Exquisite Dishes | Porter & Frye | Ivy Tower

Last year, my wonderful boyfriend (and business associate) treated me to a spa afternoon at the Ivy Spa and dinner at Porter & Frye - for my mom and me. It was my favorite birthday gift thus far (until this year: skydiving)! But back to it, it was great to go back and photograph some amazing dishes.

Located in the Ivy Tower downtown Minneapolis, Porter & Frye is a cut above the rest! Photographing food was new to me and so fun. Not only does it look amazing, but it tastes even better (pumpkin! I can't wait to shoot a wedding there - the restaurant, hotel, everything is just stunning!

November 20 | Kim & Bruce | Married

I met Kim and Bruce when I showed up to photograph their wedding reception over the past weekend (they were married previously at their Minnetonka home). I saw right away how happy, loving, and warm this couple is. Their celebration at the Mill City Museum was so lovely and relaxed. And the red gown, heels, and feather hairpiece Kim donned - smokin'! :) Thank you, Kim & Bruce! It was a pleasure.

And last but not least, the mantra of the evening: When Pigs Fly...

Headshots | Dawnn & Diane | Guthrie

Dawnn & Diane, this absolutely beautiful mother-daughter Realtor team, are so wonderful. Having headshots taken was a clever way to utilize the Fall Portrait Event we ran through this year - well done! And thank you so much - it's always a pleasure working with you and your family!

Nov 2010 | Family Portraits | Minnetonka MN

What beautiful ladies! Lisa owns the Depot Coffeehouse in Hopkins, MN, where I've been lucky enough to display my fine art pieces and greeting cards. It's been so great to be a part of the Depot, so naturally I was pumped to be invited to photograph Lisa with her beautiful daughters and mother! A day after the "Minnesota madness" snowfall last weekend, we had a brand new winter wonderland to work with. Thanks so much gals - you're fantastic!
