Hi there! Welcome to the PMP blog, a journal about my work, life, travels, fashion, and the occasional dessert. Stay a while and say hello!

Hi, I'm poly.

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 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 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 […]

Being the foodie that I am, I was thrilled that my clients (in Australia) also shared the same love for fresh, high quality, and “pretty” foods. We drove a couple of hours from Brisbane, to Mooloolaba, for photos at the beach, but our very first stop when we got there was The Velo Project, a […]

I still remember the day I got proposed to like it was yesterday! We were hiking in Arizona, the weather a killer 104 degrees… I felt over and over like I was going to faint. But, it was all worth it once he dropped to one knee and made me the happiest girl ever! Looking […]

My very first session with these two, in Brisbane Australia! Sheena had swore to me it would be a hard task to get good pictures of her. Imagine my eye rolls when she got in front on my camera and absolutely #nailed every single shot? I couldn’t get a single bad shot of her. She […]

Absolutely dying over these gorgeous images from my last trip to Phoenix. This location is less than 2 miles from our house there, and it’s about the prettiest place ever! If you know anyone in Phoenix looking for a photographer, definitely send my way! I attended a workshop on Sunday, with Chard Photography, and it […]

This was, by far, the longest way I’ve gone for an engagement session. Over 20 hours, lots of movies in the plane, lots of snacks, little sleep, but I made it to a place I’ve always wanted to go to, Australia! I met Sheena and Sebastian in Minnesota when they reached out about having me […]

The Brazilian in me is realizing it’s worth the cold to get images like these… The winter wonderland brings beautiful, diffused lighting, and since I love pops of color, there’s nothing like all the snow to make the pops of color pop even more! John and Molly are simply the best, and from the moment […]

It’s day 326 of extreme cold, and a gazillion inches of snow, in Minnesota… So I’ve been really loving these in-home sessions. I photographed P+K’s wedding last August, and love how they’ve incorporated their wedding photos in their home decor. In the living room they have 9 framed pictures (you can get these beautiful frames […]
