Summer, Summer, Summer Time

I totally understand that what I say next is going to be controversial–I can’t help the way I feel though. Here it is…I’m not a fan of summer. Of all the seasons, it’s my least favorite. Summer is simply something I deal with to get back to Fall. If it’s over 70 degrees, and sunny–I’m…

Saint Anthony Family Session { Minneapolis Area Photographer }

For someone who calls herself a Minneapolis Area Photographer…I really don’t get to shoot IN Minneapolis to often–so, today was pretty cool. (Also, it was, literally, pretty cool out. And, windy. I’m not always super thankful for sun while shooting–but, today, I was.)  I LOVE when clients want to go urban with their shoot, btw–especially when…

Tweets and Blogs :: Minneapolis Family Photographer

Hello! I come here a lot…thinking about what to say, and then I realize the best things I have to say, lately, are poppin’ up over there —————> (and down a bit). I’m on Twitter, often, connecting with other Bloggers, Photographers, Minnesota folks, and friends. Every time I Tweet…it pops up over there. Also, I’m…

Candy Cards

Easter had me seeing candy everywhere I went — so, I used it to both inspire, and motivate me. The result, a new line of greeting cards, and a couple of pounds. The cards will, as of this, upcoming, weekend,  be available exclusively from Sweet River Candy, on Main Street, in Anoka.  They may also become…

Rejection { Minneapolis Area Photographer and Writer }

I’m living in a week of rejection. (You think I’d be used to it, on some level, living with a 13 year old girl–or, at least I’d be a bit more numb to it. Nope though.) Getting rejected as a freelancer is, basically, getting turned down for a job promotion in the corporate world. With us…

2015 Personal Favorites :: Minnesota Photographer

As promised, here is a collection of my favorite, personal, photos from 2015. Also…there’s not much to see here. In the past ten years, this was my second worst year for personal work. It’s not for lack of creativity…it’s more for these two reasons: one, I spend a ton of my time photographing for others;…

Whew! I Made It. Almost. :: Twin Cities Photographer

Who’s no where…yet everywhere, lately? Me. Because it’s December, and I am a photographer with my own clients, who also works in retail as a blogger, social media manager, email blast writer and creator, website updater and, of course, photographer.  (See old blog, about ‘other jobs’, here.)  This blog is going to focus on those…

At Home with B { Twin Cities Area Lifestyle Photography }

There are SO MANY, incredibly, awesome things that happen when you photograph the same family each year. You watch them grow. You capture change. You know the chemistry that you’re dealing with and you know how to work with the kiddos. I think my families like it too. They’re comfortable with me. They don’t have…

Minnehaha Falls Photo Walk :: Minneapolis Photography

Remember my blog a couple weeks ago all about the upcoming, Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk?  Well, this past Saturday was the day–and it was a gorgeous one, at that!  Myself, and about 30(ish) other walkers, met up at Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis at 9am.  It was a cool, but sunny–so, it didn’t feel terrible….

Fall Newsletter :: Minneapolis Photographer

Every now and then, I get my newsletter out.  It’s kinda like that whole super moon, blood moon, eclipse thing that just happened…it’s a rare event, but, when it happens it’s epic.  (Actually my newsletter isn’t that epic at all…it’s just a way to connect to folks who had probably forgotten all about signing up…
