Hi everyone! I live in Greenfield, Minnesota with my husband Brian and our 4 children ages 6-21.
I have loved photography pretty much my whole life. My father was into photography so I grew up with a darkroom in the basement and he taught me to develop film and prints. I have so many happy memories spending time with my Dad doing something we both enjoyed so much.
After many years working in Minneapolis as a Paralegal and homeschooling my older children, I launched a part time portrait photography business about 5 years ago.
I love photographing High School Seniors and families, and am passionate about making portraits and capturing images that show women and girls in particular how beautiful they are.
My Senior Sessions are high energy, fast moving and fun! A session I did a few weeks ago ranks right up at the top of my list. I had photographed Rachel a few years ago so I knew she was easygoing and would be fun to work with for her Senior Photos. We live in a rural area and her session reflected that with a beautiful "country" look. She booked my longest session so we had time to go to several different locations. We started in a wheat field, went on to a beautiful local property with a pretty driveway and fencing, and ended at her home on the river for some shots by the water. She came prepared with awesome clothes, beautiful hair and makeup, and a friend who turned out to be a top notch assistant!
I dropped a speed light in the river during her session but we carried on and got great images anyway. Note - After I got home I tried putting it in a container with rice. I hear all the time about how people save their phones that have gotten wet with this trick. It did not work. And then after 5 days - SUCCESS! It turned on and is good as new.
Rachel's photos are beautiful, and I'm thrilled to share some of them with you here.
