What I love most about newborn sessions is the simplicity. In all honesty…when I first started newborn sessions a few years ago, they used to scare me…and now, they are ones I look forward to the most. There’s something so sweet about capturing the first few days when the babe is so little that I […]

The first time I met Amy + Josh was in Chicago for their engagement session. It just so happened to work out perfectly, as my sister lives in the city, and we were able to connect and take photos in the city they live. Then last month, we switched up cities as they tied the […]

I think in home maternity sessions might be my new favorite thing…especially in beautiful condo’s in the North Loop 😉 Mattea + Tony invited me into their home a few weekends back, and it was such a sweet time of conversation as they prepare to be parents for the first time, as well as taking […]

I think it’s safe to say this year has been my fullest year of families to date.

There are hardly words to be able to full describe what experiencing Taylor + Ryan’s wedding was like. Taylor is technically my cousin-but she’s so much more than that. We grew up down the road from each other and were 5 months apart…needless to say-we were best friends and experienced so much of life together. […]

It was one of those wedding days where rain was in the forecast at about a 99% chance, so we bought umbrellas and mentally prepared for a downpour. But if you’re a true Minnesotan, you know nothing is ever for SURE, and often times, the forecast is usually opposite the day of. Which means, you […]

August 18, 2018 was the most popular day this year to get married, and I might be biased, but I think I got the best wedding of them all. Kate and Connor invited me up to her grandmother’s lake home on Woman Lake in Longville, MN. It has been their place of summer getaways since […]

Sarah and I first met on our freshman year, where we lived on the same floor. Fast forward 12 years later when Sarah and I are meeting for coffee, chatting about how her and Scott fell in love, and planning their wedding day together!! THEN she suggested doing their engagement photos at the state fair, […]

There is nothin’ like the summer sun, and Kelsey + Mike couldn’t have gotten the perfect night for their photos down in St. Anthony Main! What I love about sessions is the time we get to hang out and chat, and sneak in some photos in between it all 🙂 Kelsey + Mike are such a […]

June was an amazing month with amazing couples and amazing weddings. From the moment I met Melissa + David, we just clicked. Our “meetings” weren’t meetings, and their engagement session and wedding felt like old friends hangin out, and I LOVED THAT. Being part of their day, and chosen as their photographer was such an […]

It was the first perfect day of summer, and it just so happened to be Jenny + Travis’ wedding day. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky, and for all the snow we got in April, the fact that there was no snow in sight was a complete and total miracle. These two tied the […]

It is always such an incredible honor when to team up with some of Minneapolis’ finest vendors. Ashley Fox reached out to photograph her bouquet demonstration put on by Twin Cities Floral Exchange, and I was ecstatic. With the combination of The White Room, Peter Phung, Heather Trachsel and Alyssa McGaughey…the results were quite amazing, […]
