Rochester, Mn Anniversary Photographer: Janet and Bill

When I say you need to get your photos done, I mean it. seriously. We do great for kids up to about 5, then we are awesome about senior photos, then we get married and then maybe some family photos once we start our families. Then what? We may get a church directory photo?? Maybe a cell shot on vacation? Quit thinking you need to color your hair, loose weight, find better clothes, yada yada yada, excuse excuse. Now is your time. today. a moment in time.

I introduce you to my parents.

They are celebrating 40 years together in a little over a month. 40 years, 7 kids, 60+ foster children, successful careers, exciting adventures and their share of health issues. They are still amazing. They bicker like they should, they love like no one is looking and they give like they have everything and are willing to have nothing.

Don't put off for tomorrow what you can do today.

Rochester, MN Outdoor Newborn Photographer: Michael

When Michael's mom contacted me and asked if I did outdoor newborn photos, I said "Yes"! I typically do them at then end of the session as a bonus if baby is still willing. However she then asked if we could do them all outside. This wasn't something I had tried before but I was more then willing to give it a go.

I was a beautiful day at 80+ degrees. Obviously in Minnesota we don't get too many days likes this, so I suppose my outdoor newborns are limited to the summer months.

Michael's big sister did awesome as well and just totally loved on him the whole time.

I was just in love with Savannah. She looked just like a little porcelain doll with her strawberry blonde hair and her beautiful skin. So fun!

Rochester, MN Newborn photographer: Edison

I was so excited to meet Edison. I knew I'd be just coming off of my own maternity leave, so getting back to work would be a mix of feelings. I am happy to say, I loved every minute of it. What a great way to get back in the swing of things.

Rochester, Mn Newborn and Maternity Photographer: Pippa

I first met Robyn and Kim when I was chosen to photograph their beautiful Plummer house wedding a couple of years ago. So when I found out Robyn was pregnant, I was so excited to meet their new baby girl Pippa.
