New Blog Address & Fundraising Update

Thanks to everyone who took the time to comment on the posts for the past month. Each comment earned another dollar towards the efforts of Doctors without Borders for their work in Haiti.

In other news, I have been working on a new blog site – one that will show off photos a little larger and cleaner, so I hope you will update your RSS and links and join me at

Lots of new content is already waiting for you there!


Wedding Questions your Vendors can Answer

February 6 will mark Minneapolis’s first ever Independent Wedding Fair. I am so excited to be involved in this event – it is bringing together 21 local vendors, who are all hand selected for their creativity, love of weddings, and value. The fair will be low key with lots of actual information and none of the trinkets and sales of more traditional fairs.

But that is where you come in! I am looking for ideas about what you want to know about planning your wedding or what you wish you had known before you got married. Between the panel discussions and Q&A we are already planning to cover a lot of questions like:

  • How to make my photography budget go further?
  • How to get great food?
  • What do I need to think about when I plan my wedding timeline?
  • How do I incorporate my complicated family into the wedding without driving myself crazy?
  • What do ushers do?

What questions do you want answered?

Dollars for Comments – Doctors without Borders

Post Katrina New Orleans

From now through Valentines day, I will be running a  “dollars for comments” drive.

For each comment on my website between now and February 14, 2010, I will donate $1 to Doctors without Borders to support their Haiti relief efforts.


Portraits with a Heart – fundraising with photography

When is the right time to take a family portrait? In the  next few weeks a portrait session will be free with a donation in any amount to the Leukemia & Lymphoma society. Fun sessions, family sessions, kids, couples, pets, whatever – free fun with a donation to help fight blood cancers.

I still have a few sessions available in Madison, WI on Saturday, October 31 or Sunday, November1.

Sessions available in Minneapolis on Saturday November 7 and Sunday November 8.


Vote for my photo in the Star Tribune wedding photo contest

The Star Tribune is holding a wedding photo contest, and one of my photos made it into the top 25. If it wins, it will be published in the paper and the bride and groom will recieve a cash prize. You can help it win by voting (up to once per hour). Thanks!


Minneapolis Portrait Photographer – Portraits with a Heart

This fall, I am happy to announce “Portraits with a Heart” – my fall portrait special. In two weekends (October 31 in Madison, WI and Nov 7 in Minneapolis, MN) I will donate  a complimentary photo session to any portrait client that makes a donation in any amount to the Leukemia & Lymphoma society. (Yep, any amount, and it is tax deductible).

I hope to make this an annual event. I am so excited to donate my time to reconnect with my clients while we all help support the work of this amazing organization. Email me for session information – I am only offering this for two weekends, so space is limited.


Family Portrait Special

My lilacs are starting to bloom, and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate spring that with a special on family portrait sessions. Now through June 30, special pricing available for family portraits (this includes kids or maternity, too!).  Contact me to schedule a session.
