These two love birds met when Callie was a sophomore, and Adam was a senior. He started his career in the Army after graduating and had to move, so a lot of their relationship has been long distance. He came back from deployment just in time for their engagement session! A&C are pretty much polar […]

What a decade it has been. Besides the cliche “finding myself,” which I did, I have to say I learned so much about love. From a toxic five year relationship that ended very badly, to meeting and marrying my dream guy. Here’s what a learned about love in a decade.  1. Love yourself first: what you […]

Nathan and Precious got married on November 2, 2019. And that day was not picked randomly. They wanted to share their wedding date, with the Day of the Dead (dia de los muertos). Nathan lost his sister, brother, and father, and this was one way to remember them on their special day. Precious left me […]

You think that umbrella was just a prop? Nope, it was raining during our ENTIRE session! The weather here is so unpredictable, I keep an umbrella in my car at all times! We probably could have rescheduled, BUT, this gorgeous bride-to-be had already gotten her hair and makeup done, and her nails too, so I […]

Sam and Sarah were together for ten years before they got married. Ten years, that led to one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever photographed. Any of Sarah’s friends could tell you something she does not lack is style, and all the details on the wedding day were spot on. The day started at […]

Minneapolis Family Photos with the Mosiers! One of the reasons I LOVE September and October so much is that I can get to see so many of the families that have been with me since I started my photography business journey! The Mosier family became my clients when I still worked in corporate, and it’s […]

I get asked all the time about locations with tall grass, so here’s one of my favorite spots! I just love how the light hits it around sunset, and it’s also close to some other cute spots, so you get a variety on your photos! I absolutely ADORE Matt and Kara! This is my second […]

I can’t even with how beautiful these girls are! They drove a long ways from South Dakota to have their baby session with me! Little Ayven did so well for her first professional photo shoot! Sessions like this give me serious baby fever, and holding Ayven was the best part of the session for me! […]

It’s FALL!!! I actually really like all seasons, and every time a new season starts, I’m like “yep! this is my favorite!” haha! In all honesty, I think Spring and Summer are my all time fave. I just can’t get enough of the Spring blossoms, and there’s something magical about Summer. BUT, Fall is definitely […]
