“The little things? The little moments? They aren’t little.

Jennifer has quickly become Minnesota’s premier newborn photographer and is recognized for the ability she has to capture new life and all the finest details of your little one…those delicate features you always want to remember but are so fleeting even in those first few weeks.

Newborns change and grow so quickly, and the first few weeks of life are a blur of sleepless nights, feedings, and diaper changes. From tiny fingers and toes to curious expressions and cute little yawns, newborns have a charm and innocence that is unmatched. Jennifer takes pride in capturing such special and miraculous moments and providing you with images you will adore for a lifetime.

Over the last 17 years, Jennifer has photographed hundreds of newborns and her work is easily recognized by the beautiful lighting, flawless skin tones, and meticulous posing perfected in every image. Along with years of experience safely posing & handling newborns, Jennifer has traveled the world teaching the art of newborn photography. Rest assured, you’re in good hands!
