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.

They drove three hours, from Iowa, for their engagement/family photos. When we had our wedding consultation over video chat I immediately liked Amos and Andrea. It could be that Andrea and I share a love for cats, and books; of the fact that Amos is just about the sweetest guy I’ve ever talked to, but […]

He’s growing fast, but what isn’t changing is how incredibly sweet he is. He is kind, and thoughtful, and such a gentleman already. And he still hugs me… Cheers to more like him!

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 […]

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. I had the privilege of photographing a blogger I follow while she was visiting MN last month, and thought I’d share her 3 looks, showing 3 style trends […]

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 […]

Mom and dad must have done some major bribing prior to our session because these kids were all smiles and cooperation! 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 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…

This is one of my favorite ages to photograph (one year olds). I love all the personality that comes out, love the expressions, love the cute outfits… And love that I get to capture all of these things for my clients! I’ve been playing around with my black and whites, and I think I finally […]

Meet the boy with the longest lashes! He was smiling at me as soon as he got to the studio. I love how fun 1 Year sessions are, and all the personality we get when we just let kids be kids…. I’ve also been playing around with my black and whites, and I think I’m […]
