  • For This Child I Have Prayed

  • Ben and Emmalee have had a big year. In the past 365 days they have said "I do", honeymooned,  finished law school (YAY!) and welcomed their daughter into the world. That may sound a bit overwhelming to you, but I assure you this couple handled it with nothing but grace and love. The beautiful woman[...]
  • Norah's Birth Story

  •    I was honored to be invited to this life event to document Norah Marie's entrance into the world. I have never done birth photography before, but I'm so glad Katie and Neal asked me to be there, it was incredible. Welcome to the world sweet Norah! ^^Neal 's face after they said it was a[...]
  • The Hansons

  • The Hanson's were one of the first families I had the pleasure of photographing when I moved to Virginia, seeing them is always a treat! They (like me) are Minnesota natives, so we have a special connection and a mutual appreciation of the lack of snow in Virginia :) They are such a sweet family and[...]
  • Pete, Gina & Moe

  • I am so happy Pete and Gina invited me over to their home to take pictures of their family!  They wanted some updated pictures including the new addition to their family, a fur baby named Moe! I was excited to take these pictures for two main reasons: 1) I love dogs. A lot. When I get to combine wor[...]
  • Daddy & Autumn Go to the Zoo

  • I'm a little late on sharing these photos, but better late than never, right? While I was in Minnesota in June I spent the most wonderful morning with my favorite older brother (I only have one, shhh) and my favorite niece (also only have one, but shh again) at the Minnesota Zoo. I followed them aro[...]
  • Love Lives Here

  • "What I love most about my home...is who I share it with." I've said it before and I'll say it again, I LOVE photographing families in their home. There is no backdrop, scene or location that can beat the backdrop of your own home. Lindsey, Ashton and Hayden welcomed me into their new home in Farmi[...]
  • Tiny Miracle

  • Sweet little Noah was so anxious to see the big bright world that he was born 10 weeks before his due date, weighing only a few pounds. Fast forward through a long hospital stay, many prayers and three months later, Noah is strong, healthy and the pride and joy of his loving parents. Noah must have [...]
  • The Happiest Boy in the World

  • First, I want to start this post by saying how small of a world we live in...How did I meet this lovely family? Well, a friend of mine that I used to work with years ago at Maurices in Minnesota is Jacob's (the adorable boy you are about to see) aunt. Her husband's sister lives in Virginia and when [...]
  • Who needs a studio anyways

  • My trips back to Minnesota seem to coincide perfectly with the mile markers of the Lyngholm kids. I was there late last January for Christian's 2 year photos. I was back again in June to welcome Elyse into the world and 6 months later I was back in Minnesota to see how much she'd grown! I will also [...]
  • The Dorris Family

  • This is Lindsey, Ashton and Hayden. I took photography class in college with Lindsey and it’s always a treat to photograph for her, because she has a terrific eye herself and has great style! In fact, her daughter Hayden is usually better dressed than I am. Look and see for yourself. [...]
