Chauncy & Tricia // Northeast Minneapolis Brewery Engagement by ASHLEY GROTH

I always encourage my couples to think about places that are near and dear to them to incorporate into their engagement session. AND I was elated that Chauncy and Tricia wanted to include on of their favorite spots for local brew - Indeed Brewing in Northeast Minneapolis. It might've been the first freezing day in Minneapolis in November (and also foreshadowed their 0* wedding day come January!) but we pulled it off. Nothing that a couple of beers and shuffleboard cant fix ;)

Dustin & Stacey // Minneapolis Engagement Session by ASHLEY GROTH

I was introduced to Stacey through her mom, outside of Stearns Hall, SCSU on freshman move in day. Her mom thought we'd be great friends - and to this day I am so happy Mrs E said something. Stacey is one of a kind; we can go years without seeing each other only to have to hours long coffee catch up dates and laugh the entire time. Stacey is engaging, genuine, and naturally hilarious - and all of my favorite shenanigans freshman year of college involve her. Dustin is just the same - only add an infectious smile that literally lights up anyone he is around - including me during their engagement session. Non stop laughs from the two people with the biggest smiles around!

I can't wait for September!

Summer Backyard Pizza Party // Minneapolis Family Photographer by ASHLEY GROTH

Sigh, sweet Minneapolis summers - they are to die for. As much as I love fall (the colors, the scarves, everything pumpkin spice), summer feels like a giant warm hug, all the time. And its perfect for playing and eating and relaxing on a hammock - bonus if you can do all three in your own backyard!

Thank you P family for always being game for me following you around with my camera, and fueling me with pizza! It was as delicious as those late summer nights.

 

Baby E // Minneapolis Newborn Lifesyle Photography by ASHLEY GROTH

Squishy soft skin. Wide eyes. Baby dinosaur noises. Give me all of it!

I finally got to appease my itch for ooh-ing and aww-ing over a cuddly newborn babe when Jessi & John's sweet peach Everly made her debut in September. I absolutely love in-home lifestyle sessions, especially with a newborn in the house. There is no pressure--just you and your new normal, snuggling and putting your feet up as I capture it all. The tender moments, the diaper changes, the shushing and swaying as your get your little one to close their eyes. These images will be so fun to look back on, you might not remember those sleepless nights ; )

Thank you to J & J for inviting me (or me pushing my way!) into your home <3
