The best piece of advice I can give to all of my seniors would be to relax. We’ve prepped for the session and prepared as best we could. Now it’s session time, we’ve met at our designated location and are ready to get started. Take a deep breath and know that all I want is […]

What you don’t see are the moments in between. I think the best thing that happens during a senior session doesn’t have anything to do with the actual pictures. Don’t get me wrong, the priority is amazing photos. But to me, it’s the experience that each person on the other side of my camera has […]

Cole, a Redwood Valley Senior, seriously crushed his senior session with me. He said he was a little nervous, but you would never know. His session absolutely flew by. We explored all around Ramsey Park and downtown Redwood Fall before going to the gym, where he wanted to showcase how much he enjoys weight lifting. […]

Sweet Ellie, a Redwood Falls Senior, was my first 2022 senior session of the year last year and she was the perfect senior to start off the season.
