Embracing the Awkward

“But we’re so awkward in photos!” If I had a Thin Mint for every time I heard this, I would be the world’s largest lady. Friends, we are all in the same boat. Most of us feel a teensy bit awkward in the presence of a camera lens. Heck, myself included! You’re probably thinking, “But Bailey, those photos of […]


Chelsey & Zack: Snowy Duluth, MN Engagement Session

Can I get a resounding “woot-woot” for these mild winter temps? (Woot, woot!) Not to harp on last winter, but seriously: This modest snowfall + warmish weather are such a welcome reprieve.

As […]


Shannon & Brandon: Boulder Lake Area Engagement Session

A few weeks before their engagement session, Shannon & Brandon reached out with a few ideas. It went something like this: “Let us know if this is too dorky, but we’d like to finish our session by jumping off our dock.” My immediate response was, of course, an arm-flailing happy dance. “Heck, yes!” I said. So on […]
