Last Fall I had a sweet opportunity to observe and photograph a local business and its team members. This was the first time I’ve ventured into the corporate world with photography and I had a blast. Creed Interactive wanted a fresh look for their website and promotional materials. This was a pretty laid back, documentary style shoot in addition to new head shots. I decided to bring my polaroid and give all the team members individual photos of themselves on the spot. I  loved the actual space, which was thoughtfully designed and seemed like a great and inspiring work environment, complete with great views of the city, a company dog, wood walls and raccoon pillow. I would totally take on this sort of shoot again.

2014 was my biggest year, yet. I was the busiest I’ve ever been with photography…had more portrait and family sessions and weddings in a single season ever. It still wasn’t enough, though. I want to work harder. I want to drink more coffee and stay up later. In 2014, I started shooting more film than digital and started developing all my black and white film at home. This was the first year I worked outside of Minnesota. I traveled to Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Texas and South Dakota. All for photography. I’m so stoked about this. Help me make 2015 even better! Thank you thank you thank you…for the support, encouragement and inspiration. Love you guys. I couldn’t do this without you. Here are some rad photos from this year.

 Another first for 2014…having a professional photographer grab some photos of our crazy, growing family. Thanks so much Jeff!

It was a seasonably warm late September day, but absolutely gorgeous. Tim and Kathy looked gorgeous and planned a perfect day for themselves and their guests. Camrose Hill is always a beautiful venue, but looked just breathtaking this day especially as the sun began to slowly fall. I love when couples are able to fully engage with guests and themselves on a wedding day and thats exactly what happened at Tim + Kathy’s wedding. As a documentary photographer I almost need this to happen to make great photographs (and knowing there’s a dog roaming around strapped with a GoPro to his back!) This gives me the freedom to roam around and observe interactions…all the joys, anxieties and celebrations that happen during a wedding day. This was the last wedding of my 2014 season and was such great one to cap off a great year. Thanks Tim + Kathy! Thanks so much to everyone who has supported me and continued to follow this blog as well. I can’t do it without you! Enjoy the holiday season and be on the lookout for my year in review post coming soon!!!
