Hey there! I'm Kirsten, married to the greatest guy I know, mother to a spunky little boy and likely found in comfy sweaters, worn out flats and sipping Diet Coke. I love to help others through blogging what I'm passionate about, travel, beauty and photography. And so many days a year I'm lucky enough to follow around amazing couples with my camera, creating photos that will last a lifetime.


Most days you can find me at our home in Minnesota but if I'm not there I'm probably at the hockey rink cheering on my little guy. I'm a book worm, yogi, wine lover and traveler.  In college I received a bachelors of science in nursing which landed me at the hospital working as a registered nurse. Are you suddenly confused and wondering how in the world I became a photographer? Click below to find out!

my story

registered nurse turned wedding photographer

After the birth of my son in 2011, I became more serious about learning photography and capturing his childhood. So I did what many moms do, I bought a nice camera and started snapping away. That camera never left my side and lit a creative fire inside of me that has allowed me to capture his childhood beyond my iPhone camera.
As I began posting photos I had taken, I started getting requests for sessions which lead me to start my business. In 2015 I fell head over heels in love with wedding photography and quit nursing to chase my dreams.

frequently asked questions

Yes, I'm very comfortable shooting in various lighting. Natural light is my favorite but when that is not available I bust out my lights to create my own lighting.

faq

do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?

how many photographers do you work with?

On wedding days I have one other photographer with me. At family sessions, I'll arrive solo.

what do your wedding collections include?

All wedding collections include pre-wedding consultations to finalize a schedule and photo list, wedding day coverage based on collection selected (6-10 hours) delivery of high resolution edited digital files in an online gallery and print release to print your images anywhere you would like!

What do your family sessions include?

All family sessions include edited high resolution digital files in your online gallery and print release to print whereever your heart desires. As a bonus, I include cheesy jokes and fun games to get you to smile and have a great time! 

how long will it take to recieve my photos?

Family sessions will recieve their photos within 2 weeks. Wedding clients will have their photos in no more than 3 weeks.

do you charge for travel?

I do not charge for travel if the wedding or family session is within 150 miles of Duluth Minnesota. Weddings and sessions beyond the 150 mile radius depend on the type of travel (flight, drive, boat ride.. I'm up for any kind of adventure!)
