Running a photography business means using many programs and apps for a variety of purposes. I love hearing about a new program that can help streamline my processes to be more efficient! After eight years in business, I have found some amazing programs that I love sharing with others. These are the programs that I […]

This winter has been deliberately on the quiet side! There’s a good reason for that – there’s a new baby in our home! Our second child, Reese Louise, was born just after Christmas on December 27th and our hearts have never been more full. Every baby born is a miracle and we feel so blessed […]

The Inn at Serenbe is a truly special place. I spent the week here for The Fount Collective workshop and know that I have to come back someday with Tom and Judd. I got up early one morning before breakfast to walk the grounds and shoot some of the lovely scenery.  All photos shot on […]

It’s hard to believe that it’s been over a year since our son, Judd, was born. To document his one year photos, I pulled out a roll of black and white film and spent some time letting him play in his nursery. We’re so proud of who this little guy is becoming and continue to […]

In what seems like ages ago, Tom and I went to New York City for a long weekend. Mostly to see our friend, Lindy, perform in a comedy show she co-wrote, but also partly as a babymoon, we embarked on our first trip to the city together for five days. We traveled light (as usual) […]

In the past, I’ve done a social media-free weekend and really […]

I took my time making this decision, partially because I actually liked my day job (a blessing!) and […]

A continuation of our Scotland travels in late April, these are my film photos shot with a Contax 645 on Fuji400H. Part 2, coming soon, will be Tom’s take on our trip. Whenever we travel, I carry my film camera and Tom shoots with our digital 5Dmiii. It’s interesting to see how different places and […]

Part two of our travels in March was a long weekend in San Francisco. After spending some time in Seattle, we flew down to San Francisco for our friend Liz’s wedding. While much of our time was spent on awesome wedding festivities, we did find time to get out and see the city a bit. […]

A vacation was exactly what we needed. A chance to unplug from our day to day activities, work and the chilly Minnesota winter that seems to persist for too long in the spring. Tom and I went on a three leg vacation in March, first to the Pacific Northwest and finishing in San Francisco for […]
