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…

Anoka Fall Family Session

Hello again! It’s eleven p.m. and here I am–alone, on the couch, with a candle and Christmas tree lit on either side of me. I have Hulu, and a snoring dog, and I couldn’t be happier in this moment. Things are mellow, things are calm, and I can finally get this gorgeous family up on…

Beauty and the Beast Tea Party :: Anoka Photographer

I had no idea photographing a Beauty and the Beast tea party would be this adorable. I mean, I knew it’d be cute–but, this event was like a fairy tale, in real life. This Belle gave those Disney Belle’s a run for their money–her voice was beautiful, as was the way she gracefully commanded a…

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…

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…

A Little Gypsy in Minneapolis :: Children and Family Photography

SO….what do you say when one of your favorite families is like…’Hey, we’re moving to Florida but really want to do one, last, Minnesota photo shoot in Minneapolis.’  Obviously, you say what alley would you like to meet near, and when!?  I am such a sucker for the grungy beauty thing–and this shoot, with Gypsy,…

Fall, Family, Fun :: Coon Rapids Photographer

Well…I’m behind.  I just always have so much to write about–and, so little time to do it.  Though, this whole blogging thing is my favorite thing to do out of most of what I do.  I think it’s like pink Starburst, actually…I save it until the end.  Okay, that analogy was a bit weird.  I…
