personal post/minneapolis mn photographer specializing in seniors and commercial/modeling portfolios

where have i been?  what have i been up to?  i will be honest and say that this was the longest month of my entire life.  our dad was admitted to the dassel nursing home june 3rd and refusing to take any blood, hence his hemoglobin was dropping rapidly every day.  he died on Sunday and funeral was yesterday.  my sisters and i have made more trips than i can count since admittance, but especially the last few weeks of his life.  our trips started to be a few hours…until this last week we were there most of each day.  i thank my clients for all of their patience with their edits, reschedules, etc.  i thank my friends for the cards, dropped off food, flowers and plants, etc.  smooches!  he will be greatly missed!  my dad…

one more of allie/orono 2015 senior rep/minneapolis mn photographer specializing in seniors and commercial/modeling portfolios

i am trying hard to edit one image of allie a day/in between my other senior/modeling clients!  so far she’s being patient with me!  i wanted to take her hair down and go more bohemian for these images but she loved her hair up at the end of her shoot-wanted to go home and show todd her hair up so we went with it as it’s her shoot and not mine!  lol  i didn’t look like this in my senior images in 1983!

***i will be honest and say it is interesting shooting your own daughter’s senior images.  i cannot believe that she will be a senior in all honesty, time has gone by so fast:)  allie did GREAT though and amber rocked her hair and make up.  we only got in four outfits…so we will be going a couple more times…because we can:)  a very fun time in her life…a very special time too!  blessed.

carolyn/st louis park 2015

we did her mini shoot near nicollet island, i used to shoot there so much more but so many locations are now fenced/boarded up or have been torn down for condos, etc.  this is the hard part of my job…locations can drastically change from one year to the next!  it was her bday yesterday, i hope she had a super day!
