I feel very honored to have been asked to contribute to the blog. Here is the article if you are interested.

Lisa’s Interview on Something We Like Blog

Colored Organics | Minneapolis Commercial and Children’s Photography |

I recently had the opportunity to photograph a wonderful new baby and toddler organic clothing line.  These images will be used in their commercial website and print pieces.  I am so excited to share with you this wonderful local “green” clothing line.  Their name is Colored Organics and they offer a full range of beautiful products. As you can see from the images below the clothing is gorgeous (as are the models – check out the little cutie below)Minneapolis Product PhotographyCheck out the back pocket and details on these pants…where where these when my kids were smaller?…





I wanted to thank the owners for the wonderful photosessions, and the children’s parents for the wonderful models they brought. I mean, what is cuter here, these kids or the clothes…I think it is a tie!!!  



Check out this adorable hat…I want it in every color for all my infant photo sesssions!  Once Colored Organics full website is up and running I will post a link for you to see the complete product line. In the meantime, you can sign up for emails and info at



Minneapolis Photographer, children’s lifestyle photography

One of my favorite things about being a lifestyle children’s photographer is that I get to capture children, unscripted. My favorite images are not the big perfect grins, but the ones that capture kids being that perfect moment.

The way you remember them playing in their rain boots, the belly laughs and the way they hug each other so hard, it chokes the other. That is children’s photography. I had the complete honor of photographing these beautiful little girls at my Minneapolis Studio. What was so amazing – beyond the fact that they are well behaved, beautiful, lively and have an amazingly gifted mother – is that these two beautiful girls are the daughters of one of my childhood friends from my hometown of Williston, North Dakota (where you say? is pretty small). I have so many FUN memories of growing up with their mom. We had lost touch after college so what a blessing to be back in contact and to get to meet her children. Photographing them opened up so many memories – when I looked through the lens and saw their mom’s eyes looking back at me, I was taken back in time. It was a wonderful session and a wonderful honor. Thank you Erin for allowing me to capture them on film forever!
