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 ! (click)

What makes me different?
I’m a full-service studio, whatever that means to you!
If you want help bringing those digital images to life, I’m right here to help.
If you want to DIY? Go for it!
Somewhere in between? I’m your gal.

This is a professional studio, insured and registered, in business for over a decade.

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 mini session: Includes (2) digital images or (3) gift prints.  Buy more if you want! 
  • More time? A regular family session, then simply buy what you want a la carte or packages to save money
  • Queen Bea session: upgrade to a package including ten (10!) full size digital images of your choice, and a gorgeous 16×20 print (+$275, a $750 value)

Other sessions available:

  • Your new child
  • Headshots
  • Seniors
  • Big Families
  • In-home Lifestyle session, with family or friends

Whatever you pick,  do not rely on 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 DIY online from your hive, or bug me for a little help.
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.

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!

This retainer fee is transferable, but non-refundable.  A SIGNED CONTRACT must be completed with your payment. The session is not confirmed until session fee & signature have been received.

Rescheduling/Cancellation: Your session fee is non-refundable, but IS transferable, and does not expire. Upon client’s request to reschedule, paid retainer may be transferred to another available date. Advance notice is appreciated. Rescheduling may be subject to a $50 fee.

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.
