Pin with me on Pinterest! | Minneapolis / St. Paul Photography

After hearing about Pinterest for months, (and thinking it would be a huge time waster for me) I finally caved and signed up. I can honestly say, it hasn't been the distraction that I thought it might be. I've been amazed by all the creative and beautiful ideas that are out there on the web!  
As their website says, "Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes."  It's a great  place to get inspiration, share ideas, and gather your favorite finds.  
I've started a few boards including a "Photo Shoot Fashion" board to help with planning your next photography session. I would love if you would follow me on Pinterest. Happy pinning!

What an beautiful expectant mom and adorable big brother-to-be I photographed a few weeks ago.  And I just realized how behind I am on blogging when I received a call this week that the baby has already arrived! Enjoy these favorites from the maternity session and stay tuned for cute baby photos as I will be photographing the new little one this weekend!

Great Gatsby Gala {Minneapolis Event Photography}

Walking into the Great Gatsby Gala at the Minneapolis Women's Club was like walking back in time to the roaring '20's. A friend and I photographed this Gatsby-themed event which was a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Guests went all out with their outfits and it made for such a fun party atmosphere. Kirk DeWindt from The Bachelorette was the emcee for the night, and Dr. Daniel Harki gave a presentation about his cancer research. Miss Minnesota was also in attendance. Along with the presentation and dance, there was a silent auction, poker room and photo booth. What a fun event!

Preserving Your Child's Artwork Collection

Children's Artwork Digital Packages

When my daughter started kindergarten this year, I quickly learned that my home would soon be overtaken by lots and lots of paper. Worksheets, paintings, drawings, not to mention all the handouts from school.  My daughter has also inherited my passion for drawing and crafts, (which I love!) but with this comes even more paper. We are now half way through the school year and the basket of art projects looks like this:

Mind you, I have thrown out many projects (shhh) - and this box is just the ones that are clearly precious works of art. :)  I  mean who could throw out this masterpiece?

I was talking with another mom during a photoshoot recently who had a similar collection of kids artwork piling up. We talked about how great it would be to digitize these projects and have them preserved instead of just piling up and collecting dust in a closet somewhere.  So I took this great idea and now present to you: 

Children's ArtWork Digital Packages!

How it works:
 • Fill a box with your child's artwork
 • I digitize the entire collection by hand. (Flat pieces are scanned;  Thicker or three-dimensional items are photographed.)
 • Original items are returned to you, along with the entire collection of digital files on CD or flash drive.
 • Once digitized, your child's artwork can also be shared with family, posted online, or made into a beautiful coffee table book.
 • Your children's favorite masterpieces are preserved forever!

 Packages start at $150.   Contact me for a full price list.
