Rochester, MN Family Photographer: Z family

I love when a sessions just comes together. With this family we were originally scheduled the day before which was about 30 degrees colder, windy and rainy. I had an unexpected opening and even though it wasn't supposed to be the most ideal light, it turned out perfectly. From the initial outfit planning to the end result, it was perfect. I love when there is a concept in my head and it all becomes a reality through my photos.

Rochester, MN Newborn Photographer: New Moms

I love photographing moms with their babies, well dads too of course. I just love that mom connection. It's not a new one, mother and baby have known each other for quite some time even if baby didn't grow in their bellies. Typically two things happen when I hand baby to mama. They either fully relax or wake up because they assume it's dinner time. Enjoy these gorgeous mama's with their precious babies.

Rochester MN and Mesa AZ family photographer: W family

Last month I received the news that my close friends had accepted a job with Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ. I was so thrilled that they had this opportunity. An opportunity to closer to family, a great job opportunity and a huge adventure. However, this also meant that my family was loosing some great friends. Our boys are only 1 month apart. They grew up together. My husband and I actually introduced them to each to each other.

So, this is a huge change for them and for us. As soon as I got word they were officially leaving and that their house had sold, I made a beeline to their place for a little photo shoot. Something to help them remember their first home as a family and their time in Rochester.

Rochester MN Newborn Twin Photographer: Ava and Niam

I was so excited to meet 4 week old newborn twins, Ava and Niam. Twins are never easy, but they certainly made it look easy. They were so sweet with each other and did great for photos as well. It's a challenge with newborn twins, but I loved the challenge and I can't wait to see these two grow up!
