Minnesota Co. Clothing Shoot :: Anoka Photographer

I just wanted to pop in here tonight to share a few of the images I recently shot while working with the Minnesota Co. — based in Anoka, MN.  Between Instagram giveaways, a recently launched website, a new blog, and ongoing social media postings…they needed some fresh shots of their best, cold-weather, MN apparel–which is…

Rebecca and the Girls :: Twin Cities Family Photography

One of my absolute favorite things about being a family photographer, is having the ability to watch my families grow.  It’s so noticeable when you only work together on an annual basis–and, it’s even more noticeable when you go back to the same location after shooting there three years prior. The first few photos are…

Photography for Kids :: Teaching in Anoka

Today feels so good. The workshop I’ve been prepping to teach for months is done. 🙂 I presented this past weekend, to a group of teachers, my ideas to help connect the art of photography to kids–while also keeping a creative, sane, and fun classroom experience happening. It was such a great lecture to put…

Brian and Shannan’s Wedding :: Central MN Photographer

Years ago…sittin’ around the lake, with a drink in our hands–when I was very first gettin’ going with photography, and still shooting on my Canon Rebel–this girl says to me, ‘If I ever get married, I want you to shoot my wedding.’  So, early in May, of this year–I got a text saying, ‘I wanted…

Some Head Shots for an Actress :: Anoka Photographer

Sometimes, I meet folks who seem to have it so together, at such a young age, that I immediately feel like more of a mess in my ‘older’ age. When I met ‘S’, that’s exactly what happened. First of all…this girl is 13. Her soul though…well, I believe her soul is probably hundreds of years…

Anna Senior Shots :: Saint Paul Photographer

Okay. Note to self…before using Mears Park as the perfect, shooting spot that it is–check the Saint Paul Saints schedule. Wow. I’m really good at double checking to make sure that things aren’t under construction, or closed…but, I totally blew off the fact that this park is one block away from a baseball stadium, and…

Cassidy :: Twin Cities Senior Portraits

I remember, briefly, meeting Cassidy years ago. She was adorable, responsible, smart and she had a sweet sort of warmth that just resonated from her. This time around–I got to hang out with her a lot more–and, not surprisingly, all of those traits are still there, they’ve just grown up with her. We kicked off…

It’s an Eastside Wedding { Saint Paul Photographer }

It’s no secret I’m an Eastsider, my family is Eastside; my husband, and his family are Eastside. There’s pride that comes with that. No matter where life brings you…once an Eastsider, always an Eastsider–from hot temper, to fierce loyalty…it’s all there. SO…obviously, the chance to shoot a house wedding over there, while overlooking downtown and…
