life as a parent can be summed up in two simple words:

beautiful chaos.

I think most parents feel the chaos on a daily basis.

And when we're in the middle of the chaos, things get easy to miss. I want to be here to help you remember the beauty.

I'm a Twin Cities-based family photographer, and I believe my job is to document the unique connection between you and your humans. The static, cookie cutter, everyone-looking-and-smiling-at-the-camera images don't really speak to me. But the energy, the chaos, the belly laughs, and the tender hugs that sneak in in-between? Those end up being the moments unique to your family and your love for each other, and those are the stories I gravitate toward telling. And at the end of it all, we'll make sure to get that artwork up on your walls as a lasting reminder of the beautiful life you're building together.

Sound like your cup of tea? Contact me to get started!

Hey, I'm miranda!

and i'm obsessed with storytelling imagery.

As a documentary-gone-portrait photographer, my philosophy is simple: it's my job to capture your story by focusing on the connection between you and your loves.

Do you love having your photo taken? For most of us, that's a no. But do you love your humans? Do you make each other laugh? Do your kids love to run, jump, spin, and play? Then I've got you covered. You'll be walking away with new memories and beautiful photos documenting it all.

My Philosophy

connection > Perfection

Give me all the dirty knees, the wispy, windblown hair, the laugh-so-hard-you-cry moments. I want your photos to reflect you and the stories your photos tell to be real. I gravitate toward the small stories that happen throughout your photo session, rich in authentic connection and true emotion. (I'll never ask you to laugh. Promise.)

lots of love per photo > lots of photos w/ little love

I put a lot of blood, sweat, and (happy) tears into editing each and every photo you receive, which means that most collections require paring down your proof gallery into your must-have images (so hard on you and me both! 😩) But - fear not: each collection I offer includes more than enough photos for your walls and heirloom albums! (Gotta have them all? There's a package for that, too!)


Every portrait collection I offer includes an artwork credit for photographic prints & print products from your session. I don't want "order prints" to be a nagging item on your to-do list for 12 months, so I help to ensure you're getting those wall-worthy images up on your walls (don't worry - you still get your digitals, too 😊)

If your vibe is static, posed photography with angelic smiles for the camera in every image, I'm probably not the photographer for you.
