Wife. Mother. Grandma. Photographer. Mac & Cheese lover. Bacon.
Hi there! Thanks for taking a minute to find out a bit about me. Family is a priority to me, always has been, always will be. I am married to a wonderful man named Tony, and with our blended family we have 6 adult children and 7 grandchildren. Tony and I love spending time with our grandkids, fishing, boating, and taking day trips around Minnesota. I have a background in early childhood education, and also worked in "Corporate America" for many years before deciding to take the leap into creating a business doing what I love.
I have chosen to focus my career on what I love. FAMILY. Pregnancy, birth, newborns, and family photography. My vision is to document the intimacy and emotion of growing families for my clients to cherish for decades ahead. I want my photos to be the ones your children are looking at when they are adults, showing their own children what life was like when they were little. I am not a hobby photographer, but rather I operate a registered, licensed and insured professional photography business.
I describe my style as natural and loving, with some fun mixed in. I like to take a documentary approach to my photography and create a story. A story of you. Of your children. Of your family. While I do some posing, most of my favorite photos are of the unexpected moments where life is just happening, as these are often times my client's favorite photos, too!
I am a full service photographer, and will work with you from the moment you contact me until you have your photos on the wall or in an album on your coffee table. I believe that photos should not just be taken, but should be printed and displayed, to be admired forever. However, if you prefer digital images, I happily provide those as well.
I will get to know you and your family before your session. The needs of each and every client will be unique to their family, and I make sure to capture that in my photography. What works for one family may not work for another. My job is to create a personalized experience for every client, and provide you with images that show your family's personality.
