Mamma Mia | Chisago City, MN Family Photographer

I need to get you up to speed on a little peanut session from February! (Better late than never!) A very dear friend is a first time mommy! Introducing, the beautiful Miss Mia!

I don't get to photograph many baby sessions any more, so it was a wonderful treat to be able to take some pics of Mia in more of a lifestyle type setting (which I love!), along with brand new parents - Lisa and John at their brand new GORGEOUS home in Chisago City, Minnesota. The decor, the flooring, everything in their home was to die for! (I tease Lisa in saying she can come and redecorate my house any time!)

Lisa & John moved here from Arizona. Lisa grew up here in Minnesota (I've known her since jr. high...she is known as "Nitti" in our hometown because of her maiden name.) - so she is "back home" now. It was super exciting for me, because I helped Lisa and John with their initial "expecting" announcement to post on social media by taking some cute photos of Christmas stockings in fall of 2015. Check it out below!

Mia arrived a few weeks early, but she was still just as cute as a button when I saw her at close to 9 weeks young. She also has some very protective big-yet small-sisters who watch over her.

The "big" sister puppy dogs!

As I mentioned, they have an amazing new home, and it made for the most perfect setting to take some natural lifestyle photos. Check out the slide show below!

I am so grateful for the opportunity to capture some of these most precious times with your new baby girl. Thank you, Lisa, for being an awesome friend to me. I am forever in debt to you and so appreciate your kindness. It was my pleasure to capture beautiful images of little Mia. She is a doll!
