What are mini sessions? Mini sessions are short photography sessions that typically last between 20 and 30 minutes.  They’re perfect for updated family photos, holiday card photos, baby or child milestones, couple photos, or other announcement photos.

Since these sessions go by quickly, it’s important to make a plan to have a successful session.

I love this family so much and I was so excited when Erin asked me to photograph her kids for the second time! The weatherman predicted rain so we decided to embrace it and put on our rain boots and raincoats for a fun splish-splashy family photography session…because what kid (and kid-at-heart can resist jumping in puddles?!).

Tyler is one amazing young man. He’s super kind, stylish, and has the biggest smile I’ve ever seen!

One late-August afternoon, I met Tyler and his parents at their home in Forest Lake, MN. After being shown around their BEAUTIFUL house, we decided to go outside and take Tyler’s photo in their backyard. And you can totally see why, right? Their backyard has THE BEST backgrounds! My home and yard envy was pretty serious.

Talori’s St. Anthony Main senior photography session was so magical! We weren’t quite sure if the weather would hold out but thankfully it did and we ended up having a perfect evening!

As a senior at Burnsville High School, Talori is a triple-star athlete. And when I mean she’s a star I mean it! Talori just picked up soccer this year and made the Varsity team. I played soccer back in my youth and believe you me, making Varsity is no small feat (feet? Pun!)

Family kisses at the river at Hidden Falls Regional Park

Kristel and Nick have such an adorable family! Their daughter, Natalie, has the most piercing blue eyes I’ve ever seen and their dog, Cooper, is the sweetest adventurer around.

We met early on a sunny July morning at Hidden Falls Regional Park in St. Paul, MN. I took Kristel and her family to the hidden fall where we snapped several fun photos of them playing together. And yes, the park’s namesake is for this fall…it is so well hidden that I searched for it on 2 separate occasions before our session. Oy!

Working with Lauren was easy breezy and FUN! She gave us our most treasured photos ever!

- GRACE AND NICK

There was a chunk of time in our wedding planning when we thought we'd go without a professional photographer to save on cost (terrible idea!) but once we met with Lauren, we knew we'd be in good hands. She checked in often and asked questions that got us thinking about other parts of the wedding that we probably would've missed. Lauren captured exactly who we are as a couple!

Lauren's enthusiasm and passion make the photo-taking process so fun – she made me feel like a star!

- Alisa AND Adam

Lauren and her team are so much fun to work with! She made us feel so comfortable on the day of our wedding, providing both silly and helpful cues to help us relax and be ourselves in our photos. Lauren’s background in dance is super helpful in recognizing simple posture changes that make a big difference, too. Oh, and the photos we got are just stunning!

Lauren was pivotal in making our wedding day perfect!

- Emma AND Erik

My husband and I looked FOR MONTHS to find the perfect photographer and after meeting Lauren we knew was the best fit for us. She made our day so much fun and easy. She found little opportunities to make the perfect photo all with a  calm ease that comes from someone who has an artistic eye along with experience in understanding the flow of a wedding.

Not only is Lauren an amazing human being, but she is an awesome photographer!

- Haley AND Erick

I've been in several weddings and have worked with a multitude of photographers and I never felt as confident as I did with Lauren. I love how professional she is. She helped with the timeline way in advance and we stuck to that timeline the day of. She was also able to professionally and firmly keep unruly family members settled and focused and navigated family drama beautifully!
