St. Paul Landmark Center Wedding

I’m excited to share with you Joe and Cia’s St. Paul Landmark Center Wedding from last spring.  I know I say this often, but better late than never, right? HA!  We started our day with getting ready photos in the gorgeous bridal suite at the St. Paul Hotel.  This was my first time shooting in there.  It was a quaint room with beautiful light and decor.  Perfect for all those intimate photos before the big event!

I’ll never forgot J&C’s first look.  It is truly one of the most sweetest ones I’ve ever captured.  You can tell that they had not a care in the world.  All they wanted to do was be there with each other.  After, we bummed around downtown St. Paul for some fun bridal party photos!

If there is one thing I can say about Joe & Cia, it’s that the center of their wedding was family.  Cia comes from a large family and it was so fun to see all her siblings incorporated into their day.  For Joe it was a bittersweet day as his father had passed away not too long ago and the family was missing him being there.  They made sure to speak of him all throughout the day and it was clear what a huge influence he was on Joe’s life.  It was incredibly touching to watch them speak over and over again in such love of this great man.

Minneapolis Spring Family Photos

Every time I look at these photos I can’t help but think of the song “spring is here, spring is here, it’s the best time of the year”, haha!  I was so happy to have the opportunity to take some gorgeous Minneapolis Spring Family Photos for Adelyn and her family.  It’s been kind of a slow start this year with the tree buds and flowers blooming, but this week, everything is just looking gorgeous!  Now if only all these gorgeous blooms were around all summer, i’d be in photography heaven!!  Happy first birthday sweet Adelyn!

Minnesota Maternity Photographer

You guys, I’m so sorry it’s been so long since my last blog post!!  I always mean well, really but life just seems to get in the way so much.  Between work, and family/life balance, blogging is one of those things that tends to fall to the wayside of my to-do list.  I’m hopping to start blogging a bunch of older sessions but well I make no promises, haha!

Can I just say I love being a Minnesota Maternity Photographer!! I’ve been capturing a lot more maternity sessions lately and it’s been so fun.  I love pampering mama’s to be and showing what an amazing creature they are by carrying such precious babies.  It really is a miracle what our body can do and I love being able to capture all the glory on my camera.  So with Mother’s Day just around the corner I thought how fitting it would be to start out with Alix’s studio maternity session from a few weeks ago.  Isn’t she gorgeous!  So excited to meet this little one when she makes her debut!

Colette came to the studio a few weeks later than most the babies I photograph due to some health issues but oh was she sweet to me at almost a month old.  Look at the most adorable smile she gave me wide awake!  We also had fun getting some of those sweet sleepy shots with her too.  If there’s one thing to note, its what a little ray of sunshine she is to everyone who meets her.  Such a sweet girl and it was so fun to capture her.  She is adored especially by her big sister Quinn who could not stop talking about her baby Coco…(insert heart melt).  Here are a few of my favorites from Colette’s session!
