One of the common questions I get from clients when planning a shoot is, “Can we include our pet, too?”

As the owner of two mischievous cats and a curious, playful dog I always respond with an enthusiastic affirmative. I am an animal lover and pets make photo sessions extra fun.

Here are a few pet shots from weddings, engagements, and portrait sessions in 2014.

Ah, a summery candid photo post now that the snow is here in Minnesota. Photographers, especially in Minnesota, mourn the loss of shutter-friendly weather once winter arrives. However, I have a solution that’s every bit as fun as a day in the park: At Home sessions.

So what are they?

I come to you. You hang out, bake cookies, play with your kiddos, bundle up and have a snowball fight in the back yard…whatever.

I make portraits and you just hang out. It’s pretty great.

VSCO film fans received a pretty sweet pre-Halloween treat this year: VSCO 06: The Alternative Process Collection film pack.

If you’re curious about what’s inside, I’ve put together a side by side comparison of a few of the many gorgeous options this pack has to offer. (Check out my side by side VSCO 05: The Archetype Collection  and VSCO 00: Free Starter Pack for more VSCO comparisons. Also, for other cool film company goodies, check out this review: RNI)

The original SOOC image is on the left and VSCO on the right. I haven’t tweaked anything but instead slapped things on to show you exactly how each of my film picks looks. But yeah, there are a gazillion beautiful ways to spin this pack to work for you.

So, like all of the VSCO magic I’ve tried, I’m definitely looking forward to working these new tricks into my workflow.

Scotland Highlands Achnagairn House Wedding001

When you’re telling a story using photographs, and it’s place like Scotland, there are a lot of photos involved. This is the story of a classic and gorgeous Scottish wedding at Achnagairn House in the heart of the Scottish highlands.

Fiona and Andrew spent four incredible days celebrating their marriage with a host of family & friends from around Scotland and the world. There was whisky and ceilidh dancing, kilts and croquet. It was an incredible celebration to photograph and be a part of for the weekend. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
