My Photography Style

Vibrant, natural + genuine. I love shooting outdoors using natural light, greenery, and blooms! I’ll teach you how to pose so that you feel confident (+ look photogenic!), but I promise you won’t feel over-posed, stiff or fake!

Working with Me

Whether I am photographing your Christmas card photos or your wedding day, my goal is to set your mind at ease + be a calming presence so that you can be present and let your hair down! Several brides have commented that I was a very calming presence on their wedding day (which makes me so happy to hear!) I am able to be assertive and keep the schedule on track when needed, while also staying light-hearted and calm to help you relax! I pride myself on being a professional, but I also don’t take myself too seriously - I promise to be myself (quirks and all!) so that you feel free to be yourself, too! Authenticity is way more fun (AND makes for way better photos!!)

Your Session

A photo session is a treat! Couples, think of it like a date night away from wedding planning. Families, this is a time to take a break from your busy schedules to just BE together, hug, laugh, play! My goal is to give you a relaxing and enjoyable experience that will create beautiful, genuine images you will treasure for life. You can choose between 30-90 minutes for you session, outdoors (my forte) or indoors at a rented studio (because MN winters are long). You are always free to choose a location that you love or is meaningful to you, otherwise I am happy to make recommendations! I am happy to travel all over the Twin Cities (&beyond!)

Nervous? Don’t be!

Literally no one thinks they are photogenic or feels 100% confident in front of the camera (even me!). I don’t expect you to be a model - promise! My goal is to help you feel comfortable and confident so that your images capture real expressions, hugs, giggles and kisses! I will teach you the basics of posing so that you look photogenic as you interact. The best thing you can do for great photos is be willing to laugh, interact, be affectionate, and help each other laugh and smile!

Family

I love to photograph the love and connection between families. Whether you need Christmas card photos or simply want to document your children as they grow, I would be honored to be your photographer! I promise to make you laugh, help you look and feel your best, and deliver you photos that you will treasure for a lifetime.

Head Shots

Head shots usually have the connotation of being boring, stuffy, or simply not a good representation of YOU. I love to change that story and instead deliver you head shots that look like you - photos you are excited to share on your website, business cards or LinkedIn profile.

Maternity + Newborn

Maternity and newborn photos can be described in one word: wonder. This is a brand new time in your life full of excitement, change and new life. These moments don't last forever and they are worth documenting!
