I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was to find myself in a session location that looked nothing short of a fairy tale! Combined with two beautiful mommas to be, it was impossible to not produce fabulous photos. Thank you Erin for finding the spot and to Andrew for pretending to be having a good time ;) Even Ryker had a great day! And to include sister-in-law Dru was a wonderful, unique photo op.

Never underestimate the power of water – or in this case the power of water and ice! While the Nashwaak River brings peace and enjoyment for the majority of the year, it reserves the right to remind those that live near it’s banks that it can be a force to be reckoned with. Hopefully the worst has happened this spring season and the residents of Stanley and areas down-river can quickly get back to feeling secure near the river they love.

There are many events in life we often wished we had captured. We would never think to get married without photographs, hopefully by a professional. Sometimes we forget to capture those other memories that are equally as important. The Tomilson family recently celebrated the 85th birthday of their mother, grandmother and great-grandmother – Cherry. It was a wonderful occasion celebrated by family and friends, creating (and capturing) memories that will last well beyond a lifetime!

When you have eyes as wonderful as Mirriah! Smiles are definitely not necessary. I am sitting in my studio between sessions but can’t help taking a few minutes before my next 6 month old arrives to post this photo from this morning. Wow…

Seriously! How sweet is this child? This family walked into my studio and lit up the room. All I could think was how lucky Brooklyn was to come from a family with such energy. I felt good even after they left! What a pleasure…

I could fill a page about this wonderful session with this awesome and funny couple! But there are no words that would be as powerful as the images produced. There is love…

It has been a crazy two months in my world! And I mean crazy!! The last few weeks have been closer to insane. I have managed to keep on top of my 3 jobs and my kids (although my housework has it’s days of neglect). There was a point where I was in danger of falling behind due to circumstances beyond my control but thanks to Shelley Humble, I was able to keep it together and keep my clients happy. Thank you Shelley!! I hope the photos of your kids and nephews are everything you hoped for.

Since I have a beautiful niece named Bronwyn I started out with a soft spot for this other little Bronwyn beauty! You can’t imagine how fun it is to have a 4 year old who is in the mood to pose! Starting with her awesome Christmas dress, through her preppy sweater dress and boots, into her holiday jammies and finally showcasing her wonderful volleyball talent, it was an hour and a half of easy shooting! This session was the perfect ending to a very long day. Thank you Regina for your first time visit to my studio!

Is there anything more exciting than your first Christmas with your first baby? Probably not. Matt and Rhonda are super excited about spending Christmas with the lovely little Lauren, and who could blame them? The holiday season promises to be the best they’ve ever had. With those eyes and that smile combined with one of the prettiest Christmas dresses I have ever seen, Lauren is for sure the best present they will ever receive.

The start of the holiday season is marked in many ways and it’s different for most people. The beginning of Christmas for me is having little girls start showing up in my studio in their very best Christmas dresses. Perhaps I enjoy this so much because I have only boys, and these excited little faces dressed in their holiday best has never been part of my tradition!


When mom Whitney told me Morgan would be arriving in a gold dress I knew I’d try something different from the traditional Christmas backdrop! Good choice I think…
