The Karuzas are literally one of the most beautiful families I’ve ever met. And Ashley should be a home designer, with how gorgeous she’s decorated every room of their house. This lifestyle newborn session was an absolute dream!
OH MY GOODNESS – will you please just appreciate the perfection of this girl’s cheeks?! I literally could not get over how beautiful Emma is, and she was such a happy baby during the entire photo session! Her parents got an absolute gem with this child. Dream baby!
Having celebrated their engagement, wedding and first baby with them, I was absolutely thrilled to be invited to capture Aaron & Brenna’s first few days with the newest addition to the sweet Fox family. He’s got a lot of cuteness to live up to in following his adorable big sister, that’s for sure!!
Two beautiful people are expecting a beautiful baby; we headed over to Tennant Lake on a perfectly romantic cloudy day to play around and capture the joy that’s on the way!

I am so happy that another adorable baby Fox on the way! First of all, just look at this little cherub – her brother is going to have some serious cuteness to measure up to. Secondly, Aaron and Brenna are two of the sweetest, most loving parents and I love watching them build such a…
Adding a second child takes your lives up more than one notch! I love capturing the first few weeks of the blur of chaos, exhaustion, love and excitement of the second or third arrival. Getting into your home with a lifestyle newborn session lets me capture emotions as they show up in your everyday lives….
There’s really nothing like a good woodsy, forest-lovely maternity session to welcome a new little adventurer!
This gorgeous family is adding one more rambunctious ball of joy soon, and we caught the perfect last light of the day for their maternity photos at Tennant Lake on the backside of Hovander Park.
