One of my favorite families on the blog today! Making it an even happier Friday! These girls put a smile on my face every time I see them! I’ve been working with them since the girls were 2 and 3 (I believe), and we’ve always had this tradition of doing this photo with the girls […]

We walked around Minneapolis and I shot mostly using my live view because these two are TALL, model looking, gorgeous couple… I love this area in Minneapolis, and challenge myself to choose different spots every time I go there, to give each client a unique experience, and unique photos! These two were SO fun, and […]

A year and a half ago RJ (my husband) got offered a really good position in Phoenix. After talking about it we decided it was a good opportunity for him, and so he moved away from me. The position only required a two year commitment, so we knew it wouldn’t be permanent. After a few […]

If you follow me on Instagram you probably already know I have a healthy obsession interest in all things fashion. I love watching trends, and love shopping.

It’s interesting how dreams and plans change over time. I remember trying to figure out what I wanted to go to college for. I had my hopes set on being a personal trainer, but my dad kept telling me to do something with Business. About a week before classes started I switched to Business, and […]

I can’t even with this beautiful baby girl I got to photograph this week at my studio! And I finally got the peony decals on the wall, looks so fun! Baby Ivy was a dream to work with. Probably the first baby ever to not cry at all. And she slept pretty much the entire […]

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!
