The M-B Family

Baby E is almost 6 months old and it totally brought me back to our first session when her big brother was the same age.  
So fun to see this lovely family grow by one beautiful baby girl!

Booking Now Open

Thank you all so much, all openings have been booked for 2017.

Good Morning!!!



I'm so glad you're here and are interested in booking a session with me!  Just a few things before you click the link to book. The online booking schedule is new to me!  I have tested it out with a few people and so far it has worked very smoothly.  This will take away a lot of the time discussing what dates work for BOTH of us.  Here is what I have, so you can decide what works best for you.  If you don't see session availability when you want it, I am so sorry.  This part of the business has always been tough, but I hope you can consider a different date. Sometimes switching up to another season can give your photos a whole new look.  If you are set on a certain season and don't see availability, I have lots of photographer friends.  I may not be able to give out referrals right away, but once I have my scheduling in place. . . I will gladly give out some names to see if they are a better match.  While I would love, love, love to work with you, I know style, price and flexibility are a big deal.  You should not have to compromise.  


Another thing I wanted to point out is that I have a few MINI SESSIONS on the calendar this year!  These fall on a specific date and the location is TBD, but will be in or near St. Paul.  Families will be back to back on this evening so punctuality is key for these. If you have worked with me in the past, I tend to shoot a long time.  These, however, will be quick!  Very quick.  If your focus is on an updated family photo and a handful of other shots. . . this would be a great fit.  I think it's best if you have a smaller family and your kids are fairly cooperative.  If your kids take 20 minutes to warm up, this may not be a good fit. While I feel like my strength is in story telling and details, I wanted to offer minis to open up some more availability, provide a shorter time frame and a different price range.

When you click on the link to book, please read the description.  It will tell you all about the length of time, the retainer fee required at booking and the cost of the entire session.  Please also consider the weather when booking. If you book in March, plan on an indoor lifestyle session.  If it's nice enough to hit the outdoors, we'll do both!  While reschedules may happen due to dark and rainy weather, I don't reschedule because it's too cold. We can layer up or spend some more time indoors.  If that's not the look you want, try to book for warmer months, but know Minnesota can be fickle either way!  

Last thing, on the days I have listed, I also listed a time.  In most cases, I picked the time that would best work for light and/or my schedule.  These may need to be tweaked slightly.  If you prefer morning, you can either ask me before you book and I'll see what I can do, or go ahead and book knowing that evening might have to work. 

If all of this looks good, please click on this link at the bottom of this post to book your spot today!  Please understand that some dates will go fast and that once I post this link it is out of my control which do.  I know it's hard to plan ahead, but if you see something that works. . . I would scoop it up!  Thank you again for your support and understanding as my business grows.  I appreciate you all so much!!! xo Sarah
