We took a stroll around the gorgeous streets of Summit Avenue and had a lot of fun taking Maddie and Zach’s St Paul engagement photos.  They wanted to have a very fun, urban scenario for their session and we found so many spots to cuddle and chat! (they cuddled and I chatted, haha!)  We had […]

The day we had scheduled for Kate and Joel’s MN engagement session, the forecast called for storms.  But this wasn’t discouraging for this particular MN engagement Photographer. We decided to stick it out and wait for the skies to clear, and I am so glad we did!  We ended up with a gorgeous evening together […]

I am so in love with this Minnesota winter session in Minneapolis! What a wonderful way to celebrate the “end” of the winter! The snow kept coming even after spring officially started, and Lauren and Pravesh decided to embrace the cold for their engagement session. We went out for a chilly but very sweet morning […]

Ashley and Brandon’s Stone Arch Minneapolis engagement session was a dream! They wanted to have the city surroundings to contrast their destination wedding, so we woke up early for a sunrise session around the city.  It was so incredible to see the city so empty.  Usually there are people around everywhere, but we had the world […]

I absolute love in home maternity photos!  It’s so nice to have the mama-to-be somewhere comfortable, and what’s more comfortable than your own home?  We also don’t have to worry about the weather, so this particular session with Lauren and Michael was nice and warm compared to the winter weather that was happening outside.  We […]

Perhaps my favorite part of this beautiful Twin Cities maternity session is the fact that Robin and her family left behind their warm California life to have this session in snowy, freezing Minnesota!  But I can’t really blame them.  Minnesota in the winter is like living inside a magical snow globe sometimes.  I am so […]

I grew up in the tropical lands of Costa Rica, where I met the love of my life, and we started our lives in Minneapolis after years of long distance! Together we have the most spunky little one. 
My photos are all about the genuine smiles, the connection between people and the LOVE!
