Communication

I am having so many issues writing from a place of happiness lately. Not that I believe you should only write from a place of happiness–but, I do think that for things like this blog (and emails to my former boss), I should be a BIT more capable of doing that? Maybe?? I had been…

A Couple New Shots

Last blog, I promised I’d be back with a few new images–to prove to both you, and myself, that I’m actually capable of shooting some new stuff. 😉 I didn’t get out shooting that weekend like I had hoped though–but, that was okay. Other things needed to get done, and they simply became a priority….

Exhibit Update

Hello! A couple weeks ago I wrote about submitting some art to an upcoming, Spring, gallery exhibit at Rum River Art. (The link to that blog is HERE. ) Today, I’m just stopping by the blog to show off the piece that was accepted. 🙂 Also, I’ve actually pulled my camera out to start shooting…

Serenity

This past weekend the theme was ‘Safe’ and I totally skimmed right over it. One reason I missed it? I was, quite simply, not home. I took the kids out of town to visit family and that was that. I could have shot earlier in the week but that brings me to the other reason…

I Want you to Know

This week’s theme? ‘I Want You To Know…’ When I had this idea–I had one, very specific, person in mind. As I shot, I had about three people in my mind. When I posted, I had five people in mind. (All while Then I realized, if I have five-ish people in my life who bore…

Spring Gallery Show Entries

Hello again! I’m circling back around, a bit, to the theme of my last post. The whole realization that I haven’t really made any art, or used the camera as my hobby, since I picked it up for work (like a DECADE ago) was big for me. The bulk of that realization actually came after…

Art Thoughts and Shots

Since things in the world began to hibernate, my life hasn’t really changed dramatically. I’m a pretty introverted, roll-with-the-flow, chill-at-home, type of gal when it comes to what I like to do in my free time. (Aka: I’m reallllly boring–though, I’m definitely never bored.) About nine months into the great hibernation though, ya know right…

Senior Session Three

Another beautiful fall senior session I did recently, was this one. So many leaves, so many colors, so much beauty–and, so much wind! (The wind was actually quite fun for me to play with–as I don’t usually get that in my sessions.) Minnesota did not disappoint this Fall–and, neither did Zoe. I’ve known her almost…

Senior Session Two

So, the day I can get back into the world as a full time photographer again, will be the day that I heavily focus on senior portrait photography. I think that if all I shot were seniors, lifestyle and families, I’d be totally content. ❤ (Love babies, weddings, and events…but, they are more for others….

A Beautiful, Late Summer Wedding

On one of the very last days, of this past summer–I was invited to share the afternoon with these wonderful men. It was an honor to shoot their small, intimate, wedding. Shooting in the beautiful gardens of their home was so fun for me–everything was just gorgeous, in every direction. Anyway, here are a few…
