Welcome to my new blog! Since this is my first post and its still a new year, I thought I’d share some of my favorite photos from last year.
It was hard to narrow down the entire year into one post, so I picked images that are special to me for different reasons.
January: I spent a weekend in Duluth and I couldn’t put my camera down! I’ve been there a million times, but never when the lake was froze.
Everything was sparkling and the shoreline looked like it was covered in hundreds of glass marbles. I spent the entire day at the lake and my evening at Spirit Mountain.
February: My friend Sara booked us a shoot in her hometown of Pequot Lakes, MN. We road tripped it and spent the day with Becky & Matt in Crosslake.
It was a beautiful winter day and we had blast!
March: This was my first shoot at The Guthrie. Its a great place for engagement photos and Bobby & Carrie were the perfect couple!
April: I’ve always wanted to do a fashion shoot on the State Fair grounds and Betsy made those dumpsters look amazing!
May: Memorial Day was one of the first really warm days of the year. I spent it with friends at a backyard BBQ and it was perfect 🙂
June: At the beginning of the month I took a much needed day trip to Taylor’s Falls. I took a ton of pictures on the rocks, but the drive up there is just as beautiful.
I pulled over when I saw this tree farm and its still my favorite image from that day.
My friend Yvonne has a hilarious little nephew named Ethan.
He came to town for a day so we took him to the Sculpture Garden to run around and be adorable in front of my camera!
July: A friend of mine was married in a small ceremony in his bride’s very small town of Elkhart, IA. It was a beautiful day and I’m so happy I got to be a part of it.
August: I had a week off and I spent some time taking photos for myself at one of my favorite parks.
I also have the tendency to take pictures while driving my car…
I’ve been taking Adrianna’s pictures since she was 3 years old, but this is by far my favorite session we’ve done.
She had her sassy pants on and totally rocked all her cute little outfits!
September: I LOVE the MN State Fair! I look forward to it every summer and its one of my favorite places to take pictures.
The energy, colors, and textures all make for perfect summer photos.
October: I love fall in MN and cant get enough of those last warm days of the year.
I always look forward to shooting the Davis family. We had a beautiful day and spent it a Minnehaha Park!
November: My cousin hooked me up with two amazing hair/makeup artists that were looking to build their portfolios.
We had a total of 7 models, awesome hair/makeup, wardrobe, AND a great location!
December: Home for the holidays…
2009 was a crazy year and I cant wait to post all my 2010 adventures!
