BRYNN’S SMILE BOX

  October 03, 2014

THIS PAST SUMMER I DECIDED TO START A PERSONAL/PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT TO HIGHLIGHT A FEW AMAZING & INSPIRING PEOPLE IN OUR OWN COMMUNITY WHO ARE MAKING A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD. I HAVE A FEW WONDERFUL INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS TO SHOWCASE ON MY BLOG LATER THIS FALL & WINTER BUT WANTED TO KICK-OFF MY PROJECT WITH BRYNN & HER FAMILY.

BRYNN’S SMILE BOX FOUNDATION

BRYNN WAS BORN JUST OVER A YEAR AGO WITH A UNILATERAL COMPLETE CLEFT LIP & PALATE. HER PARENTS, WHITNEY & ARIK, STARTED THE CLEFT JOURNEY WITH BRYNN AT GILLETTE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL IN SAINT PAUL, MINNESOTA SOON AFTER SHE WAS WELCOMED TO THE WORLD. THEY WANTED A WAY TO CONNECT & HELP OTHER FAMILIES WHO WERE ON THE SAME CLEFT JOURNEY AND STARTED BRYNN’S SMILE BOX FOUNDATION. EACH SMILE BOX IS $10 AND HAS SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR CHILDREN USING AN ORTHO CLEFT RETAINER. THE SMILE BOX CONTAINS: A SCISSORS TO CUT THE TAPE THAT PULLS AND HELPS RESHAPE THE AREA, A FLASHLIGHT TO LOOK INTO BABY’S MOUTH, AND A GIFTCARD FOR PARENTS TO USE AT GILLETTE’S CAFÉ. THE HOSPITAL ALSO ADDS IN NEEDED DENTAL SUPPLIES FOR EACH SMILE BOX. 

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DONATE TO HELP BRYNN’S SMILE BOX, PLEASE VISIT THEIR PAGE:  BRYNN’S SMILE BOX

ALSO, YOU CAN VIEW THEIR STORY THAT APPEARED ON FOX 9 NEWS

THANK YOU TO BRYNN, WHITNEY, & ARIK FOR SHARING YOUR STORY AND LETTING ME CAPTURE YOUR BEAUTIFUL FAMILY. YOU ARE SUCH AN INSPIRATION AND A REMINDER THAT WE CAN ALL MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN OUR EVERY DAY LIFE. THANK YOU! xoxo

LOUISA & JESSE

  September 12, 2014

99% OF MY BUSINESS IS LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY BUT I WILL OCCASIONALLY SCHEDULE A WEDDING DURING THE WINTER MONTHS. I WAS JUMPING UP AND DOWN WHEN LOUISA AND JESSE ASKED ME TO DOCUMENT THEIR WEDDING NEXT FEBRUARY ON AN ISLAND OFF OF CANCUN, MEXICO. THESE TWO ARE SO BEAUTIFUL, INSIDE & OUT, AND HAVE SO MUCH LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER. WE STARTED AT MY STUDIO FOR FUN/FORMAL PHOTOS WHERE WE INCLUDED THEIR BABY, HENRY. AFTER THE STUDIO, WE ENDED THE EVENING OVER IN THE NORTH LOOP OF MINNEAPOLIS WHERE THESE TWO LOVEBIRDS MET MANY YEARS AGO.

LOUISA & JESSE… THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME THE HONOR OF DOCUMENTING THIS AMAZING MILESTONE IN YOUR LIFE! NEXT TIME YOU SEE PHOTOS OF L & G IT WILL BE ON A SUNNY BEACH IN MEXICO… WITH MARGARITAS IN HAND. :)

OUTDOOR MINI-SESSION (SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 22ND)

WITH THE WEATHER BEING SO UNPREDICTABLE THE  LAST 2 YEARS & THE HIKE UP TO RAMSEY (SPOKEN LIKE A CITY GIRL), I HAVE DECIDED TO NOT USE THE CHRISTMAS TREE FARM FOR THIS SEASON. INSTEAD, I WILL BE USING A GORGEOUS LOCATION THAT IS CLOSER TO MINNEAPOLIS BUT STILL HAS THE “UP NORTH” FEEL WITH THE PINE & BIRCH TREES… AND HOPEFULLY SNOW!

LEO IS 2

  March 14, 2014

MY BABY, LEO, TURNED 2 AT THE END OF DECEMBER AND I WASN’T ABLE TO GET US OVER TO THE STUDIO UNTIL ABOUT 2 MONTHS AFTER HIS BIRTHDAY. LIKE MOST 2 YEAR OLDS, HE WAS RUNNING EVERY WHICH WAY AND NOT WANTING TO LOOK AT THE CAMERA. WE SPENT ABOUT 15 MINUTES AT MY STUDIO AND THEN DECIDED TO HEAD OVER TO THE SAINT PAUL UNION DEPOT TO LET HIM CRUISE AROUND. I HAVE BEEN IN MY STUDIO FOR OVER A YEAR AND THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME I’VE BEEN INSIDE THE DEPOT… IT WAS GORGEOUS! I’M SO HAPPY TO HAVE THIS BEAUTIFUL LOCATION ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE STUDIO AS ANOTHER OPTION FOR CLIENTS.

HERE IS MY PEANUT, LEO…

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. :)
