We are only here for a short time, and this is the only body that we have in our possession. Life is too short to hide in shame at something that we should be proud of! Look at all the amazing things your body can do! When you're ready, book me to show you just how amazing you are.
When I run ads or advertisements, I refer to this as "Giving the gift of lewd". It's a unique gift, and perhaps a level up from sending salacious selfies. It's sure to please!
Lifestyle photography encompasses a lot, from just daily life moments, to a specific setting and event that you want to capture. I generally leave this up to the customer to decide how their idea lines up, but I do generally reserve this label for anything considered alternative to mainstream- like BDSM and kink culture.
Please don't hire me for creative purposes and then micromanage the event! Art is subjective and supposed to be creative and at times, messy. If you are willing to let me just do my job, I'll do my best to show you it's worth your time and effort. If you think your cellphone does "just as well" or you can get the services elsewhere for cheaper, please don't give me the run around. You get what you pay for. (My lower-end camera has better resolution than your iPhone. Just sayin'.)
The reason I offer different wedding photography packages is really to find something that will suit your budget, and what you want out of the experience! Everything is open to discussion, and I do my best to remind my customers that nothing is set in stone. I enjoy the simple facts that everyone has a different vision for their special day!
I don't really plan mini sessions, because there is a very low rate of people either booking or following through. BUT if you have a need for some props for any occasion, I have an array of pre-made things that I can offer for rental! Things like flower crowns, accent pieces, animal skulls, and other odds and ends.
If you have other artsy friends, you might know how it goes-- we constantly remind folks to "Like, Share, Recommend" but from a marketing angle, that really does help drive interest in what we are peddling. And it's a free way to support your friends if you can't afford to purchase from them regularly.

Besides being a mom and a budding entrepreneur, I am also an artist. I do my best to create something that you will treasure for years to come. I try to ask enough questions to get a good feel for what you're hoping to achieve- no matter the setting or occasion; I want your portrait session to feel like an accurate and authentic representation of yourself.
I grew up in Wahpeton, ND, and moved to Moorhead, MN in 2018. I love art, science, gaming, and crafting! I routinely subject my girls to arts and crafts in the hopes that they will find a worthwhile hobby to cultivate as they grow. Photography is an outlet of my artistic expression, along with decorating, writing, glue crafts, and repurposing. This is how I come up with some props for photoshoots!
I have been taking pictures for as long as my family can remember. I purchased my first DSLR in 2015 before my youngest was born, and started my professional photographer status in 2018. I don't have a focused interest, other than I prefer to do a "run-and-gun" approach to most of my shoots. I offer a wide range of photography services, from session photography and portrait photography which most people are accustomed to seeing, to offering memorial services, and more.
I enjoy making personal connections with my photography clients- I love telling and hearing stories about someone's life.
My current service areas are Fargo/Moorhead, Wahpeton/Breckenridge, and surrounding areas- any further and it's still an option, but there is an added fuel surcharge.
