It’s no secret that Lake Superior has a special place in this heart of mine. It’s vastness reminds me so much of the ocean – but it feels so rugged and raw in comparison. A place where you can walk the crashing shoreline and enjoy the warmth of a crackling campfire as the sun slips […]
There’s something so special to me about meeting my couples and getting to hang out a bit before the big day rolls around. It’s even better when I get to meet them in their own city or favorite spot. Last weekend, I made my way to St. Paul to meet up with Valarie and Tanner at […]
When Taylor reached out to me explaining her vision for a one-year anniversary session for her and her husband, I knew I was “in” right away. It didn’t take much convincing for me to be on board with tulle skirts, puppies (puppies with florals at that), a stunning bouquet by Kase Styles, and the concept […]
Requests for dogs at sessions and weddings? Common. Requests for horses to take the spotlight during an engagement session? Not everyday and it may be one of my favorite engagement sessions to date because of just that! I met Stefanie and Chris at an equestrian center where she boards her horse for their mid-summer engagement […]
Jeremy and Maggie met me at Hartman Creek State Park for their engagement session earlier this week. With chances of rain in the forecast, we had gone back and forth for awhile on whether or not to reschedule. In the end, Maggie made the final call that we were going to go for it! I […]

This is exactly what Dustin and Leslie accomplished on their wedding day. They created a day that was relaxed and genuine, yet beautiful in […]
All too often, we believe that photos are to be taken at only at select major life milestones: graduation, marriage, the birth of a newborn, the list goes on. I am a firm believer in documenting life at every step along the way and not thinking twice about it. Ryan and Olivia recently celebrated their […]
Several weeks ago I opened my inbox to find a message from Chelsea. She wrote of her need for engagement pictures, but embedded in her message was something unique. She hoped to have these pictures taken within the next few weeks as they were preparing for Mitch’s deployment. I didn’t think twice about clearing my […]
You're nestled up by a fire at your family cabin, lakeside, with only the stars to accompany your sweet conversation over hot cocoa and Blue Moon.
Family, friends, and twinkle lights. Windblown hair. Hiking boots for adventurous photography. Cozy moments for just the two of you.
A dirty hem from dancing and making memories...
and smiles you just can't wipe off your faces.
