Why is my title from 3 months ago you ask? That is because that is the day blu domain (only the biggest and coolest website company for photographers) interviewed me on thier blog. Truly one my most exiting days as a professional photographer. see they choose 50 amazing and compelling (thier words) photographers from around the world to interview in thier count down to Christmas. They interviewed some very big names with the likes of Cheryl Muhr, Audrey Woulard the list goes on and on reading like the list of my idols and favorite photogs..and then they interviewed little old me. I feel very blessed to have been asked. Below is the interview..I cant believe I am not just finally getting around to sharing it!

All I want for Christmas is….well, it has been one B-U-S-Y season, and I feel very blessed that my business has grown so quickly but my family time has suffered. I am looking forward to some quality time alone with my family for Christmas.2 My favorite holiday cocktail….Christmas Jones. If you haven’t had one, get one. If you don’t know what it is, google it.3. My favorite holiday party hoer devours….mmm, this is a tough one since I love food. especially hoer devours.. I am going to go with deep fried calamari tossed in spicy peppers.4. The average price I spend per gift…. I can neither confirm nor deny any dollar amount that I spend on gifts. I don’t like to leave a papertrail when it comes to shopping… My husband may be reading this ;) 5. My favorite gift to give during the holidays …. Starbucks gift cards (who doesn’t love those..hint hint..) and portraits, what else! (yes grandma and grandpa, your getting pictures of the kids AGAIN!)6. Something overrated about the holidays …. egg nog, definitely7. Something I must have before Christmas …. The iPhone – I KNOW! I can’t believe I don’t have one yet either8. One thing I always do during the holidays …Make the 3 and a half hour flight from Minnesota to sunny Palm Springs for a little R & R and golf with my family.9. Where I love to shop for the holidays …..mmm, the list might be shorter if you asked where I DONT like to shop for the holidays…Anthropology, Banana Republic, Room & Board, Toys R Us,Target, Best Buy, the Apple Store, Home Depot…should I continue??10. A holiday tradition I have …. My husband, my 4 yr old son and 2 yearold daughter head out to the Christmas tree farm. This is one of the best traditions! We bundle up, drink apple cider, do pictures with Santa, pet the live reindeer, go for a sleigh ride and then grab our saw, walk around forever contemplating the best Charlie brown Christmas tree cut it down anddrag it to the car. We drive home with it tied to the top of the car anxious to get home and decorate.11. One thing you won’t find me doing during the holidays…singing out loud. Oh, I sing plenty to myself, but trust me, this is one thing you aren’t missing.12. One of my New Year’s resolutions…. to stop reading blogs all day instead of editing!13.

my (beautiful) family…

December is the busiest month for a children and family portrait photographer. It’s like tax season for an accountant. No sleep, long hours at the studio and very little family time. However, this year I vowed to make it a very special month for my family and we flew to California for our own family pictures. I am in LOVE. Every image captured my family and my heart just melts when I look at them. I only hope that everytime I present a family with pictures of thier baby, children or family..that they feel the same way. Here is one of my favorite. Thanks Carey for the amazing portraits!

(Baby) it’s cold outside..

But look at how cute these 2 are! This is definitely Minnesota when we are doing engagement pictures outside and it is 2 DEGREES, yes you read that right! Beautiful Gretchen and Luke (the ambercrombie model look alike) where amazing. Even though they had to hold their breath so we wouldn’t see frozen air in every shot, we didn’t get a single bad picture of them..Here is to a beautiful life together! Congratulations!

My one and only New Years resolution

this year is to blog blog blog. Last year was such a whirlwind, and an amazing year, however, I unfortanutly was not able to blog all of the clients sessions. This years resolution is to blog one image from each session and I am also going to be running contests and informational stay tuned!

Every Day With Rachel Ray Magazine Commercial Work

The November Everyday with Rachel Ray Magazine is out and my pictures are in it! I was asked to do a few pictures of Pacifier Childrens Store for an article on Minneapolis. Here are some snapshots of my published pictures and the magazine. I always love when I get to do commercial photography work in the great state of Minnesota. (and for a great magazine like Rachel Ray!)
