Your portraits are about you.

Having a portrait session is about more than just smiling at the camera. Your portraits are an experience that celebrates who you naturally are. The story of your life, your family, your business. You need portraits to capture these stories.

Preparedness plan update for portrait sessions:

As Minnesota re-opens many guidelines/mandates are changing.  I will do everything I can to provide an awesome portrait session for you.  This includes following any state or federal mandates in place at the time of your session.


Reschedule policy: When anyone participating in portraits feels unwell for any reason we need to reschedule for a time when everyone is feeling well.

 

FAQS

• How do we book you?

Send me a message so we can have a conversation about what you want for portraits, and we'll choose the best session option for you. Then you'll book through my online client portal. A retainer and signed portrait agreement are required in advance to reserve your appointment.

• Do we get our files?

Yes. All sessions come with print-worthy digitals and permission to use them almost any way you want.

• Do you edit these?

Yes. I do artistic color correction, natural skin softening, and removal of minor blemishes. I don’t do things like give you a tan, change your hair color, or drastically modify your body.

• Where are you located?

I'm halfway between Minneapolis & Mankato, in Belle Plaine. I specialize in lifestyle and location portraits, which means portraits are usually done somewhere besides a studio.

• Can you travel to us?

Yes! Travel for the Twin Cities Metro or Mankato is included. For travel farther, there may be a travel fee so let's talk about what you need.

• How many clothing changes do we get?

Generally, we have time for 1 outfit per 30 minutes of portraits. If you need more clothing changes let's talk about it.

• Can we bring pets?

Yes! Tell me right away if you want to include your pets and let's pick a location that allows pets. I also recommend bringing an extra person to take care of your pet or take them home when their portraits are done.

• Do we need a photography permit?

Some locations do require professional photographers to have a permit. Permit fees will be in addition to your session fee. I'll let you know if we need one for your chosen location before you book. I can also suggest fee-free spots.

• Do we have to buy prints?

When you want a few long-lasting professional prints, or you're so busy there's no time to DIY it's easy to order prints or canvas through the print store in your gallery. For orders of custom-designed greeting cards and albums, you can order directly from me.

• Do you offer indoor or studio portraits?

I can do indoor portraits at your home or business. Studio rental is an option, and there are several spaces around the metro we can use. In this case, a rental fee will be added to your portrait package.
