As a Minneapolis wedding photographer, it’s always fun to work with my clients for their future photo sessions. An especially big treat is when they contact me to photograph them as their family grows. I was SO excited when Safiyyah + Rory contacted me and wanted me to photograph both their Como Park maternity session AND their Minneapolis newborn session. (I worked with them on their 2014 Aria wedding photography, and we had so much fun!)
First, we worked together in mid-July for their Como Park maternity session. Then, when the adorable Remi made his appearance in mid-August, we met again a few weeks later for their Minneapolis newborn photography at Safiyyah + Rory’s home.
Our session was so much fun! Rory’s mom was visiting from Iowa so she was able to help out around the house and spend lots of quality grandma time with Remi. And Maddox was there mugging for the camera whenever he could get some attention. And of course, Remi did a great job holding it together – napping when we needed some cute sleeping photos, or else snuggling with mom, dad or grandma on cue. We were able to work both in his bedroom as well as, amazingly enough, their dining room with their awesome farm-style wooden table, sheer lacy curtains, and super cool “Ford Family” tub that Remi fit in perfectly!
Holding our Viewing/Ordering session, it was a tough choice to narrow down the images to Safiyyah + Rory’s “best-of-the-best”, but we were finally able to narrow down and create a beautiful newborn/family photo album for them. I am so excited to see it in final form when it is sent to me from Graphistudio in Italy!
Safiyyah + Rory, thank you so much for choosing to work with me on both your Como Park maternity photography as well as your Minneapolis newborn photography. I always love working with you guys. It was a joy to meet little Remi, and I wish you every happiness in your new lives together as a family!
