My photography journey began when I picked up my first camera when I was 14. My love for photography started with photographing nature, precisely the tiny things in nature most people wouldn't usually notice. While I still love photographing nature, my photography journey has led me to capturing my amazing clients and their special memories!
I was born and raised in a small town 30-minutes south of the Twin Cities. I met the man of my dreams while studying (let's be honest, I was talking with my friends) in our college library. After a few short months of dating, we knew we were meant for each other! Three years later, we tied the knot! Before Alex even got down on one knee, we put a down payment on our Corgi, Kipper. We can't imagine our life without him! He is quite the spaz, but also a total sweetie! Ask me about him at your session, and I'll probably show you a ton of photos of him!
Growing up, my mom always took photos of our family on vacation, spending time with our family and friends, along with many other special occasions. I'm so thankful she did because now I have all of those fantastic memories to look back on.
This is why savoring special moments is so important to me! From a high school senior about to embark on a new chapter of their life, to a family celebrating the birth of their newborn; I want to capture it all!
So what do ya say? Let's make those memories last forever!
Alex and Kipper (my husband and our Corgi) never fail to make me laugh.
Kipper’s name comes from a cartoon I used to watch as a kid: Kipper the Dog. On the show, Kipper is a British Beagle, but I felt like the name would fit the personality of a Corgi much better!
I'm a born and raised Minnesotan, but I'm not a fan of cold weather or snow. If I had it my way I would be living in the PNW (Pacific North West); specifically in Oregon.
One place that's a must-see for me is Multnomah Falls in Oregon. Look it up and you'll see why.
My friends and family call me a crazy plant lady. I have over 20 house plants and counting. Needless to say, I would live in a greenhouse in a heartbeat!
One of my favorite house plants that I own is the Monstera Deliciosa! I have three of them, and I propagated them all from my first Monstera plant.
Besides corgis, I love butterflies and bumble bees!
Although I love all kinds of food, I crave Chipotle 24/7 (seriously, I do)! My order has been and always will be: A chicken bowl with extra white rice, fajitas, mild salsa, and shredded cheese! Mhmm...I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!
I'm a firm believer in leaving no trace. I love the motto "take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but foot prints". There is no planet B, so we need to take care of Mother Nature.
Whenever I get the chance, I like to go for walks and pick up any trash I find.
You'll hear from me within the next 24 hours.
I would love to hear from you, and help you with any questions you may have about the services I offer. If you’re like me, you're probably not a fan of talking on the phone. Go ahead and fill out the form or send me an email. If you don't hear back from me within 24 hours, please send me an email instead!
I'm looking forward to working with you and getting to know you!
