  1. Oho Business Talk | No. 1

    Happy Slow Season, friends! With 2018 being my tenth (YOU GUYS) wedding season in business, I’ve learned a thing or two about myself as a business owner and while I know other may thrive in the “busy”, I know that – for me – rest & renewal is necessary to being my best self when the next wedding season rolls around. As much as I love (and I do truly love) wedding season and the constant state of work, hustle … Read More

  2. TWENTY-EIGHTEEN

    2017. In the midst of a year that felt exceptionally chaotic, both from a personal and business perspective, I found myself seeking out & savoring the quieter moments of life. The moments where the world goes quiet around you as you walk with your love. The minutes where laughing with your best friends seems to heal something inside of you. The moments where those nearest and dearest see you in a different light and especially those solo moments where you … Read More

    The fact that most of the subjects of my latest newborn posts are having their first birthdays already mayyyyyyyybe a sign that I should blog more but maybe, just maybe, they serve as the best reminders of those (exhausting & seemingly never-ending but truly) wonderful newborn days of the past as these littles ones are now crawling, scooting, walking and filled with tiny, powerhouse personalities. Rex, you could not be more loved. I hope you still have those killer cheeks.

  4. Evie | Apple Valley Newborn Lifestyle Photography

    I’ve alluded to this before, but newborns were not a part of my original business plan way back in 2009. In fact, for probably the first 2-3 years of my business, I turned potential business and families away because it was SO NOT a part of the plan and I was SO NOT INTO documenting a family’s transition into parenthood. (I’m the worst. It’s ok. You can think that too.) Well, as it usually goes, the joke is 100% on … Read More

  5. Shaynah Dodge for Glitter Guide

    A few months back (editor’s note – ok, ok SIXTEEN MONTHS AGO) I got to spend a chilly Minnesota morning shooting and chatting with Shaynah Dodge for the powerhouse blog Glitter Guide and no doubt after viewing the images below, you might see why it ended up being one of my very favorite interior shoots of all of 2016. You might know Shaynah as the MN gal with the incredibly beautiful (but yet entirely relatable) instagram feed @ruffledsnob but if you … Read More

  7. Bonnett Family | Wayzata Lifestyle Photography

    I am fully convinced baby thighs will ruin me. (But, for real though.) Sweet Bonnett Family. I adored that early spring morning we got to spend together dodging goose poop and convincing a 6-month old and a puppy that they did actually want to snuggle. Seriously, it was the best and I would do it again in a heartbeat. (Seriously.) xo

  8. Katie & Matt | Minneapolis Wedding Photography

    The scent of peonies, the warmth of the sun, the sound of laughter and clinking glasses. These are the three things I remember most from Katie & Matt’s wedding day. There were other moments too, of course. Like their First Look that set my heart ablaze as Matt saw Katie for the first time and looked at her in a way that only happens once in a great while and most of the time, only in the best romantic movies. Or … Read More

  9. Molly & Ryan | Minneapolis Wedding Photography

    We’re just getting into the thick of the 2017 but I’ve been sitting here, going through photos from the 2016 wedding season and I can’t help but think how lucky I am to have been able to be a small part of the lives of these truly spectacular couples. Like these two. Molly & Ryan. A couple who count more stamps in their passport from the past 12 months than I have totally purposeless baskets laying around my house (current … Read More
