Lauren + Matt were a dream to work with. From her glittered gown to a surprise sunset after a cloudy day, the stars aligned to make this day sparkle. And sparkle she did.  The two were married at Silverwood Park, in St. Anthony, Minn. an outdoor oasis nestled in the city. Guests embraced the naturally […]

A beloved barn and his beautiful bride is all Brad, the cattle man, needed. Cara wanted pictures with a calf on her wedding day. Fitting for a couple who were engaged in a barn with calves literally popping the question.

When Adam + Elle arrived for their session on the trails in beautiful Hay Creek, it was an early, unseasonably cool summer morning. Matching the morning’s rarity in temps was also the unseasonable mood of their son, three year-old Brooks. Full disclosure, I adore this family. Long time clients and even longer acquaintances, the family […]

The mostest + 1. It’s like better than the best. That’s exactly how I could sum up the wedding of Sabrina and Brandon. It’s also exactly what the two say to each other to express their love … “I love you the mostest + 1.”

Capturing Kelly + Josh’s love in still photos was much more than a typical session. The photos were taken earlier this year – on their original wedding date.

Their wedding was suppose to be this past weekend at the gorgeous Carlos Creek Winery in Alexandria, Minn. But as fate turns out, their spring wedding will […]

This week marked both Earth Day and National Arbor Day and at least in Wisconsin, the weather was on our side. Mother Nature means the world to me. I was raised to love her and have never let go. Growing up, my mom was like the queen of road tripping to the American West where […]

Not even sure if it’s been a long month or not, but I do know one thing — the kids have been out of school for 23 days now. Just this week, Governor Tony Evers announced that all schools in the state of Wisconsin will remain closed through the end of the school year due […]

As a child, I adored “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” by Beatrix Potter. Maybe because my dad’s name is Peter and one of our dog’s names was McGregor, named after Mr. McGregor of course, but also because I loved the naughtiness of such a cute bunny. The irony is now I have my own Peter. […]
