my one little word for 2017 and a free gift for you
January 3, 2017

For the past several years I have chosen a one-little-word for the year. I’m a big list person, but resolutions are a bit daunting and I’ve found that focusing on something small– like one word, results in a more profound experience for me. Past year’s words have been: Authenticity Listen Be Still AgreeĀ  Almost always […]

365 for 2017 | A Monthly Photo Challenge
January 1, 2017

Courtney and I decided we needed something fun to start out the New Year! We’ve created a monthly challenge. I have been so challenged by photography prompts throughout the years and am so excited about January’s list. Each quarter we’ll select a favorite shot and send out a small gift, so be sure to play […]

twenty-nine self portraits
January 1, 2017

Over the past twelve months I’ve taken 29 self-portraits over the duration of my 29th year of life. Each year I like to choose a personal photography project and it just so happens that birthday is very close to New Year’s. In years past I’ve completed 365 daily photo prompts, monthly Instagram challenges, and various, […]

Christmas Eve Dinner
December 26, 2016

Dad really out did himself this year with Christmas Eve dinner. After mass we headed over to his place to cook up a divine feast. I am still thinking about the rice. I’m not ashamed to say that rice is my favorite food. I used to eat boxes of white rice in college with soy […]

Christmas Eve at The Basilica
December 26, 2016

Nearly every Christmas Eve I attend church with my dad at his parish, The Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis. It is so lovely and always puts me in the Christmas spirit. This year the church was decorated simply with tall evergreen trees and there’s always candles, of course. I love that The Basilica is […]

silver bells
December 26, 2016

“Silver Bells” has long been one of my most favorite Christmas songs. I love the classic simplicity of it and it reminds me of all the wonderful Christmas seasons I’ve spent in my beautiful metro area. This year was my second Christmas living in St.Paul and I finally got a chance to do the nighttime […]

celebrating turning thirty
December 12, 2016

It feels surreal but I turn thirty at the end of the month. I’ll be honest that I’ve been dreading this birthday for nearly five years, and more intensely the past two years. I loved being twenty-seven, it was my golden birthday and that year was pretty good. While thirty makes me an “official” adult […]

well hello there, winter.
December 8, 2016

The first snow of the winter fell beautifully a few weeks ago and I’m just now getting around to sharing a few of my favorite photos from that day. I am so looking forward to the holiday season. This has been a fantastic fall for me business wise and I’m really excited about a few […]

December 4, 2016

Last year I got to snap some fun Christmas photos of little H and this year we did them in the studio. I ended up setting up my new, twin Jenny Lind bed {thank you Amanda Rydell!} and white Christmas tree {I have a pink one in my home this year}. Now, have you ever […]
