Marketing & Studio Manager; Creative Artist

Amber is a writer, a photographer, a scrapbooker, a perfectionist, a coffee lover and a lover of a Jesus. She is married to her high school sweetheart, and calls the Twin Cities her home after moving from Wisconsin for college. 


She has always been passionate about writing. Ever since she was young, instead of playing on the playground with the other kids, she would find herself on her own writing stories. This creativity soon turned into an interest in photography. As the years went by she became more passionate about inspiring others by combing her writing with her photography. 


While studying at the University of Northwestern—St. Paul, she started her own photography business while pursuing her degree in Journalism. One of Amber’s recent photography projects, involving women and men who have overcome or are currently overcoming self-hate, led her to Sugar & Spice Photography where she is now encouraging self-love to women every single day.

Katya was born & raised in Almaty, Kazakhstan and has the most adorable accent.  You may find yourself asking her to read the phonebook to you...any excuse to keep her talking.  She has lived in Minnesota for 15 years & has 2 busy, cute boys (ages 10 & 12) that keep her on the move all the time.


Photography has always been a passion of hers, but when she came to Sugar & Spice Photography for her own photo shoot years ago, she fell in love with the entire experience, the mission and the team.  She made friends she had prayed for...that care for her, love her and inspire her - and she wants each woman that comes to the studio to feel the same way! 


Katya thinks that every woman is beautiful - and celebrates their differences - because she believes we were created by God...and He never makes mistakes.  Seeing women rediscover their inner beauty & confidence during their photo shoot - brings happiness to her. 

In addition to her work with Sugar & Spice, she is an amazing lifestyles photographer - able to capture the perfect moments, so check out her work with her company, KN Photography.

Lyndsay is a Southern gal, born & raised in Texas.  She moved to the Twin Cities 9 years ago & lives her with her husband, Chris, their sons Braxton & Hendrix ....her Persian Cat, Mr. Pants and Thurman Merman, her dog.

She is truly a passionate & creative individual who loves to laugh and finds joy in people!  In order to entertain her energetic & free spirit, her parents enrolled her in dance at the age of three.  At the age of 14, she was accepted into San Antonio's School of Fine Arts where she delved into musical theatre whiel continuing her dance education and competing nationwide.  Eventually, the performing arts led her into both choreography & dance instruction.  She immensely enjoyed many years as a traveling coyote for Coyote Ugly Saloon.  

Lyndsay's experiences have given her the opportunity to dabble in yet another of her passions:  makeup and hair - and thrives on using her creativity at Sugar & Spice.

This talented gal can do it all!  If you need hair/makeup for weddings, pageant, photo shoots and more...check out her work!
