Hello Friends,

I am a professional lifestyle & portrait family photographer, also offering commercial photography and support for small local businesses.

My unique ten acre Bea Hive Farm is filled with adorable critters and pretty places to click, along with the old farmhouse renovated into my studio.
All this just steps from Lake Minnetonka in Minnetrista, Minnesota.
In fact, this area has been home most of my life!

So you like my style and are interested in working together?
Let’s talk ! Call 612-567-BUZZ,  Email or use the CONTACT ME tab

What makes me different?
I’m full-service. If you want help bringing those digital images to life, I’m right here to help.
This is a professional studio, insured and registered. This is not a hobby. I know my job well.
I’m F-U-N.  Coming to click with me is an experience the kids (and even the guys) will love.
Stress-free. Easy. Affordable. Let’s click!

Whether it’s one of my quarterly events, a family lifestyle session at home,
or more traditional family images at a beautiful location,
I’m here to help you finish what we start
and show them what your family tree looks like!

How Much?

Too book is STILL only $150-
Then pick one:

~A regular family session

~Your new baby, Head shots, Seniors, Big Families or an in-home Lifestyle session

~Mini Session – Chose a date at my Bea Hive Farm just about anytime, or during my quarterly special EVENTS

All types of sessions include pre-planning, the photo shoot, and your image gallery presented in person at my hive or online. If you would like your favorites as social media files to share, I’ll even include those, too!  Each session gets my full service  – All the help you want, bringing those images to life! You buy whatever you want from your session. Prints, wall art, albums, digital files…. I got it all!  There is no minimum purchase, and packages are available to save money.
(Psssssttttt – those short & honey-sweet mini sessions & events even include your choice of (2) digital images to DIY print or (3) gift prints)

There’s something to fit most budgets.
Wall art starts around $150, print packages about $200 and custom albums begin at $300.

Do not rely on today’s technology alone; print what you want to preserve!

Wait, you help me finish what we started? What? 

Of course! Printing things is so important! After your images are ready, you can skip the online picking, and meet back at my hive for your gallery reveal and ordering appointment.
Ordering is simple, without a lot of fuss.
I have some lovely albums & folio books you can hold and look at, and samples on the walls to see sizes and options for finishes.
There are options to suit every budget,
and all products are of professional quality that will last a long long time.
‘Want to start choosing favorites from your hive online, and bug me if you need help? Sure!

It’s very fun and a lot less stressful than trying to do it all yourself.

Please note that commercial jobs & special event photography, both for business and private parties,
are bid separately; contact me to discuss your options and budget.

I welcome any questions that you have, and would love to hear any creative & fun session ideas you have in mind.
I’ve been doing this for many many years, and really want to make this as fun and stress-free as possible!

Travel Fee:  Most of my sessions take place here in the west metro at my Bea Hive Farm. Other locations are available, but could be subject to a fee to cover additional time.

Session duration time: For child & family sessions: Fact: kids run our show, and I don’t set a timer. But over the years I’ve been able to understand their style, and predict a pretty good time frame to aim for. Mini sessions take about 15-20 minutes, regular sessions are 30-45 minutes.  I make great use of time & temperaments, moving right along with our session.
