  • Le Petit Picasso

  • This is Vittorio La Rocca, affectionately referred to a Vito. Vito is awesome. One of my favorite things about him (other than his name) is that he isn't afraid to get messy. I've seen him manhandle a chocolate cupcake, heard stories of him wading knee deep into muddle puddles and recently witnessed[...]
  • 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 [...]
  • Snow Princess

  • The morning of this photo shoot I woke up with weather warnings on my phone, severe cold moving in, below zero wind chills...(ahh it's good to be back home in MN...) it would have been logical to call it off. However, for two Minnesota born girls, it was just another day in the life. We both moved t[...]
  • America found their next top model | Briana

  • I was thrilled when Briana contacted me about getting some photos done for her modeling portfolio. Who doesn't want to take photos of a beautiful girl that is a rock star in front of the camera? This girl is the definition of natural beauty. I think her future looks extremely bright!  I can't wait f[...]
  • Flower Child

  • This is Kathryn and Elyse, two beautiful sisters on a beautiful fall day last weekend. I had a particularly fun time with two year old Kathryn, whom I like to call the Flower Child. She is full of life and has a huge personality! She had little interest in taking pictures and A LOT of interest in fi[...]
  • Nick & Lauren: Soda Pop, Silliness & Sunsets

  • Nick and Lauren are just the sweetest couple. They met at the Naval Academy in 2010 and a year later(ish) began dating. (Although, there is great debate over what their first date was… but we won’t get into it) Currently Nick is serving on the USS McFaul while Lauren will graduate from the Academy i[...]

  • Hey McFaul friends! To see more photos from Hunt Club Farm, go to my main page, click on Client Viewing and look for the Hunt Club Farm Gallery. You are welcome to download your photos straight from there. Hope ya’ll had a great time on Saturday!
  • Cool Things You Find In Your Parent’s Basement

  • I was getting ready for a shoot and was rummaging through my parent’s basement looking for something I could potentially use as a prop when I scored this awesome trunk. My mom has had this trunk since I can remember and it has always stored dress up clothes. I’ve pulled dresses, hats and random cost[...]
  • Future Baby Stavig

  • Daniel and Calleigh were an absolute breeze to photograph. This is pretty much how things went down: Find a location, get comfortable and I think my exact words would be “Okay guys, be cute” and this is what happened… Clearly it wasn’t their first time being photographed.  
  • 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. [...]
