I'm a photographer, educator, and creative dream-chaser
based in Duluth, MN.
Born & based in Duluth, MN, I serve Wedding & Boudoir clients throughout the northwoods. My secret ninja skill is making people feel at home in their own skin. By building real honest connection, I capture the essence of who you are, along with the sweet in-between moments that make life richer. I'm energized by the woods + waters of northern Minnesota & love capturing my clients in the elements!
I'm married to my summer camp crush, a bearded boy from England (yes, he even has an accent!). We've done years of long-distance, navigated the immigration process, and share an endless résumé of DIY projects + foster pups! Together we vowed to travel somewhere new each year, and after a decade, we're still just as obsessed with big adventures!
When I’m not serving photography clients, you’ll find me romping in the woods with my two giant lap dogs, dorking out over really good beer, teaching creative entrepreneurs, and running my curated gift business, White Spruce Market.
At my core, I believe in pursuing a life full of purpose, creativity, adventure, and as many dogs as my lap can hold.
I'll talk your ear off
about hop varieties
(but only if you ask).
Fresh air, breezy pines,
Bring it on!
But especially these two:
Meet Summit & Mowgli!
The bearded British boy who stole my heart at summer camp!
See as much of the world as I can while I'm here.
Let's face it:
I'm a total homebody.
