One thing I love about winter downtime is the ability to expand my horizon and focus on other area’s of shooting,other than my wedding + engagement work. A new exciting opportunity arose this winter. A publisher had contacted me and asked me if I was interested in shooting the family feature pictures for their two monthly magazine mailings(South Eagan Neighbors Magazine and Mendota Heights Living Magazine.) These two monthly magazines mailings are exclusive to the homeowners that live within those area’s. They are also always looking for local advertisers that would love to be featured in their magazines that live in those area’s as well.

It has been an absolute BLAST working with Judy Skeie-Voss(Publisher) and Jodi Ritacca(Content Coordinator) monthly arranging the family shoots,meeting these awesome feature families and seeing my work published in their magazines! Such a fun and exhilarating change! Very different than what I am used to with the hustle and bustle of wedding photography! The Owens family was a complete pleasure to work with,graciously offering us tea and some amazing peanut brittle that they make homemade within their catering business called Kalahari Foods. Take a peek at some of their awesome photo’s from the experience,enjoy!
