Hello! I am a Minnesota based photographer who specializes in weddings, as well as family photography.
I love new perspectives, and seeing life outside of my own reality. This has been a huge game changer for my work as a photographer, as I really learned to capture true moments which reflect actual experiences and invoke emotion. As a photographer, I put myself in a vulnerable position of silliness. I do what it takes to get the smiles, even if it is making funny faces to kids, singing and dancing to silly songs, or even trying to crack a few jokes (usually not all that funny but gets the job done, lol). A fun and upbeat environment is what I try to create as a directer, love, light, and happiness is what I strive to capture as a photographer.
When I am not looking through my viewfinder, I also am a painter, nature lover, traveler, hiker, dog & cat lover, book worm, and most importantly, I have a wonderful family and am a mom to two amazing little boys!
I will make sure you feel comfy and completely natural in front of the camera. I will give you prompts and fun things to do to feel natural and get candid shots!
No worries! I will give you prompts and poses, but also will let you know what looks most flattering, and will let you know if something looks off!
This is the best part of the experience! I don't want you to feel like the camera is watching you. I will create an environment that is free and fun, so this can be a real memory to look back on, rather than some posed & planned moment.
