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…

Senior Session One

Things are so odd in life right now. I’ve taken a leave of absence from my position with the youth group, and my hours are non-existent at my other job…yet, I’m so busy each day that I can’t seem to catch up with anything. Distance learning, and three kids at home, is no joke. Each…

Privilege and Division

I’ve hit this place lately in my blogging that is, once again, a place of blockage. I mean, I have composed several blogs over the past few weeks–foraging, recipes, whiny rants…you know, the usual. However, they’re all currently sitting in blogatory (that’s like purgatory for blogs, aka: ‘draft’ form). It’s just that the world has…

I’ll Work on It–All of It

Hello! It’s me…your cranky neighborhood friend, back at it. 😉 I apologize, again, for my annoyance with the folks needing to vent in my last blog post. I was being rude, and way too inwardly focused. Rarely, do I see something shared on Facebook that makes me reevaluate my own thoughts, but today I did….

Sean and Draken Get Married

I believe I have about 17 blog posts that I’ve written, or partially written, sitting in my draft folder currently. I come here, I have huge ideas, I write my little heart out, and then I doubt the entire thing–so, I don’t post it. It’s not so much writer’s block–it’s more of a posting block,…

Anoka Family Photography

Hey! I’m back with some photography today! All those dandelion recipes were fun–but, I figured I should pop in with some work stuff, too. 🙂 A beautiful backyard, full of blooming lilacs, was the catalyst for the the timing of this family photo session. It was really fun for me to swing by their home…

Some Small Business Shots

Hello again! As I mentioned in my last blog–this past weekend, I was working with a small business, Lillians of Anoka, to get the owner some fresh photos. She has hired a marketing team to come in and help her out with some social media stuff, and she is also planning to freshen up her…

The Hike That Almost Wasn’t

Just poppin’ in for a minute (or five), here tonight. In my last blog, I made mention that I needed a head clearing hike this weekend. Well, I got it. I squeezed it in bright, and early, on Saturday morning (not really, it was at like 11). It was so cold out–I almost didn’t get…
