I'm Eva (short for Geneva) and I'm a natural light, lifestyle family photographer specializing in capturing candid, growing families. I'm a born and raised Minnesotan (complete with accent); and while I occasionally dream of warm winters, beautiful beaches, and Christmas lights in palm trees, I know that I love the Midwest for its greatest commodity: family. Yours and mine. My immediate family consists of my husband, son and a small zoo of dogs and cats (and even a grumpy bunny).

I used to hide behind the camera (as you can see above, I still try to hide a bit) but I learned after the birth of my son how important it is to capture the moments of our families before they grow and change (and it happens so fast!).  What's even harder is persuading myself to get into the picture - after all, we moms are part of the family too, not just the "family photographer"!  I want my children to know how I looked as a young mom and to see how much they were loved.  I hope that is why you will let me help you get out from behind that camera - because you are perfect as you are.

I've been a working mom, a stay-at-home mom, and a part-time working mom.  I know how hard it is to get everyone together in the car with shoes on - so I come to you, as a completely on-location photographer.  I know how daunting it can be to get everyone into an outfit that coordinates and looks good in photos - so I offer wardrobe advice and help during our pre-session consult.  And I know what its like to be missing from family photos because so often, we are taking them - so I specialize in whole families so you can be a part of your newborn, child, and family photos.
