Mommy & Me Mini Session | Leslie & Asher

Okaaay when I met these two in the parking lot, my jaw dropped. I love when clients are on the same page as you when it comes to an idea. 

Asher, you're pretty darn lucky to have a mommy that has such a pure and happy soul and loves you so so much. 

Thanks for choosing me to document your special moments! 


Newborn Lifestyle | Ellen Twins

Ah...what a dream it was to be able to capture some memories for the Ellens. This was my first TWIN newborn session so I was a bit nervous going into it until we started shooting. They were the sweetest babies and they're on their way to a modeling career...or the President/Vice President of the the United States, whichever they choose. #GirlPower

Meet the Ellens. 

Sioux Empire Fair Mini Sessions 2018

Okay, remember me telling you all that I had an announcement and it had to do with the fair pictures that I'm posting? Next year, I'll be offering mini sessions at the fair! 

Let me know if you're interested and I'll add you to my contact list for next year. Just send me a message in my 'Get in Touch' section on the website. 

Until then, enjoy the model status of my friends Kara and Seth. They totally nailed it and we had so much fun! 


Family Weekend | Minneapolis

Cody, Trevor, Abbie & I all headed to Minneapolis for a night to go see Guns N Roses! Before we headed to the hotel we checked out a local put put joint, Can Can Wonderland. SERIOUSLY. This place was instagram heaven! I highly recommend going there. In fact, does anyone want their engagement session there? 😍

This comes straight from their website: 

"We offer a truly unique, 18-hole artist designed, indoor mini golf course. But Can Can Wonderland isn’t just mini golf; it’s a wonderland full of arts-based fauna and flora for you to explore and delight in! Our boardwalk is full of attractions and amusements (created by/with artists). Our two stages offer a wide array of local and regional talents. We have a couple bars…we might have a secret bar! We have noshes! We even have a few unicorns."

Oliver Saint | Newborn Lifestyle

Have I mentioned how much I love lifestyle sessions?! I'll be honest, I'm completely obsessed.

"Brittany, what's a lifestyle session?" 

Basically I come hang out with you and your family in your home. Weird? Not at all! Think about it. You're your most comfortable in your own home, right?  I'm just there to document your real life as it's happening. The pictures are super intimate and shows so much more emotion than a set of unnatural poses.

I went to high school with Austin and Ashlee so it was a blast getting to hang out again with their new little family. Check out their newborn lifestyle section with their new addition, Oliver.

Ariana & Max | Second Shooter

Have I mentioned how amazing my mentors are? Well they are.

I had an awesome opportunity to second shoot for Corey Gross last month and these are just a few of my favorite images from the day. 

Ariana and Max were so in love and happy, not even the downpour during the ceremony could wipe the smiles off their faces. I think the coolest part of shooting weddings is capturing pure love and joy and they both had that radiating from them. 

Check out Corey's work here!


Evy's Cake Smash

Oh, little Miss Evy Sue. I remember when your mama texted me to tell me the news she was expecting you. So many emotions! Your best friend, Otto, was currently cooking and you were only two months behind. I can't wait to see who you grow up to be. You're going to conquer the world, sweetie. 

Evy's cake smash was a hit. She couldn't get enough of the sugar overload; I was pretty jealous. Mama went to give Evy a bath to clean up, and I HAD to ask if they had milk. I think they thought I was crazy, but boy was it worth it! 

Happy Birthday, Evalyn!
