MINNESOTA NEWBORN AND FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

Redefining “the perfect photo”
through a child-led, fun-filled
family photography experience.

SERVING MINNEAPOLIS, EDINA, AND BEYOND SINCE 2010

Let me tell you a story of two families…

One family did everything perfectly. They bought perfectly matching outfits that were perfectly in style. They sat perfectly straight while smiling perfectly for the camera. And today, their images look perfectly nice hanging in their perfect home.

Family number two, on the other hand…well. Things went a little differently. They let Jack wear the dino shirt he’s tugged on three days a week for the last six months, and they let Chloe bring her well-loved stuffed bunny along for the ride. They both struggled to sit still (ya know, like most kids!), so Dad chased them around the room and covered them in tickles and kisses when he caught them. Mom laughed until she cried, surrounded by the imperfect, familiar chaos of home. Meanwhile, my camera clicked. 

As the days passed and babies grew, which photos do you think meant the world?

IF YOU’RE DREAMING OF AN IMPERFECTLY PERFECT PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE,
YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!

oh hey!

I’m Megan, and I believe
real magic’s in the mess.

As a busy mom, I know finding time to step in front of the camera is about as impossible as finding time to read that book your best friend lent you two months ago! That’s why, when I get to, I want those photos to really, really count. I want to look back on them three decades, two moves, and countless adventures later and feel like I’m stepping right back in time. I want to yell, “oh my gosh, that look is so Olive,” “remember when Theodore was obsessed with red and black” or “Tom still makes Ford laugh just like that!” I want photos that feel as uniquely “us” as the fingerprints slowly coating the pages of our family albums.

That’s why I’m driven to deliver a Minnesota newborn & family photography experience that doesn’t rely on a stylish wardrobe, meticulous hair, or expert posing to create beauty. Instead, we capture the beauty that’s already there. The beauty you live every single day. 

When did I decide to approach family photography this way?

Transforming the everyday into priceless heirlooms.

Surrounded by kids who seem to grow every time you blink, you already know how important it is to savor this season of life as it is before it’s gone for good. But when life gets busy, planning for a photo session just doesn’t seem possible. That’s why I’ve intentionally created a Minnesota family photography experience for day-job-having, mom-guilt-battling, real-moment-embracing families like yours. I can’t wait to bring you the effortless, sincere session of your dreams!
