SOMETIMES THE SMALLEST THINGS TAKE UP THE MOST ROOM IN YOUR HEART | Winnie the Pooh

I'm the girl who can't eat a bite of cereal without milk running down her chin. My husband shakes his head and laughs when he sees food crumbs and spills all over my shirt because he knows, that's how I roll.

But I'm also the girl who can laugh at herself, too. I'm a dork. I laugh at everything. Life is funny. Life is short. Life is sweet.

It's probably why I do what I do. I love documenting these funny, short and sweet moments for my clients. I love photographing their little people before the moment is gone and can no longer be captured. I'm a bit of a time machine wizard, I suppose.

When I'm not photographing the cutest babies in the whole world (or in the Twin Cities), I'm doing your typical mom things; Target runs, volunteering at my son's school, endless cleaning and cooking while squeezing in cheesy Netflix movies I know my husband would never watch with me.

I'm also fiercely competitive when it comes to board games like Trivial Pursuit, especially movie and music trivia, which happens to be my specialty. Pictionary on the other hand; not so much. But I can draw a pretty good stick family.

I promise I won't draw yours. Take your pictures? That I can do.

Background:

I’m a Minnesota native and absolutely love this state! My favorite holiday is the Minnesota State Fair (that’s a holiday, right?)

I’ve been married to my super awesome hard-working husband for over 10 years and we have one fabulous son, Kyle.

Kyle has Cystic Fibrosis. His diagnosis led me to be a stay-at-home turned work-from-home Mom.

As a former daycare teacher, I have extensive experience in early childhood education and care. Along with the knowledge, expertise and experience in newborn handling, posing and safety.

I have almost 10 years experience in photography and 7+ years as a Professional Photographer. This is the longest job I’ve ever had and I truly, truly love it!

In 2015, I made the switch to solely work with newborns, babies and maternity clients. I’ve been honored to make the Expertise Top Minneapolis Newborn Photographers list every year since 2016.

I love cheese, wine and a really good steak dinner; all 3 of which I could probably eat every day (following a low-carb diet makes it a little easier to do). In my spare time I love to read, work out and spend time with my family. I also LOVE to travel!
