A surprisingly warm day in December

Today is a surprisingly warm day in December here in Minnesota, and luckily during October we had some lovely warm days for photoshoots also. Here are a few from an amazing shoot with Missy Teff, make up by Kate Pringle Moran.

Hidden entrance to another world

I'm not a wine drinker, but this hidden gem in a client's house in St Paul makes me want to open a bottle!

A Portrait Adventure With Zoe

Now that it's getting cold I am grateful that I got to get out an enjoy the beautiful fall this year. As a bonus I got to work with some really great high school seniors. It's very special to me to have my portraits be their yearbook photos!

Zoe was a little nervous at first, as most of my clients are, but with my direction and silly fart jokes, we had a bunch of fun and got some amazing portraits. What a an adventure!

My favorite part was at this cafe I said "how about a Parisian Cafe look with the wood and the lights?" And Zoe said "Yes, I studied in Paris for a year". Am I a mind reader or what?

Fun and Happy Halloween

This Halloween I photographed three events in one day. What fun!!

Here's a little sneak preview of the event Muse Event Center put on for the Heart of the Beast Theater. Nothing is better than dancing with giant puppets!!

I get to work in the best places

I have the best job in the world and get to go to awesome places. Last week I got to ride the riverboat Minneapolis Queen and had a river view of the changing colors. What a treat!

Overworked and Happy

Numb fingers and shoulder pain, that is what the busy season feels like. Shooting, editing, retouching, rinse and repeat. Good thing I love my chiropractor. No pain, no gain right? 

So here's a little fun from one of my recent Senior Portrait Sessions.

Feeling Cutesy (I must be delirious from exhaustion)

Woke up exhausted but in a GREAT mood. Maybe it's because I made it through a 13 hour event yesterday, maybe because I am waiting on a phonecall about a project I am REALLY looking forward to. Either way I am trying to catch up on emails but took a lunch break and feeling cutesy. So here's some 2 adorable favorites from a session a few months ago that I am archiving.

Pimpin' Ain't Easy

"Pimpin' Ain't Easy." That's what I saw on the back of a semi on the highway today. Then I had the pleasure of photographing this million dollar property in Eden Prairie and that phrase was running around my head. I had to share my photos because I had a blast working here. How could I not?

Getting a little silly

Yasmin and I took a break from her family portrait session to get silly. Not only did she execute a perfect funny face, she was in mid-air when I snapped this silly portrait. Way to go Yasmin! Will post more later but just had to share some silliness tonight.

Kickin it Old School

Today I was photographing on an amazing property with some fantastically fun clients. I had the chance to wander their property and I found this little gem of a shot, so I had to share. I miss developing black and white film some days, and still cannot bring myself to part with my old enlarger.

Melting my heart

I am always honored when I get to photograph a special creative couple, and get to create heartwarming images. That's exactly what happened last Friday. It was a rainy day but we persevered and lucked out with a little bit of a reprieve from the storm. I am so happy how it turned out.

Post Akumal Life

After the crazy adventures in Mexico, it's taking some time to adjust back to Minnesota. I'm missing the fresh food, the great drinks, and the pools.

I finally have had time to catch up and edit the photos from the 5 nights of comedy shows in Mexico. So here goes, 70 photos of fun and great comedy!
