Have a little Faith! {Minnesota High School Senior Portraits}

I love High School Senior Portraits! I have been photographing High School Seniors for the better part of 8 years-ish and it’s AMAZING how these portrait sessions have become such a right of passage for these girls.

To have the ability to show off all the hard work you’ve been doing thus far, the friends you’ve made, the hobbies you’ve enjoyed and of course some killer style! is so wonderful!

I am SOOOOOO EXCITED to offer many exclusive options to our Senior clients, and hopefully their experience with studio 60 becomes one of their fondest memories of high school!

Are you ready to join our team? We would LOVE to have you!

{Meet Faith!}

Robby | Hastings, Minnesota High School Senior Photographer

Mother Nature supplied a beautiful summer evening for capturing images of Robby with some of his favorite things in the North Country!

We might need to photoshop a state record fish in there somewhere!

Ahhhhh summer, I wish you weren’t so fleeting! How I love photographing in the beautiful outdoors!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As most of us know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and THIS year, I wanted to come up with a (hopeful) tradition… to get people in the studio and get past the excuses.

We all talk about our bodies – the good, bad and the ugly – and how SMALL are some of those worries when we probably know someone: a mother, daughter, or sister perhaps… who has had part of her body cut away from this disease.

I want to put a call out for all women, but especially those who’ve been dealing with cancer.
I want to share your story.
I want to share how beautiful YOU are, even if you might not feel as such.
Please throw away the thoughts of “Maybe later”, because sometimes, there is no later.

So please, be brave and take the opportunity to EXIST IN PHOTOGRAPHS.

You are someone who is loved, and I want you to be remembered for all time.

The Pilgrim Family | Perham, MN Family Photographer

Ohhhhhhhhhhh what a beautiful day…. what a beautiful family:)

It’s so wonderful to spend time with people and just shoot the bull… have a brew… and play pin-ball:)
Much love friends!

In denial that our children grow up {Perham, Minnesota Family Photographer}

I will be honest. There are MANY times I just don’t see the forest for the trees. Sure, I’m watching my own girls growing up, becoming their own person and for the love, one is nearly taller than me and I ask myself, “when the hell did that happen?”
So when I see friends and their kids… I’m generally thinking the same thing… It’s amazing, since we never age, right?
Meet the Guck’s.

Handsome boys.

….and I dug this one out of the archives because momma wanted to recreate this shot from 2009. TWO THOUSAND AND NINE!!! Where have those five years gone??

It was great visiting and hanging out with the mosquitoes:)Aaaaahhhh summer!

Have you captured YOUR family yet this year?;)Call me :: 218.346.5420
