MINNESOTA AND WISCONSIN FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY DOCUMENTING
GENUINE CONNECTION, SINCERE SMILES, AND THE MAGIC OF ADVENTURE.


the milestone experience

Do you hate those stiff and stuffy traditional family portraits? You know the ones I’m talking about — the ones filled with awkward smiles and matching T-shirts. Well, I do, too! And I can’t wait to share how I see family photography through my lens.

By incorporating dynamic movement and gentle prompts, we can document your family as it truly is, with shining authenticity. And by letting your personalities lead the way, we will fill a gallery with images that feel natural, beautiful, and filled with wonder. How do I do it? Let’s dive into my process!

frequentLy         Questions

asked

Do you have a studio?

I don’t currently have one of my own, but I often rent out studio space if the occasion calls for it! If you’re seeking a studio session, there is an additional fee, but I am more than happy to craft a session to fit your needs.

What if the weather is terrible on the day of our session?

If the sky is cloudy and gray, don’t worry! I can’t wait to show you how beautiful the diffused light will make your images! However, I’ll be in touch a couple of days before your scheduled session to discuss weather if there is heavy rain or high winds in the forecast. Together, we will decide how to move forward: with a reschedule, change of time or location, or full speed ahead with the plan no matter the weather. The final call is up to you!

Are you insured?

I am! I have both public liability insurance and professional indemnity insurance, and I am more than happy to send proof to your venue if they require it.

What happens if we need to reschedule due to family emergency or illness?

I’m more than happy to reschedule your session in these cases! I simply asked that you notify me as soon as possible so I can make adjustments.

How will we receive our gallery?


Two weeks or less after your session, you’ll receive a link to your very own password-protected online gallery. There you’ll be able to download images, share them with friends and family, and order physical prints for your home!

Should we bring anything with us to our session?

Especially if you’re worried your little one(s) will get bored during our session, feel free to bring some of their favorite toys, games, balls, kites, bubbles, or anything in between to keep them excited and engaged. And I’d definitely recommend bringing snacks and water with you, too!

What should we wear for our session?

 I completely understand that choosing an outfit for your session can be the worst part! I always recommend gravitating toward solid neutrals or minimal patterns for photo sessions. Also, opt for coordinating over going matchy-matchy. But the key is to choose something that feels comfortable and true to you. But if this sounds overwhelming, don’t worry! I can help you out as your session approaches.

How far in advance should we book our session?

I typically book about a month out for family sessions. However, during the warmer months and the holiday season, you may want to inquire more than a month in advance to ensure I can accommodate you.


What happens if my children misbehave?

Please don’t stress over it! I have tips on tricks on strategies to work with squirmy littles, including giving them a few minutes of photo session time dedicated just to them! They usually love it and become far more engaged for the rest of the session. But the most important thing is to keep the mood surrounding the session relaxed and laid back. Children are affected by our emotions, and if we stress, so do they. So, by keeping things lighthearted, we can set ourselves up for a beautiful session!

All of this sounds amazing! How do we book?

Wonderful! I can’t wait to document this chapter in your family’s story! Simply inquire on my contact page, and I’ll be in touch ASAP to continue the conversation. Then, once I receive a signed agreement and your non-refundable session payment, you’re all booked and ready to go!


DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO?

I don’t currently have one of my own, but I often rent out studio space if the occasion calls for it! If you’re seeking a studio session, there is an additional fee, but I am more than happy to craft a session to fit your needs.

OUR SESSION?

WHAT HAPPENS IF WE NEED TO RESCHEDULE DUE TO FAMILY EMERGENCY OR ILLNESS?


I’m more than happy to reschedule your session in these cases! I simply asked that you notify me as soon as possible so I can make adjustments.
