Rochester, MN Newborn photographer: Savannah

I was just in love with Savannah. She looked just like a little porcelain doll with her strawberry blonde hair and her beautiful skin. So fun!

Rochester, MN Newborn photographer: Edison

I was so excited to meet Edison. I knew I'd be just coming off of my own maternity leave, so getting back to work would be a mix of feelings. I am happy to say, I loved every minute of it. What a great way to get back in the swing of things.

Rochester, Mn Newborn and Maternity Photographer: Pippa

I first met Robyn and Kim when I was chosen to photograph their beautiful Plummer house wedding a couple of years ago. So when I found out Robyn was pregnant, I was so excited to meet their new baby girl Pippa.

Rochester MN Baby Photographer: Sleepy 5 month old

So Maya didn't quite make it for her nap before her session today. So after smiling and giggling for some awesome photos she was done. Just done. I wasn't though ;) I wanted one more shot of her... But when she is done, she is done. So I held her sweet little crying self and quick as a wink, she fell asleep in my arms. Best morning ever! Took a few tries, but I was able to lay her down and capture some really unique sleeping photos. Not something you normally see for a 5 month session!

5 month session

One more peaceful shot:

You asked and here it is!

A beginner photography workshop. Learn the basics to get the most out of your camera.

For who? Anyone who would like to learn to do better taking photo with their camera as a hobby (those considering professional photography are not currently included). DSLR camera's are required. I shoot with a Canon camera but will speak to the basics if you are Nikon.

1:00 Gather at my home, meet the others in the class, getting used to your camera
1:30 Discussion on lighting, composition, shooting in manual mode vs auto
3:00 Hands on shooting
4:00 Wrap up

Entry into an exclusive, private Facebook group where you can ask on-going questions.

Preparation? Before attending, please find your camera manual and read it. If you no longer have one, find it online. Just google your make and model and do a search. You should know how to change your settings on your camera, specifically changing your ISO, Aperature and Shutter Speed. Bring your manual with you as well, I shoot with Canon and may not know all the specifics on your camera.

Take home? You will take a better photo after we are finished. I promise.
You may not learn everything there is to know in 3 hours but you will learn a few new tricks.

I can't wait to see you there!
