Molly & Connor | Minneapolis Winter Engagement Session

I often ask my couples to just have conversations with each other during the session to try to forget about me.   Usually its goofy questions in the beginning, since both people are trying to get past that "oh shit, there is a camera pointed in our direction" feeling.  But later on, it changes to the sweetest of exchanges.  

I usually only get little bits of it.  Which I love.  Sweet little whispers of affirmations and I love yous, and I can't believe we soon will be married. 

Sarah & Lee | In-home Session

If I would of picked all my favorites this post would of been WAY too long, so here was just a portion of my engagement session with Sarah and Lee.  They traveled in from Colorado so  I invited them in for a cozy winter in home session at my own apartment.  To help make this space their own they sat on the kitchen floor, tangled up with steaming cups of coffee and then read love letters to out loud to one another.   

The sunset campfire photos to follow are just as stunning, but I am so drawn to these simple intimate in-home moments that can encourage couples to think differently about what an engagement session needs to be (face palms and squished noses and all).  These feel so down to earth, intimate, and personal.  Their love in its simple raw form, just as it is. 


Ashley | Maternity

Having the ability to honor women where ever they are, whichever milestone, is by far one of my greatest values when it comes to photography.  I am forever grateful for the ones who lean into the vulnerability of allowing themselves to be seen, with intimacy and transparency.
