blog_title_decorationGARET RAY | IN HOME NEWBORN SESSION

Lately, I’ve been so blessed to photograph so many darling newborn sessions. I seriously love shooting each and every one, but this little guy is extra special, as he’s my cousin Jill’s precious baby. Garet is absolute perfection – his little belly, and his perfect wispy hair, and the teeny, tiny everything.  It’s so incredible to see Jill as a mother, I know Garet will be loved beyond measure by her and daddy, Alex, and the entire extended family (and there’s a lot of us, as Jill and I have approximately 30 first cousins!).

Welcome to the world, Garet Ray!

blog_title_decorationANNIE & JOHN | ENGAGEMENT ON LAKE MINNETONKA

Meet Annie & John! I am so excited for this adorable couple to tie the knot in just a few short weeks! I hadn’t met John before the engagement session, but it’s pretty easy to see why Annie loves him – he was all smiles and full of jokes and laughter during our session, and it’s so obvious how much they both adore each other. We hung out at Annie’s childhood home on Lake Minnetonka, where I got to meet the entire family, who were all there prepping for a big 4th of July weekend. Shoutout to her brothers for backflipping into the water (not pictured!) and keeping us laughing/giving us a hard time during the session!

Congrats to the future Mr & Mrs!!

blog_title_decorationDIEM & ERIK | PRIVATE CEREMONY ON LAKE MINNETONKA

Diem & Erik were married in a personal and intimate ceremony at Erik’s dad’s beautiful home in Excelsior on Lake Minnetonka. Their day centered around a ceremony that was personal and heartfelt, and began with each of their guests painting a leaf on a piece of art. After the ceremony, and photos by the lake, it was off to The River Room at Aster Cafe for dinner, drinks, and a continued celebration. In lieu of a first dance, the couple played music together and their guests demanded an encore!

To the newlywedded couple, thank you for inviting me to be a part of your day. I’m so happy for you as you continue your life journey together!
