“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is you-er than you. Shout aloud, I am glad to be what I am. Thank goodness I’m not a ham, or a clam, or a dusty old jar of gooseberry jam. I am what I am, what a great thing […]

Vee and Donny have been eying the Harriet Pavillion in St. Paul, Minnesota in her early stages of wedding planning. The venue is usually booked years in advance, so when they had a last-minute cancellation, they snagged the only possible date available to get married in 2018 and quickly planned their wedding. Vee didn’t care […]

Our session with Myka and Paul was filled with laughter and stories about their children. They were nervous and reminded me that they aren’t photogenic and horrible at posing, but photographing people isn’t all about posing. It’s about making my clients comfortable. My job as the photographer is to create the environment for them to […]

Nancy reached out to me to photograph her second pregnancy since she didn’t have time to schedule a maternity shoot with her first baby, Quinn. She wanted a lifestyle shoot of her family at home and outside doing one of their favorite things–playing with the water sprinkler. I was more than thrilled to try something […]

I love photographing couples. There is nothing easier than photographing two people, completely in love with each other. The photos are more candid, the poses are more natural, and the smiles are genuine. M & L is exactly that. It was so fun photographing them because of how comfortable they are with one another. We […]

I got the opportunity to photograph a local dance group in Madison called Sunshine Dance Group. We scheduled the photo session on a clear day but for some reason as soon as we got to our location, it started to rain. We were all confused since we all have been tracking the weather all day […]

Tracy and Johnny. Johnny and Tracy. That’s how their love story goes. Tracy, with a smile so contagious and a heart so warm, is the perfect match for Johnny–friendly, loving, and family oriented. Although their morning was running a little behind schedule, they took it all amazingly well and still had fun. They enjoyed every […]

Youa in the fall

Youa’s family session felt like a family reunion. It felt like I was meeting my sisters after years of being separated, even though we just met for the first time. I didn’t realize it in the moment, but I know now that her session was comfortable because she was herself–funny, happy, and absolutely laid back. […]
