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. ūüôā 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…

2015 Clients :: Twin Cities Area Photographer

I, absolutely, love doing these blogs; my best of blogs. I tried to get it done before 2016 started but, well, I didn’t…so, I’m going to start this three-parter now. This post is all about my clients. My daily. My reason for always wanting to learn more, do better, push myself, and give more. 2015…

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 North Shore Family Trip

Ever do something–something that you really put your entire self into, something maybe outside of your comfort zone, something you’re nervous about and that takes a lot of planning, you know–something like a week long vacation, in a single level home, with nine other people (18 months-70(ish) years), six hours away from home? Well, I…

A LATE Capture Minnesota Blog Entry :: Anoka Area Photographer

{{This was written a couple weeks ago…and, I never finished posting it. ¬†I realized that, when I came here today to start a new blog post–oops. ¬†Anyway, I’m gonna post it today.}} ¬†I just thought I’d pop in today to share a few photos, and a video, from this past weekend. ¬†It was a busy…

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…

Fall Family Photos :: Minneapolis Photographer

So…uhm, I feel like I’m cheating this Fall. ¬†The weather has been SO nice and the colors so vivid that, as a Photographer, I feel as if I could go out there and shoot with my eyes closed and still get stunning results. ¬†I don’t ever remember a more perfect fall here in Minnesota. ¬†Do…
