    Just a little bit about me. I'm a Southeast Minnesota based photographer specializing in family, children, and senior photography. I have always enjoyed taking pictures and valued documenting my family's life with photographs and scrapbooks. In 2005, I turned my passion for photography into a profession. I am enjoying every minute of it! I am so thankful that I get to spend time with wonderful people and get to do something I love while capturing memories for my clients at all stages of their lives.

One-Year-Old Girl {SE MN Children’s Portrait Photographer}

Oh my goodness I just loved Miss B’s entire session so much! We opted to bring Fall indoors for this one year old as she had just gotten over a cold. She had a smile for every shot and was full of personality! She was a riot and so so adorable. She gave me some incredible expressions! You can’t help but laugh when you are interacting with her. We have had the opportunity to photograph Miss B every 3 months during her Watch Me Grow Session so this was a bit of a bittersweet session as we won’t be seeing her every 3 months anymore. I can’t believe she is already a one-year-old.

Family {Spring Valley Minnesota Family Portrait Photographer}

Back in August, I had the absolute pleasure of photographing this family! They’re such a great looking bunch and really are so wonderful to work with. And the color they chose, LOVE! Here’s a peek at what we got with our time together!

National Farmer’s Day {SE MN Ag Portrait Photographer}

National Farmer’s Day, a day of honor is very much deserved to all of the hard-working farmers. Here are some photos of my favorite farmer, my Dad. Hope we don’t have another harvest like we did in 2014 with snow on the ground especially considering we still had snow this year in April. Hard to believe but the last 2 photos were taken exactly one month apart this year.

Thanks to all the farmers!
