If you're new, welcome!! *big hugs* If you've been a couple times, welcome back! *even bigger hugs*

I'm a Twin Cities Family + Senior Portrait photographer who loves photographing families and teens that remind her of her own family.

I fell in love with photography a long time ago, and never have stopped taking pictures since. I've always taken pictures of my kiddos when they were babies and even now, as they are growing up capturing these moments in their life; even though they try to hide from me.






Hey friend!

Was starting a small business easy? Heck no. There are days where I wanted to rip my hair out and quit. But, like what  Dory said, just kept swimming. 

I love clients who are just as nerdy and joyful as me, if not more. Love Doctor Who and British TV shows? I'm your gal. 

I don't take this for granted, I am truly  honored to spend your precious time with you and your family to capture these moments.  They are genuinely limited and they need to be cherished. 

I built my business from a little entry-level camera and self-taught from You-Tube videos, free photography courses and making a ton of mistakes along the way. All the while raising and educating 3 young kids.  

I grew up in a small town in southern Minnesota, the home of Schells Brewery and Herman the German. After high school I went to Minnesota State University for my undergrad in management and also to find my future hubs. HAH! Seriously though, that's where I found him.  Walking through the dorms with my friend harassing the computer science majors after visiting the c-store in our dorm complex. 

We were married in 2007 by the pastor who baptized me when I lived in Alaska ( how crazy is that??). We have 3 very energetic, silly, and smart boys whose age range goes from a high schooler all the way down to elementary age - side fun fact, they are all 4 years and 4 months apart...definitely not planned.  In addition to being a small business owner, I have been homeschooling my boys for going on 11 years now. 

I'm a homebody to the core, but also likes to travel ( when's the next flight to London?). I am an ISFJ and Enneagram 9W1, who loves 90s music - I claim to be a mix of Gen X'er and Millennial, bonfires, thunderstorms, reading, Harry Potter, and sunshine.
