photo challenge: frustrating
September 6, 2015

I’m about two seconds from falling asleep on top of my MacBook, but still wanted to update for today’s challenge: Frustrating. Ah! There are so many frustrating parts to daily life, right? I try {like most} not to focus on them, but oddly enough the recent days have been frustration free. It probably has to […]

photo challenge: vibrant
September 4, 2015

I love rich, jewel toned colors as much as chippy-white, water colored pastels. There’s truly something soulful about deeper tones. When I think of the vibrant colors that tug my heart the most I think of kelly green, autumn leaf gold, and night water turquoise. Gah! I love color. I digress… today’s challenge pointed me […]

photo challenge: shiny & new
September 3, 2015

Little known random fact: I am a child of a small business owner. Big chunks of my childhood were spent at the office store or organizing supplies in the home office. Perhaps this is where my love for office product comes from. I especially love to see simple items gathered together in large quantities. Just […]

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 […]

Robyn and Eason’s beautiful home {for sale!}
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 […]
