S & D Sunset Engagement Session ~ MN/WI Professional Photographer

I am so honored to be to be this couples photographer for their wedding day in 2014.  It is so exciting to see their plans come together and I have had fun each time we get together to plan the day and get to know one another.  We had rain at the beginning of our engagement session and were hoping to not have to cancel the session in Downtown Hudson, WI .  Good thing we did not cancel because we were so lucky with what followed after the rain….some gorgeous sun….EEEK! (For those of you that know me…I get a little giddy with gorgeous light).  This couple makes me laugh and they are so much in love with each other it is simply beautiful.  I keep asking myself…is this really my job…because I LOVE IT!  Hope you enjoy!


Summer Fun with a Family Session ~ Twin Cities Professional Family Photography

We had gorgeous weather for this session after many days of rain here in MN and WI.  Their adorable dog joined us for the family photos and he was so good for the session.  These two girls made me smile the entire session and my cheeks hurt from laughing.  They are full of personality and during the session were full of giggles.  I always try to make my sessions fun and interactive with the family and the children and I had a blast getting to know this family.  I was able to capture a few photos at the end of Mom and Dad and loved that I got them to laugh and smile for some great photos!  Hope you enjoy!

Commissioning Ceremony ~ Twin Cities Professional Photographer

I had the honor of being asked to capture Kevin’s ceremony for commissioning as an Officer.  I am humbled by those who serve for our country.  Kevin is my cousins husband and their family will be making many moves and changes in the upcoming months moving to Quantico, VA.  I wish them the very best and will be there for them through the changes as well as the ups and downs of their life together with the service.  I look forward to watching Kevin serve in the Marine Corps and the strength and courage he demonstrates with serving for our country.  Thank you to all of those who currently serve or have served for our country.  You are all honorable, devoted individuals and “Thank you” seems so little to say.

Introducing Baby Maxwell 4 days new ~ Professional Newborn Photographer Twin Cities MN

I just love newborns!  I had so much fun meeting Megan and Bob weeks before their arrival of their baby boy.  They kept the names and gender a surprise for all friends and family.  Maxwell Robert was 8 lbs 2 oz when born and 20.5 inches long. He was so much fun to photograph and had his opinions on posing he liked best but did sleep well for me and we were able to do a variety of posing and props.  I hope you enjoy this adorable handsome little boy!  I look forward to watching him grow!



Sally and Devon’s Wedding Day ~ MN/WI Professional Wedding Photographer

Sally and Devon chose a May wedding day because they wanted to avoid the hot summer heat but they never expected 10 inches of snow 2 days before their wedding.  We lucked out with warmer temperatures and not a snow storm for their beautiful day and were able to capture many of their photos outside.  The wedding was in Eau Claire, WI and the reception was at Fanny Hill in Eau Claire, WI.  I had so much fun at this wedding and truly enjoyed getting to know Sally and Devon with their planning and on their big day. They are both very intelligent young people who have so much love to share with each other.  I wish you both much love and happiness on this new journey together! Thank you for letting me be apart of your day.
