  • s h e r r y - My friend and I stayed at a hostel in the financial district when we were there in May. Ahhh, I miss New York SOOO much. Can’t wait to go back! ;D

  • chelsea - I absolutely love your work! I am the assistant for Staja Studios and have checked your blog periodically since you spoke at the PUG meeting a little over a year ago. Your pictures have such a “fresh-memory” feel to them. Your images are very inspiring and motivating to someone like me who is just peeking in the door of the photography world. Thanks for what you do!!!

  • McKenzie - I am SOO envious!


I absolutely adore the simple elegance and stunning colors from this fun, summery wedding! A very, very special thanks to Jessica of Jessica Smith Photography who shot this wedding with me!


Lidia is the sister of my amazing friend, Diana, and when I heard they were in New York City for just a couple days, I jumped at the chance to capture a quick mini session with them & baby, who is due in March! We wandered near their hotel on the Upper East Side and found a few quaint streets. I love that it still looks like fall in the city! (At least for this Minnesota girl!)

  • McKenzie at Engageology - Cute couple – that baby is going to be gorgeous!

    I can hardly believe she’s 6 months pregnant – she’s tiny!
