Photography has been a passion of mine since I can remember, and seeing my passion turn into fruition over the last couple of years has truly been an exciting adventure. It’s such an honor to be part of incredibly special days, moments, families and relationships in such a unique way. I am blown away by the couples and families I get to work with, and consider it an incredible blessing whenever new opportunities and experiences enter my inbox. I want to give you the best, and deliver to you a beautiful way for you to remember your most cherished memories and moments.

As a Minneapolis-based Wedding and Lifestyle photographer, most of my time is spent in the cities and up north. Living in Roseville gives me such great opportunities to shoot in beautiful locations both in Minneapolis and St. Paul, and love exploring new spots!! I would love to be part of your wedding day and beyond, and look forward to hearing from you soon!

Engagement sessions are typically an hour long! Together, we choose a location that works best, and suits you the most as a couple!

How long are newborn sessions?

I don’t typically put a time frame on newborn sessions, but they usually fall in between the timeframe of 1-2 hours!! I just want you to feel relaxed and know that if we need to take any breaks to let the baby eat or cry it out, that’s normal!

Do you ever offer mini sessions?

Yes! I try to offer them several times a year. Once in the fall and twice in the spring/summer! Make sure you join my email list so you get all the information right away and ahead of the general population!!

Will you help with poses?

Duh! I know firsthand being in front of the camera can be uncomfortable-especially when all eyes (and lenses) are on you! My goal is to make you feel as comfortable and natural as possible, and to create poses that stem from natural interactions with one another. And trust me, you’re more a natural than you think!

Can I share my pose ideas with you?

Of course! Pinterest is such a great way to share thoughts, and to get to know what inspires you. We do the best to bring that to life in your photos, and make it even more personal to you!

What should I wear?

Ultimately-you being comfortable is the most important factor. Think about what you wear on a day to day basis, and enhance it a bit to make your photo session special. I love photographing neutral colors-creams, whites, muted tones, subtle patterns, and earth tones photograph beautifully. Often times, I would recommend avoiding too much pattern, everyone in the same color, or too many dark colors. But again, I want you to feel comfortable in what you wear, and feel like your best self!

Do you serve businesses?

Yes! I do! Headshots and lifestyle shots for small businesses or individuals are on my list of favorite things. Whether you’re looking for a simple headshot, or an entire branding shoot-getting you photos that you feel best represents you and your business is my ultimate goal!  

Do you have a studio space?

I do not have a personal studio space, but there are so many beautiful spaces around Minneapolis we can rent for an additional fee that I love shooting in! If we’re not in a studio, there are so many beautiful parks around the city that I love to shoot at!

Briggs Altena

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 the definition of cute baby. Spending the morning with Chels and Jon, and seeing them look at their baby boy, an answer to prayer-filled me up so much.
