I met Rachel at the end of 2019, and I knew we were destined to work together. Our coffee date felt like old friends meeting, and with her impeccable style and taste-I had a feeling her and Ben’s wedding day would be beautiful. Welp, I was dead wrong because beautiful isn’t a strong enough word […]

August 9th was one of my first weddings of 2020-and it was beautiful. Like most 2020 couples, Maria + Jake were amazing and had such great attitudes as they were forced to make major changes and shifts to their day. The vendors they teamed up with put together such a beautiful day, that was complimented […]

It’s hard to know where to begin when reflecting back on 2020…it goes without saying it was a hard year, but I also want to be able to reflect on the positive impact from all the changes it brought. While a lot of people made the shift to working from home, I honestly felt like […]

We started at their beautiful home out in Hanover, and ventured through the small town downtown, stopped for a delicious beverage, and finished at their beautiful church. It was hot, and it was humid-but these two were amazing troopers and still cozied up to each other despite the heat. Summer sessions are just my favorite, […]

Fun fact, I started at Bethel as an art major. But alas, I learned early on that photography was the route I wanted to take, and was actually pretty horrible at drawing, painting, graphic design-aka-anything besides taking photos. SO! I made it my minor and switched to communication, but the whole point of my undergraduate […]

The weather in Minnesota this summer has been nothing short of sunny, beautiful and hot, and my night with Amanda + Ian was absolutely perfect. What Minnesota summer dreams are made of, and we had such a great time making our way around the lake…capturing these two together. These two have such amazing chemistry, and […]

Sweet little Charlotte was the last newborn session I did before all the craziness of Covid-19 and the words “social distancing” and “shelter-in-place” really began. I miss these moments of photographing first time parents as they can’t get enough of their little bundle of sweetness, and snuggle them tight. Charlotte was the most content and […]

Each year, I get to photograph new and growing families, and it is the best thing ever. Sweet little Hazel is about to become a big sister, and I was so happy to capture some of the last moments Renee and Brian have with her before baby number two joins the party. If the new […]

I never tire of newborn sessions-can you tell?? Moments like these-especially in times like these, when we take a few minutes to pause, reflect, and soak in the time we have together as families are something to be cherished. The gift of new life is especially precious during this time, and I will never take […]

June 29 may have been one of the hottest days of the summer, but Katherine + Stuart made it through flawlessly-and of course, with a side of air-conditioning. The two were married at the beautiful Basilica in downtown Minneapolis, and their reception took place at the stunning venue of Woodhill Country Club. It was such […]

Safe to say the biggest cure for winter doldrums is taking photos of fresh babies-especially when that baby belongs to one of your close friends. Briggs has stolen all of our hearts, and has officially set the bar high for definition of cute baby. Spending the morning with Chels and Jon, and seeing them look […]

One of my favorite things about my jobs are the people I meet, the connections I make, and the places it brings me. I met Kristen + Steve through Steve’s brother and sister-in-law at their wedding a few years back, and was thrilled when they asked me to come to Chicago and capture their beautiful […]
