Outside to Play

So far, the winter here, in Minnesota, has been pretty tame. Not much snow, pretty mild temps–all, in all, it’s been super simple. I’m a winter lover, so snow, cold, ice–I love it all. (Except for driving in it. I don’t do that.) Ya know what I kinda don’t love though? Getting little kids dressed…

New Years Resolutions

More random blogging, you say!? Okay! I’m up for it. 🙂 It’s relevant to the season anyway–it’s all about New Years Resolutions. For 2019–my resolution is my career. I think I made mention of that a few blogs ago. It’s time to get moving again on what I do, and, with the turn of the…

My ‘New’ Christmas Decor

Two, ‘for-fun’, blogs in a row; I love it. It’s really fun to just sit down and just write a bit. I haven’t had a blog where I just write since that terrible one from the mid-2000’s (I refer to that one as, ‘she-who-will-not-ever-be named’.) This blog, in-particular, has taken me nearly three weeks to…

Happy Winter Solstice

Tomorrow the days start to get longer–for today though, we celebrate the shortest day of the year. Today, we celebrate the Winter Solstice. There’s something about celebrating today that has become essential for my mental health as the days tick closer, and closer, to Christmas. Somewhere in the middle of all of the commercials, and…

Blaine Family Photos

It sounds generic, and like something that every Photographer says–but, I really do love my photo families. I love that I get invited back into their home year, after year. I love that I get to grow with them, and watch them change every year. I love that I get to be a part of…

Anoka Fall Family Session

Hello again! It’s eleven p.m. and here I am–alone, on the couch, with a candle and Christmas tree lit on either side of me. I have Hulu, and a snoring dog, and I couldn’t be happier in this moment. Things are mellow, things are calm, and I can finally get this gorgeous family up on…

Fall Senior Photos

Hello! It’s fun to be catching up with the whole blog thing–and, look, here I am again. 🙂 I’m just stopping in quickly today to show off a few of my favorite shots of Gabe, from when we shot his senior portraits earlier this Fall. He did something I have never seen done before during…

Late Summer Senior Photos

I’m on a roll; three blog in a row. 🙂 I’m just excited to be back to this whole blogging thing, it feels good–and, I have plenty of work to show off. My last blog was my last shoot from late last summer–before my littlest one was born. (Find it here if you’re curious.) Tonight…

Throwback Head Shots

Well, since I’m on a roll with this whole back-to-blogging thing (and by that, I mean I’ve blogged once in the last, almost, year and a half), I figured I could add another quickie to my epic ‘comeback’. The last photo shoot I did, last Fall, was of a local actress. She’s the age of…

Coming Back Around

I have been thinking, and thinking, and struggling with how to ‘come back’ to all of the hustle that I walked away from just over a year ago. That hustle had become all-consuming in my mind. I found myself constantly comparing myself to what others were doing, and joining groups that would have me subtly…
