Lifestyle portraits show you being your amazing self.

Portraits are natural, with posing that looks unposed.  I direct your photoshoot with prompts and activities to help you get the best expressions and have fun while doing it.  We’ll capture pictures that are true to your personality.

 I photograph engagements, headshots, families, and businesses.  All photoshoots are done on location at your home, office, or favorite spot.

If you’re not sure where to have portraits we’ll talk about what you like and find a place that matches your style.  I know many great locations across the Minneapolis, St. Paul and Mankato areas.

Portrait Session Details

Simple and easy.

Portraits are 275 for up to 1 hour of photography.

Newborn portraits are 375 for up to 2 hours in your home.

Your photoshoot includes a download of professionally edited high-resolution files with full permission to print and share your pictures.

If you only need one or two good shots, Quick Portraits of 15 minutes are available Thursday nights in April-November.   Info and sign up click here.


• Where do our portraits take place?

I specialize in lifestyle and location portraits, which means portraits are done somewhere besides a studio. I travel to your home, your business, outdoor and indoor locations around the Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Mankato areas.

• Do we need to order prints?

You have full permission to print your pictures yourself. I offer optional print ordering through your gallery, as well as professional products like cards and albums. I want you to print your pictures in the way that's easy for you.

• Do you have props?

I like to keep shoots simple, and prefer natural posing without props. If you have meaningful personal items you want to use in your pictures you are welcome to bring them.

• How do we book?

Contact me and we'll talk about your shoot. When you book, a reservation fee and signed online client form is due to confirm your appointment. Portraits are booked on a first come, first served basis, and I do not hold dates without a reservation fee.


Pictures were beautifully done! We love them! We appreciate the patience in trying to work with our dogs also as was important to us to get that family photo before the little one arrived! Thank you so much!!!
