Minneapolis Newborn Photos

Sweet baby Keyla came to the studio for her Minneapolis Newborn Photos this week.  I had fun trying out a new pose in one of my buckets with her and I have to say she nailed it!  We went with soft blush and cream for her session and she looked great!  I’m friends with Keyla’s auntie and funny story, I pulled the same outfit (pictured in photo #3) to use for her session and Keyla’s mom showed up with it.  Such a funny coincidence!  Clearly she looked gorgeous in it.  Great minds do think a like!

Charleston Event Center Wedding

Severine & Michael had their gorgeous wedding ceremony at the Charleston Event Center.  In the past year this venue was recently renovated. This was my first time shooting a wedding at CEC and, wow, what a gorgeous spot!  Even with the barren trees this location was rocking my socks off.  I imagine this is what all those cute plantations look like down south.  This Charleston Event Center wedding had southern charm everywhere you turned.

We started out photos with it being green and by the time the ceremony was over there were huge snowflakes flying!  In all my years of photographing weddings, I’ve never seen snow like this!   I’m so happy that Severine and Michael were game for going out in the elements to capture these images. Although we were all pretty cold, the photos are nothing short of amazing!

The reception was held at CEC’s sister site Vadnais Heights Commons.  Severine is originally from France and it was so fun to hear her dear friends talk of their time together and during the ceremony they even spoke in French, one of the most beautiful languages in my opinion!  Enjoy a sneak peek into their wedding.

Newborn Photos MN | Olivia

Olivia loved to be wrapped snug as a bug!  She had a few accidents and I had to chuckle as her parents apologize profusely.  It comes with the territory and we’re totally use to it!  So never fear, it’s okay if it happens, we’re expecting it and just move on to the next thing once baby is all cleaned up, haha!  As you can see it didn’t affect her cuteness one bit! We are fully booked for February and are now booking for March and beyond.  We always suggest booking your newborn session a few months in advance, as it’s the only way we can guarantee you a spot on our calendar.  However, we know how busy life gets, so if you are needing a session last minute, send us an eMail and we’ll see if we can fit you in!

One Year Photos | Veda

I’ve had the privilege of capturing so many milestones for Danielle & Jordan.  First when they got married, and then when Veda was born, along with her 6 month session and now her one year photos in my Minneapolis studio!  It’s absolutely crazy to me how fast time flies by!  But I’m so glad that i’m here and able to share in this special journey with all my clients.  I couldn’t imagine life any other way!

I also have to share that Veda is probably going to be a rock star some day.  Her daddy Jordan is in a band and the minute he turned on some heavy guitar that girl started dancing.  I think we probably played his song on repeat for about 20 minutes.  Veda gave her best smiles when daddy’s music was on in the background.  It was seriously the most absolute precious thing i’ve ever witnessed!!

Minneapolis Portrait Photographer | Aurielle

Oh my goodness!  I’m going gaga over this mama daughter session!  Heather contacted me about doing a 1 year session for her sweetie Aurielle a while back but she wanted to make sure we took some precious photos of the two of them together.  Needless to say I am in love with how these turned out and I think every mom needs these types of photos with their kiddos.  So many times us moms are behind the camera and we don’t get a chance to capture the special bond we have with our kids in front of the camera.  Being a Minneapolis portrait photographer, I’m thinking maybe this would be a fun mini-session idea in the studio!  I’ll keep you updated on that, but for now, enjoy some uber cuteness on the blog!
