Pet photography Minneapolis Fenway dogs001

We all love our pets and claim they are part of the family. Well, why not bring them along to your fall photography session?

This fun, autumn-colored session with Fenway the dog was the perfect afternoon in Minneapolis. We had a lovely wander around the park and managed some happy snaps of this young pup.

Wabun park family photography001

Fall is around the corner, which means it’s prime family photography time in Minneapolis and Saint Paul.

This is a small collection from a fall family session in Wabun Park near Minnehaha Falls. It was cold, it was rainy, but the colors were oh so neutral and perfect.

Minneapolis newborn at home candid photography0011

One of the questions I am asked a lot is if I can come over to take pictures after the birth of a new baby. Since I don’t have a studio, the answer is always, “yes!” and it’s been a wonderful option for my clients. I want you to feel comfortable, especially during such a transitional time in your life. Being at home, especially in the winter, is also an intimate and special place to document the first moments of your baby’s life.

Hidden Falls Saint Paul engagement photography dogs vscofilm001

When Meaghan and Cole contacted me about shooting their engagement photos they wondered if it was okay to bring their dogs along. I live with a cutie pie little dog and two cats, so I completely welcome and understand the desire to include pets as part of the family. We set the date to meet at Hidden Falls Park in St. Paul and ended up with the most fantastic golden hour I’ve photographed in a long time.

This collection is a bitter sweet one for Meaghan and Cole. On the happy side, I recently shot their elegant St. Paul wedding and everything went perfectly. They had their favorite shots from this collection in a book made for the wedding guests and they both looked back on the session fondly. Unfortunately, a few days after their engagement photos one of their dogs, Moo (the little one), passed away. It was sudden and unexpected. Meaghan and Cole both thanked me for taking great shots of Moo and expressed so much gratitude. They were so glad they had set up the shoot.

This made me reflect on photography and life events. Weddings are special, but hiring a photographer to capture life doesn’t necessarily need to coincide with a grand event. It can be just because you’d like beautiful photos of the things that are important in your life. I decided to book an anniversary session with my husband because we don’t really have any pro photos together and I’m really looking forward to it. If you have considered booking a session but haven’t, maybe you should. Not because something tragic might happen, but because it’s really nice to have photos of those you love.

Outdoor engagement candid Minneapolis Lebanon Hills Regional Park001

Kayla & Peter’s outdoor summer engagement session at Lebanon Hills Park was perfect. Sunshine, nature, and some beautiful landscapes.

There’s something special about getting the opportunity to spend time with a couple before their wedding. You get a chance to chat, laugh, and get comfortable in front of (or behind) the lens. A chemistry happens, and so do great photos. I’m looking forward to shooting this wedding in September ;)
