I absolutely adore Gina! She is someone I consider myself very lucky to know and to call a friend. She has an amazing heart & soul, and is so compassionate. She gives so much to others through her photography and her motivational work. I love Gina’s aesthetic and was so excited when she asked me to capture images for her new website. (Go check it out immediately!!) I love how Gina styled her session and the crisp, white, outdoor location she chose.

Today would’ve been my little sweetie’s 6th birthday. Our little pup got sick, and there was nothing we could do but cherish the time we had left with her. For those who have lost a pet, a beloved family member, you know how painful it is and I just wish I could snuggle her soft muzzle one more time or take her for one more walk just to see the pure joy on her face. I really miss my Bianca every single day. I wanted to share one picture, in her honor. Even though you can’t see her cute lil’ mug in this image, I love it because it just shows our little family, the way we were. When my husband saw this image, he laughed and simply said, “Pleasure.” Bianca is in pure heaven being cuddled by us. We were her whole world, and she was ours. I will always love this photo and I can’t thank our friends Kelsy & Butch enough for capturing this session for us. I’m so happy we have these photos because less than 3 months after they were taken we found out Bianca had terminal cancer. As sad as I am that Bianca is gone, I am so grateful for all the sweet memories we have in our hearts. She meant so much to us.
I wanted to share a few images from my editorial shoot with Miss Macailah of Take A Lovely Look. Macailiah is a teen fashion blogger, taking the world by storm, already having been featured in Teen Vogue and Lucky Magazine, to name a few! She was recently flown to NYC for a shoot with Teen Vogue and has a print feature coming out soon that I absolutely cannot wait to see! I always love shooting with her and an inspired by her quirky, hip fashion sense. Thanks to our friends Dave & Don for letting us use their lovely home in Saint Paul for our shoot.
