Minneapolis Family Photographer

"Family is not an important thing...It's everything." - Michael J. Fox

No truer words were ever spoken.  Your kids are your world and Heaven knows that changes in a blink of an eye, they grow up way too fast.  Your most valuable family possessions are the shared experiences and memories that link your hearts together. Capturing these precious memories is my passion.  

I offer two different family sessions. Posed and Lifestyle.  For my posed sessions, I like to take a healthy variety of different kinds of pictures. I set up both poses and capture candids of each child alone, different sibling pairings and pictures of children and parents together.  I have several locations I tend to use often, including Elk River, Otsego, Rogers, Champlin, and many more. Otherwise, if you have a place in mind that you have your heart set on, we can try that too!

New for 2018 are my Family Lifestyle Sessions. These sessions last anywhere from 2-2.5 hours and can include numerous activities..your family playing a favorite board game, cooking a favorite recipe, enjoying a meal together, snuggling on the couch or in bed to read a book, jumping on the bed, playing outside on the swing set..any of the above. I basically give few instructions and sit back like a fly on the wall and take candid photos of your family just being you.  


“Sheila did our family photos and they turned out better than I ever could have hoped for, and we had fun doing them. She really did a great job capturing my boys, ages 1 and 2.5 years, which is the most difficult task. I highly recommend her! She is amazing at photography!”
