Some Small Business Shots

Hello again! As I mentioned in my last blog–this past weekend, I was working with a small business, Lillians of Anoka, to get the owner some fresh photos. She has hired a marketing team to come in and help her out with some social media stuff, and she is also planning to freshen up her…

Forest Lake Family Photos

My sister and I have been saying ‘we’re gonna do it this year’, for a couple years now. And, just like a lot of things in life–we talk a big game, but, time gets away from us. (Well, it doesn’t get ‘away’. It just goes other places. It goes to the kids, to parents, to…

Lino Lakes Family Photography

All right! Here’s family two, of three, to close out my 2018. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the Blaine, Lino Lakes, and Forest Lake area lately–and, these guys are no exception to that. I’ve been working with this, awesome, family since long before the third little one came into the picture. (Hah!…

The Hike That Almost Wasn’t

Just poppin’ in for a minute (or five), here tonight. In my last blog, I made mention that I needed a head clearing hike this weekend. Well, I got it. I squeezed it in bright, and early, on Saturday morning (not really, it was at like 11). It was so cold out–I almost didn’t get…

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…

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…

A New Addition :: Minnesota Summer Family Photography

Hello! It’s time for a baby break, on the blog tonight. 🙂 (Speaking of baby break–this is my last family session until later in the Fall. 🙂 ) The Bailey family recently added on a brand new, baby girl; and I got to go get their first, family of four, photos! Here are just a…
