Trips to the North Shore are always beautiful opportunities for light, playful portraits. I especially love the way Victoria lights up a room with her smile and positive energy.
It was SO fun much working with Duluth Pack. Previous to working with them, I'd always make sure I made a stop in their shop in Duluth on my way up the North Shore. They have the most durable and amazing backpacks and bags, plus a ton more outdoor equipment. This shoot was one of my favorites because of the way I could use the color of the nature surrounding us and morning light to really make the products pop.
Bamboo Revolution is a gorgeous watch company based out of Cape Town, South Africa whose watches are all made of bamboo. I played around with natural tones and light to capture the simplicity and beauty of their watches. Loved collaborating with this company!
This set of photos is from a trip to NYC for a school trip back in 2016. I had already heard so much about NYC and seen so many incredible photos from there and was more than ready to check it out. We obviously had to go to all the big, touristy places(although sometimes I wish we didn't...next time!), such as Central Park, The MET, the Top of the Rock, Times Square, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Thinking of all these places whilst on my flight got me feeling a little adventurous. So I pulled out an old National Geographic Magazine that I'd bought for one dollar at an old bookstore. All of a sudden as I opened the pages, this little travel guide of NYC fell out. It's like it knew where I was going. Crazy how things work like that. I can't wait to go back to this city.
I got an opportunity to be on the photography team for Sonshine Festival in 2016. At this time I had never really shot a full out concert let alone a huge festival so it was totally a new experience. But it was so worth it considering I worked along side some amazing local photographers. I learned so much from doing this - like anticipating when the artist is about to do something amazing, and when everything slides perfectly together in time - the lights, fog, the way the artist is waiting for the perfect chance to surprise the crowd and put them in awe, it all comes together. This is when the emotion of the music and the art of photography become one.
I adore Jaz's hilarious, creative and seriously just wonderful energy. We've grown up together at church since we were just little girls. She's such a great human to have in my life. Also - a wonderful photographer (her instagram: jazzyjaz19) LOVE her.
Such a fun Senior shoot with this sweet girl, Lylah!
Something I truly love is capturing moments in time. Especially when traveling.

I took some photos at the Coffee Cottage in Mahtomedi, MN to show off their lovely shop. So fun playing with the lightand color that pours in while capturing the coziness of a coffee shop.
Days like this day remind me that the little things are so powerful. Like running through the rain with your friend, laughing at yourself, reliving old memories - it's what makes life so worth worth.
I love capturing people amidst color and light. I think it creates a certain amount of depth and character to a photo. Love love love this set.
Playing with depth is something I find so interesting and can add so much to a photo. It makes me feel as if it's like your watching a memory over again as it creates a more dream-like photo that draws you in.
Congrats to Ashley and Greg! Such a lovely day for an engagement shoot.
A little adventure around Eau Claire, Wisconsin - more photos and stories about this day up my blog!
This was a foggy, brisk, and windy northern Minnesota morning. In fact, it was so foggy on the two and half hour drive up that I wasn't sure if we could make it up because we could barely see! But alas - we made it. We adventured around the lovely city of Duluth, getting coffee, shopping around, checking out Two Harbors and hiking in Gooseberry Falls State Park. Then we may or may not have checked out the casino late at night before we left because we had done so much and we were exhausted. ANYWAYS - This is Jake, in Canal Park, as the city disappears in to the fog and the waves crash on the shore. I felt like I had to capture this, soaked in all it's beauty.
Loved second shooting at this beautiful wedding. Congrats Charlie & Becca!
Kate is such a lovely, supportive, hilarious and bubbly person, I'm SO happy that I was able to shoot her senior pictures! She's such a good friend to have.
