Timeless Portraits for Modern Families

Not your mama's photo booth

What the heck is a pop up? In a nutshell, we're a mobile studio and we pop up where ever you need us! We're kind of like a photo booth but our photos are seriously gorgeous portraits for the modern family who is looking for timeless imagery.  We know that families are super busy, that's why we've made getting family portraits easy breezy. Our all mini session styled shoots make getting your family photos a snap!

Lollipop Ups go anywhere and everywhere. Grab some friends and take us to the beach, your favorite park, to the city or to your house. Want to fly solo? Meet up with us at one of our Pop Ups for a mini session or attend one of our events for our premium a la carte service. Bonus: all Lollipop Up packages include digital images! Get in, get out, get your images & start printin' & sharin'!

We take the studio to go

Want free stuff?

Say what?! Lollipop Up hosts & hostesses get major perks. Everything from gift credits, to discounts & even free sessions! Host a party with 5 of your friends & your session is fuh-reeee! 

Necessity is the mother of invention & dang! When you become a mother, you realize how true that is, am I right? Lollipop Ups was definitely born out of necessity. We've streamlined the portrait process knowing that time is precious but so are your photos. Capturing & preserving the beautiful bond that makes your family unique is what we live for because we are true family photographers. We love toothy grins & squishy babies & tiny toes & all the joy that comes with being part of a family. This is what you will see when you look at your portraits. Love & joy. The good stuff & nothing less. We might be fast, but we don't miss a thing.

We get you, Mamas. We really do!

We Love WeOrbit and You Will Too

A brand spanking new playspace 2 minutes from my house??? Say wha???? This is not a drill, people. WeOrbit has arrived.


To say I stalked this place is an understatement. I was sooooo excited to find out that my town was getting a playspace. I emailed the owner immediately to find out when the joint was opening. And then I went over there and I got a sneak peek and this place is AMAZING!!!!

Chewy & Delicious: The Baby Niche

Teething sucks. There, I said it. 


Luckily, adorable teethers are easy to find. I'm a big fan of wood and food grade silicone. I like wood because it's natural and safe. And I like silicone because it feels nice and squishy, perfect for soothing sore gums. 

Meet Sprout Kids

Squee! We have our first event on the books! So Downtown Highland Park is ah-dorable!!!! And when bub and I were out and about we happened to see this store that I immediately fell in love with.

In 2016, we welcomed our son Beau to the world with great fanfare. He was teeny and pink and smelled like heaven and every single day, I don't know how, but I love him a little bit more than the day before.
