So, what is a “natural light lifestyle photographer?” Well, the “natural light” part just means I rely on sunlight for my lighting – no flashes or lighting equipment. I love finding that perfect golden sunlight, shining through the trees, over the water, or through your window, to accentuate your already beautiful moments. For this reason, timing of the shoots is everything (but you can leave that part up to me).
And as for the “lifestyle” bit, that just means I like to capture moments of you and your loved ones interacting naturally. I try to take a healthy balance of real-life in-the-moment shots, as well as those quintessential posed shots (you know, for Grandma and the Christmas card and such) but it’s those genuine interactions and everyday snapshots that really get me click-happy behind the camera.
I believe everyone deserves to have high-quality pictures to document those important life milestones, as well as the simple, everyday moments that can pass us by so quickly. Afterall, pictures have the ability to freeze time, to capture those fleeting days, our sweet memories that can otherwise be forgotten. Pictures can be saved, and shared, and passed down, for generations. Photography is a passion of mine, and I want to be able to share it with as many people as possible. For that reason, it is important for me to provide you with high-quality images that are as affordable as possible. Sessions start at $150. For more information on pricing, shoot me a message below.
I only do a few newborn sessions each year. These sessions take place in your home, last up to 2 hours, and can include your whole family. Recommended within baby’s first seven days of life. Please be sure to book in advance as there is very limited availability for these sessions (even though we likely won’t be able to set a specific date until baby arrives).
An in hospital shoot that takes place within 48 hours after baby’s birth. This is a chance to capture some of your very first, intimate moments with your precious newborn. Please be sure to book in advance (although baby’s arrival will ultimately decide the final date and time), as I only have very limited availability for these sessions!
COUPLES // FAMILY // CHILDREN // MATERNITY
These are ideally outdoor sessions, but we can do them indoors as well, if you prefer (after all, this is Minnesota, and we all know the weather isn’t always ideal to be outside). I have a few go-to locations around the south metro or we can head to a location of your choice. These sessions are very customizable, depending on what it is you’re looking for/your vision for the photos. Shoot me an email below and we can talk details or discuss any questions you might have!
I occasionally offer seasonal 25-minute mini sessions. These will be posted over on my Facebook page, so be sure to follow along for updates!
