Madison • Windom, MN Senior

Everyone, meet Madison, my Windom Area High School Class of 2017 Senior Spokesmodel. I had the chance to have a few sessions with Madison and her family – she earned a mini session as a perk and instead of using it only for herself, she decided to do a session with her family. During the consultation, the sessions, and her ordering process, I have come to learn quite a bit about Madison. She loves sports, her family, and God. I enjoyed my time with Madison and her family! She has a bright future ahead of her! Thank you for allowing me to work with you, Madison!

All of God's grace in one tiny face...

I have to say, newbies are one of my favorite things to capture. Yes, the sessions are time consuming, messy – spit ups, pee, and sweat(heaters on high the whole time), and require a gentle touch. But, I enjoy that. I like that I have to take extra time to snuggle the little ones to get them into a deep sleep, to get them exactly where I need them to be, and of course, to see the expression on the parent's faces when my work is done.

Here are two adorable little ones, that I had the opportunity to photograph over the last couple of weeks. Miley, with the gorgeous full head of hair, and Savannah, who I have a hard time deciding if she looks more like mom or dad. God has truly blessed their parents! :)


Mikayla • Wabasso, MN Senior

Meet Mikayla, Wabasso High School Class of 2017 Senior Spokesmodel. I have had the pleasure of photographing Mikayla on a few different occasions. Besides being a model for me, I have had the chance to watch Mikayla grow up the past eight years – my husband and her are cousins. Mikayla has grown up to be such a beautiful young lady – and I think her images show it! Thank you so much for allowing me the chance to work with you, Mikayla!
