Hello!  Thank your for visiting my site! I am an on-location and studio portrait photographer as well as a Real Estate photographer in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area
I specialize in children, families, lifestyle newborn and professional portraiture.


I am a wife and mother who discovered my love for photography after my first baby was born. I've been taking photographs of families for over 10 years and each session confirms why I love photographing these special moments.


I would say that my style of photography is to get you at your most genuine self. I want to capture you when you're goofing off, posed and creative. I like to keep my editing simple with brightness and rich colors. I've been featured in magazines such as Minnesota Parent.


My love for children combined with the sillies and tons of locked up energy has proven to be a superpower when getting that "perfect" snapshot. I'm not afraid to be as silly as I have to be to get that genuine look! 


My goal is to capture your families natural spunk, charm, class and well, "YOU"  by making you feel comfortable and at ease. I promise we'll laugh, goof around and be silly all the while making memories and great photos!


I can't wait to meet you and see you again if you've experienced the fun already!
