Its that time of year again! Looking back, I can’t believe I’ve had the honor of getting to know such an amazing group – incredible athletes, artists, musicians, honor students, and unique individuals! You’ll go on to amazing things and I’m so glad to have been a part of your lives! Take care – keep in touch – dream big and push yourself to go for those dreams! Have a blast and be sure to eat lots of ice cream – because its delicious ;) Remember that nothing is set in stone – you can always change your mind. Do amazing things and when life gets tricky – always look for the silver lining.

10 Fun Winter Engagement Portraits!

Written by Jen on . Posted in Engagement Love, Will You? I DO!

Happy New Year! As if it wasn’t cold enough, apparently Mother Nature has Minnesota confused with Antarctica. Current relative temp with windchill: -34. Ouch.

But its not always so ridiculous cold – and when its not, it makes for some pretty epic portraits :) In the spirit of the new year, and hopefully new blogging resolutions, I wanted to share some of my fun from Charles and Kendall’s wintery engagement session from last year.

We started out formal and sassy – they said I DO! at a Glacial Ridge Winery and it was so fun to include that element. I love this image – they both look so fierce! Can you say power couple!?! Gorgeous!

Couple by Wine Barrels

Then on to some snuggly sweaters – ps, her socks make me swoon!

Then we headed out to the lake :) ( **Always make sure bodies of water are totally frozen before you go playing on them – be safe!** )

Couple kissing on frozen lake

Can you say cute?!! I love Charles’ expression!

We ended with a little cold weather gear fun! Winter accessories are so much fun! Hats, scarves, mittens, blankets, coats, socks, sweaters – all so cozy! And fun – I just love these playful images!

Couple making funny faces in hats

And, of course, more snuggling :)

I’m longing to play outside – here’s hoping this extreme cold snap doesn’t last long. Don’t let winter get you down – it may be chilly but its still an amazing time to plan an engagement session with your bride/groom-to-be. Already said I DO! – NO PROBLEM! Grab your honey bunny, your family, your pooch – heck just you! – and plan some wintery portrait fun! I’d love to brainstorm with you :) Get bundled, get snuggly, and have a blast! (Though, if you’re anywhere in Minnesota, be sure you wait until at least after Wednesday – brrrrr!)

Stay Warm!

Happy Movember! Started my day with some SHAVE THE DATE! fun! Head on over to 3rd Street Hair Company and get hooked up with Lyle for your straight razor shaves today and tomorrow! A portion of the proceeds from each shave will be donated to the Movember event to help raise money and awareness for men’s health. Start Movember off right with a fantastic shave – then let that Mo Grow!



Dustin said this was bliss – I was more than a little jealous!  ( I did end up getting a massage later from Christine at A New Day Therapeutic Massage to make up for it though – happy Jen!!!  Thanks Christine – seriously people, call Lyle and get your shave on (or one for your man) then call Christine and get a massage.  You’ll be one happy camper – and can thank me later :) )




Dr. Dustin from Allied Chiropractic starting Movember right!  First shave of the day!


Bryon from H&S Heating and A/C pulled up right was I was packing up – had to grab a few shots of him too!  Looking good guys!


Happy mustache growing! JTP has Movember Gala tickets! Come show off that awesome mustache at the end of the month with some tasty eats, libations, and lots of fun! Looking for more info – check here:

I can’t wait to see all the mustaches!!  Happy Movember!

The sun is FINALLY shining! Doesn’t look like it going to last, but I’ll take it while its here! It was so beautiful out today – and I had an awesome consultation with a lovely Senior this afternoon. I just can’t wait to jump in with the Class of 2014!

So, with all these lovely thoughts of Spring and Senior portrait goodness, it hit me that we need some more recap fun! Check out these lovely ladies from Cathedral High School!

What an amazing bunch of women! I can’t wait to meet their 2014 counterparts!

Thanks for taking a peek – hug a Senior near you! :) Now, head out and soak up some more sun – before it decides to hide again for the next few days!
