Nicole, Mitch and I spent a gorgeous Spring evening together wandering around Excelsior, MN. Excelsior is one of my favorite towns, (if you haven’t visited, you need to!) and between the delicious ice cream, gorgeous lake, green space, and lively downtown, it’s basically the perfect place to spend a warm evening.

Nicole and I met our freshman year of college, where we lived next door to one another and quickly bonded over bizarre facial expressions and general weirdness. She’s also probably one of my most photographed friends! (You can see her work it here, herehere, and here, for starters.) She’s one of my favorite people to photograph, always allowing me to put her in uncomfortable poses and  running, jumping, and flailing her way through various creative photoshoots throughout our friendship! SO, it was such a treat to photograph her just being herself, with her best friend and partner in Moana-soundtrack-belting, Mitch (who also went to college with us!)

Mitch and Nicole are such an easygoing couple, and made sure we got more than one goofy photo of them doing what they do best – making faces. Ah, but those are saved for our email correspondences, not the public eye 😉 Here are some of my favorite photos from our time together!

Annandale High School senior Maddie and I spent a chilly, late Fall day near the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis, MN capturing her senior photos. Obviously, Maddie is insanely gorgeous and I stopped her halfway through our session to tell her to model…like…seriously. She laughed it off but I stand by my suggestion! Here are some of my favorites from her session. All the best to you, Maddie! stonearchsenior

Annandale High School senior Julia, her mom, and I spent a gorgeous evening together on the campus of St. John’s University in Collegeville, MN for her senior photos! Campus was quiet, allowing us to explore a little bit and find some great locations for photos.

Julia is a cousin of Amanda (a great friend from college, and one of my most photographed friends! See a session here and some all the way back from 2012 here and here.) Amanda’s sister (Julia’s cousin) Jackie’s senior session is here! Long story short, yes killer blue eyes do run in the family and so does being ridiculously photogenic.

Julia, I love these photos of you! Here are my favorites.
