Simply scroll down to learn more about me and why I'd love to be your photographer
I am a photographer that specializes in maternity, newborn, & family portraits. I'm located in Lindstrom, MN and serve East Central Minnesota and Western Wisconsin.
Photography is more than my job,
it's my life.
I'm so lucky to do what I love every day.
Photographing expectant mothers & newborns is my happy place. Family, friends and clients often refer to me as the baby whisperer. It brings me peace to hold them, pose them and photograph those tiny little humans. Someone once told me that I have a natural gift of handling babies and children.
And family sessions! These are the most fun! My sessions are filled with laughter, games and pure fun. I try to stay clear of the traditional smile and say cheese. I want to capture the genuine connections… the love and personalities! Don’t worry, I’m sure to get a few traditional “smile for the camera” shots! We all know those are the photos Grandma wants. Ha!
I’ve been perfecting my craft over the last 10 years! I am mostly self-taught but continue to educate myself through classes, workshops, retreats, and collaborating with other photographer friends. I am also well educated in newborn safety.
I have a creative eye for capturing natural poses and keen eye for beautiful light placement. It’s important to me to design a session that you can display perfectly in your home and fits your family’s personal story. My primary goal is to leave you feeling satisfied and excited to see the final products from our session.
My family is the sole reason I found my path here in the photography world. I’m married to my high school sweetheart, Bret. We have two beautiful children. Ian, age 13 & Eva, age 12. I’ve always had a love for photography. As a new mother, I found myself wanting to document EVERY SINGLE milestone and I’m so glad I did. Time goes by so fast. I never thought I’d forget those milestones, but let's be honest, as a new mother, you’re busy, exhausted and sometimes just trying to get through the day… you do forget some of them. Babies, Toddlers and heck… school aged children are busy! We all know… it goes by too fast… and tomorrow those babies will be a day older.
In the end, I identify as a passionate, creative photographer who wants to produce the highest quality photographs and heirloom products for families in an effort to permanently capture moments in time. I consider your investment to be reasonable, given the high quality and extreme amount of care that I put into providing you with the best products.
My friends & family would describe me as kind hearted with a mix of sarcasm. ;)
