First of all, Hello! How are you? I have missed you too!
I feel this is a blog I maybe should have wrote last year or even in 2016. However, life gets busy, and you forget how much you loved connecting through blogging. I want to actually bring this back to 2015, because I never even announced that I moved from Rochester, Minnesota back to the Twin Cities. I expect my business to slow down, but we hit the ground running in the cities, and I never looked back.
I have grown so much since starting this business in 2010, when I first started I had no idea what I wanted to shoot, realistically I barely knew my own camera. We all start some where though, and photography has taught me so much, and I have become a complete different photographer than the girl you met say 4-5 years ago.
Grape Soda Photography for a very long time was about fun, funky, FAMILY photography. While I kept the fun and the funky, I have just moved on to focus on things I truly love. I mainly focus on maternity, birth and fresh 48 sessions. I capture families becoming families!
As a mom to five amazing kids, I think it was only natural that I fell in love with this genre of photography. When families book a session with me, it just isn't about the pictures, it's about the experience. I wanted to give expecting families a one of kind experience they couldn't get any where else. My photography isn't about props, or special locations. It's about the families, and how much this special time in their lives means. I think one other reason I gravitated towards this genre is that as a mom, I don't have these special moments captured, and I want every family to know they deserve to celebrate this moment, and that it is worth the investment for amazing memories.
Another amazing thing I do now is stylized maternity sessions. This is for the mom who really wants to be pampered, wear gorgeous gowns and celebrate that growing bump! I offer professional hair and makeup services, a one on one consult to plan the session of your dreams and an incredible assortment of gorgeous gowns and accessories!
While I am no longer taking on new clients for family photography, I hope you will still follow my journey!

I can't thank all of you for the support you have shown me over the years, without that support Grape Soda Photography wouldn't have been possible. I have worked with so many amazing clients that have become family to me, and I have seen your families grow, move and accomplish so many amazing things. The best part about being a photographer is I get to tell your stories, and I feel blessed every day for this amazing job.
