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…

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…

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!…

Blaine Family Photo Shoot

Hello and happy 2019! I’m just over here reading a bunch of great blogs that nicely wrap up 2018–while, also realizing that I’m not fully done with my 2018 posts. Oops. Maybe by the end of this week I’ll get them finished up–I just have a couple of sessions left to get on the blog…

The Hike That Almost Wasn’t

Just poppin’ in for a minute (or five), here tonight. In my last blog, I made mention that I needed a head clearing hike this weekend. Well, I got it. I squeezed it in bright, and early, on Saturday morning (not really, it was at like 11). It was so cold out–I almost didn’t get…

Outside to Play

So far, the winter here, in Minnesota, has been pretty tame. Not much snow, pretty mild temps–all, in all, it’s been super simple. I’m a winter lover, so snow, cold, ice–I love it all. (Except for driving in it. I don’t do that.) Ya know what I kinda don’t love though? Getting little kids dressed…

Happy Winter Solstice

Tomorrow the days start to get longer–for today though, we celebrate the shortest day of the year. Today, we celebrate the Winter Solstice. There’s something about celebrating today that has become essential for my mental health as the days tick closer, and closer, to Christmas. Somewhere in the middle of all of the commercials, and…

Fall Senior Photos

Hello! It’s fun to be catching up with the whole blog thing–and, look, here I am again. 🙂 I’m just stopping in quickly today to show off a few of my favorite shots of Gabe, from when we shot his senior portraits earlier this Fall. He did something I have never seen done before during…
