MINNESOTA BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHERS

  September 19, 2012

I’ve written numerous posts in the past about how much I would LOVE to do more birth photography… I have been lucky enough to have captured 3 births since July 2011 and look forward to future opportunities.

When I gave birth to my first son, Maxwell, in April 2010 birth photography was not on my radar. I actually started my photography business (professionally) in January 2011 but had a group of photographer’s work that I followed. I came across Michele of Pinkle Toes Photography in Austin, Texas and completely fell head over heels in love with her work… I had always thought that I wanted to be an exclusive wedding photographer until I came across a birth session that Michele photographed a few months after my son was born. This “session” BLEW ME AWAY and the way I viewed birth photography was changed in an instant (watch the video… when she holds her baby for the first time is incredible). I knew from that point on that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. To witness and capture a true miracle is something that you can’t explain to the fullest in words. Seeing a baby being brought up to a mother’s arms for the first time is one of the most beautiful scenes that I’ve witnessed.

Moving forward with this venture, I decided to join a fabulous group of women in Minnesota that are apart of MN Birth Photographers. They are in the beginning phase of implementing a certification for birth photography. This will allow members in the group to go through the proper training to photograph births in all types of settings (hospital, birth center, home).

The MN Birth Photographers group will be at the Twin Cities Birth & Baby Expo on Saturday, October 13th at the Midtown Global Market (by Abbott Northwestern). It’s a free event where you can learn more about the fabulous birth and baby services that are offered in Minnesota. I will be with the MN Birth Photographers group from Noon – 2:00 taking photos of the event so please come visit the booth or find me wandering around with my camera (and maybe Leo in the Ergobaby carrier).

With my “off-season” being November – March, I am currently looking for pregnant women who are interested in birth photography. I will be offering birth photography for a discounted price for this coming Fall/Winter.

If you are interested in learning more about birth photography, please send me an e-mail at info@jenmeneghinphotography.com.

Let me know if you’d like to meet and chat about birth, babies, and photography!

Cheers!
Jen

FALL/WINTER SCHEDULE

  August 21, 2012

Maybe because it’s the first Summer that I’ve ever been a mother of two busy boys but wowie, this Summer couldn’t have gone by any faster.  As much as I’m looking forward to crisp Fall weather and wearing my leggings/sweaters/boots, I am sad to see the warm days dwindling by….

I have a few changes that are going to be implemented this coming Fall and Winter for my photography schedule…

October always fills up quickly with individual, couples, and family lifestyle sessions.  Due to a VERY busy wedding schedule for the Fall I have decided to offer a 1-Day Fall Mini-Session Marathon on October 6th at the gorgeous Dodge Nature Center.  If you book a time-slot you can save $75 on a regular-priced mini-session so please contact me at info@jenmeneghinphotography.com if you want to book a spot (a few spots are still available).

Due to my husband’s occupation as a CPA, I am a bit of a “single parent” in the late winter to early Spring.  I have decided to take a bit of a photography hiatus during this time to spend with my kiddos before wedding season is upon me, again.  I do have a wedding in January that I’m shooting and will occasionally take studio sessions during December – March.  I know there are a few clients due with a baby around this time or have kiddos with Winter birthdays, so please send me an e-mail and schedule in advance.

From now until the end of November I am offering a Weekday Session Discount if you book on TUESDAY, THURSDAY, OR FRIDAY.  You can save $50 if you book on any of the three days and the sessions can be held in the Twin Cities area.  Please note that THURSDAY is the only day of the week that you can book in the studio.

I look forward to all of the exciting Lifestyle Sessions and weddings that I have coming up this Fall and Winter… Thank you for all your support, it truly means the world to me.

Cheers.
Jen

NICOLE

  July 16, 2012

You might remember Nicole’s 20 week maternity session and her baby gender-reveal… Well, we are now weeks away from Baby E.’s arrival into the world.

The day we shot these photos it was well above 100 degrees so the session was nice and quick…  We went over to the Walker Art Center and walked around a bit before we headed out for a fun girl’s night in Minneapolis.

The next time you see photos of Nicole will be when she is holding her daughter.  Yup… Pretty sure I just teared up typing that last sentence.  This lady can’t wait to meet her little niece.

Cheers.
Jen

Rainy day = Warm studio snuggling and wellies in the puddles…

I loved working with this beautiful momma-to-be, her hubby, and their 3 pups. I cannot wait to meet their little guy in August.

Thank you, K. Family, for spending a rainy afternoon with me. Wishing you all the best in the next 2 months before your son arrives!

BABY ELSEN: GENDER REVEAL

  March 25, 2012

My friend, Nicole, found out last Tuesday the gender of her 2nd baby but wanted to do something fun to reveal the baby’s gender to family and friends. I was trying to think of something original where we could use something she loves, that is pink and blue, and has a “Spring-feel” to it. The first thing that popped into my head was flowers at the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market. Thank goodness that this was the first Saturday that it opened and there vendors with buckets of flowers everywhere.





 

BABY ELSEN IS A…..

GIRL!!!







As much as I am partial to boys, I was crossing my fingers that Nicole would have a little girl.  Some women are just meant to be mother’s of daughters and Nicole is definitely one of those women.  I am SO happy for my best friend and cannot wait to meet my little niece this late-Summer.

Nicole and I have been friends since we were 12. We’ve been side-by-side through the awkward years of Junior High and High School. We were college roomates. Nicole and Matt (her now husband) set Dan and I up in college. We were each others Maid-of-Honor. We now live 2 miles away from each other in the same town. I am the God Mother of her son, she is the God Mother of Maxwell. We have pretty much been right next to each other for every big milestone in life. I am blessed to have such a rare, special, once-in-a-lifetime friendship. Totally thankful for this woman.

Cheers to my very best friend, Nicole, as she goes through her second pregnancy. May the next 20 weeks be filled with many baby kicks, no morning sickness, and yummy cravings.

Love you!
