Candid captures for the wild, playful, and dangerously adorable
LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHER FOR MOMS & FAMILIES IN MAPLE GROVE, MINNESOTA
You'll know exactly what to expect heading into your session. You can go about baby business as normal. And as you snuggle your new baby, nurse her, change a diaper you'll start to forget all about the camera and enjoy the little person you created.
"Kara was professional, timely, and very relaxed which helped this new mom chill out a bit. She reassured us and didn’t rush us while we went about caring for our daughter like we would any other day. The final photos were incredible. You wouldn’t even know that baby had spit up on us several times, would not let her pacifier go, and refused to sleep for two hours. She found the moments in between and captured them beautifully. She also got our photos back to us in a matter of days. I’m so thankful we have these photos to remember this season of life just as it was."

HOW IT WORKS
"Kara is so easy going and friendly during the session that it doesn’t feel overwhelming."
You Don't Have to Stress about Heading to a Studio
I'll photograph your newborn in the comfort of your own home. But this doesn't mean we have to stay inside the whole time. The crib, the changing table, your couch, your front porch—it all works!
Newborn Sessions Are Uber Relaxed
We'll have plenty of time and can move at a slow pace. I won't place your baby in unnatural positions or force anything. You don't have to make sure baby is fed or squeeze in a nap before the session. If she's hungry during the session, go ahead and
nurse! It won't matter if she's awake or asleep when I get there. I will adapt to whatever your baby needs. Every newborn session looks a little different, and that's totally fine.
We'll Highlight Your Sweetest Moments
Here are some things you might want to consider having photographed during your newborn session: Changing an outfit, nursing, rocking her to sleep, her in her crib, bath time. You may want some shots of her swaddled. I have some swaddle blankets you can borrow!

I was truly impressed with Kara’s sense of calm. She was able to stay patient with our newborn and keep our older kids engaged throughout the session. The photos she took are incredible and forever will be a wonderful reminder of our special family moments. Everything was captured so naturally and beautifully. I highly recommend Kara. She is responsive, professional and goes above and beyond.
