Cute Kittens! {Pet Photography Minneapolis, MN}

Last week my daughter and I fostered a litter of kittens from the Humane Society. They were too small to be on the adoption floor, so we took care of them for about a week. As you can see, they are completely adorable! I couldn't resist doing a little photo shoot with them before we brought them back. It was no easy task to get them all to sit in this basket. What finally got their attention was me shaking a bell in the air while also making meowing sounds - they were either entertained or confused, I can't really tell by their expressions!  If you're looking for a pet, check out the Humane Society's adoptable animals here.

Baby Announcements {Featured Product | Minneapolis Newborn Photography}

I've had such cute newborns to photograph this spring and their baby announcements and mini-albums have turned out so beautifully, I just had to share some of them!  The mini-albums are included with all newborn sessions and are great way to carry your photos with you in your purse, or give as a gift to family members. The announcements are double-sided and fully customizable - a wonderful way to announce your precious little one in style!

Planning Ahead {Photo Shoot Tips}

When planning for your next photo session, here's a wardrobe tip to keep in mind. When deciding on what to wear, first think about where you are going to display your finished photos.  Will you be having a large print made for above your sofa? Or will these prints be made into a collage for your entryway? Perhaps a few will go in your child's bedroom?  If you're going to display them in your home, think about your decor and choose clothing that matches or coordinates. I'm not saying you have to find a dress that is a perfect match to your sofa, but having a complementary color scheme will add to the beauty of your wall art.

Minnesota Heart Gallery {Minneapolis Youth Photography}

I had my first session as a volunteer photographer for the Minnesota Heart Gallery today. It was a great experience and I am looking forward to doing more! For privacy reasons, I can't share any photos with you here, but if you're interested,  check out their website

As their website says, "Heart Gallery is a photographic exhibit featuring portraits of youth that share one need: to become part of a permanent and committed family. There are hundreds of youth in Minnesota who will leave foster care with nowhere to call home. Minnesota Heart Gallery provides a safe and dignified way to introduce these youth and their stories to prospective families and to remind us all of the promise and hope of finding a place to call home."

It was a beautiful day to be outside, and I wish all the best to the delightful young man I photographed today!
