Family Portrait Session | Centennial Lakes | Edina, MN

I have been photographing Laura’s family for a decade ….. where does the time go?!

We met at Centennial Lakes Park in Edina …. which you just can’t go wrong on a gorgeous fall evening with so many incredible backdrops to choose from!

It has been so incredible to watch the kiddos blossom into young adults, and the parents not age at all (right?!).

Laura has been my Life Coach, yoga instructor, and dear friend. We met through a mutual friend, and she approached me to see if I would be willing to trade Life Coaching in exchange for yoga photos — as she was compiling a yoga instruction manual for yoga teachers at the time. I knew she was exactly the right Coach for me, and over the past decade we have spent hundreds of hours on the phone, and taken thousands of photos her, her family, and her team.

I am blessed to do what I do, and meet some truly amazing people along the way. You just never know which clients are going to end up being forever friends when you photograph them!!

I am bringing back my limited edition metallic “Purple Reign” prints for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday ….. ACT FAST …. before they’re gone!! (no logo will appear on purchased prints, and they will be hand signed and dated).

This is a perfect gift for any Minneapolis or Prince enthusiast, and can also double as a gift for Viking’s fans as well!! Thank you for your continued support of my art!

Receive a FREE 3×5 Magnet with every print ordered!! ($12 value!)

This photo is my tribute to the purple, and was featured on National Geographic’s website, as well as it was trending on social media in the weeks following Prince’s death. I am thrilled with how it turned out, and believe that Prince would definitely approve …. not only of my image, but of the mad respect and love that Minneapolis has shown him.

When I set out to photograph the 35W bridge lit up purple in his memory, it was rainy and foggy. My friend and I couldn’t find the spot we were looking for to take the image from. We missed our turn and were getting frustrated. We agreed to take one my attempt at finding the spot. As we came around a corner somewhere on the U of M campus, the rain let up and this photo came into view. A friendly raccoon hung out with us as we battled the strong winds in an attempt at not getting blurry images with a 20 second exposure. I truly believe Prince smiled down on us as I took this image, and it is a memory I will never forget!  Thank YOU for supporting my art by purchasing this image.

Rest in peace, sweet Prince.

Jeff & James Engagement Session | Centennial Lakes | Minneapolis

I had the pleasure of photographing Jeff & James engagement session this past weekend at Centennial Lakes park. The weather was an absolutely perfect fall day, we couldn’t have asked for better.

I will be photographing their wedding in January, which will also take place in the Centennial Lakes park area, and I couldn’t be more excited. They are the kindest, fun loving couple a photographer could hope to work with (not to mention they’re super photogenic!)

Enjoy the sneak peek!

Roshini Rajkumar & Jim | Minneapolis Wedding | WCCO Rooftop Garden

I was incredibly honored to have been asked by Roshini to photograph her wedding on the WCCO Rooftop in Minneapolis this past July.

I have known Roshini for several years, we first met when I photographed her for the cover of Savvy MN magazine. She has been an amazing friend and peer to work with, it was a true privilege to be a part of her small, intimate wedding.

She looked absolutely stunning in her grandmother’s revamped Sari (altered by A Perfect Fit by Monica), and Jim was quite dapper in his suit by Hubert White and accessories by Martin Patrick 3.

They were surrounded by their closest friend and family, and had an incredible view of the Minneapolis skyline.

Please enjoy the sneak peek!

Kait & Ben | NE Minneapolis | Backyard Wedding

They say that rain on your wedding day is good luck, and these two took the weather in total stride. They were true champs about the rain and didn’t let it damper their spirits one bit.

Kait & Ben were married in their backyard surrounded by their closest friends and family in an intimate ceremony. It was absolutely gorgeous, and the bride was completely stunning in her Leanne Marshall wedding gown.

The sky darkened the rain began just as the bride was about to walk down the aisle. She said to those sitting in their chairs “It’s just a little water, it won’t hurt you!” They weather cleared up just in time for their first dance and toasts, and everyone had an amazing time.

I am truly blessed to have some of the greatest clients in the world, and I can’t wait to watch this couple’s family grow 🙂

Enjoy the sneak peek!!

Kiera | Photoshoot | Saint Paul

Kiera came in for her photoshoot last week on one of the most gorgeous days! It was beautiful out, and not yet humid and gross!

I know Kiera’s grandmother through my women’s writing group, and it was such a pleasure to get to know her. She is such a great kid, and anytime you can get a 14 year old to giggle and smile you know you’re doing ok!!

We took some outdoor photos on the property, and don’t worry ~~ the train tracks are historic and dead, and we have permission to be on the property!!

Enjoy the sneak peek!!
