My Minnesota | February Edition Somehow, I really let myself slack off of my personal shooting this month. Boo! But, I managed to bring my camera out into the community at least once in February. My hubby and I took the girls to open skate at a local ice rink. The girls did great and we all had a blast! You may notice that there are not many zero photos of us actually on the ice. Let’s just say that my ice skating skills were a little rusty. This Texan girl hasn’t put ice skates on in a few years 😉 And let’s face it, I was never a figure skating champ to begin with. Hubby remembers skating once in his entire life, soooo there was that learning curve, too. Anyway, we all survived and lived to tell about it, AND no one even fell. Annnnd, in case you didn’t know, I team up every month with a group of MN photographers and we share our perspectives on Minnesota. This month I link up to the super talented Erin. She photographs her everyday moments, and she’s really amazing at it! Check out her February in Minnesota here! Then, follow the circle to check out what my other friends […]
Victoria Lifestyle Family Photographer | Baby B turns ONE! I love capturing my littlest clients as they grow up! I photographed Baby B for the first time at her fresh 48 session when she was just days “new,” just a few weeks later at her newborn session, and again at six months old. Then, just last week, she turned ONE! Here, you can see her F48 and newborn sessions.
My Minnesota Hello friends! I’m excited to be teaming up with some local photographer friends again!

And, I really enjoy seeing their fabulous work!
victoria lifestyle newborn photographer Lifestyle and documentary newborn sessions are some of my very favorite sessions. So, I was thrilled when January was bustling with baby births! I love chatting with mommas of newborns, and watching the parents fall in love with their new babes. And, I love watching the older siblings embrace their new roles. And, since the baby days are over at my house, I really love swaddling and swaying those sweet babies! One of my favorite things about this particular session was how much big sister was in complete awe of her new baby sister. When I walked inside, big sister was snuggling baby girl. I watched her taking in every detail. I also adored the special sign that mom made for Baby B. It read: “On every candle, on every cake. With every prayer our hearts did make. On every star. both far and near. We hoped for you and now you’re here.” Welcome to the world, Baby B. Here are a few a lot of my favorites… I am currently booking newborn sessions. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or message me via my Facebook page to get on the schedule!
Waconia Birth Photographer I was talking to a friend a couple years ago about her experience with water birth. I was totally fascinated. I shared how much I would love the opportunity to photograph a water birth-or any birth for that matter. Not long after that,
Minneapolis Family Photographer The weather in Minnesota can be erratic in late October. The tree branches can be full of colorful leaves, or completely bare. We get our fair share of gorgeous, cool, crisp sunny days. Annnnd, then there are always some cold, wet, dreary ones sprinkled in. Unfortunately,
Minnetonka Wedding photographer | Rhonda and Jim I was thrilled when Rhonda contacted me about capturing her fall wedding on Lake Minnetonka. She and her fiancé planned an intimate ceremony at the beautiful Norenberg Gardens in Wayzata, followed by reception in the Lafayette Club’s gorgeous ballroom with live music from the Big Island Band. It sounds perfect, and it was!! Rhonda and Jim’s love story is just as incredible. It gave me chills when I heard it! The two of them were acquaintances in high school, and shared a circle of friends. Then, they went their separate ways. Years later, they found their way back to each other again and fell in love. Here are some of my favorite moments and details from their special day. I owe thanks to Ally of Allyson Wasmund Photography who served as my second shooter for this event. She is a wonderful talent and couldn’t be any sweeter. Thanks so much for partnering with me on this experience, Ally! Thanks for stopping by! I am looking forward to photographing another wedding.

Chanhassen lifestyle photographer Last week I shared the sneak peek of the adorable C family. I am back to share even more sun-drenched goodness from their family session. Baby CC recently turned one-year-old, so her family contacted me to document that milestone. I am so glad they did! Minnesota provided a beautiful night with perfect weather. The C family provided smiles and giggles. Baby CC showed off new teeth and new (walking) moves. Big brother was full of life, laughter and cuddles for mom, dad, and little sister. It was a good time all around. I’d love to photograph your family either outdoors, or in your home. Contact me here, or send a message via my Facebook page.

minnetonka lifestyle photographer | last days of summer I’m feeling the calm before the storm in oh so many ways! We’re hanging on to the last shreds of warmth up here in Minnesota. Winter will be here much too soon. Or should I say, “winter is coming!” Sorry, I couldn’t help it 😉 Anyway, before all that, it’s FALL, and that means the fall family photo bonanza fun will soon begin! Before it does, I’m scouting new locations and grabbing some photos of my own family. I also dusted off some rarely used lenses to spark the creative juices. This week, I picked up the lens baby edge 80. I also chose to edit this entire series in b & w. We were in full, mid-day sun, and I felt like the contrast from the harsh light played well with the b & w edit.
