Josiah was visiting Minneapolis briefly while his parents sold their old home. On the last day of his trip we decided to go adventuring. The only time that really worked was sunrise. I picked him up at 5:30 a.m. and we found a great spot to walk around and talk photography and life. This was a sweet time for me. Josiah is in High School and is getting very passionate about photography. I remember being his age and taking my first HS film photography class. For me, the itch to become more serious with photography didn’t start until I was older. Much older. But, Josiah on the other hand, has dove in head first. I’m really excited to see where this all goes for him. Its funny when you cross paths with people you know will quickly become amazing at what they do. You can view some of Josiah’s work here. Here’s some of what I saw and the portraits I made with Josiah. All images were captured on film and specifics are listed at the end of this post. Thanks for the support everyone! If you’d like to book an adventure portrait session with me please contact me and lets set up a time and place. Its simple. We walk around, chat and hang out, maybe grab coffee…and make some great portraits together. 33a3b455a5aa5aaa5aaaa5aaaaa66a6aa7891010a11121316a171818a18aa18b2121a21b22232424a2526

  • autumn - I was about 16 when I fell in love with photography too. I love how you captured Josiah’s growing curiosity. Like him, I also had a phenomenal mentor such as yourself – it’s a priceless relationship.ReplyCancel

THANK YOU to all the families that have wanted me to come hang out! I never thought I’d be this busy with family sessions…but keep em coming, they are a blast. If you connect with these images and want some of your own or know someone who does please contact me or share my info. This job is a dream…but it will end pretty quickly without amazing clients. I’d love to give you a collection of photographs documenting your life. Its really simple. I show up.  You do life with those you love. I take some photos. Its really that laid back. You’ll love it.

 

  • Autumn - Beautiful shots – love the Mogensens. Such a sweet family! Well captured. I especially love the playground shoot. It’s perhaps the most underused/underrated photo shoot location but what better place to capture the art of playing?ReplyCancel
