photo challenge: peculiar
September 2, 2015

Well, I used to think that I hated chalk. I couldn’t write well with it, and well– it frustrated me. I saw beautifully chalked boards in people’s homes and used to gaze with envy. If only I could learn how to chalk better! Then I recalled chalk pencils, I started using those instead and found […]

photo challenge: joy-inducing
September 1, 2015

It’s the first day of this month’s challenge. I’m so excited to see what everyone comes up with. I love shooting in the morning and that’s exactly what I did. I snapped today’s image around 830am, shortly before I left for work on my parent’s dreamy patio. We don’t have many warm mornings left! When […]

chintz petit during golden hour
August 31, 2015

Did you know I run a second, small business? It’s called Chintz Petit. I design and sew onesie dresses and skinny ties from vintage linens. I love working with my hands, anything vintage, and of course, babies! Since the weather has been so very lovely lately, and unusually reasonable for August in Minnesota, I decided […]

September photo challenge
August 30, 2015

I have long dreamed of hosting a photo challenge of my own. I’ve participated in a handful challenges over the past two years and each has been a positive experience. Some of my favorite, independent work has been as a result of getting outside of my box and having an assignment to complete each day. […]

curated session: the B family in the park
August 24, 2015

When I decided to restructure the way I do sessions I wanted to include the use of beautiful, often vintage props. I think when done tastefully and with careful editing they can result in magical, wymsical images. When I imagine the type of sessions I would like to create for myself and future family I […]

August 21, 2015

My fantastic friends Robyn and Eason are selling their dreamy, lake Minnetonka side home in Woodland, MN. I am both excited and sad for this big change in their lives. I remember when they purchased this home a few years ago and all the beautiful memories I’ve shared with them in it: on the porch […]

sweet baby I
August 17, 2015

Thursday I had the pleasure of photographing one of my favorite church families. Sarah was one of the first people to introduce herself to me at Calvary and I have loved getting to know her sweet family. Naturally I was excited to capture their third daughter’s newborn session at home. They are the best kind […]

Ladies at Loveless
August 14, 2015

For the second year in a row now I’d had the opportunity to visit a friend’s cabin up on Loveless Lake right over the border in western Wisconsin. It’s a beautiful place layered with lots of history, the original cabin structure dates to the 1930s! Kate graciously hosted several of us from my beloved “Ladies […]

photo journalistic session: welcome baby H
August 10, 2015

Courtney and Chris are some of my dearest friends, so I was delighted to learn that they were expecting at the end of last summer. Courtney blurted it out at a morning coffee date and it has truly been a joy watching her become a mom. I love this family! I was hoping to be […]

photo challenge: june 2015
July 12, 2015

I had so much fun completing a June photo challenge. Like I’ve said before these are always helpful for me in regards to both getting me out of my box creatively and just learning while playing around. Challenges allow me to see my life from a different perspective and experiment with photography. Miracle of miracles […]
