Grape Soda Photography | Investment

I hear it all the time...why should I invest in custom photography? 

Thirty years from now when you look back at family portraits, do you want a snap shot? Or something really special? Custom photography captures a fleeting moment in time, something you can not redo. From birth photography to wedding photography, we are capturing life at it's rawest moments. I can attest to this best.

My son was born prematurely at 35 weeks, after having a stroke in utero. I knew right away, that I wanted photographs! I didn't know what was going to happen, and I didn't know what the future would hold. I just wanted one moment with my baby so I could remember him that way forever.

Today is the day to invest in a session, for yourself and for the generations that come after you.


About my Sessions

I am lifestyle photographer in Inver Grove Heights, MN. I specialize in photographing the most important people in your life and the most important days in your life.  I specialize in Maternity, First Glimpse, Birth and Documentary Family Portriture. Maternity is near and dear to my heart as a mommy to five beautiful babies, and I just can't resist capturing those sweet toes, lips and wisps of baby hair. I work with you from the first inquiry to the portrait hanging on your wall to make sure you have a fabulous custom photography experience. If you are simply looking for a photographer to click the shutter and hand over digital files, I am most likely not the photographer for you. But, if you are looking to capture a moment in time, that you will be able to enjoy for many years to come through portrait wall art, custom designed products and one of a kind service, then you have come to the right place!
