Nikolai | Minneapolis Children's Photographer

My 3 kiddos and I went to the new studio to clean tonight. I have my first session there tomorrow, Saturday, with an awesome family. Actually, they were my first REAL PAYING client with their newborn daughter, Joey, 3 years ago. Now, there are my FIRST client I will be taking photos of in the new Victoria studio space. Ironic? I think so :)

Anyways, Nikolai let me snap a few of him for practice tonight. These are nothing fancy, and it was 6:45pm but for you photogs here were my settings iso 400, 1/160, f/1.4. Way better then I thought the lighting would be for so late in the day.

This series just cracks me up... we all know how stressful photos can be, even if I tell you NOT to make it stressful. And let's face it, two year olds just have their own agenda :)

MINNe-SHOP | Minneapolis Photographer

I had the pleasure of attending the first ever MINNe-SHOP with the rockin' Elisa from Photogen yesterday! It was about tilt shift photography. I met some awesome fellow photographers and learned more than I ever imagined.

Below are some of the photos I took of the awesome models that we had available to us, Matt and Emily. They were so fun and willing to do *anything.*

You can read and see more about the MINNe-SHOP on Elisa's blog. She totally rocked! Thanks Elisa for the awesome day and hospitality!
