SPRING IN THE CITY

  April 14, 2014

HAPPY SPRING! WITH THE WEATHER STARTING TO WARM UP AND THE FOOT OF SNOW FINALLY MELTING, I HAVE DECIDED TO DO A LIFESTYLE MINI-SESSION DAY IN THE CITY TO CELEBRATE. THE LOCATION WILL BE SET IN MINNEAPOLIS WITH THE SKYLINE AS ONE OF THE BACKDROPS  ALONG WITH ALL THE COOL/URBAN FIXTURES AROUND THE CITY. IN THE SAME AREA, WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO USE A NATURE BACKDROP IF YOU’RE MORE INTERESTED IN THE GRASS AND TREES.

LIKE I’VE SAID MANY TIMES IN THE PAST… MINI-SESSIONS ARE GREAT FOR ANYONE AND EVERYONE. IF THIS SPECIFIC DATE DOES NOT WORK WITH YOUR SCHEDULE, I DO OFFER MINI-SESSIONS YEAR-ROUND.

ALL SESSIONS WILL BE DONE IN THE EVENING SO WE CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE BEAUTIFUL SUNSET OVER THE CITY SKYLINE. IF YOU’RE INTERESTED IN BOOKING A TIME-SLOT PLEASE SEND ME AN E-MAIL :: INFO@JENMENEGHINPHOTOGRAPHY.COM

EMILY

  January 17, 2014

EMILY IS A TALENTED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN MINNEAPOLIS (THE WILDERNESSES PHOTOGRAPHY) AND I WAS SO EXCITED WHEN SHE CONTACTED ME TO DO HEADSHOTS. WE TOTALLY CLICKED WHEN HER AND JORDAN (THE OTHER HALF OF THE WILDERNESSES) TOOK ANNIVERSARY PHOTOS FOR DAN AND I LAST FALL. I KNEW THAT I LIKED HER EVEN MORE WHEN SHE ASKED TO BRING ONE OF HER PUPS, PICKLE, TO THE STUDIO TO PARTAKE IN PHOTOS.

EMILY HAS THE MOST IMPECCABLE STYLE… SUCH A COOL, MINNEAPOLIS VIBE. NOT TO MENTION, THIS GIRL WAS AAAAAMAZING TO PHOTOGRAPH… EM, I THINK YOU NEED TO GET IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA MORE OFTEN. :)

GOODBYE, 2013

  January 13, 2014

I BLINKED AND 2013 HAPPENED… WHAT A CRAZY, BEAUTIFUL YEAR THIS HAS BEEN.

THIS YEAR I DECIDED TO ONLY TAKE IN A FEW WEDDINGS AND TRY TO FOCUS ON BIRTH AND LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY. I HAD HIGH HOPES OF REALLY ATTEMPTING TO GET MYSELF OUT THERE IN THE BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY WORLD AND THEN LIFE HAPPENED. AND HERE WE ARE IN 2014… I TRULY, MADLY, LOVE BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY BUT I DON’T THINK IT WILL BE FEASIBLE FOR ME TO TAKE ON A FULL-TIME BIRTH SCHEDULE WITH ME BEING A STAY-AT-HOME MOM WITH LIMITED CHILDCARE OPTIONS RIGHT NOW. MY GOAL IS TO DIVE IN ONCE THE BOYS ARE IN SCHOOL FULL-TIME… WHICH I CANNOT BELIEVE IS ONLY 1.5 YEARS AWAY FOR MY OLDEST SON.  

THIS YEAR I WAS BLESSED TO BE ABLE TO COLLABORATE ON A FEW DIFFERENT STYLED SHOOTS WITH A GROUP OF AMAZINGLY TALENTED LADIES IN THE WEDDING INDUSTRY. TWO OF OUR STYLED SHOOTS WERE FEATURED ON RUFFLED BLOG AND A NORTHWOODS WEDDING. I REALLY ENJOYED WORKING IN A GROUP SETTING (THE TEAM-SPORTS GIRL IN ME) AND I’M CROSSING MY FINGERS THAT I CAN TALK SOME OF MY WEDDING VENDOR BUDDIES INTO DOING THIS AGAIN FOR 2014.

LIKE I HAD PREVIOUSLY TALKED ABOUT, I TOOK IN ONLY A FEW WEDDINGS FOR 2013. AFTER THE WEDDINGS THAT I PHOTOGRAPHED AND THE 2ND-SHOOTING OPPORTUNITIES THAT I HAD, I REALLY MISSED FOCUSING MY TIME ON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY. I AM EXCITED TO BE ADDING BACK IN WEDDINGS FULL-TIME FOR THE NEW YEAR. SPEAKING OF, IF YOU ARE ENGAGED OR KNOW OF SOMEONE WHO IS ENGAGED… PLEASE CHECK OUT MY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY INFO FOR 2014.

I FEEL LIKE YEAR 3 OF MY BUSINESS IS ABOUT DIGGING DEEP, GETTING OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE, AND FINDING WHAT FIRES ME UP. I’M AT THAT WONDERFUL AND WEIRD STAGE OF ARTIST SOUL-SEARCHING… I SPENT MY FIRST 2 YEAR GETTING MY FEET WET (AKA – FIGURING OUT HOW THE HELL TO USE MY EQUIPMENT AND NOT LOOK LIKE A COMPLETE IDIOT IN FRONT OF CLIENTS), LEARNING THE BUSINESS SIDE, AND MEETING CLIENTS/INDUSTRY FOLK. THIS YEAR I AM GOING TO FOCUS ON PUTTING MY HEAD DOWN, CREATE WORK THAT MAKES MY HEART HAPPY, AND NOT TRY TO KEEP UP WITH THE JONESES. 

LIKE I SAID… GOING ON 3 YEARS… SO THANKFUL AND BLESSED FOR THE AMAZING PEOPLE THAT HAVE TRUSTED ME TO CAPTURE SUCH WONDERFUL MILESTONES IN THEIR LIFE AND THE CONTINUOUS SUPPORT THROUGH THESE YEARS. I TRULY AM SO GRATEFUL FOR EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU… THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

2014… I HAVE A FEELING YOU’RE GOING TO BE A DAMN GOOD YEAR. WELCOME!

CHRISTINA

  February 13, 2013

MY COUSIN, CHRISTINA, RECENTLY SIGNED WITH A MODELING AGENCY AND WE DECIDED TO DO A QUICK LITTLE SESSION AROUND MY SAINT PAUL STUDIO. WE STARTED INDOORS FOR A FEW SIMPLE HEADSHOTS AND THEN DECIDED TO WALK AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD FOR A FEW OUTDOOR PHOTOS. I TYPICALLY DON’T SHOOT INDIVIDUAL PHOTOS SO I WAS OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE A BIT BUT CHRISTINA WAS DEFINITELY A PRO IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA… I DON’T THINK I HAD TO GIVE ANY “POSING” GUIDANCE ONCE.

BEST WISHES TO CHRISTINA!
