I've been meaning to share this set for a while now. Here's little "S", who is on my watch me grow program. This was our third session, and boy is she getting big! She had her cousins join in on a few as well, and brought their MN Wild Jerseys for fun. They were so great to work with! I can't wait to see her again in the spring!

A big congrats to this young woman who just graduated from the University of Minnesota! We went to the Walter Library on campus to document this special occasion for her. Good luck in all you do, M!

Looks like I've fallen behind again keeping up to date around here! I've been busy trying to get everyone's orders to them in time for Christmas, battling a nasty case of the flu, and taking some time to spend with family. I may just have to make a new year's resolution to post a blog AT LEAST once a week.

Here are a few from a recent session. This little guy is six months old and cute as a button!

Goodbye to the old, HELLO to the new!
Starting January 1st, I'll be moving into a new studio space, and I'm super duper excited! Up until now, I've been sharing a space in Minneapolis with a couple of other photographers who also worked on location and used the studio on a very part time basis. Well, I just signed a lease on a space in Newport, MN (just east of St Paul), and it's all mine! It's not a large studio, since I still intend on doing the majority of my work on location. But, it will be a great place to work when the weather is less than ideal, for consultations, and intimate portraits. I can't wait to get in there and decorate! I may just be doing a little casting call come January should I feel the need to test out the studio setup with models.
Anyway, here are a few from my last session at the old studio. Bye bye old studio!

Spring, 2009 Workshops Announced!
Update: March is sold out. Register for April while you still can!
I've recently had several requests for more workshops, and with the holidays coming up, I thought this would be a good time to announce my spring workshops and give everyone a chance to put registration on their Christmas lists! If you are hoping for a loved one to sign you up, let them know I'll have cards available that they can give you.
ANYWAY, the dates for the next workshops are:
March 14th and April 25th, 2009
Each class is limited to 10 people.
My last two workshops sold out VERY quickly, so make sure to sign up right away if you don't want to miss out.
For details, and to sign up, go to the following links:
Can't wait!

Oh my goodness, this little girl is just SO cute! I photographed her as a newborn and now again at 18 months. She has become an absolutely beautiful child with an adorable personality. I bet it's difficult for her parents not to be constantly giving her hugs and kisses!

My mom just sent me an email telling me to update my blog! I guess that means I've been neglecting this little place here! I've had my hands full - beyond my regular busy schedule, I'm now putting together Christmas cards galore for everyone out there (yet haven't managed to figure out what it is I'm doing for mine, go figure!), trying to plan a wedding, Christmas shopping, HOUSE shopping (yay!), and trying to keep a personal life somewhere amongst the madness!

Oh well, no more excuses! Here are a few from one of my most recent sessions - who can resist a sweet little newborn? I'll be back with more soon!

This is for you, mom! (and this cute little guy's parents, of course)

I got to photograph this little cutie recently to document his first birthday! It's been a joy photographing him throughout the year. Happy Birthday, and I hope to see you again soon!

Congratulations to Abby and Mitch! They're engaged to be married next summer at the outdoor skygarden on the rooftop of the Crowne Plaza Northstar Hotel. I'm happy to say they've chosen me to photograph their special day! Here are just a few from their engagement session. Aren't they a cute couple?

It looks like I'm overdue for posting! I've been so busy lately with it being busy season (everyone wants fall colors!) and making wedding plans, I forgot to blog! Sorry, but I'll make it up to you! Here are some images of a beautiful young lady who's senior portraits I had the honor of photographing last week. Doesn't she resemble princess Jasmine from Alladin? That's who I thought of right away when I saw her. See for yourself.
