Built in the late 1800's, my studio is home to great history & memories. A childhood dream was realized when I opened my boutique style photography studio loft in this unique space filled with character. The space combined with our location in the quaint downtown area of Hudson, WI offers the capability for custom photography sessions indoors in addition to personalized on-location sites. My signature portrait style consists of simple,

yet strong composition resulting in images that are both honest and highly emotive. Foregoing stiff poses and forced smiles, I interact with subjects in such a way that unveils their distinct personalities. This approach combined with exquisite attention to detail provides for a comfortable and relaxed photo session and extraordinary images.

Christmas Wishes

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday season.  I’ll be taking a two-week vacation to visit my family and will answer all e-mails and phone calls when I return.  In the meantime, I’d like to share a slideshow I made showcasing the clients I had the joy of working with over the past year.  Just click on the image below to view the slideshow.

Jolly…

I can’t think of a better word than “jolly” to describe this little boy.  He was nothing but smiles and coo’s throughout the entire photo session.  Gotta’ love those jolly, happy souls!

Congratulations Brittany… | Hudson, Wisconsin high school senior portraits

I just wanted to send a huge CONGRATULATIONS to Miss Brittany.  I featured her on the blog back in August and look at her now!  One of her photos appeared in an advertisement for La Rue Marche in the December issue of the Minneapolis-St. Paul magazine.  Something tells me this is just the beginning for this beautiful young lady.  Congratulations Brittany!

Three is better than one…

Over the past few years I’ve had several opportunities to work with this family.  However, our past sessions have always been focused solely on the little girl. This time her parents decided to take part in the photo shoot and I’m oh, so glad they did.  Her parents have an amazing outlook on life and they both cherish their family above all else.  What an amazing gift they are giving to their daughter! 

On a sidenote:  The mom donated her hair to Locks of Love just days after the session.  Just one example of what this family is all about.

What’s in a name? | Stillwater, Minnesota photography

Oh, how I love this little boy’s name…and the history behind it makes it even better.  Mr. “H” (as I’ll call him) is the grandson of a champion ski jumper.  When pregnant, his parents were visiting the U.S. Ski Jump Hall of Fame and through reading some history of the sport they stumbled across the name.   They mulled it over for a while and came to the conclusion that it was, in fact, “the name”.  Such a cool name for a cool kid!

Rock On… | Minneapolis newborn and child photographer

At 6 months old, baby “C” is already a mover and a shaker.  I was shocked to see just how well this little tyke gets around.  Not only is he crawling…he’s pulling up to and walking around furniture!!  Time will tell where all of that evergy will take him.  Will he be a rocker?  Or will he follow in Dad’s footsteps?  Either way his parents will always be his #1 fans!  Rock on, little man!

The Loft | Hudson, Wisconsin portrait studio

After months and months of planning, gathering & creating, I am very proud to announce the official opening of “The Loft”, a boutique-style photography studio, located in historic downtown Hudson Wisconsin.  This space does NOT mean I will be giving up on-location photography in the Minneapolis area.  It simply allows me an opportunity to shoot indoors if needed and it also gives me a spot to meet with clients.  I am very excited about this new venture and I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of you who have sent notes of congratulations.

Tim & Kerri

Tim & Kerri…such an amazing couple.  One of the things that struck me most throughout this wedding was the sense of community shown by all of their friends and family.  There was hardly a pew empty in the church and the reception hall was filled to the brim.  Having spent the day with them it was so obvious that friends and family mean the world to Tim & Kerri.  I wish you both the very best!  Congratulations!

Dual Citizen… | Edina, Minnesota children’s photography

Ahhh…’tis the craziest time of the year with the holidays fast approaching.  My blog has taken a bit of a back seat in the past few weeks but I do hope to return soon with regular updates.  In the meantime… 

Meet baby “J”… born in America to two Canadian parents.  What a lucky little man to be both a citizen of the U.S. and Canada!

Little Miss… | Hudson, Wisconsin children’s photography

Little Miss “G”…I think she is what some might refer to as an “old soul”.   An inquisitive little girl with just the right dose of charm!  She and I had a splendid time sharing stories with one another and what an honor it was when she offered to share her snack with me!
