This fall, Sleeklens reached out to me to review their workflow and give an honest opinion on their editing workflows.

I spent a little time getting to know the presets, playing with each image and each preset to find my favorites, and to see how well the presets worked for my editing style and techniques. Read More...

Greta is my first newborn session in Minnesota, and she was a blast. I got tons of babe snuggles and cuddles, and was just so much fun!

Greta was wide awake and wiggly for her session! She was wiggling around so much, even in her wrap that we had to be very careful with what poses we were able to use with her.  Safety is always the highest priority, so if she is wiggling and not sleeping hard, I just won't put babe in fancy poses.

September 23rd, 2017. The second day of fall in south central Minnesota. The threat of rain storms were present throughout the day, raining the night before and sprinkling on and off throughout the day. Friends and family from near and far gathered in Redwood Falls Minnesota to celebrate Mckayla and Case, as they said their vows in front of the packed church.Read more...

The heavy smoke from the Montana fires was thick in the air, while combines were working to harvest crops in the fields next to the Yellowstone River in Sidney Montana.  Fall is a busy time of year for all farm and ranch families, and that was no different for the Nagle family. Read More...

2017 has been a year of drought, fire and devastation for Montana. As heartbroken as everyone was to have this glorious outdoor wedding moved indoors, we were all thankful and happy to have the rain. Read More...

I grew up in the badlands of eastern Montana, getting lost in the romance, beauty and grace of this glorious rough country. This couple was a perfect match to have their session done in such a gorgeous location, with an amazing smoky sunset on the horizon.

September 15th 2017 | Children Photography

The late summer heat of eastern Montana was very apparent and strong today, during our session with sweet Taelyn.  T was sure shy, and really wasn't sure about that crazy lady with the camera, but we were able to get her to open up and give us a few shy smiles.  The sun was peaking through the dense smoke and trees, to create a really gorgeous glow.  Read More...

September 9th, 2017 | Wedding Photography

It was a hot September day in Montana. The smoke from the wildfires up west was creeping into the horizon, while the Montana breeze was offering the only relief from the summer heat. The ceremony was small, intimate and straight from the heart.

August 19th, 2017 |Senior Portraits Photography

A week of rain, storms and chaos as I made the move with my fiance to Hector Minnesota. Austin had reached out to me prior to my move to be one of my "Senior Reps", which is just one of my elite Seniors that promotes my business at the local schools. Of course  I was honored to be able to meet some new people, especially so quickly after my move.

It was an amazing North Dakota evening. The long  drought was coming to an end, with the short summer  rain storm just coming to an end moments before our photo session was scheduled to begin. The rain storm was much appreciated, as the pastures and fields were beginning to show us how beautiful North Dakota can really be.

August 2nd, 2017 | Photography

I started my photography path as a small child with a film camera in my local 4-H program. From there my family gifted me my first digital camera, which was a simple point and shoot Nikon.

 

My passion is photography, and I want to share that with anyone who shows interest. Because of that, I want to share my gear bag, what I plan to add to my bag in the future and how I chose what equipment to purchase in the beginning. Read More...

Baby Wesley  has seriously been the best newborn I have ever had. He was a true trooper. 

I was so excited to welcome Wesley and his family into my home for his newborn photos, as newborns are my favorite subjects.

It was a bitter sweet session for me, because it would be my last session in my studio in North Dakota before I made the move to Minnesota.  Wesley was absolutely wonderful.  Read more...

July 24th 2017 | Family Photography

This family was absolutely adorable. We had one of the hottest days of the year, and holy buckets, we were all feeling it.

Both the kiddos were just miserable. None the less, we were able to get some good smiles, some happy giggles and some gorgeous photos.

 

I love being able to capture  some photos of mom and dad too. Read more ...

July 16th, 2017 | Children Photography

Rowdy is a wild child at heart. This kid is fearless, independent and a hoot to photograph. I don't think I will ever meet a child that I love to photograph as much as this guy.

 

 

Not only are mom and dad creative, tied to their roots and apparently pros at creating ADORABLE babies, they are just flat amazing people. Read more...

Dan and Danyell have a love for each other like none other. I ran into Dan before the wedding, buying beer, which if we all know Dan, is exactly what he would be doing on his wedding day.

 

As he shook my hand and thanked me for traveling to his wedding, I recognized how excited and how happy this man was to be getting ready to marry the love of his life. Read more...

It was a gorgeous June day in the far east corner of eastern Montana. The howling wind that had plagued the region for days prior to the wedding had subsided, and revealed a truly serene, beautiful scene.

 

Natasha's makeup was out of this world. Her professional talents are mind blowing, and created a gorgeous look that was straight out of a magazine. Read more...
