Every family has a story... Let us help tell yours
Hi! I'm Giliane, and my mission is to help you preserve your family's most special moments in time. I specialize in capturing intimate, honest memories that you will treasure for a lifetime and be proud to display in your home.
I bring an absolute passion for camerawork to every session – in fact, I'm rarely seen without my camera. (I take it with me wherever I go!) Even though my first love is photographing newborns, mums to be, children, and families, you can also catch me snapping away at weddings, cake smash sessions, and outdoor photoshoots, too.
Minnesota families choose me as their preferred photographer because I deliver the highest quality images while making the whole experience enjoyable and fun. I am a true "people person" and love getting to know each of my clients personally before and during their photo shoot! I take the time to form an intimate connection with you and your loved ones to put you at ease when you're in my studio. Working with newborns, kids, and families, you have to be patient, peaceful and serene to get those perfect shots – and my clients say that it's my empathy and caring nature that makes them come back again and again!
I'm also passionate about our environment and I practice green photography methods whenever possible. I'm married to a professional chef and I enjoy visiting antique shops, the smell of summer rain, winter days, gardening, taking walks with our rescue pups, and (of course) cute newborns!
With simplicity and kindness, wide experience and a passion for photography, you can be sure that you will not just have your memories documented in style – you will also have lots of fun at the same time!
