Springfield Family

The Springfield family are close friends of ours from our church. This is the second year that I have photographed their family for their Christmas photo. Because she wanted a more rustic looking location, Julie found a perfect place for their family; the Anoka County fair grounds. What a fun venue! It was perfect for what she was looking for, and we hit it at just the right time lighting wise, the sunset was beautiful. I look forward to many more shoots of this beautiful family!
Shooting location: Anoka County fair Grounds; Anoka, MN

Caeli and Nick... Waiting for August

Caeli and Nick were a referral to me. When we met to discuss their wedding, we hit it off right away! They are such a cool and collected couple. Their wedding date is set for August at St. Thomas, and the reception to follow at Edina Country Club. We traveled around the St. Paul area to the place where the couple was engaged, over to campus, and then to Caeli's backyard to photograph some surprise photos for Nick's family, who owns a palette company. We just had to do some photos with the palettes, and they even made me laugh with some stories including "gold palettes!"
Shooting location: St. Thomas; St. Paul, MN

The Johnson Family

One of my roommates from college, Beth, called to see if I would be willing to photograph their entire extended family. Because this month is much slower than last month, it was easier for me than it was for them! Finding the time to get all the Johnson's together was very difficult, especially when there are 26 people involved! Thankfully, we still had some great and amazing November weather to shoot in, and we hit up Theodore Wirth Parkway to do some fun shots of the entire family with the leaves and crisp fall air.
Shooting Location: Theo Wirth Parkway; Minneapolis, MN

Looking through the lens in a new way

Erik's Bike Shop: Corporate Office; Bloomington, MN
The Good Shepherd Church; Golden Valley, MN

Z Pizza; Roseville, MN Southdale Internal Medicine; Edina, MN
I was hired by the Bainey Group, an organization that does reconstruction and construction of indoor and outdoor locations, and I have to admit, I have been challenged...and LIKE it! Looking though the lens of the camera in a whole new way, for advertising purposes, brings me a thrill. (Iknow it sounds weird!) Plus they are a company that does amazing work and works with the clients to suit their needs. Some of the locations that I have been shooting include: Erik's Bike Shop, The Good Shepherd Church, Z Pizza (a fab new pizza chain from the west cost), and Southdale Internal Medicine. Special thanks to Chuck and Gina for landing me these jobs!
