Be Yourself, Seniors | St. Paul Portrait Photographer

We love meeting the people who will be running the world in the next generation.  They accept their weirdness, love their quirks, and enjoy indie fringe more than peers of our same age, or older.  They're lucky...

Five Things Photography Has Taught Me

I didn’t start out loving photography, I didn’t come to it because of a passion.  There is no history or taking photos of people in my childhood, no sentiment for the art.

And that doesn't even include any photography of our other...

Minneapolis: A Gem of a City

Over the past four years we've learned how to be more than just sisters.  We've learned how to work together as business partners. We've learned how to tell each other politely to shut up, how act coy when we realize the other...

Rest, too | Headshots with the Woodford Sisters

My barista (yes, he's MY barista) asked me how I was this morning and I entered into a dissertation about how tired I was but that it didn't make sense because I cut out sugar and have been getting...
