My Photos on Twin Cities Public Television

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

I blogged a little while ago about my photography being used in a permanent exhibition at the Science Museum of Minnesota (read that post by clicking here). I also found out that the same photos are being used in a television show called Brighter Futures: Childhood in Balance on Twin Cities Public Television (tpt). I was told that they would stream the show online at some point, and when I find a link to it I will update this post.

In the meantime, be sure to watch or set your DVR for one of these upcoming showings (see the schedule and channel listing on the tpt website):

Sunday April 3rd at 12 noon on tpt Life Channel

Sunday April 10th at 6:30 pm on tpt MN Channel

Monday April 11th at 12:30 am on tpt MN Channel

Monday April 11th at 6:30 am on tpt MN Channel

Minneapolis Maternity and New Born Photography | Kelsey & Jake + Baby Brody

Friday, March 25th, 2011

I went to church and high school with Jake (he was even an usher in my wedding), and Jesse Valley Photography (JVP) photographed his Minneapolis wedding to Kelsey in 2007. Needless to say, it was very exciting to hear that they were expecting a baby!  They asked me to get some pregnancy pictures for them, so I brought my camera and lights to their house for a maternity session.


I love the portrait directly above, because it reminds me of a maternity version of American Gothic. Also, we found out that Kelsey often stood that way and used her belly as a shelf.


I love how their dog Shelby rested her head so sweetly on Kelsey’s belly—it doesn’t get much cuter than that. And their other dog Toby wanted in on the photo action, too.


Not long after their session, and in an ironic twist, they would find out after the delivery that the bun in their oven was a boy—not a girl, like they thought! And he was named Brody. Here are some portraits from his new born session:


Congrats you guys! You have an adorable little family. Thank you for having me photograph it!

I took this picture between sessions at the Cowles Conservatory. Doesn’t it make you long for Spring?
