Jessica’s Senior Session

A northern Minnesota adventure with Jessica, hiking through the woods, walking through fields of flowers, and even climbing around on a bridge. If I was to describe her I would say casual and fearless.

Casual in the way she goes with the flow with “whatever” being her favorite catch phrase. She is also quite the fearless one, crossing on top of logs and climbing around like a gymnast all in crocs none the less. One of her goals is to own a pair of crocs in every color, and I think she is well on her way with the start of her 14 pair collection.

I had so much fun photographing and hope you enjoy a look into Jessica’s senior session.

Working with the storms – A summer senior session –

It’s a June that feels like April. Lots of storms rolling in and to find a good session time can be hit or miss. Luckily we stuck with our original session date and found one free of rain. It was an afternoon being handed the most beautiful color palette nature could give. It was so fun photographing Peter’s portraits while working with the deep greens and blues that filled our background from ground to sky.

A Family Christmas

I have photographed my family celebrations a few times so when asked about photographing a Christmas for another family I couldn’t have been more excited. There’s no better time than when the house is full and the whole family is together.

I was honored to spend the day with this beautiful family and capture this sweet space that will always hold memories of Christmas.

Enjoy!

Life lessons – Grandma edition

Hello Friend!
Today’s blog starts with a quick story. My grandma is incredible with plants like mastery level plant lady. She keeps everything alive and saves every sprout for it to start growing in a cup. I’m full of questions when I visit because I love flowers and hope to pick up on some of her knowledge on keeping my poor plants alive. 

The gift is all her own, but what I did take away is if you truly care about something it requires time, patience, and energy to nurture it and someday if you are lucky it becomes instinct.  My grandma can’t simply walk by a plant or garden she will literally start weeding it, even if it’s not her own. My grandma’s passion for gardening is something deep and now engrained that extends beyond a hobby. 

For me it’s not a list of goals that I wish to obtain for this next year, but I wish to take that passion that my grandma subconsciously shows and place that in things that matter in my life. To not simply walk by those gardens filled with weeds but to patiently care for them and nurture them daily.
Wishing you a blessed Christmas season and happy New Year!
-Sophia

Meet Carsyn,
She is a kind creative who has a big heart for her family and her animals. We spent the most beautiful afternoon at Carsyn’s family farm.

My favorite part was hearing stories about the memories of the farm and photographing Carsyn with her horses. The light was magical and she was in her element. I am very honored to have captured this time in her life and so excited to see all that her future holds.

Enjoy!!
