My goal as your photographer...

Getting in front of the camera is just not natural for everyone. I can attest to this personally. I am so often behind the camera that when I get in front of it I freeze up. My heart literally races, my palms sweat. I stress. I believe as photographers it is our job to help and reassure our clients – especially those little ones (and their parents)!

As a photographer I do get nervous. I think… a lot. What if they don’t love their images? What if they don’t like me? What if I do something embarrassing? Yes, I do think like that! Of course once I get to my session and begin working that unbelievably manages to fall away. I get completely immersed in my work. I remember why I love this. There are some things I do, however, to really prepare for my sessions.

My goal coming out of a session is to have images that tell a story. I want my clients to look through their gallery and have every single photo resonate with them on a deeper level. I want them to see their children as they see them. Not just as I see them. That is why it is so important to me as your photographer to take some time to talk to you – find out what kind of photographs you like, what you are looking for. It is also important that the day of your session, I take some time to make everyone comfortable, to have some fun! This is especially true when I am working with little ones. My goal is to give you not only memorable and beautiful photos but an equally memorable and beautiful experience.

We are back!

I have been around and doing shoots but haven't had much time to blog! I started a new job this year which has taken all my energy and on top of that I moved to Lake City Minnesota but now that things are settled, I am ready to get my groove back! Here are a few shoots that I have done over the past few months. I am looking forward to a busy fall - extending my service area. I will be continuing to work with my Twin Cities Clients but also will now be serving Southeastern Minnesota, so if you live in Red Wing, Lake City or The Rochester area - give me a call!
