Violet! / Minneapolis In-Home Session

Joe visited the adorable home of Amy and Derrick to document Violet's 6 month! They did some reading, some snuggling, and visited a favorite nearby park for a little play-time. Check it out below... those eyes and smiles just kill me!

Cadence, Eli, and Solomon / St Paul In-Home Newborn Session

Our dear friends recently welcomed their first baby (welcome Saul!), and we had the joy of documenting them in their beautiful St Paul home. I love how these photos show the curiosity and awe of brand new parents. We can't wait to watch this little man grow into someone as kind, creative, brilliant, and benevolent as his amazing parents!

Also - can we take a moment to admire the brotherly love between Saul and his big 4-legged bro Jean Luc?

Zach: From Maternity to 6 Months / Minneapolis Family Sessions

We've had the pleasure of documenting this crew throughout their whole first year with baby Zach! We started with a stunning summer maternity session to celebrate Rachel and Matt's final weeks of just the two of them, hanging lakeside in Minneapolis. A few short months later we headed to their new home to welcome Zach to the bunch, and this winter we had them in the studio with a whole new smiley 6-month-old. We can't wait for this little man's one year!

This is a perfect example of our "Baby's First Year" Collection in action. 

Sunday Breakfast / In-Home Newborn and Family Session

This crew recently expanded to 5, and Joe went to document their Sunday tradition of making breakfast together! I love how these images hold a moment in time still, and they'll only get better with age. Plus - seriously cannot get through these without giggling at least three times. Thank you so much, Barke clan!
