through farms with sheep, horse[...]
