MN Maternity Photographer
At Miss Nora's newborn session I asked if they would like using a green wreath. Little did I know that not only did they love the colors and style but that momma grew up with dogwood and it was very special to her! As a Northfield newborn photographer I absolutely love making these special connections with clients and this was beyond meant to be!
Miss Nora wasn't as excited about picture day as mom and dad were but she still tolerated me bugging her and we were able to get lots of beautiful sleepy images of this precious girl.
Some of my favorite images as a MN newborn photographer are the cuddles with mom and dad! There is nothing like a daddy proudly holding his new baby or a mother snuggling this amazing blessing that she grew inside of her!
I ALWAYS add in momma to daddy's picture and add in daddy to momma's picture. This way you get TWO (or more) family pictures with your sweet blessing in your final gallery.
As a Northfield newborn photographer I always try to add extra earthy textures and natural tones to add to images. I love a bit of greenery or other textures!
This cream sheepskin is a favorite and if you look through the blog I can guarantee you will see it pop up again and again. It is so beautiful, soft and versatile! I would love every color that Luneberry has to offer but turns out I have to take it slow because there are tons of beautiful newborn props out there!
I love to use it in buckets, baskets, trenches on the floor and pretty much everywhere so you can see where it is a favorite.
While Nora was awake I took the opportunity to capture a few images with her eyes open and to let her get some wiggles out. Look at that sweet yawn... and boom asleep!
As you can see Nora wasn't awake for too long but just long enough to see her eyes, take a few images and conk back out for a few more poses!
Thank you so much for coming to me to preserve Nora's newborn images! It truly means so much to be honored with such an important job and I couldn't love meeting new families more! Congratulations and many blessings!

I have known this beautiful family since before we were married. I had the honor of going to school with Chris and being in the marching band together (yes marching band)! These two lovebirds have been together since forever just like Eric and I.
As a MN maternity photographer I have been waiting for session as I knew they were hoping to add to their family. We have been praying that they would be blessed with another baby and are so happy for them as they prepare for their daugter Adeline to arrive.
We had originally planned to hold their session at a local park but with this unpredictable winter there was not nearly enough snow to have the beautiful scenery I envisioned for this special session.
I was hoping for trees dripping with snow and and the ground completely covered with a fluffy layer white.
With the ground being mostly brown and the trees looking blah I reverted to a back up plan.
We set out for Log Cabin Pines, LLC in Elko where there are plenty of evergreens! There was just enough snow to lightly cover the trees and it was a super cute tree farm.
They had sleds for kids to get pulled down to get a tree in and to pull a tree back in and provided the saws for you to cut your own tree. If you are looking for a Christmas tree next year go check it out!
We took family images first and then let Miss Reagan take a break so we could take a few of mom and dad and then some of mamma and her adorable bump!
As a MN maternity photographer I wanted to take a million more pictures of this gorgeous momma but it was super cold and everyone needed to go warm up!
Plus I had so many gorgeous images already! ...it's just easy to get carried away when you are photographing such beautiful people.
Thank you for the honor of choosing me to preserve this special time in your lives!

Meet Hayden. He was super sassy during his session and decided awake was the way to go.
As a Northfield Newborn Photographer I like to give jazzed up babies some time to relax. Sometimes they need a bit more time to kick around, look at what is going around and listen to the different sounds of the studio.
During this awake time I like to talk to babies and work on taking a few images of them awake. As much as Northfield newborn photographers typical job is to capture sleepy images it is nice to see a few awake images too. If they are happy, of course!
The studio is filled with the sound of white noise (to mimic inside mamma) and sometimes it can take a minute for little ones to adjust to the new sounds as they have finally started to get used to the quiet of the world. I know that sounds crazy but it was noisy inside his mamma.
Hayden was definitely the exception and spent a good amount of time hanging out happy and kicking around.
Part of my job as a Northfield newborn photographer is to roll with each babies personality and create beautiful images regardless of how baby is feeling that day. So Hayden's family got more awake images and they were still perfectly sweet and showed his sassy personality.
Congratulations on your beautiful baby boy and thank you so much for including me in this special time in your lives!
Many blessings to you all.

As a Northfield Newborn Photographer I have heard so many different birth stories and learned so much about deliveries. I was so excited to hear Mr. Jax's birth story because it wasn't your typical story, he was born at home!
I love hearing alternate birth stories because every mother's story is different and every baby comes into the world in their own special way. After having 4 children I have experienced this firsthand.
Jax was born at his home after mom had delivered her other babies at the hospital. As a Northfield Newborn Photographer I am hearing more and more natural birth stories and I really think they are beautiful. Whether it be a home delivery, a water birth (or both!), birthing at a center or a hospital your story is beautiful.
Each family that is expecting should talk to their doctor and with one another to find the right fit for them. That's one of the first steps of being a parent, making a decision that is yours and your partners.
This handsome man was born in the water in a loft area in their home. In the night big sister woke up and got to experience her baby brothers birth. How beautiful is that?!
These kiddos are so excited to have a new baby brother and he is going to be so very blessed to have these older siblings to play with and learn from.
I'm sure mamma is loving all the help from big sister and big brother as they are old enough to not only be great helpers but also to be able to go out and play and give her some time with baby Jax.
Congratulations on your new little boy, he is so beautiful and I am truly honored that you chose me as your Northfield Newborn Photographer.
