Rachel and I met through our church. She is seriously one of the sweetest girls in the youth group, and definately a leader! The lighting was spectacular for the day that we headed out to do her senior photos! She wanted something completely different so we went to the Stone Arch Bridge area. Thankfully for a gorgeous Saturday evening, we had very few people to deal with and had a great time together. Rachel's fun and spunky personality made it so easy and enjoyable to photograph her. I might be biased, but I think she is definitely model material!
Shooting location: Downtown Minneapolis

The Sharpe's horses

Animals are like children for photos, you never know what the outcome is going to be! Fortunately carrots and hay don't work as well on children as they do on horses! These two hoses were very compilable with the camera, which made my job easy! Karen and her daughter Danielle are avid riders and competitors, and have been doing it for years. They needed some photos of them with the horses, and we decided to add a little creativity by heading over to a beautiful field late in the afternoon. Here is the outcome!

Chad and Sally...Celebrating 3 years

Well technically in January they will be celebrating 3 years, but now is as good a time as ever! I photographed this wonderfully fun couple in January of 2006. The setting was much different this time than their engagement shoot or their wedding day! (I think it was below zero when we did their engagement shoot, and it was probably the shortest one I have ever done because it was outside!) What a beautiful evening we got for photos as well as color! I look forward to doing more of this couple as the anxiously await the arrival of their new baby in April! Congrats you two!
Shooting location: Centennial Lakes; Edina, MN


I headed out to Elk River to shoot this laid back senior. What an amazing property his family owned, it was ripe for lots and lots of photos. We had a great time exploring all the nooks and crannies of the acreage and we able to come away with some fun shots!
