Savage In-Home Family Session | Baby Navy’s 6 Month Session

Oh how I love in home family sessions! There is something so wonderfully sacred about the simplicity of taking portraits in the living room you do so much life in – the couch you cuddle on, the spaces your family is growing up! I got to photograph sweet baby Navy and her proud parents, Mary […]

Romantic Minneapolis Engagement Session | Hannah + Wil

These two!! Hannah and Wil might be the most “we are super comfortable in front of the camera!” couple I’ve ever photographed! Usually people are a little unsure and self conscious at first (100% normal, me too!) but these two hopped right into their engagement session like a couple of seasoned pros! Their clear adoration […]

They had a Frank Sinatra themed cocktail hour and the bridal party was in all black, with bright colorful […]

Minnetonka Engagement Session | Mallory & Kevin

  This engagement session was especially close to my heart because Mallory is one of my best friends from high school! She and I spent so many years confiding in each other about crushes, sleepovers full of boy talk and wondering about who our future husbands would be – so it was an absolute joy […]
