Kelsey + Odin | Motherhood Photography | Minneapolis, Minnesota

There are so many good moms out there. There are a few amazing moms out there, Kelsey being one of them.

After casually knowing each other in high school, we were able to reconnect when I moved back to Rochester from San Diego. We became moms within a little over a year from each other and have been able to spend some brunches, happy hours and child-less nights out together since. It’s been so fun to see how Kelsey really does it all – with so much love, ease and thoughtfulness. She’s completely engaged with her friends while still being attentive to her little guy Odin. She’s a full-time working mom who still seems to be constantly present and pursuing her passions. Basically, she’s amazing and I feel like I always have so much to learn from her.

Kelsey and Odin stopped up to Minneapolis last month to get some motherhood photos. Check out their sweetness below.

Newborn Lifestyle Photography | Lake of the Isles | Minneapolis, MN

There’s something so relaxing and natural about shooting newborn photography sessions in client’s homes. It also doesn’t hurt when those clients are your sweet friends! This past November I was lucky enough to join my friends Beth and James for their new baby boy’s newborn photos. I documented their morning as the they loved on the newest addition – rocking him, feeding him, and getting in some serious snuggles. The day unfolded organically as we took time to get photos of the family of four together.

Their beautiful Lake of the Isles home in Minneapolis served as the perfect backdrop for our session with it’s bright, natural light and neutral tones. Beth happens to be one of the most stylish gals I know – be sure to check out her GORGEOUS lingerie, loungewear and sleepwear store, Room No. 3 on 50th and France in Edina, MN.

Scroll to the bottom and you’ll see photos of his big brother adoring him and also sketching a Goodnight Moon art piece for his nursery. This is one lucky little guy to be surrounded by so much fun and love! I truly cannot wait to watch him grow up.
