Gina + Dan | Cozy In-Home Maternity Session - St. Paul, MN Maternity Photographer

Gina - In Home Maternity Session-9.jpg

I love to watch my wedding clients become parents -- as their family begins to grow, I am so honored to document the next chapters of their love story.  I joined Gina and Dan back at their charming St. Paul home to capture the next chapter of their fairy tale -- parenthood!

When they found out they were expecting, their news got even more exciting when they learned they were expecting TWINS!  Because what's even more exciting than one baby?!  TWO BABIES! 

During their cozy, in-home maternity session, mama-to-be Gina was simply glowing with anticipation for her baby boys, due in March.  The boys were busy kicking and dancing in mama's belly as I snapped away inside the beautiful, relaxed nursery.  It was so fun to talk diapers and teething and onsies and all things baby with the mama-to-be! (My baby girl is 7 months old already!)

Though not due until March, we're all currently praying that the baby boys decide to stay put until at least Mid-February.  There will be double the baby snuggles happening soon!

Congratulations, lovebirds!  I am so excited to watch your family grow and document these incredible steps in your journey together.

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

 Laur Robinson Photography |

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!

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.

Christine + Adam | Waiting for Baby - Twin Cities Maternity Photographer

Isn't she gorgeous?  As a Twin Cities maternity photographer, I love getting the opportunity to photograph pregnant mamas (and daddy, siblings, puppies and anyone else in the family!) as they anticipate the arrival of their sweet baby.  Even more fun, I will be there to document when Christine and Adam's precious baby arrives and meets the family for the first time.  They also are waiting to find out baby's gender until birth... even more of a fun surprise!

As a new mama myself, I am acutely aware of all the changes that a pregnant mama is going through -- the big things and the little things.  But mostly, I love to observe the love and joy of a couple in love, waiting to snuggle their babe.  And when you add in a sweet puppy big brother in Sebastian, you have one super cute family photo... just waiting to add baby!

Congratulations to these soon-to-be parents!  Cannot wait to meet baby N in a few short weeks!
