Raths Family

Had a great session with the Raths Family in Wanamingo on Sunday afternoon. They have a wonderful old barn which provided us some great shooting. And Jason just finished the restoration of this sweet Mustang! When he had gotten it a few years ago, it came in a 38 foot pieces!! Much hard work has led to a classic! A great prop for some great family photos!!

Niebur Family

Had a great session with the Niebur family in Cannon Falls on Sunday afternoon. The Neiburs are 10 brothers and sisters from all over who got together for a great reunion. On such a beautiful day, the sun was a little harsh, but there were plenty of adequetely shaded areas in and around the yard.

It was fun to be a part of so many great smiles and laughs with the Neiburs.

Stevens Family

Had a great session with our old Albert Lea friends, the Stevens family. Glen is the pastor at our old church, Crossroads Church. It was great to catch up a bit and I can't believe how big all the kids are getting.

Engagement Session - Cullen & Breanna

We had a great little engagement session with Cullen and Breanna. They came out to the farm a little later than we usually shoot and it was fun for me to find some new ways that the light falls a little later in the evening. I love how the sunlight passes through the green of the spring leaves. It creates such a warm glow to things.

We're also in the prime of the flowering tree season. We're lucky enough to have ten flowering apple trees on the farm and they provide some great backdrops for photos.

It is a big week for Cullen and Breanna. Cullen is off to NCAA Nationals in the 1500meters. Then college graduation on Sunday. Best of luck with all that. I am really excited to shoot their wedding in August!!

Randomness 1.0

I know that bloggers all over the universe are writing about things much more astute and academic and meaningful and useful, but I couldn't pass this one up.

For three days, I have driven to work on County 14 in rural Goodhue County. And for three straight days I have seen this printer sitting on the shoulder of the road. A few thoughts about this:

  • It is nowhere near a home.
  • It didn't appear to crash out of someone's truck bed at high speeds
  • All the accessories are neatly placed next to it.

So my mind this some sort of roadside memorial for a printer that was involved in a fatal crash at this location? Was someone working here in a wireless remote office setting and just went to town for coffee or more toner? Was it just placed here so someone like me would pull over, put it in reverse, take out the camera and subsequently blog about it?

Kelsey Senior Session/Loftus Family

Jess and Joey and Peyton came out for a nice little session around the farm. Got some great shots of this little cutie pie again. Joey also brought his new Harley and the whole family donned their "gear" for a couple shots. It was a great time. Cameron loved having someone closer to his own size to wrestle with a bit too. Emmy just laughs at him when he wants to play!!

Kelsey came down from Burnsville this morning for a quick little "second half" session too. We did some shots late in the fall to meet her school's yearbook deadline with the thought of doing some more in the spring when things greened up again. So we finally got to it! Kelsey is one of those lucky people who just always has a great smile on for photos. She looked great and the same in every shot!!

FFA State Convention

I have had several people asking "Where are the photos from the State Convention??". Well I posted them on my old website here. I had to get the high resolution versions available for the State Convention newsletter publisher, so I just put them all there. I only upload smaller low res versions to my proof area just to save time/space since people are only viewing from there.

So for all of you FFAers looking around...


47 pages worth!! Enjoy.

ESession - Lindsay & Chad

I got a few photos on earlier, but wanted to add a couple more since the rest of them are in their wedding gallery area now. We had a great time at Como Park, though our plan was to go in the Conservatory. However they wanted $25 for a half hour of shooting and they couldn't use the bathroom!??! Funny.

We went down the road by the lake and got some great shooting in. I am really excited to do their wedding coming up! It's going to be a great day!
