Spring is Here–At Least at the Shop

Wow, guys. This weather is fierce. I’m sitting on the couch tonight–as a fresh, four inches of snow, blankets the ground outside. (And, as my dog snores up a heckuva storm of his own, might I add.) Tomorrow’s weather is looking like a roller coaster of a day–bring on some rain, some sleet, some ice…

The Path is Never Easy

Some random person asked me the other day, ‘What do you do on your hikes? Pictures! Or just looking around?’ And, I really didn’t have an answer. I mean, I did, sorta–but, how to put it in words that didn’t make me sound totally crazy was a challenge. I summed it up, via a quick…

Updates and Links

Tonight finds me on the couch with a boatload of editing up on my laptop screen, and the Golden Girls streaming on the tv screen. The dog is curled up next to me, snoring away; and, through all of this awesomeness, I’ve recently decided that my eyes are a bit too tired to keep the…

Rick and Maggie are Married

Oh…I have some pretty stuff to share today. 🙂 This past weekend, you know–the one with the winter storm warning, and all the rain and then all the snow–well, in the middle of that whole mess, Rick and Maggie got married in a peaceful, bright, ceremony in Bloomington. The snow falling outside, made their evening…

Last Weekends Projects

As promised in my last blog–I’m back after my weekend of shooting. 🙂 (Also, it is SO nice to not be sick anymore. For lots of folks, the weekend is a time to relax–for me, it’s usually the only time of the week I’m out, by myself. It’s great to stretch myself creatively, and set…

Quick Update :: Minnesota Photographer

Hey! I’m just poppin’ in today to say hi. 🙂 I feel like it’s been a long time since I’ve been around the blog, and, honestly, it kinda has. As you probably know, I work for a florist as their blogger, social media manager, website updater, and photographer–also, Valentine’s Day happened. So, my attention was…

Nature, Art, and a Little Recycling, Too

Have I mentioned that I’m kinda in love with my new blog ‘format’!? Well, I am (and, I’ve probably mentioned it a time, or ten 😉 ). It’s really fun to sit down and just write about the things that I’m excited about. 🙂 I feel like I would get super annoyed with writing if…

One Bowl Toasting Bread

2019 is all about the word ‘calm’ for me. My mental health needs calm more than it needs almost anything else these days; so, instead of an personal resolution, I’m just doing that trendy ‘word’ thing. (I have career resolutions, yes. That’s a little different though, and for different reasons.) I’m not very good at…

Forest Lake Family Photos

My sister and I have been saying ‘we’re gonna do it this year’, for a couple years now. And, just like a lot of things in life–we talk a big game, but, time gets away from us. (Well, it doesn’t get ‘away’. It just goes other places. It goes to the kids, to parents, to…

Lino Lakes Family Photography

All right! Here’s family two, of three, to close out my 2018. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the Blaine, Lino Lakes, and Forest Lake area lately–and, these guys are no exception to that. I’ve been working with this, awesome, family since long before the third little one came into the picture. (Hah!…
