Monticello High School Senior Photos

Once upon a time, a photographer thought taking pictures of babies was the best ever.  She adamantly believed she would never ever enjoy photographing big kids (ahem, total adults) as much as she loved taking pictures of all the babies.   She MIGHT have been wrong.

When Pants No Longer Fit

 Today, let’s choose to be thrilled with our bodies. I am deciding to be grateful for splendidly functioning shoulders and less-than-perfect-but-not-terrible knees.  And, while my body displays marks of motherhood, I would give my body tenfold for these children if required. Merely by existing, your body performs countless processes beyond our comprehension. . . Forget about old pants and scale numbers. Be healthy, walk around, and find peace with your body – despite imperfections.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! [From a Snow-less MN]

"Simplify the Holidays" they say.

Everywhere I turn, a well-intentioned, serene, and wise individual reminds me of the importance of simplifying this holiday season.  Yet, everywhere I turn, I am given no practical suggestions.

Thank you, World.

Family Photos | Buffalo, MN Lifestyle Photography

My reflection led me right to my biggest fear. What if I am so excited to see them, I will forget about taking pictures and just talk about which station is now airing Mindy Project and who the Gilmore Girls should end up with? This is a real concern.  My actual nightmare is an entire photo session of no photos.  How will I explain that to my loved ones who trusted me to photograph their story? Will they hate me forever? How embarrassing!

Sarah & Peter's Minnesota Fall Wedding

A Minnesota autumn wedding could not be more perfect.  From their incredible kindness leading up to the day to their light-saber fight grand entrance, I have been so privileged to be their wedding photographer.  So many details made this wedding so uniquely theirs and it was delightful to photography it all.

My Social Media Secret

Recently, a wise woman of a different generation told a group of us mamas how lucky we are to have so much information at our fingertips.  In her day, they just had to guess.  I looked around the table and saw beautiful mothers giving parenting all they have, and with tears in their eyes.  I countered with the idea, that while often helpful, this information might be suffocating us all.

Jillian's Senior Photos | Twin Cities, MN Lifestyle Photography

Someday, my children will be seniors and I will stare longingly at them as they pose for senior photos and think about when I used to squeeze their cheeks (for real) and stare at them as they slept (because sleeping babies are the best babies).  I simply cannot handle such a bizarre thought.  My children will never be seniors.  We will be one little happy family stalled out in the toddler years FOREVER.  (Although, if someday they can toilet themselves, that’d be fine.)

Eli + Family | In-home Lifestyle Photography | St. Paul, MN

Here, you will find photos of the sweetest family. They just relocated to Minnesota and build a “permanent” home.   Yay!   We were planning on meeting in Minneapolis and did a last minute photo shoot location change to their almost completed new-build. And I am SO glad we did! I had such a blast getting covered in dust and they were total troopers through the whole photo shoot. In-home photography tells a story of your season of life.  Lifestyle photography becomes more than just a photo session, but a glimpse into your season of life.

How to Not Hate Family Photos [Minnesota Family & Lifestyle Photography]

What should the kids wear? Are we all supposed to wear the same color? Is that no longer trendy? I want to be trendy.  I think the baby needs some mint pants.  Mint is in. Maybe mustard would be better? Do I have a top to match that? Are we supposed to match? Shoot. Is that a zit on my daughter? One ME?? Can the photographer edit that out?  What if the baby looses it?  And there is no way my son is going to sit still.  How is the photographer supposed to get a picture of him if he will not stop moving.  Are our smiles going to look cheesy? We have nothing to wear.  Do we all need new clothes?  Where can I get matching outfits? Are we even supposed to match!?!
