why i do what i do...

I am a natural light lover. I am dedicated to capturing you and your family in an organic, real and meaningful way. There will be very little forced and posed images as I don't believe they truly tell your story (ok, maybe a few casually posed images). I will be more concerned that you are making a connection with those you love than to have every hair in place or clothes perfect. I want the action and curiosity of a toddler, the giggles and energy of a high school senior, and the hugs and playfulness of a family connecting with each other. THAT is what your session will be about. Something that will evoke emotions years from now as you see your images.

 

Instead of you coming to MY world, I will come to YOU, or we can wander out and about together to capture your beautiful images. You will choose a location (or two) that is special to you. Somewhere you want to capture this moment in time. I would love to come in to your perfectly imperfect home where your life unfolds naturally. Or perhaps you have a favorite park or field or barn. Maybe there is this favorite coffee shop you love, or a trail you love to bike on. Lake Harriet has great beaches, and Excelsior with its charm and rustic buildings. How about the perfectly groomed gardens of the Arboretum or a downtown urban look that's funky and fun. Or perhaps you would love to visit my natural light loft studio in the NE Mpls Arts District. TOGETHER we will come up with the perfect spot for you!

 

You can relax and know that when you work with me, you are getting a photographer with 20 years of experience who believes there is always room to learn, so I am constantly diving into some form of continuing education or teaching. I am also a graphic artist by trade, so I "get" the whole visual thing and your albums and cards will look amazing!

 

Let us take this journey together...
