I am a Minneapolis native and studied at the University of Minnesota. I have a full-time career as an Executive Recruiter in the Twin Cities, but my love for creativity and color led me to discover photography. I love Minneapolis with a burning passion and the entrepreneurship community here inspires me every day.
I started my photography career as a food photographer, actually. I wrote a food blog for three years until people in my network starting asking me to take their picture for things like LinkedIn, companies they were starting, engagements and various events. If you know me, you know I am quite extroverted and I realized taking pictures of PEOPLE is so much more fun for me!
Today, I mostly work with local entrepreneurs who are creating content and a visual strategy for their growing businesses. I enjoy working with health-focused individuals, people who are progressive, open-minded and trying to make a difference, whatever that looks like. I also do a lot of professional head shots still - everyone needs strong profile picture!
I see so much value in photography because it gives us a chance to capture you during the happiest, most exciting and confident times in your life. I'm a very empathetic and informal person. You will be comfortable and laughing constantly during our shoot together.
I like to shoot free-hand in natural light. The final images you'll receive will be lightly enhanced for color and lighting purposes, but I like to preserve much of the original image for an authentic, natural look. I am not a fan of highly edited images - you are absolutely stunning just the way you are!
