MY EXPERTISE

ENGAGEMENT & WEDDING

Though I photographed countless weddings over the years, the best training I ever received was getting married in September 2017. I couldn’t believe how much I learned from being on the other side of the camera. I was most surprised by how much I loved all the spontaneous candids of us and our guests. These photos definitely outnumber the staged, line-up style shots in my wedding album and are primarily the ones I’ve framed for my house.

After my wedding, my appreciation for the planning process and the day itself completely changed. I love being able to share my tips & tricks to help make your engagement and wedding day photos even more special. This means helping you create a shot list and logical timeline, managing your family’s expectations and more. As a bonus to my Twin Cities clients, I’m always sharing info about the best vendors around town.

Wedding packages start at $3,000 and are completely customizable. I can also be available for destination weddings, especially during Minnesota’s never-ending winters. Just specify those details when inquiring. 

MOTHERHOOD

The first part of my career was spent working in marketing for a well-known baby product company where I cast baby models (the best!), creative directed photoshoots and promoted some of the cutest baby products ever. This job, along with becoming Auntie Trish to six nieces and nephews, was an incredibly influential experience on my path to full-time photography—and totally fueled my obsession with babies.

I seriously adore the transformative beauty that is a woman becoming a mom. Some of my most memorable photoshoots have been in-home sessions with new parents, where everyone’s just a little bit overtired but mom has makeup on for the first time in weeks so she’s determined to make it happen.

I often hear from new moms that their husband was skeptical about this type of photoshoot, but he quickly changes his mind once he sees the gallery. Sleep deprivation can make these intimate moments at home fuzzy, so capturing them for my clients brings them–and me–a lot joy.

Single Motherhood packages start at $375.

I also offer a customizable Bringing Home Baby collection bundle starting at $1200. This custom package can include:

Pregnancy Announcement // Maternity // Fresh 48 (hospital)

Newborn // 3 Months // 6 Months // 9 Months // 1 Year

LIFESTYLE

Though “lifestyle” photography has become somewhat “trendy”, I don’t see this style going away anytime soon. Why? Because lining your family up in matching shirts under a tree at sunset isn’t real life. Family photos should show you and your family in this moment in time.

If that means the kindergartener won’t put her favorite book down or the toddler needs a snack in order to cooperate, so be it. When I photograph young families, my goal is to make everyone feel comfortable so all the giggles and all-around adorableness come out naturally.

Lifestyle packages start at $375.

I can't wait to work with you.
