On a steamy July evening, Sara, Terry & I met up to do their engagement photos at the Wood Lake Nature Center in Richfield. We picked this location because Terry proposed there (hence the somewhat cheesy proposal recreation photo in the exact spot!). I had never been there and it was a gorgeous setting for their photos! At the end of the session we raced the sun down to the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis for a few last photos.

I’m excited I get to spend my birthday photographing their wedding at the Minnesota Valley Country Club this fall!

There’s nothing more gorgeous than the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in the Spring! Masha loves tulips so we were fortunate that the timing of our session worked out perfectly! We pretty much got the most perfect evening you could ask for to do these photos last spring. Their little boy Barron has arrived now and I’m working on editing his newborn photos so I thought I would get the maternity photos up on my blog for all to see! I love the bright, spring-y colors!!  Congrats to Masha & Justin!

I am so happy to share these business branding photos I created for Elishia Robson, owner of Lakeside Floral in Willernie (near Mahtomedi/White Bear Lake). Photographing other business owners is one of my absolute favorite things to do! These days, having a strong online brand is more important than ever. Cell phones can go a long way with social media posts, but having professional images to share on your website and other online platforms is critical. Elishia was building a new website and wanted some professional photos of the shop and new headshots to use on wedding websites.

I can’t recommend Elishia enough. She purchased Lakeside Floral in 2014 and has transformed it to fit her style and brand. Not only does her shop have great gifts and flowers for everyday occasions, she also does amazing work for weddings, events, and funerals. Talented, professional, and great to work with! I only recommend the best!

The next time you are in need of floral or a special gift, be sure to stop in and support a small, independent business owner. Enjoy a glimpse into her shop! Her dog Bianca is also a shop fixture and makes an appearance in some of the photos, too!
