my Journal

Together is a beautiful place to be. Last fall I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the Lyon wedding at Turtle River State Park in North Dakota. This wedding was such a blast from the beginning with the main focus being their love. I love the little details of their day, and the simple decor […]

#BFF Session! Working with Kia & Shawna was an absolute blast back in June. We spent the afternoon doing hair, makeup & getting everything setup for a quick little mini session. I loved working with these two particularly because they aren’t seniors, yet, but they are super sweet and such fun to be around. I […]

Oh baby, it’s a wild world. I have a trend of babies who don’t sleep during their sessions. I love it. I got in touch with Carter’s mom after photographing my dear friend Tresa’s baby girl Steevi earlier in the year. I was excited to add another lifestyle newborn to my portfolio, plus this session […]

They love each other in a way that makes fairytales jealous Simple, intimate and wonderful. Those are the words that rang through my first meeting with Camoriah. She didn’t want anything big, just a small wedding surrounded by the people they love and no fuss, but the definitely wanted amazing photographs to remember their big […]

“You have a place in my heart no one could ever have.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald Jordan and Sarah could never have a quote that fit them more perfectly in a million years. Married in a 100 year old barn, decorated in a rustic fashion that matched their backyard reception and surrounded by their closest […]

If you’ve met me, you probably know that I am a Kate Spade fanatic. I have a wallet, purse, notebooks, pens and more from her line so when I was asked to second shoot this gorgeous Kate Spade inspired wedding I jumped at the opportunity. The biggest thing to know about Kate Spade, and lovers […]

There isn’t much that I love more in life than working with past clients to help welcome in a baby to the world. Declan’s mamas were a wedding couple from 2016, and by the grace of God were still local (military) when Mr. Declan made his arrival! This session, like all fresh 48 and newborn […]

Documenting the Del Veccioh family before their twins arrived was something I will always hold dear. We found a location off of a walking path in Grand Forks, ND that most people seem to just walk by, but that I’ve found to be one of my absolute favorite places to photograph. It’s accessible, easy to […]

This job allows me to meet tons of families like the Bregier’s. They came all the way to Red Lake Falls, MN from St. Hillaire (okay, a ten-minute drive) to work with me during my mini sessions for the Crookston animal shelter. These parents have been blessed with three very cool, very smiley kiddos. I […]

Working with talented seniors is definitely a highpoint of my job. For instance, working with Kendra Jensen, of The Jensen Sisters. Kendra is a kind hearted old soul with the voice to match.She’s spent the last few summers with her sister Kansas writing, playing and singing to Minnesotans at state fairs and country bars. Obviously she is […]
