Photography

Serving the Verndale, Wadena and Park Rapids, MN area

From maternity to senior photos; I do it all. I specialize in maternity, newborn, infant, child, family, pet, prom and senior photography. I'm happy to capture your memories my studio or a location of your choosing. We purchased a buidling in downtown Verndale in 2015. I am now booking sessions in this amazing new studio. I have a large selection of props and backdrops available for infants and children to make picture taking fun.

My style, especially with young children, tends to be more candid photos. I like to have a very relaxed atmosphere with very few stuffy rules. I welcome your input and suggestions and understand kids will be kids, as I have 7 of my own. I've been told working with me is comfortable, like getting photos taken by auntie...and that's my goal. For more information about me and why I do this, read "About Me" below.

Having a special event, perhaps a family reunion? I'd be happy to capture those special moments, as well as, those rare family photos with everyone in them!

About Me...the woman behind the camera

My familyWe welcomed our newest addition, baby Faith (photo below), to the family in September, 2013. When our second youngest daughter, Becca, was born in the spring of 2012 we made the decision to have me start working for myself. For the past 15 years I have worked capturing, enhancing, color correcting and modifying photographs, as well as, doing graphic design. Mother of three and stepmother of 4, my priority is my children.

Baby girl close upMy goal is to combine my love of children, my own and yours, with my love of photography. Nothing would make me happier than being able to capture the beauty you see in your children and family, bringing a smile to both of our faces, while being able to devote more time to my own children. I know times are tough and I strive to keep my rates competitive. All of my photos are individually edited by me personally, great attention is given to detail to make sure they are of the highest quality. I spend hours making sure that each photo to be posted in your gallery is perfect...down to the last pixel.

I am in this to bring smiles to the faces of my children and to the faces of the clients. I hope to develop a relationshipwith my clients over the coming years. When you are shopping for the photographer that meets your personality, style, budget and quality needs, be sure you know what you will pay not only for your session, but also for your prints and/or digitally enhanced photos before you book your session...you don't want any unpleasant surprises.

My familyI have professional photo equipment, computers, software, training and an amazing new studio. I keep a casual atmosphere and a go-with-the flow attitude. It's necessary when many of your clients are under age 5, as I am sure you understand. :) Little ones keep me on my toes and never seem comfortable in stuffy, rule-filled environments...so you won't find that here. I'm open to trying new things, so bring your ideas with you and we'll capture what you're looking for...or leave it to me and I'll lead the way. Let me know how you'd like your experience to go and I'll do my best to accommodate. Oh, and don't misunderstand, I do family, maternity, pet, senior, sport team, event and other photos all the time. I just have a special place in my heart for little ones. :)

Professional Prints

Many clients choose to purchase a package with digital photos with full rights. However, this doesn't mean mean you should pass on all professional prints!

Prints are ordered through a professional lab that ensures quality and durability. The colors are accurate and the paper is heavier. Professional prints are more likely to resist bends, tears and fading so they are more likely look amazing for years to come. Professional prints are highly recommended for photos you want to display on a wall or in a frame, as they will resist fading much better than budget prints.

Clients who purchase high resolution image packages receive 30% off of print prices.

Whether you are looking for a metallic paper print, a standout, canvas wrap, collage wall, photo book or professionally matted and framed print, I can help you create the perfect piece you will treasure forever!

If it's beautifully designed cards or announcements that you desire, I can help you create and order those as well. Now that you've captured the memories, don't let them hide away on a CD somewhere, display them proudly.

Graphic Design

In addition to photography services, I offer graphic design. If you would like invitations or announcements, I'd be happy to take your input and create custom designs for you. I also edit, restore and enhance photos for you. Perhaps you would like to create a piece of art out of a favorite photo, or have a special family image from years past that is in dire need of restoration; just contact me to discuss your options.

Last, but not least, I also design flyers, brochures, stationery, business cards, advertisements and other items.
