Rochester, MN Senior Photographer: Hadi

Senior season is in full swing. Guys are great to work with. They are very no fuss and are just looking to "get through" it all. I love when we can connect and they tell me "that wasn't so bad and I actually had fun" at the end of a session. I'll take it!

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.
