Hello! I am the owner of Gray Duck Studios.

I am a natural light photogrpaher located in Minneapolis, MN. I love to play and jump and hop and sing (badly) and tell knock knock jokes all while capturing the true beauty of babies and kids of all ages. I strive to make it a fun experience where real moments, real laughter and real stories are told. I want you to rememebr what's important about life...having fun and being present. Leave the stress behind and lets have some fun!

Fun facts:

  • My husband and I are raising our 2 kids in South Mpls.
  • I love going to a coffee shops to work...
    You might see me at Nokomis Beach Coffee.
  • Any chance I get I love to go to Sea Salt.
  • I dream of one day having chickens as pets.


I just wanted to say thank you for the great pictures! Scott and I have been loving looking through the gallery. You took a photo of me with the baby that made me cry. It’s the photo I’ve been waiting to have someone take of us since he was born! It’s so nice to have a way to really remember this time in his life.
