01. Background

I'm a homeschooling mama to three and a portrait photographer in southern Minnesota. I love people and any opportunity to be social and creative. Connecting with people is one reason why I love what I do. I delight in creating a captured memory for you to treasure.

In case you were curious...

  • My own wedding was planned in four months, and we had no budget for a photographer.  And I wish I had valued photography more than any part of my wedding day (other than my husband!).
  • I have two boys and a girl - 8, 6 and 3 years old.
  • I homeschool and sometimes think I must be crazy.
  • Golden Retrievers have a soft spot in my heart.  We've had 4 of them!
  • I met my would-be-husband when we were about 16, even though we lived over 3 hours apart.
  • My brain swaps the words "Green" and "Orange" and I will often unknowingly say the wrong one (Yes, I know the difference between them).
  • I love music but am not musical and have no rhythm.  It doesn't stop me from dancing though.
