BEHIND THE LENS

can i tell you a secret?

DISCOVERING PHOTOGRAPHY WAS A BIT OF A SURPRISE FOR ME




Through college, my early PR career in San Diego, then moving back home to Minnesota to start a family, I’ve always craved a way to blend creativity and entrepreneurship. But it wasn’t until I started taking photos of my own son that something clicked. I had that feeling that can’t be denied. 

Almost a decade later, I’ve continued to build my skills through mentorships with some of the best in the business, education and a true love for this calling of mine. Today, I work with both couples and families to create images that capture emotion, detail and movement to preserve a single moment in time.


Photography means you can. 

THESE ARE THE MEMORIES YOU’LL LONG TO relive OVER AND OVER.
