a Minnesota newborn
and family photographer
based in New Brighton

a bright + fun photo experience

You'd love to fill your walls or social media with beautiful and heartwarming images of your family (and actually be IN the photos looking pretty, right?) But you're so busy. And who needs more stress in their life?? I'm here to embrace your so-called chaos and alleviate any overwhelming worries you may feel about having your newborn tiny baby, children or the entire family photographed. Growing up as the oldest of 5 kids, I know what a stressful family photo session can look like. But I also know the priceless value of documenting every chapter of your child's life- from the day they're born to the day they give you grandchildren, and beyond. I will help you, at every step, preserve your family memories forever.

my name is Savannah

family fun


newborn + maternity

After setting you up in beautiful natural light, my main goal is real connection and genuine emotion. You'll notice I like to photograph a mix of both traditional (everyone looking at the camera) and lifestyle (in-motion photos that have a more candid feel) portraits. I work really hard to ensure that the smiles are real and that everyone, including your husband, is enjoying themselves.

I won't tell you to smile –
I'll give you a reason to.

No cheesy
     smiles here!

Savannah is an excellent photographer with a very special gift...

"Savannah is an excellent photographer with a very special gift to get the best from all of us during the short amount of time we are together... I'm always amazed at what she captures from our family shoot. I'm not sure how she does it. Her photos are incredible year after year - the way she uses the surroundings and natural light around us continues to amaze me. Beyond that, Savannah is professional, optimistic, energetic and has such a warm presence that my son takes no time to warm up to her which puts me at ease instantly so I don't stress. I know these are memories we will always cherish!! Highly recommend!"


Savannah did a wonderful job of putting us all at ease...

"Savannah did a wonderful job of putting us all at ease during the photo session. I just love the photos and feel like Savannah captured our family's personality so well. After our session all three of the guys in my family said that it went way better than they expected and that it was easy and fun. As a mom scheduling family photos with two teenagers I couldn't have been more happy to hear that :)"


She is so professional, kind and patient...

"Savannah is INCREDIBLE. We hired her for our maternity photos and newborn photos and were blown away. She is so professional, kind and patient which put this new mama at ease. We received the photos so quickly and they couldn't be more beautiful. She made scheduling easy and coordinated with our schedule. We were even late because our daughter needed to eat and she patiently waited for us and went with the flow. I can't say enough amazing things about our experience and highly recommend her services. You won't be disappointed!"
