I had an absolute blast on this family shoot – the little guy up there just turned three, and he is the smiliest, happiest kid around (just scroll through the photos below to see what I mean!). As summer is winding down (it’s 60 degrees this morning! What?!), family shoots are starting to fill my schedule a bit more, which I love! If you are looking for a session, I still have availability in September and October, so send me a note and we can get you on the calendar!


jack attack!

This is Jack! He’s 11 years old and was rescued last year by his sweet and wonderful parents who adore him to pieces and brought him in for a photo session. We had so much fun with this feisty guy! Here are a few images to celebrate Jack.

For your internet shares of the day:

+ This summer dessert looks amazing! I am saying out loud that I will make this in August. Hold me accountable.

+ I never thought I would consider a cruise. But here I am…

+ I adore the story of Robin Hood and have since I was about 5 years old, but no one has ever done it better than this version. Until now?


that dalmation I love

Remember that sweet boy Lincoln? I had him back in the studio last month for a personal project. Yeah, he’s still super adorable.

At this point, I could blog multiple times a day with babies, families and dogs (whew, is it busy around here!), but I keep forgetting to show you this image, so here you go. It’s darker than my usual style, which is what I wanted to experiment with.

For your internet shares:

+ A few thoughts on Roe v. Wade.

+ Hilarious photos of squirrels.

+ I watched this show this morning and it was delightful. It’s project runway meets comedy meets crafters and I loved it. Plus, Amy Poehler, who I adore. Enjoy!

baby on the way!

This past weekend, I had a maternity shoot with a couple I adore. A couple whose wedding I photographed last fall, as you might remember! They are expecting an adorable little person in the next few weeks, and we wanted to document that.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from the night.

For your internet shares of the day:

+ Amazing photos all shot on an iPhone! 

+ Oh yeah. Global warming is a total hoax. Sure.

+ And speaking of that, it’s good to see the death eaters are even turning on voldemort. (If you don’t understand that reference, go read Harry Potter this very instant.)

This weekend we finally made it to my favorite farmer’s market in town — the Mill City Market. They have a wonderful selection of food trucks etc for breakfast, great produce, fabulous flowers and other great items, like the beautiful market bag I bought.

Ezra loved visiting the Guthrie Theater next door and riding the huge escalators as well as visiting the 9th floor amber room (yellow windows make for yellow photos!).

The rest of the weekend was spent enjoying the weather, grocery shopping, cleaning the house and our Sunday night movie, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Not many internet shares today, but you can read my piece in the Sunday paper about our trip to San Francisco. And the sidebar! Enjoy!
