Vivian - Perfect in Polka Dots

"Moving to a new city can be difficult, especially when you have no friends or family there. That becomes evident when you need to look for services like mechanics, hairdressers, and photographers. Since you don't know anyone, you can't ask for referrals. We started looking for someone to photograph Vivian a few months ago. After searching for what seems like ages for photographers here in the Twin Cities, we came across Megan's page and knew our search was over. We loved her light, airy look and how she made the subjects look at ease in the photos. Megan suggested that we bring a few things that were meaningful to the photo shoot, and I really liked that idea! Vivian wore a beautiful red dress that her Great Grandmother made for her this Spring. We also brought a light saber (shhhh, don't tell Daddy we took his light saber!!) and got some fun shots to use for our Father's Day gift. I really like how Megan combined more traditional shots and poses with more fun and candid ones that let Vivian show her personality. I will cherish these photos for the rest of my life, and can't wait to work with Megan again!!"

Anyone that has had the pleasure to meet Viv will tell you she has an amazing little personality. She was instantly my best friend and we had so much fun. Her mommy, Carolyn, is a fantastic photographer herself so we had to grab a few headshots for her while they were at the studio.

Kallie - Beautiful Ballerina

A wise woman once told me to survive in the photography world you need to do personal projects. Lots of personal projects. Projects that will remind me why I love what I do and push my creativity further and further. 

One of the items on my personal bucket list was to photograph a ballerina. This is where Kallie came into the picture. How stunning is she? Beautiful inside & out. Did I mention she's insanely talented to boot? We started off her session doing some senior-esque shots, and boy oh boy does the camera love this girl. And when we switched over to Pointe shoes and tutus I may have fallen in love. I can't wait to print some of these stunning images for client samples. 

Thank you again for coming to play, Kallie! I had such a blast!

Kelsie & Marcus - Married!

"We have been so happy to have all of your pictures capture our Wedding Day so perfectly.  So many of our memories were captured in your photos, which we so appreciate since it was such a fun-filled day!  My favorite part of our wedding was actually walking down the aisle.  It was incredible to have so many friends and family members there to support Marcus and me.  Marcus' favorite part of the day was probably our wedding dance.  Our DJ seemed worried ahead of time that nobody would want to dance, but that was definitely not the case!  I think Marcus actually danced more than anyone else on the floor!  I think we both also loved our time at Centenniel Lakes before the wedding.  It was really our only time to just be (sort of) alone together for the day, and the pictures that were taken there turned out beautiful!  We had a lot of fun just walking around the lake and laughing together.  We have had so much fun looking through our photos and video and reliving our Wedding Day!  Thank you for helping make the day perfect!"

Congrats Kelsie and Marcus!
