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 […]

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 […]

Mara’s maternity session
October 21, 2016

Mara is one of my dearest friends. I love her so much, and I lucky that we get to collaborate from time to time and share our studio space. She and her husband plus big brother Carter are welcoming a baby girl at the end of this fall. I am thrilled for them. We met […]

summer bucket list: pick strawberries
August 18, 2016

I picked berries… on the last day that strawberries could be picked. And… I canned homemade strawberry jam that I’ve already give as gifts to family and friends. It’s perfect atop cheese and crackers The farm we chose, Berry Hill Farm, is just a bit north of me in Anoka and positively adorable. They have […]

A few weeks ago my friend Kathy and I embarked on a walk around my neighborhood. Several months earlier I’d noticed another local photographer’s posts about a beach under the Ford Bridge. I was so interested– it looks like a gorgeous place rich with photo opportunities. On our walk Kathy showed me how to find […]

I finished up my Orchard Petit Sessions yesterday with a final, wonderful session with some church friends at Aamodt’s Apple Farm. In a fun twist of events my mom joined me and we made plans for a lunch and shopping trip in nearby Stillwater. I’ve been antiquing in Stillwater with my mom for years– it […]

In Joy Mint Studio’s grand opening!
May 3, 2016

I can’t believe the studio has been open now for a few weeks! Mara and I have each shot in there since then and it’s surreal to know that the space is up and running. The studio had really great bones and a gorgeous, exposed brick portion, but it also needed new paint, the carpet […]

brand session: The Vintage Studio
February 23, 2016

There’s a big part of me that just adores shooting product. I have a big time crush on brand shoots and hope to do more of them in the future. When Jennifer over at The Vintage Studio reached out of Instagram about doing some photography for her shop I said “yes!” I spent a blindingly […]

Petit Christmas Sessions
December 15, 2015

I had such a fun time shooting Petit Christmas Sessions! They were truly a joy to do. Mara and I spent a significant amount of time creating the scenes and getting all the props and details for what we wanted. It was serious work, but also serious fun. In part I think why it all […]

best thrifting day
September 7, 2015

My friend Maggie invited me to thrift this morning bright and early. I couldn’t wait. I had my iced coffee and mental list. With thrifting sometimes you have good days, other times not so much. As I’ve changed the way I organize sessions I’m in search of a few key vintage inspired props. I’m still […]
