Just a Day

I get wary about writing blogs like the one I intend to write here. There’s nothing political, no controversial topics being covered, and everything will be safe for work–I just hesitate. I do that for a few reasons, I guess. For one, in my line of work, and within my family, and my own way…

Anoka’s Hometown Holiday Celebration :: Minnesota Photographer

Last night…the big tree, in downtown Anoka was lit up for the Christmas season–and, I was there to capture the whole evening. Santa rolled in around three on an old fire truck, and from there, Mrs. Claus chatted with all the folks waiting to see him in his shack. The local Boy Scouts sold S’mores…

Minnesota Co. Clothing Shoot :: Anoka Photographer

I just wanted to pop in here tonight to share a few of the images I recently shot while working with the Minnesota Co. — based in Anoka, MN.  Between Instagram giveaways, a recently launched website, a new blog, and ongoing social media postings…they needed some fresh shots of their best, cold-weather, MN apparel–which is…

Photography for Kids :: Teaching in Anoka

Today feels so good. The workshop I’ve been prepping to teach for months is done. 🙂 I presented this past weekend, to a group of teachers, my ideas to help connect the art of photography to kids–while also keeping a creative, sane, and fun classroom experience happening. It was such a great lecture to put…

Some Head Shots for an Actress :: Anoka Photographer

Sometimes, I meet folks who seem to have it so together, at such a young age, that I immediately feel like more of a mess in my ‘older’ age. When I met ‘S’, that’s exactly what happened. First of all…this girl is 13. Her soul though…well, I believe her soul is probably hundreds of years…

Anna Senior Shots :: Saint Paul Photographer

Okay. Note to self…before using Mears Park as the perfect, shooting spot that it is–check the Saint Paul Saints schedule. Wow. I’m really good at double checking to make sure that things aren’t under construction, or closed…but, I totally blew off the fact that this park is one block away from a baseball stadium, and…

Harrison { Twin Cities Family Photographer }

Today, I got to meet Harrison. He was calm, and alert, and so very, very, handsome. He liked to watch everything that his little eyes could make out, and he liked to listen just as much. Today, I also got to witness the very beginnings of a brand new family. They were born into this…
