This is our team.

  • Sarah Pierce


    “My greatest reward is helping clients see their beauty and capturing a fabulous image that they can be proud to use for their professional and social profiles.”

    Sarah listens to her clients and is very detail oriented. She’s owned her business for 10+ years and focused the last 7 years solely on photographing professional headshots. She has photographed thousands of professional headshots from every field including attorneys, physicians, non-profits, small business owners, actors, and aspiring models.

    “We all tend to focus on those physical traits that we don’t like, like a crooked tooth or those pesky crows feet. Things that most people might not even notice. I like to find the good things about each client. Sparkling eyes. An infectious smile. Dimples. Because when we focus on our good qualities, our true personality will shine through the photos.”

    Sarah started with film in college and developed her own prints (the old fashioned way — in the darkroom!) She now uses digital cameras full time and loves keeping up with technology. She graduated from Concordia University in 1999 with a BA in Organizational Management and Communications. She is a proud member of theProfessional Photographers of America.

    “Trust. It’s a hard thing to trust someone to capture your professional photo. It’s personal, it’s your your brand, it’s YOU. I find that when clients put their trust in me, it eases the process and helps me capture the best possible images.”

    Sarah is married to Dan and they have two children (ages 14 and 17) and a rescue dog named Clyde. They reside in Chanhassen, MN and love visiting Duluth, where Sarah was born. Sarah loves decorating, persistently trying to keep her plants and flowers alive, and going to church.

  • Erik Bell

    Providing Photography Services and Administrative Support

    “Headshot photography is a unique profession. You are providing a service where the ultimate goal is a person being able to see the absolute best version of themselves. This is the most satisfying feeling.”

    Erik is a talented photographer, musician and all-around great guy. He recently moved here from California where he used his 10 years of administrative experience to manage a photography studio in downtown L.A. He has a knack for helping our clients look and feel their best and his friendly personality puts everyone at ease.

    Erik graduated from Bethany College in Santa Cruz, CA where he pursued his two greatest passions: music and photography. When he’s not working at the studio, he is an Audio Engineer and teaches guitar and drums.

    He lives in Minneapolis with his fiance and their 1-year-old daughter. He’s excited to see and experience all that Minneapolis has to offer. We’re sure our “Minnesota nice” will keep him around for years to come.

  • Sam Mulvihill

    Providing Retouching Services

    “I love being able to enhance a person’s appearance in a way that looks natural and accentuates their best features. The final touches make a big difference and help clients feel more confident about their headshots.”

    Sam is our resident retouching expert. She handles each one of our client images with great care.

    When she’s not using her computer skills to zap under-eye circles and polish teeth, Sam can be found attending concerts, hanging out with her dog Sigmund, or working on her next illustration project.
