These two are my Ralph Lauren models! Their mom just has a way of finding the cutest outfits for their sessions, and it’s always from RL! How cute are they???

One of my favorite clients… We always have the best conversations, and she still holds my hand as we walk every year… And to think it all started when she was 6 months old :-)! I loved this location we used this year. We found beautiful Spring blossoms, an awesome green wall, brick… I can’t […]

I was just redetly cleaning my desk and I found the thank you card Jereme and Steph wrote me after I photographed their wedding 6 years ago! I’m SO, so thankful for this family, and so excited they just welcomed Baby C into this world!

These two set the bar really high, and after their session I had to redo my entire Engagement Session Style Guide, because now I want all my couples to add a picnic to their session <3! Oh, and a fresh bouquet of flowers… and if possible, pop some champagne too!

Cheers to Sunset Picnics & Spring Blossoms!

I can’t believe we’re half way into 2019, and my birthday is right around the corner. I’m turning 33, and feeling like I’m top of the world. I love lists, so I decided to make a somewhat aggressive list of 35 items to complete before I turn 35, which gives me about two years. Aggressive […]

We sang together (baby shark being a big hit), walked around, and got some very gorgeous pictures! Little “S” and I share a love for yellow! I couldn’t resist this picture with her yellow […]

I know I must be doing something right when I get clients like Ted and Sam. Our first meeting turned into almost two hours of talking about all the many things we have in common, while sipping on freshly squeezed OJ, and eating pastries. When I decided to get a new website, I wanted it […]

I can’t even with Miss L. She was 6 months the first time I took her pictures, and I’ve seen her every year after that. Her beautiful personality shining through even more with every session. This one might be my favorite so far…

I can’t even with these two… I’m now over here updating my Engagement Session Style Guide because of how obsessed I am with their pictures! And Molly even made this gorgeous bouquet of flowers herself! We walked around chasing that perfect evening glow, and the results were sun-kissed gorgeousness! Stay tuned for part two of […]

Iceland is truly a magical place. We landed after a six hour flight from Minneapolis, at 6:30am local time. Some car rentals have offices inside the airport, while others, like the one we booked our car with, is a short shuttle ride away. We rented a small car for our 3 days in Iceland so […]
