The Everyday Beauty Workshop

It has taken me a long time to recognize myself as a photographer. For some reason, I initially thought that to be a "photographer" you had to take clients and the only pictures that mattered were the ones you took of strangers' weddings. Now, I love taking others' pictures and helping them celebrate their individual families!!! I have literally cried on my way home from sessions from the pure joy of it! But to start my personal photography journey there felt like…

Babies

There really is the sweetest feeling that surrounds newborns. I was able to capture some images last fall for a couple of my favorite mamas. While lifestyle images will always be my favorite, who can resist a portrait of a perfect, tiny human?! First up we have Baby J. This handsome little man is a big boy with the cutest eyebrows I've ever seen! I didn't even know eyebrows could be cute! The images of him sleeping on his mama's shoulder…

Beautiful Minnesota Fall Family Session

The colors were at their peak. The weather was holding out for a couple more sunshiny fall days before the winter temperatures blew in. Absolutely everything fell in place for this beautiful fall family session. We had a blast looking at leaves, sitting on logs, playing with sticks under the trees, and just genuinely enjoying each other. What I love most about this particular session is just how much joy and love you can see on each face as this family…

Family Session with Twin Toddlers!

I had so much fun with this amazing couple and their darling twin 18 month old boys! After moving to Minneapolis over the summer, I could not have asked for more perfect first clients to jump start my Minnesota experience! If you're curious about what a session with 18 month old twins looks like, it involves a lot of games, laughing, running around, and a few well-placed breaks. ;) I absolutely love photographing kids! Their honesty and enthusiasm delight me. And who doesn't…

Capturing the Everyday

My kids are what got me started with photography, and they are by far my greatest inspirations. Capturing them in every stage and in moments both big and small has become my passion. While being a mom can be busy and crazy and some days I can hardly catch my breath, picking my camera up and using it to capture our daily lives has taught me to slow down and notice the beautiful moments of every day. I love to…

Dancer Head Shots

Paige is a modern dancer, and stopped by for some head shots recently in preparation for an upcoming audition. We managed to barely slip in on the last of those deep autumn tones as fall in Minnesota slipped away, and Paige was such a trooper to put up with the chill on a rainy day! Nothing quite says "dance!" to me like soft human form on black, so we shot a couple of indoor images, as well. I love the way…

Rocky Mountain Fall Family Session

One of my favorite families in one of my favorite places: the foothills of Colorado! In my sessions, I combine traditional posed shots with authentic lifestyle moments, resulting in a powerful, authentic representation of families and their relationships. This family proved to be perfect models because they were excited to come relax, play, and love on each other! Capturing these parents with their boys, the boys together, and the parents by themselves resulted in many natural moments of love and laughter---it was such a…

Waiting on Baby Brother

This beautiful summer session in Colorado features a stunning, sweet family of three anxiously awaiting their newest addition. The last moments before a new baby joins the family always seem so sacred to me. They are full of happy anticipation for the new little person about to make his or her new appearance, and also tender sentimentality as the family recognizes that their current sweet dynamic is about to change. This nearly two year girl is absolutely adored by her parents, and she is…

Three under Three Family Session!

One of my husband's best friends from high school asked me to take their family pictures when we went home to Utah over the summer. Their adorable two year old twin girls and nine month old baby boy, definitely kept me hoppin', but capturing each child and their unique personality and place in the family was delightful! I love to see the special bond that twins share, and yet notice how each child is absolutely their own unique person. And that baby.…
