Hello and welcome. I’m Lynsey Tjaden (the T is silent so it’s pronounced Lynsey Jaden). I’m a Twin Cities based photographer and lifelong Minnesota resident. I grew up in northern Minnesota but have called Minneapolis my home for 20 years. I photograph architectural/interiors, food, products, lifestyle and portraits for family, small business and commercial clients.
I often get asked what I love most about photography. What a question. In one sentence, photography speaks to the world. Following the work of world renowned photographers is both humbling and breathtaking. Photographers inform the world and it is an important (and hard) job, especially in our current world where there’s a fragility in journalism. For me, I love working with a variety of clients with a variety of needs and goals where no two shoots are the same. I’m inspired by people, light and places – and I work to capture the essence of the moment or place.
When I’m not working you will most likely find me hanging with my husband and our two young sons. We love our home and neighborhood and find lots of fun things to do right here – pizza nights, visiting the parks and our beloved Minnehaha Creek, biking, hiking, and swimming at the beaches. As our little guys have gotten older they are always up for an adventure and we are on the go!
