Linder Family… Mankato, MN Family Photographer

I absolutely love the colors this family wore for their session! Meet Brittany, Jared & Madilyn! You would never know by looking at these photos that the mosquitoes were awful! I have never seen so many mosquitoes in one summer…I am sure with all the standing water we had at the beginning of summer they were loving it. We had so much fun during this shoot. Madilyn is just beautiful! Look at those eyes and that smile. I could have photographed her all night!

Linder Family – Thank you for letting me capture the three of you on this beautiful and buggy night! It was so fun to spend some time with you…especially Madilyn who made my heart smile with all of her smiles! I hope you are enjoying your images!


Konstant Family… Mankato, MN Family Photographer

Where do I begin with this family? We had so much fun spending the evening with all of them at the parents home! There were a lot of laughs and smiles during this shoot! My good friend and wedding partner, Kim (with Kimberly Schroeder Photography) helped me out with this shoot. She did awesome with all the kiddos…dancing, singing and running to get them smile. We work very well together! I love doing these kind of shoots because to me it shows that a family is brought back together all at once to spend some quality time with each other. As I edited through these images I couldn’t help but smile at all the memories from this evening.

John, Kathy & Family – Thank you for trusting us to capture these images for you! We had a great time with a lot of laughs! We hope you are enjoying these images as much as we are!


Asher, Emma & Landon …Mankato, MN Newborn and Children Photographer

Here is another one of my favorite newborn sessions! It is not too often that I get to photograph a newborn with a sibling older than 3 years old. I absolutely loved it! We had a little more options that we could do since Asher’s siblings are old enough to hold him on their own. Asher did awesome for his newborn photos! He was very easy going and I loved having him over. The next day Emma and Landon also came to take some photos with him and of themselves. These three were so much fun to work with and I so happy I got the chance to meet them!

Kelly & Dan – Thank you for trusting me to capture your little peanut at just a few days old! I love the time I got to spend with him, Emma & Landon. I hope you all are enjoying sweet Asher and I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do!


Joie: Newborn …Mankato, MN Newborn Photographer

Finally! I have come to this blog post! These two girls are just beautiful. This is one of my favorite newborn sessions. Joie did such a great job during her shoot along with her big sister Myla! After I spent time with Joie I did some photos of the two of them and Myla is such a proud big sister. I love it! Myla’s big, beautiful eyes bring me so much joy! I am so happy I got to meet this wonderful family and look forward to seeing them more!


Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July to everyone! I hope you all are getting to spend some relaxing time with family or friends! We are headed to Iowa for the day tomorrow and then to the Wisconsin Dells from Saturday to next Tuesday with our small group from church! Calvin will LOVE all the water and we are so excited! Here is a fun shoot we did today that lasted about 10 mins with a bribe of a really good treat! How sweet is this little boy and his smile?!
