Diana — 2010 Simley High School Senior

I photographed Diana at Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis. It was a lovely day, and we had a lot of fun… Diana has some awesome style; it was fun featuring the boots, scarves and outfits that she brought along!

I love photo sessions with unexpected adventure, unplanned locations, and fun surprises. It’s not necessarily what comes to mind when you think of a family photo session, but this shoot with Mandi and Bob, and their almost 1 year old son Brenner definitely had it. We planned the shoot in downtown Hopkins, and really didn’t have many specific ideas on what we’d do there.

The day of the shoot was cold and breezy which was not a good combo for a 1 year old. We did a few shots outside on the street, then popped into the Hopkins Antique Mall on Main Street and asked if we could warm up and take some pictures. We found a great rocking chair and some old books as props. We also popped into the really cool kids store Baby Grand for some photos before heading out to a park for some fall color.

The last stop of the evening was my favorite. We stepped in to one of those great old time barbershops called Jeff’s Barbershop, and asked Jeff if we could put Brenner up in the chair for some shots. Jeff was the coolest barber I’ve ever met. One thing led to another, and Brenner ended up getting his first haircut that day. It was great fun! Thanks guys for the adventure!

Thank you so much for capturing such a precious moment for us and little Brenner! We just loved Jeff and his cute little barber shop too! Fantastic work, I can’t wait to see the rest!

Jon and Jess engagement

Jon and Jess were such a pleasure to photograph. We hiked around Thompson Park in West St. Paul on a beautiful fall day, searching for fun picture spots. These guys are such a great couple, and we had a lot of fun!

Awesome and beautiful photos! Truly a wonderful couple!

Walters family

I photographed the Walters family out at the Dodge Nature Center in West St. Paul on one of those great chilly fall days where you just want to be outside, walking through the woods. So, we did. These guys have a great sense of humor and we all had a lot of fun.

Kirby and Jacob engagement

Kirby and Jacob have that great spark for each other that’s so much fun to photograph. We went around the Stone Arch Bridge/Mill City Museum area of Minneapolis for their engagement photos on a cool, wet Fall day. We managed to stay warm thanks to the use of those little hand warming things when we were outside, and taking time to explore inside the Guthrie Theater for cool photo spots. It was such fun photographing these guys!
