In case you were unfamiliar with the products listed in the digital collections and print packages, I thought I would share a few examples with you here.
You will find a 20×30 standout as part of the Large Print Package and a collage of four smaller images (pictured below) as part of the Large Digital Collection. (Click HERE for details.)
There are several side options for the standouts – white (as shown), black, natural, and stainless. The standouts are about 1/2-inch deep and extremely lightweight, which makes hanging a breeze. Standouts are also available a la carte in sizes listed below:
8×8, 8×12, 10×10, 10×20, 11×14, 12×12, 12×18, 16×20, 16×24, 20×20, 20×24, 20×30, 24×30, 24×30, 24×36, 30×30 & 30×40
You will find a 16×24 float wrap as part of the Medium Print Package.
Float wraps are made with an image wrapped around a thin, padded surface which are then mounted to a lightweight board. (Float wraps can be upgraded to canvas as well.) The float wrap itself stands about 1-1/2-inches away from the wall, as seen below.
Float wraps are also available a la carte in sizes listed below:
8×10, 8×12, 10×10, 10×20, 10×30, 11×14, 12×12, 12×18, 15×30, 16×16, 16×20, 16×24, 20×20, 20×24, 20×30
Large Wall Mosaic
The large wall mosaic is part of the Extra Large Print Package. It is made up of 9-16×16 images (glass frames included) and is pictured and the wall behind the lamp in the image below:

The EVERYDAY FAMILY SESSION is a popular session format for families looking to capture meaningful everyday moments.
The Everyday Family Session centers around an activity or location that engages family members. I am there to capture life as it unfolds.

The MILESTONE SESSION is for infants and children. These sessions take place in my home and include unique props and backdrops.

The LEGACY SESSION is for those wanting to document and capture life-altering stories. It is for those looking to create a permanent visual record of a significant moment in time, who believe in the potential for beauty in every circumstance.
Legacy Session ideas include (but are not limited to) the following:
– Documenting a battle with cancer, an illness, or disability.
– Birth stories after having faced infertility or pregnancy loss.
– Saying goodbye to a faithful, furry friend.
– Stories involving painful life transitions.
– Celebrating life during its most difficult moments (hospice, chemotherapy, and hospitalizations).
Due to the sensitive nature of this type of session, the session fee is waived; you will receive my time and 10 digital images as a gift without any further obligation. (If you are interested in purchasing the entire image gallery on disc, it will be available for only $100/plus tax.) Click HERE for more information.

As a lifestyle photographer, I enjoy documenting lives from the eye of an observer. My favorite images are relaxed and real. I look not for perfection but authenticity as I strive to capture *the real you* in our short time together. I have a tendency to zero in on the little things, details that might otherwise go unnoticed.
And even the ones that do get noticed.
Because one thing I know for certain is every single second is precious. A gift. We are constantly changing – life is constantly changing. I want to capture the real you today. To help you savor this moment in time. In all its crazy glory, especially if you’re a family with young children. Because someday they will no longer wear diapers, have tantrums, or attach themselves to your leg.
And trust me, someday you will miss it. ALL OF IT.
When booking a session, we will work together to find a location that best reflects you. It could be an open field or perhaps an old barn. I could join you berry picking or sledding. Hanging out in Stillwater. Perhaps you’ve spotted a colorful building and would love to have your session there. I am open to ideas and love to shoot outside the box.
When dressing for the session, think more about coordinating rather than trying to look exactly alike. Mixing colors, patterns, and styles work well as long as everyone is in sync with each other. Need inspiration? Let me know and I’ll hook you up with some ideas.
Our time together is meant to be fun, enjoyable experience for everyone. Smiles are best when they happen on their own so I will shake things up a bit to help you relax. Enjoy each other and do your best to pretend I’m not there. Because this is about you. Your story, your life.
