  December 20, 2016

I started off 2016 with a bit of a break from work to spend time with my kids and then jumped back in the Spring with family sessions. From April until just last weekend, it was packed full of smiling faces… I am ever so thankful for all the wonderful people that I was able to work with.

This year definitely threw my family a few curveballs… The biggest curveball of them all was my Dad getting ill and passing away in the Fall. Obviously you can never prepare for this type of loss but as most of you know who have gone through something similar, Life. Goes. On… There’s really no stopping or slowing down when you’re a parent, spouse, friend, business owner, etc. 

I was pleasantly surprised at how healing it was getting back to work and being around my client’s positive energy. Photography is obviously a huge part of my life but the importance of a frozen frame of time that you can literally hold in your hands has even more magic and meaning to me now than it did 12 months ago. Whether it be me or another photographer, I can’t stress enough the importance of taking photographs of the people and the places that you love the most. 

I’d like to especially thank all the wonderful people that came back to me for another year of photos, for the amazing new clients that I met, & everyone who kept truckin’ along side me during a difficult year. I look forward to taking a break with my family for the remainder of 2016 and can’t wait to see everyone in 2017.

2015

  January 07, 2016

I usually have a really long end-of-the-year post but I’ll keep it semi short & sweet this time around (minus the million photos). 2015 was straight up AMAZING. I was able to continue doing more documentary style sessions, started my “This is Motherhood” project, traveled to Mexico to photograph a wedding on the beach, volunteered with Minnesota Heart Gallery, photographed & 2nd shot weddings, did 5 weekend days of back-t0-back mini-sessions, worked with families that I’ve known since my first year of business, and met many new smiling faces. 

Besides blogging more, I don’t really have a big “must do” list for 2016 except that I want to keep the momentum up for documentary style couples/family sessions. I’ve been doing this type of work for the past few years but really want to make it a focus going into the New Year. My goal is to have you look back at these photos years down the road & remember what life was like at that moment in time. 

I want to also continue creating photos that focus on you & your life story… This means staying away from any fuss like props (I personally find them to get in the way & distract), minimal editing on images (because laugh lines make you awesome & I don’t want you to look like a painting), and photographing at locations that are meaningful to you (which allows everyone to be much more relaxed = authenticity). I will have the option of adding an album to every session & it will be included with the Livet Colletion (2-3 hour documentary session) to show your session from start to finish. 

THANK YOU to every single person that I was able to photograph this year… Cheers!

P. FAMILY

  August 06, 2015

LAST YEAR I CONNECTED WITH ASHELY THROUGH E-MAIL AND WE DID ONE OF MY FAVORITE IN-HOME SESSIONS EVER… I HAVE BEEN LUCKY ENOUGH TO PHOTOGRAPH THIS SWEET FAMILY ANOTHER TWO TIMES SINCE THEN. K, A, AND E ARE SOME OF THE SWEETEST PEOPLE THAT I’VE COME ACROSS AND I ALWAYS GET A BURST OF INSPIRATION WHEN THEY ARE IN FRONT OF MY LENS. THANK YOU, P. FAMILY!
