Hello and Welcome!! I am a lifestyle portrait & wedding photographer, seeing photographic awesomeness in the light & shadows, subtle looks & touches, and of course all the dorky moments in-between . . . . I am a firm believer in being yourself and letting that shine in your photographs. I love getting to show someone what the rest of us see.

I live in St. Paul, MN with my hubby, Nate and am fur-momma to a goofy & snuggly boy, Reuben. Never have I had a dog as dorky & playful one minute, then needs Mama snuggles and kisses the next.  

I live in flip flops once the snow melts in the Spring - sometimes that is May or even June in MN - until it falls again in the autumn. Otherwise I'm in flats. I LOVE my Tieks!!

I grew up on the south side of Chicago and moved to the Twin Cities area when I was 15. I know, love and miss all the amazing Chicago food.

I love to cook + bake but don’t do it nearly enough. I love pizza, pasta, burgers, awesome sandwiches (yes, my dog is named after my favorite) & bbq-anything. Salty snacks over sweet any day, but nothing beats a piece of kick-ass cake after a long wedding day.

I'm addicted to Coffee, Diet Coke, Costco, and Pinterest. I play my fair share of video games and I've always been a fan of The Sims.

I LOVE to read and almost always have a book with me. I'm a Whovian, Trekkie and Star Wars fangirl. I love old musicals, John Wayne movies, and old Science-Fiction films. We have a very extensive movie library and watch a movie a day. You name it - we probably have it.

Road trips are some of the best adventures. Nate and I took an amazing trip for 9 days down to Route 66, across the southwest, then up and down California and managed to not murder the other. Major win!!

If you’ve read this far, you can probably tell I’m a big loud dork, but I’m also an introvert that LOVES her quiet and alone time.

Get in touch with me if you think we’d get along and make something awesome together.
