As everyone knows, pets are part of the family too! One of the most exciting times is adding a new member of the family. Or two…
After wanting a Bengal cat for a very long time, this gentleman finally found some Bengal kittens available for rescue! While you’re at it, you really may as well get two I suppose!
These sisters are Zoe and Ling.
I was very lucky in that they were a bit sleepy when I arrived so they were a bit easier to photograph! Not quite as much running and climbing and dashing and chaos as is normal for a Bengal kitten. Here they are!
This was one of my first weddings of the season this year. I wasn’t there for very long but I’m very glad I was able to provide photography for their wedding!
They were both so nervous before their first look it was so sweet! The kids that were in attendance were just adorable and definitely tried to steal the show in their own, sweet little way.
It was raining when we were planning on doing portraits which is always a challenge! My personal philosophy for weddings in the rain is to EMBRACE it. As much as everyone is comfortable of course. As a bonus, you’ll get some fantastic clouds after the storm! For some of the portraits I was standing in the rain, some I used the rain to create a soft background on the portraits and some have rain on my lens.
The ceremony was so sweet and everyone was just a delight to be around. After the ceremony the kids definitely cut loose!
Congratulations Chrissy and Kris! Thank you again for having me!
I have so many art projects I want to work on. This has been something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I just had a very difficult time finding a makeup artist to work with!
I happened to see some of Alley’s work and decided to ask her if she was interested. I was so very thrilled when she agreed!
I was a bit nervous on the day of the shoot and then totally overjoyed when I saw how great everything turned out! I can’t wait to work with her again.
There are so many other things I want to do, if you want to work with me, please let me know!
Deanna is a local yoga and fitness specialist. She also writes a yoga column for the Examiner. She’s a really fantastic resource and a wonderful person to know. If you find yourself in need of her services, definitely contact her! Be warned though, she’s a morning person!
I love working with all kinds of families. This was such a refreshing reminder of the fact that families come in all different shapes and sizes.
Thank you for having me in your lovely home!
Little Sebastian is now 6 months old. He’s changed so much since he was born!
His smile is so sweet and loving. He’s just a charmer. I love being able to go back and follow up with clients and see how they change. I’m so very thrilled to be able to follow him from his mom’s maternity pictures and beyond!
I can’t wait to see him again!
I know I’ve said it before but I love working with models. I love having the chance to work on new things and experiment. Things tend to get a little slow during the winter so it’s a perfect time to try things out!
I met up with Amber in Minneapolis for a little session to add some new material to her portfolio and have a little fun!
Look who’s already one! It’s so crazy that you can still see the squishy little newborn he was in the sweet little boy he’s become. Look at all that blonde fuzz!
For his first birthday his parents got just a TON of balloons and he LOVED them. We used some balloons for the pictures too and they were a big hit.
Happy bithrday little boy!
The Minneapolis Metro Help Squad provided portraits at two locations this year and I was very glad I was able to participate. It’s always such a moving experience to help others and this was a very unique experience.
I look forward to participating again next year.
It’s winter in Minnesota! That doesn’t slow us down very much though. These two weren’t too sure about pictures in general and were apprehensive about going outside too. Once we were all comfortable though, it was great! They were so very sweet and so very in love. It was really wonderful to be around. Oh, and also deeply in love with their dog Gigi!
They were very classic and old school kind of people so I made a lot of the images into black and whites. They were also kind of artsy and had a lot of interesting bird feeders so I used some of that. One of our favorite images is the one where you can’t even see their faces!
He had also joked with me for some time about Photoshopping in some monkeys into their pictures to spice them up. Well, I certainly couldn’t let that one go…
