PARTY TONIGHT

MEET YA AT MY CRIB

Relaxed Minneapolis Newborn Lifestyle Photography

I'm your Minneapolis Maternity, Newborn, & Birth Photographer based in Elk River, MN. From babies throwing midnight parties to super hero preschoolers, little ones are my jam. I apologize in advance for saying, "Oh my goodness" a gazillion times during your session. And my voice might take on a soprano squeakiness. Trust me, I'm fine. Just excited!

"I was truly impressed by Kara's sense of calm."

Photographing a baby is my way of helping a new mom hold onto precious memories. It's my way of telling her without telling her.

Moms ten steps ahead of me and ten thousand steps ahead of me told me to slow down, to remember, to not take those moments for granted because it goes so fast. And more often than not, I merely rolled my eyes before resuming my tired stare and dry crying.

 

It's near impossible to tell a new mom that it'll go by quickly. Hard to remind her to take it all in when she's tired, anxious, lonely, desperate.

Creating photos of a mom's new baby is like placing a hand curled around a finger, a micro yawn, and a confused and very furrowed brow inside a neatly wrapped box where time won't destroy. That mom can open life the lid off that box and breathe those moments in when she forgets to slow down (because we all do) and when time does it's thing (because it always will).

Where Do Newborn Sessions Take Place?

Newborn lifestyle sessions typically take place in clients' homes all over the Twin Cities metro. Depending on the time of year, newborn photos can be taken outdoors. Outdoor newborn sessions take place about an hour before sunset. Fresh 48 Sessions can take place in the hospital, at a birthing center, or at home. These sessions take place within the first two days of life.
