The D Family at home | A Photojournalistic Session
March 23, 2018

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Amanda for a long time. During college, she and I used to work together at a daycare center. I was always so in awe of her amazing tattoos and then later, her gorgeous family! Recently she and her family decided to move houses and wanted to capture a few […]

sweet V turns one
August 17, 2017

I love capturing first birthday parties, and always jump at an opportunity to photograph one. Amber is a new neighborhood friend of mine and we finally had the chance to meet “in person” at her darling daughter’s party. I love internet friends turned real life friends #milleniallife. This party was pretty special because it was […]

Jessie by the river
August 15, 2017

I met Jessie a few years ago through CrossFit. She is such a wonderful, beautiful person inside and out. Jessie reached out earlier this summer wanting some updated portraits. I don’t really supply head shots, but I do love simple, outdoor portraits and branding sessions. Jessie’s were a little of both. Of course we shot […]

Modern Map Art | Dining Room Refresh
August 9, 2017

Earlier this summer I got an email from Jennifer over at Modern Map Art. She wondered if I might be interested in receiving a few print for my home. Of course I said “yes!” I’ve been wanting to update my dining space for a while now, and this was the perfect opportunity as well as the […]

Courtney’s Maternity Session, at the bodega

Sometimes a photography dream gets to come true: like this one, shooting a simple maternity session at a little bodega. I’ve visited this place a few times and fell in love with its color walls, rows of rainbow sodas, and the friendly staff. They have a little bakery case up front and a box of […]

a Sunday morning with the P family
January 25, 2017

When Daci e-mailed me about booking a wintery photojournalistic session I got so excited. Photojournalistic sessions are pure lifestyle, and tell the story of who you really are– your routines, your favorite places, and your favorite people. We started at a local coffee shop, I love reading Daci’s blog and knowing what she’s discovered. I’m […]

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 […]

Christmas Decor 2016
December 8, 2016

I loved this year’s Christmas decor. Many items I already had, and instead of using my white tree I took that one and set it up in the studio and had a pink tree for home. I love it in all it’s gaudy, tacky glory! {A close up of my favorite ornament, that ballerina hippo– […]

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 […]
