A little about me and my studio………
I’m a wife (coming up on year 5!), mom of two tiny barbarians named James (whose middle name is Danger -literally) and Jack (whose middle name is Mayhem) honestly I’m not sure what were we thinking. It’s really no wonder my children are little animals. I’m also a lover of really good food, coffee with cream, and lazy mornings with my kids.
I started my photography business when left my job running a Montessori School because I wanted more time with my child- I felt I was missing too much. But I soon learned staying home left me wanting something that was just mine. I was so worried that when my kids eventually left me I would be lost. So……. I started a business since I had already been enrolled in photography classes. It gave me the freedom to work when I choose and to create something that was just for me. Truth is- all I’ve ever done is work with families and kids so I also needed something where I was still able to have these connections with families and kids. I know that I would not be impacting lives the same way but I would still be giving them memories that would last a lifetime. And this, too made my heart happy.
I take pride in the fact that I make deep connections with clients I work with. I aim capture these fleeting moments in time that go by all too fast. Let’s be real- we blink and another year has gone by. Whether you are looking for posed, candid or lifestyle I would love to connect and see if we would be a good fit. I promise to do my best getting your kid to smile and make you feel so comfortable you will forget that you’re having pictures taken.
I hope to connect with you soon and help to capture memories you will cherish forever.
I am constantly adding to our client wardrobe. I have gowns for moms and mamas to be (all sizes and shapes), newborns galore and some sitter and child outfits. Most of the wardrobe is handmade and I make a conscious effort to support small businesses like my own.
I am a fan of all things simple and beautiful. I stay away from clothes that will be distracting and anything that will date. I want your images to look good on your wall tomorrow and well as 10 years from now.
My In Home Studio
I am beyond blessed to have a in home studio at this point in my life. With two small children this allows me to spend as much time possible with my boys and still be able to work. My studio is located in South Minneapolis in the Kingfield neighborhood.
I invite you into my home to relax. Have a coffee or sparkling water. Taking pictures DOES NOT have to be stressful. It really can be fun, especially when I’m taking pictures.
