Portrait Sessions

Location & Lifestyle Portraits.

Portraits are done in all four seasons, outdoors, in your home, or at another unique location.   I really enjoy traveling around the Twin Cities and Minnesota for photography.  Visiting new spots, meeting cool people, and introducing  you to my favorite locations is fun!

Portraits are unposed and spontaneous.  We will do activities to create a fun experience with natural expressions.  We’ll capture portraits that are true to your personalities.  We’ll create photography together that you can look back on with a smile.

What's Included in Your Portrait Package:

A shareable online gallery, download of high resolution files & full permission to print your pictures is included with your portrait session.  You have options to order prints and special items like albums, greeting cards, and framed canvas or prints from me.

Full Portrait Sessions are 275.

I have a special package for your Maternity + Newborn portraits.

Short sessions for when you just need a few great pictures are also available.  Contact me for more details on short sessions.


A retainer and signed Client Agreement are required to book your portraits.

Yes I do.  I offer lifestyle newborn sessions.  These portraits will be done in your home, most often in the baby’s nursery, or your family living space between 1-2 weeks after birth.  Posing for newborns is natural and safe.  I do not put newborns in baskets or boxes.  Minimal props are used.  The focus is on your baby, details of your nursery, and bonding time together as a family, including older children.

I specialize in photography on location. I shoot portraits in all seasons, even in the snow.   I know many indoor and outdoor locations, and together we will come up with the right location for you.  I have traveled to client’s homes, favorite indoor spots, their cabins, a favorite lake, even a hockey rink.

What you wear depends on our location and your personal style.  I can give you suggestions during our pre-shoot consult.  You can read my What To Wear Guide Here.
