Meet me

Duluth MN lifestyle

Bless Bailey Aro for documenting my mess




I love big, laugh big and trip over my own feet. totally NOT EMBARRASSED.

Coffee, chocolate, wine. And that's a finished sentence.

Hubby? Check. Cloth diapers? Check. A humungo, beautiful mess? Check.


“My confidence soared as the shoot went on.
She makes the ordinary beautiful.”

"I am normally quite particular about how I’d like my kids to be dressed or how I’d like my house to be orderly to be photographed but I just let it go and wow.....It captures the moments we share in the rawness of everyday life. Thank you Miranda! Not for just the photos but for showing me the beauty I tend to overlook!”

— Jonelle

"To have my favorite people and favorite place in the world captured permanently and in such a magical way means the world to me. You got such a good side of us! But still such a real side. I can't thank you enough."

- The Coles


family sessions
“We LOVE it all! Thank you is not a strong enough phrase to express how grateful we are.”
— Dani & Jason


Each session requires two payments of $250 + tax


We begin in your home. We explore your backyard and favorite spots.

Family is more than a pretty portrait.

You laugh in the face of perfection.

Sticky hands and dirty faces don't scare you.

You're searching for substance.

You want the real stuff, tangible love, the diaper changes, and snuggles.
