TWINS - Baby C + Baby M | St. Paul Newborn Photographer

Kurtz Twins - In Home Newborn Session St Paul-123.jpg

When Baby Colton + Baby Max made their way into the world, they had to hang out at the NICU for a little while.  So it was quite the celebration when they finally got to come home!  These two beautiful baby boys are already two peas in a pod, already fighting for crib space and the attention of their parents... but man, oh man.... they are SO DARN CUTE!

I shared an afternoon in St. Paul at Gina + Dan's home snuggling babies, taking a few photographs and sharing my secret tips for baby calming.... I've got a 9 month head start on parenthood, so I was happy to share my best baby hacks and reminisce about the days of sleeping in.  (Best hack:  if you have a Google Home, you can totally tell google to "play soothing sounds" and it will shush your baby to sleep!). 

Now go enjoy all the newborn goodness of these little gents!

Dana + Stephen | Winter Dream Maternity Session - Delano, MN Maternity Photographer

This dreamy winter maternity session was beautiful and sentimental, all at the same time.  You see, we photographed Dana and Stephen's stunning Minnesota Harvest Apple Orchard wedding back in 2015.  Dana also happened to be a bridesmaid in Krystal and Justin's gorgeous summer wedding at Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.

So when Dana reached out to me this past fall with the news that she was expecting, I was absolutely THRILLED!  Dana and Stephen have since moved to California, but they were planning a trip home to Minnesota for the holidays.  Perfect timing to grab a snowy winter maternity session, with a beautiful baby bump showing!

Dana chose a vibrant long red gown for her maternity photos and it hugged every beautiful, growing curve to perfection!  We began our session with some candlelight images in my studio, and then headed to a nearby park to take some dreamy sunset images.  That light was absolutely SPECTACULAR!  Red never looked so good.

Can't wait to meet their sweet baby girl, due in March!

The V Family | Tree Farm Family Fun - Anoka, MN Family Photographer

LOVED adventuring with the V family at the Hansen Tree Farm in Anoka!  They added a beautiful baby boy to their family earlier this spring (I was lucky enough to be present to photograph Baby Jens' birth experience!) and these were their first family photos together.  I've known mama Jill for 10+ years, but I'd never met her older kiddos until our session... It was so lovely to finally meet them, as I feel like I've known their personalities (through Jill's fabulous social media posts!) for many years already.  They are such a loving, spunky, adorable family and the kiddos have such a zest for exploring and learning new things.  What a treat to photograph this beautiful family!  Here are a few of my favorites from their session!

Forget colored cupcakes and balloons in a box -- this is the most unique and awesome gender reveal I've ever witnessed!  Brandon and Kassie share the news of their baby's gender with colored smoke from a real steam engine locomotive at the Minnesota Transportation Museum in St. Paul, MN, where Brandon is a volunteer and Board member.
