  1. 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

  2. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. Lizz & Matt | Lancaster Maternity Lifestyle Photography

    “And the Child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him.” Luke 2:40Sweet nephew of mine. You already have my heart, my prayers and a portion of my credit card limit reserved only for you. Just a few more weeks until we can finally meet and I can start telling you only the very best stories about your mom & dad (and probably some good embarrassing ones too, because what else are aunts for?). Love you … Read More

  8. Kelsey & John | Pepin, Wisconsin Wedding Photography

    Kelsey & John. Getting to know couples over the duration of their engagement is probably one of the highlights in this chosen career of mine and, I have to say, the time that we got to spend together was some of my ultimate favorite. From our initial meetings (IN 2014 YOU GUYS) to your rain soaked engagement session to your sun soaked wedding day, those days were the very best. Here’s to more shared wine, laughs and frizzy hair times together in … Read More

  9. Amy & Nick | Saint Paul Wedding Photography

    I have this thing for the spring season. A big thing. A big heart pounding the-earth-is-alive-again-and-winter-is-gone type of thing. When you live in a location where almost 5 months out of the year are spent under a thick layer of snow & ice, there is something so gosh darn euphoric that happens to an entire city when the trees start sprouting these neon green leaves and the tulips start popping their little heads out of the ground like the survivors they are. For … Read More


    To my unbelievable 2016 couples – and I mean this from the depths of my soul – you changed my entire world. The beauty, love and encouragement you brought to my life put the pieces of my heart back together over and over again in a year that endeavored to smash it to bits. One day I’ll share more but in the in-between, know that you and your love will be a part of me forever. “i carry your heart … Read More
