Q. Where are you located?
A. Bloomington, MN (outside of Minneapolis by 15 minutes)
Q. Where do our "in studio" sessions take place?
A. At my in home studio! I love that everyone is more relaxed and at ease in a home rather than in a commercial space.
Q. Are you a full service studio?
A. Yes I am! I offer my clients pre-consultations to get to know one another as well as wardrobe planning and viewing sessions to order their products. Start to finish, I have my clients want and needs in mind to make sure they get the most out of their session!
Q. Didn't you used to be a wedding photographer?
A. I did! Thanks for noticing! My business, just like myself, is always evolving and as my life chapters took me into motherhood, so did what I capture from behind the camera. Even though I no longer do wedding photography, I've used all the education and training I've had over the years to apply the same talent and love to photographing your legacy.
Q. How long have you been a photographer?
A. "Officially" 7 years. "Unofficially" since I used my allowance at sam's club to make prints from my film camera when I was 10 years old.
Maternity sessions take place both in studio and on location, mixing lighting techniques with the outdoors and close to nature make maternity sessions enjoyable and exciting! Mama's usually book their session in their first or second trimester! I require no additional Creative Fee Deposit if you book your maternity session with your Birth Story or Newborn Session. I have a fully stocked wardrobe closet we will use to style your session, all items are sized for maternity mamas to make you look and feel beautiful.
Birth stories are one of my absolute favorite offerings. Being present to witness and photograph the first breathe of life your child takes leaves me teary eyed and inspired every single time. Being able to look back on the birth of your child for a lifetime is absolutely priceless. I am on call from 37 weeks until you deliver baby and take on 10 birth stories a year. Being able to look back on the first moments of your little ones life is priceless, it's a way to make those moments that we forget in the excitement of it all, permanent.
I absolutely love photographing newborns at their tiniest stage in life. Everyone says it, but no one realizes, how quickly they change. I capture my newborns within the first 14 days of life and offer both lifestyle newborn sessions (done in your home) or studio newborn sessions (done at my home studio). I love creating beautiful imagery for my clients, of their beautiful babies, to hang as art in their homes for years to come.
