{Persistence | Personal}

"When you walk through a day in trusting dependence on Me, My aching heart is soothed. Gently bring your attention back to Me whenever it wanders away. I look for persistence - rather than perfection - in your walk with Me. " {Jesus Calling, Sarah Young}

Robert totally rocked this shoot! He was super comfortable in front of the camera. He lives on a dairy farm, and is also going into heavy equipment after he graduates, so we lots of great picture opportunities. I enjoyed meeting both you and your family!

{Jose and Katie - Preview | Staples MN Wedding Photography}

Jose and Katie got married this weekend! I was super excited to be part of their day, as they are such an adorable couple! Definitely enjoyed myself through it all. I haven't gotten to really spend a lot of time with their images yet.. but wanted to share just a couple. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Alba! Hope you are having a great time in Cancun! :)

{And of course I had to add this one... we all know how much I love leaving the church shots!!}

{She's coming to visit | Personal}

All I can think about right now is this lovely lady.... 


Katherine and I meet two years ago at photojournalism class in Atlanta.. we were roomies :) The only picture we have of the two of us that week {ok, we look tired... but we had just finished 70 hours of class in five days. Yes.} And she also takes extremely lovely photos: {}

I got to visit her last year in California... and we did lots of amazing stuff, including shooting a wedding, hanging in San Diego and Coranado, camping and rock climbing in Yosemite and lots of other adventures. And now she's coming to MN! :D

Tomorrow. Yes, tomorrow.

Which means I'm scrambling to catch up on last minute things which included lots of photo work, things for the newspaper, CPR recert {ugh}, filling out a camp application {I'm guarding for a week this summer! Yay!}, and wayy too many other things.

So... so long for the next week, during which we will be shooting another wedding, canoeing on Pillager Lake, exploring the country and camping up the North Shore {among other things}. :)

Until then!

{Hannah - Class of 2013 | St. Cloud MN High School Senior Photography}

Here they are... the rest of Hannah's rad senior session!  There are a ton of them, because I couldn't pick just a few favorites! Seriously, I'm so in love with these images. :) Hannah was the first girl senior that I've shot in wayyy too long. While I love all you guys, most of you can't pull off these stunning looks ;) haha  You were amazing Hannah! Enjoy...
