  • Welcome to my blog!

    I am so glad you are here! I really am. I hope you like it here. I hope you find that I really strive to create beautiful, timeless, precise representation of you and your family through my work.

    I am an experienced photographer serves Central Minnesota and beyond. I have a studio in downtown Alexandria, MN as well as provide on location photography. I offer photography for families, children and newborns, grads, business and boudoir.

    One of the best compliments I can receive besides, "Have you been getting younger? You look fantastic" :) is, "You captured us so perfectly". The other best compliment is when you tell your friends about my work. It truly is my honor. I am so blessed you choose me as your storyteller through photography.

    I love it when loving, awesome, positive comments are posted on my don't be shy. Enjoy.

It is currently 51 degrees here in Minnesota….in FEBRUARY. What the lack-of-snow is going on here? I mean I am not complaining AT ALL. However, I am one of those who will clearly point out the fact we live in Minnesota and people are complaining about it snowing in April. It happens people…nothing new. But THIS….5o degrees is in fact new. I don’t mean to should flippant or even political…global warming? Hmmmm.

So as I am working on Miss Ashlyn’s order from her summer senior session. I am really getting spring fever, actually no, summer fever. And that is bad, not now, because snow will return when Mother Nature gets back to realizing it is in fact winter.

So I am sorry, not sorry for giving you a taste of summer with sharing her session. Which brings me to those juniors….NOW is the time to book to get the best dates, especially the summer dates. I am a higher volume small studio, I do shoot 4-6 sessions a week, but those dates fill really fast. Many are snatched up already. So, you should call. Now. I mean, it. 🙂

Me:  Can you see me if you look into the sun?

Her: Um…sure.

Me: Good enough. You will only be blind for a little while.

Minnesota girl, Minnesota tee. Check out Kindred People for the Sota brand and SO MUCH MORE. Seriously love those cute ladies at Kindred…especially a certain one named Danika. 🙂

 Thanks Ashlyn! I hope you have an awesome last few months of your senior year!

Just Jack.

Did you hear that Will & Grace is coming back?  One of my all time favorite shows is coming back! For those seniors who are reading this are probably thinking…who the heck are Will & Grace and what does Just Jack have to do with it? Well, since you can’t stream it anywhere…seriously I have looked. But you probably can find bootlegged episodes or crappy recorded ones on Youtube. I don’t advise it. You may be disappointed or get a virus or something. You probably need to buy the DVDs, or have the WE channel (which I do not). I have even called local rental stores to no avail. I just have to use my rusty memory for now.

So onto another Jack…here is some images from Jack’s fall session, which I remember feeling waaaaaaay more like winter.

We seriously shot his session until the street lights came on.

And there you go…I hope you are having an awesome senior year Jack!

It’s me again! I know, you are as shocked as I am that I am blogging twice in one month. Slow seasons are great for this. That and drinking copious amount of hot cocoa and reading cozy little books like the one I am reading now. I am pretty interested obsessed with all things Scandinavian over the past few years. Culture, design, clothing, even the politics. I have been told I am Swedish, Norwegian, Hungarian, and probably a couple other nationalities that I don’t know about. So, I heard of this thing called hygge  (pronounced hoo-ga), it kept popping up in some of the social medias I follow, and then I stumbled upon this cute little book; The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living  I am always intrigued by other cultures all over the country and world, people in just living their normal life is fascinating to me. And if they are in fact the happiest people on the planet, I want some of that! So hygge is a sort of hard to explain, so I have read, but it equates to coziness. But it is so much more than that. It is connection with those you like/love, the food, the clothing, the atmosphere and the light (huge factor, so I read). All things that I love as well! I keep half joking/half serious to my husband we need to move to Denmark. However, in parts of the country they get rain 252 days of the year…this may be a deal breaker. I need sunny skies. And my tribe, and I don’t think they want to move.


Onto Miss Marisa’s senior session this past fall. She completely lucked out with like 75 degree temps in November! Marisa being very shy and quiet, rocked her session. I hope I didn’t scare her with my loud voice and loud cackle laugh. Must not have been too bad, as this is how her images turned out. 🙂

My fav!

Thank you Marisa and mom Michelle for choosing me for your senior session. I hope your senior year has been the best yet!

Also, Class of 2018, dates are booking fast. If you are looking to book this summer, I would do it quickly…August is filling up!

The marathon is over. Photographers over the world took a deep breath and exhaled that we made it! Then comes January. Just as the stillness of winter, is my stillness of me not wanting to get off the couch. If I may be real here. The first couple weeks after the holidays I sorta want to hibernate. But that can’t happen, all the things that I want to get done during busy season gets on hold until now, like my poor neglected blog. I thought I would start going backwards through the year, starting with my last senior of 2016.

Miss Tracy. So stinking cute. She, too, has a love for photography. Smart girl that one. 🙂

We did her session the first part of November, at the last trail of peak autumn color. We totally took advantage of that, and the generosity of my friend Lisa’s front yard. 

Thank you for picking me to do your senior photos, Tracy!
