Blades Family | Wildflower Session | Minnesota Family Photographer

The Blades family was one of my very first clients back when I was a photographer in Florida. That was almost ten years ago! When I first photographed their family they only had one child and he was a toddler. It was so great to see them again and see that they added a daughter to the mix too! They are such a gorgeous, photogenic family. They sure make my job easy.

I started my photography business back in 2009 in Gainesville, Florida. In the few years that I was there I grew quite the loyal client base. In 2012 my family moved back to my home state of Minnesota, it was so hard to leave behind all those families. Over the years I had made connections and friendships with these families. I knew someday that I would return to Florida to photograph my clients again. Last spring I threw the idea out there and the response was overwhelming. I couldn’t believe how many people wanted me to be their family photographer again! So a trip was planned, and many sessions were booked.

I knew I wanted to time my trip with wildflower season, and the I couldn’t have timed it better. The wildflower field is one of my favorite places I have ever been. It truly is a magical site, it is a photographer’s dream come true. The flowers were right at peak when I was there and I had perfect weather to boot! I look forward to doing this again sometime in the future. 


Fall Mini Sessions | Minnesota Photographer

It’s almost the most magical time of year again in Minnesota, fall! I love photographing families, couples, and children so much in this season. This year I am offering two dates, and two locations. 20 minutes, 10 edited images, with the option to purchase more for $250. Mini sessions are for immediate family only.

There will be sessions offered October 12th and 14th. The October 12th sessions will take place at Grams Regional Park in Zimmerman. The October 14th sessions will take place at Lake Maria State Park, this park is about a 30-35 minute drive for my St. Cloud and Zimmerman clients. Please note that there is a fee to get into Lake Maria State Park.

I took our family photos at Grams Regional Park last year, and there are a few more examples in the fall slideshow.

If you are looking for epic fall photos I recommend Lake Maria, it is one of the most beautiful fall displays I have ever seen. The maple trees make a stunning yellow backdrop.

Senior Picture Photography | St. Cloud, Minnesota


Such a fun session with Miss Audrey! Did you know that senior picture photography is my specialty, and my favorite subject to photograph? We started Audrey’s session at my favorite urban spot in St. Cloud, Minnesota. I love the backgrounds this place has to offer. It has really great brick structures and awesome windows, and colors. Audrey slayed the session here, I love her heels and romper look, she rocked it and looks totally gorgeous!

From there we went to the Sauk Rapids bridge to get a different look. This place is so fun to photograph with all the different dimensions the bridge has to offer. I also love that I can then incorporate the river which is such a huge part of Minnesota life.

Our last stop was just a pretty dirt road I found in Sartell, the sun sets directly behind it and it was lined with lush green corn fields. While I know most people wouldn’t think of a corn field as a place to take pics, I think they make an awesome backdrop. Plus it is such a part of being a Minnesotan and Minnesota life. The sky did not disappoint that day!

Did you know that I am now booking for summer? My weeks are already filling up so don’t wait until the end of the summer to book your portraits.
