My experience as a photographer has been portrait work in the central Minnesota area for over 5 years. I also traveled with my camera extensively after college to many national parks and backpacked China. While backpacking China I made a photojournalistic book of my travels. Since graduating college with an Advertising & Marketing AAS Degree and traveling I have started my own photography business (www.dtphotompls.com) in the Minneapolis area.
My favorite part of being a photographer is seeing reactions of people after seeing the final edited product. People really appreciate it when you can make them look as beautiful as they feel. Photography is a great way to express my creativity and make connections with my clients. Photography has led me to meet many new people, and taken me to places I never thought I would have gone.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done plenty of wedding, engagement, maternity, gender reveal, and family photo shoots. I pride myself in connecting with the subjects to make them feel relaxed and comfortable. Its important to make sure everyone involved is happy and engaged in the moment. I have patience and understanding for young kids as they can often be hard to direct. I don't like making my clients wait so I always get the final photos to my clients in a timely and efficient manner

A fun fact about this photographer
I struggled all though grade school and college due to my dyslexia. It wasn't until I found photography where I finally felt I was talented at something.
