I thoroughly believe that the moments that fill your everyday life are the same ones that will fill your heart for decades to come,  which is why I offer families in Grand Forks and surrounding areas an alternative to traditional family portraiture. My goal is that in fifty years, my images will not only remind you what you looked like, but what you felt like.

Now that you know a little more about my work, here is more about me:

I am easily star struck. I once ran into David Letterman at Starbucks and quietly stared at him until he left….quickly.  I’d like to think he was in a rush and not just completely creeped out by the stalker in the corner.

On a related note, as a kindergartner I was perplexed as to why there were no letters actually involved in Letterman’s show. Clearly, I didn’t understand that his format differed greatly from my beloved Sesame Street.

This is a good time to clarify, I wasn’t allowed to stay up late watching late nite TV as a five-year-old.  At the time we lived in Latin America and it was simply on the day time schedule of one of the only English speaking channels available to us.

At the same age, I began to take Tae Kwon Do.  It wasn’t until later in middle school that I would revisit the sport and earn my black belt.

In high school I declined an invite to prom because I had a Tae Kwon Do tournament the same weekend. Priorities, people.

Shortly after this, we moved away and my love of kicking stuff translated into playing soccer instead, which landed me on a Division I soccer team at university.

Now my athleticism is limited mostly to workout videos and  running around the house chasing my two preschoolers.  Though not an Olympic sport, I’m convinced this qualifies for a medal.

You can get to know me and my work better by visiting my Portfolio or reading what my past clients have to say in their Testimonials.
