MINNEAPOLIS MN ENGAGEMENT SESSION, SAINT LOUIS PARK ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Chancellor and Anna's love of the outdoors rarely fades.

From hiking to camping to biking, they'll do basically anything outside. So it made sense that their engagement session was centered around som...

DULUTH MN, CANAL PARK ENGAGEMENT SESSION

A story six years in the making, Sara patiently waited for the ring. And then it happened.

And then there was celebration.

After that, this session happened. 

The question I always start engagement session planning with is, "if you...

What started as a jalapeno juice shot while hanging out with friends, grew into something much bigger. The thing Teri + Colton love most about each other is the way they always want to create pure fun and laughter when together. Colton even told me, "I knew from the st...

I first met Chantel and Nolan by photographing their proposal at Amnicon Falls State Park last October. When they started to plan out their Madison area wedding, I was thrilled to hear from them again - and to take part in their engagement session.

These two are the rea...

Engagement sessions are kind of actually the best thing ever. You get to run around and play and wear natural clothing and just be you for a while, and you end up with some rad photographs from it. But some people find themselves more stressed than anticipated - the la...

I think Callie is the only dog to remotely hold a candle to my dog in cuteness - because look at that face!

I spent the morning of my New Year's Day with this little family in their Portland Studio and, ohmygosh, it was the literal cutest. Marlee has taken great care to...

I had hopped off my plane that landed in Portland, Oregon only 5 hours before - but after walking into this studio, I felt refreshed again.

10 years, a small child, and a handful of businesses later, Jessica and Brent are still so excited by each other. They both have a...

I had a feeling from the moment I knew they had corgis that we'd probably make an amazing fit. Evelyn and Rick and Callie and Poe (spelling to be determined, cuteness is clearly evident) all braved some icy slush and snow for their session, but dang was it pretty - eve...

Traveling to the Minneapolis area for Emily + Austin's engagement session was so much more than I imagined it would be. Their White Bear Lake home is literally the cutest thing EVER - only second to their dogs who definitely know how to have a good time.

With Emily fres...

There's really no words that describe the feelings that I had while on my trip to Colorado. First, there was the fact that I was literally on a plane heading to Colorado to photograph the most fun-loving couple I've ever known - just that mere fact was enough to spin m...

So here you are, thinking about doing (or maybe already signed up for) an in-home couples session. And you maybe haven't really seen them done before or you're not sure what to expect or you're totally as cool as a cucumber, but it's definitely a different feel to a se...

There have been such few times that I have laughed so hard at the stories that Rachael and Ryan shared with me.

I definitely spent the three days prior to this session with all of my fingers crossed that sunshine and blue skies would come back amidst all of the wildfire...

It's about to get all sorts of vulnerable up in here.

In honor of my exciting start into boudoir and intimate in-home couples sessions, I thought I would share a piece that I wrote almost two years ago about self-worth. It's been sitting in my blog drafts for a little o...

July 4, 2018

I think we define ourselves by a bunch of things, but a minimalist for me is a loose definition - even if only by heart. My house is pretty much a chaotic mess every time I walk through the door, no matter how much I clean it.

But I've started to think of love in minima...

When I started chatting with Andrea + Matt about their session in NYC, I knew I had to jump on board the Central Park bandwagon. It is unbelievable just how freaking gorgeous this green space within the city is, and with an ultra-confusing map and the ability to get lo...
