Celebrating New Years Day at Como Park Conservatory

Some family traditions are intentional and planned, but others seem to sprout from spontaneity — and a desire to see and feel the world anew. In our family’s case, we‘ve unofficially started a tradition of visiting the Como Park Conservatory on New Years Day. How do I know? While I was editing these images, I discovered photos taken on the same day the last three years!

After two months of cold and snow, we love in the warmth of the green house. The smell of dirt — alive and bountiful — is intoxicating.

Fall Families

I feel so fortunate to work with families and capture fun moments. Some sessions had beautiful weather and bright autumn leaves. And, as you’d expect from the unpredictable Minnesota weather, sometimes snowfall took center stage. Here are some of my favorite images from our fall photo sessions.
