Super cute kid in a lion costume for Halloween family mini session shoot Excelsior Minnesota

Hey, I'm Natalie.

I'm a lifestyle photographer based in Minnesota.


I specialize in free-flowing family sessions & creative headshots.


I try my best to highlight movement, emotion, and real life. Those things hit me right in the heart, every time.


I try my best to avoid perfectly-posed large group portraits & events. After trial and error, they're not my strength or interest.


Here's where to begin:

"Anyone who has a chance to make Natalie a part of the special moments in their life is very lucky."

Beyond being an extremely talented and professional photographer, Natalie is a personable, kind, fun, and all-around wonderful person! Aside from having her there for a practical reason, we were just glad to have her be a part of our wedding day this October. Her enthusiasm extended throughout the day, and we felt both supported in her insights and free to be ourselves. Looking at the photos, which are downright stunning, by the way, everything appears just as we experienced it: full of joy, wonder, beauty, and happiness. Anyone who has a chance to make Natalie a part of the special moments in their life is very lucky. xxx

Natalie is the best if you want inspired, arty photos taken by a down-to-earth, creative and lovely person. She'll make you (and your children) feel comfortable and you will love your photos! I highly recommend Natalie.

"I can't imagine ever hiring anyone else!"

Natalie is amazing to work with and we absolutely love the family pictures she has captured for us the last three years. The sessions are easy, fun and casual, but capture special moments.

"Her calm attitude and professional approach really put two camera-shy people at ease."

Natalie's work is incredible, and she is incredible to work with. I was very particular when it came to picking out a photographer, and I fell in love with Natalie's work right away. She was so fun to work with during our wedding and was great at getting the whole wedding party to relax and laugh and be silly. Her candid shots are some of my favorites of the day. She got amazing and unique shots of everyone, and made our wedding day look even more beautiful that we remembered it. Our venue even had some tricky lighting, with candles and fireplaces and old antique fixtures, and Natalie rose to the challenge and got some absolutely breathtaking shots. I can't stop looking at them!

"It would be an understatement to say that we are BEYOND HAPPY."

"I'm so impressed with her work, and I highly recommend her!"

I literally can’t say enough about Natalie! She is probably the most epic photographer I have ever encountered! She photographed our woodys whimsical wedding and our at home engagement photos. We were so thrilled with our photos and even just the honor of meeting Natalie herself! She is so special, she captured things just the way I had envisioned and more! She is just so freaking GREAT! HIRE HER!!!!


-Lauren C.

I don't particularly like getting my photo taken and was not excited about having to be the focal point of our wedding photography. But Natalie made us feel so comfortable and made it a completely fun and relaxing experience. Her professionalism, timeliness and sweet personality made her the perfect choice for us. Let's not forget, the pictures are absolutely stunning works of art. She captured our story and the happiness of the day just as I will always remember it.


-Sara P

"She is just so freaking GREAT! HIRE HER!!"

"I'd very highly recommend her."

We have had Natalie for just over SEVEN years, typically twice a year family photos. There has never been a session that I would not rate with the highest stars/feedback possible. Her talents are beyond belief and her ability to capture true moments with kids is incredible. I can promise an easy going session with beyond 100% satisfaction with your images. True lifestyle and love how she mixes in a few poses or customizes to your needs/wishes. Enjoy!
