The truth is professional photography is a luxury, much like a designer purse or a nice car.
However, unlike the expensive jeans that wear and fade with time, a documentary session is an investment — the kind of investment that will only get more valuable with time.
This is a photography session unlike any other.
I want to create images for you that you can share with your children, when they are parents themselves, or for yourself when these precious memories are fading faster than you’d like. No one has a story like yours, and I can’t wait to document it for you!
A session fee is required to confirm your booking. It covers my session time with your family, any phone and email consultations, and a fully edited online gallery for your viewing and ordering. It DOES NOT include any print or digital products.
Minnesota sales tax will be added to the purchase of your collection. Travel fees may apply outside of the Twin Cities Metro.

Picture this. Your annual “Day in the Life” family albums are organized on your bookshelf – one for each year. Together they tell the story of your family. Your children, now adults themselves, laugh as they flip through the years sharing stories of their childhood with their own children cuddled next to them. Your grandchildren point and marvel about how young everyone looks, the funny things their parents did as children, and the house that their parents grew up in.
Creating a series of annual “Day in the Life” family albums is a way to preserve and to pass on for generations to come the photos, memories, and stories of your family.
I get it. Photography is an investment. But this type of investment will only get more valuable with time.
Because I believe in the value of these sessions, I offer you the ability to lock in your initial pricing with me if you book a half or full day in the life session each year. There are no commitments, but if you book every year you lock in the price you paid the year before. So no matter how my pricing changes over the years, you don’t pay anything more than you did for your first session.
