The Beautiful Mad Hatter :: Anoka Minnesota Photography

Good morning! I still have a few challenge photos to post here; but, I wanted to pop in and share a bit of my shoot from this weekend, over at the Mad Hatter in Anoka. (Their website is here.) The Mad Hatter is such a fun place to have a camera–this session was, specifically, to…

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…

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…

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…

Harrison { Twin Cities Family Photographer }

Today, I got to meet Harrison. He was calm, and alert, and so very, very, handsome. He liked to watch everything that his little eyes could make out, and he liked to listen just as much. Today, I also got to witness the very beginnings of a brand new family. They were born into this…

Breyanna’s Senior Photos { Saint Paul Minnesota Photographer }

I’ve always thought that fashion photography would be a good niche for me–it’s not something I can really pursue right now, but, maybe someday. Then, Saturday’s Senior Session happened and the urge hit again–that was when I got to photograph Breyanna–she played right into the fashion photographer in me. This girl brought the dresses. (Also,…
