Austin was pure joy to photograph. This adorable little guy slept the entire shoot. -a newbie first for me! We used a few props from there home such as a basket, blanket & stuffed animal monkey called Manhattan, so Austin and his parents will be able to connect these images with some keepsake items in […]
Hey there and thanks for stopping by!
I enjoy long walks on the beach and romantic candle lit dinners. Cliche?
While this might be somewhat true, it's not me. You'd more likely find me running on the beach or scaling a mountain or more realistically, since I now live in MN, anywhere outdoors enjoying the fresh air. …oh and my camera is us usually attached to my hip.
I have two awesome kiddos and a handsome, smart husband. As one would expect, they are the center or my universe. It's true my son was the last bit of inspiration I needed to jump ship as a teacher to become a photographer nearly 6 years ago, but over the years, I've become much more than a mom with a camera.
Photography is a critical piece of my being. I'm honored to call it my career and am fortunate to have experienced the support I have. I've photographed countless weddings, and I'd be willing to bet close to 1,000 portrait sessions.
I have a confession. I wouldn't call me a typical photographer. I don't give a ton of thought to keeping up with the Jones' or satisfying the latest trend. What inspires me is authenticity. I'm very real, and I appreciate capturing genuine people. I know the difference between a cheese smile and pure joy. It's my goal for my clients to like-love the session as much as their images… this includes the guys involved. I like to have fun and am game to *almost* anything.
Weddings are a photographic priority. I shoot for story. I will run my butt off the whole time I am working to ensure the day falls together seamlessly. My husband, when second shooting, does the same. We're a great complimentary team. As much as we like to have a good time with our weddings, we take them very seriously.
Ahhh… I'm naturally long winded and could ramble on and on, but let's face it, no one has the time to read a novel here. Thanks for making it this far! I'd love to chat more. Send me a note or give me a ring if you'd like.
