MINI APPLE / BIG APPLE

Just for fun, sometimes I carry my old-school 35mm film camera around in my tote.  This is a random collections of images I captured on that camera in Minneapolis and New York.  A few of the photos including the first and last, were taken from the observation deck of the Foshay Tower in downtown Minneapolis.  A former client-turned-friend was visiting from Boston, and she invited me to be a tourist with her for a day.  I couldn’t say no!  We had the observation deck all to ourselves and had fun taking pics and enjoying the views. I wish she lived closer so we could go on random adventures more often!

HANNAH, RANDY & BLACKIE

Isn’t Blackie just the cutest?! It’s no secret I am completely obsessed with dogs! Hannah reached out to me after seeing my blog post dedicated to dogs and said that her and her husband wanted pictures with their sweet Blackie just because. This little family started out at my studio, where Blackie obeyed and listened oh-so-patiently (!!) then we headed to Rice Creek Park for some fun outdoor photos where Blackie could be more in her element. She is so loved and spoiled, as every dog deserves. Thanks for inviting me to capture your beautiful family.  You guys are the sweetest and I loved our time together!

MOLLY & STEVE | LAKESIDE ENGAGEMENT

Congrats to Molly & Steve!!  I met this gorgeous couple on the perfect summer evening for an engagement session.  It was one of those nights where there is no place on earth you’d rather be than enjoying the beautiful lakes of Minnesota.  The couple chose two special spots for their session- both of their home neighborhoods.  Molly lives on the river on St Anthony Main and Steve lives on Lake Minnetonka.  They love the water, and for their session, it was the perfect mix of city and nature.  Molly and Steve will tie the knot in 2016, and I’ll be waiting (im)patiently for their big day!!
