I don’t get to work with senior guys a lot, but when I do 99.9% of the time they play hockey Which is awesome, because hockey is awesome! A few years ago I got to work with Cody from Grand Forks Central for his senior portraits. We chose a nice park in Grand Forks to […]

She’s a wildflower; Bravely growing wild & free. Ever meet someone who is just so much of a boss that you can’t help but be incredibly impressed? Well that’s Aziah. Aziah has a sweet demeanor, but there is a fierceness underneath that shows through her gorgeous eyes. After talking with her, I thought of Free […]

#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 […]

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 […]

I have a lot of love for fashionable women. They are an absolute blast to work with and I don’t get to photograph many fashion shoots, but when I do, it gives me a chance to try new poses and ideas for photographing people. It’s my way of being creative within my creative field. I […]

I met Maddie while I was working at the golf course here in Red Lake Falls -ps, awesome course, and they let me edit while working! – and I asked if she’d be interested in modeling for me during the fall. Thankfully she said yes! It’s taken me awhile to get these images blogged because […]

You’ve probably already seen Megan’s sister Ashely pop up on my blog before, and now its time for her turn to shine! I loved working with Megan because she is one of those people you gravitate toward naturally. She is fun loving, athletic and best of all? Sarcastic. She has a wit that will only […]

Turning 21 is all about two things. 1. Popping champs (champagne) 2. Being a little extra These are exactly what Maddie and I did for her 21st birthday. She had texted me when I was at work saying she didn’t have a picture to post.. and being the bit-o-extra I am, I told her to […]
