Focusing on gratitude

Over the last year, I’ve thought a lot about different values I have for Open Air Journal. One of the things I keep coming back to is this concept of gratitude.

How do we find our way to being grateful, regardless of the season we are in? Do you see someone living an everyday “thank you” with his or her life? And how can we encourage this daily practice in each other?

But I don’t want to just talk about gratitude – I want to show it and celebrate it.  That means I’m giving away two free sessions that will focus specifically on the spirit of gratefulness, and I need to YOU tell me about those people in your life who practice it. Share a short description on either my Instagram or Facebook posts, or send me an email at

Important disclaimer: This session will not be a last-minute styled Christmas card photo. No Pinterest-y perfection here! The idea is that we can celebrate the ways we practice gratitude in simple, everyday life. (And while I would loooooove to travel, this giveaway is only open to those within an hour’s drive of the Twin Cities.)

I cannot wait to hear from you!


If you like what you’ve seen on this site and want to schedule a session with me or ask more questions, please reach out! Each session looks different for every person and I do my best to find the right way to capture you.
