Please take a moment to check out a guest blog post I did for the lovely ladies at A Northwoods Wedding!  I chat a bit about a new option I am offering for 2012 – the photo booth!!  More details and info about the photo booth coming very soon!

If you haven’t checked out A Northwoods Wedding yet, you simply must add it to your bookmarks!!  I definitely recommend this wedding inspiration blog to all of my brides as it focuses on the Midwest!  Featured are some of the regions coolest vendors from gorgeous venues to knock-your-socks-off florists to save-your-life wedding planners.  And guess what?  They all are within your reach – not out in California!!  The ladies who run A Northwoods Wedding are amazing people as well and their clever way of presenting posts will keep you coming back for more!

I’m so incredibly excited for this Saturday!!  I love the holiday giving season and my favorite event takes place on December 10!  Help-Portrait is an amazing movement that takes place all over the world.  On Saturday, 1000’s of photographers will come together in countless countries and cities after months of planning to volunteer their time and talent by photographing, printing and delivering photos to those who may not otherwise have the opportunity to be photographed.

This year the Minneapolis group will be photographing at two different places – High School for the Recording Arts (read all about it here!) and Treehouse.  I will be stationed at Treehouse, which is a faith-based organization offering hope, guidance, and unconditional love to at-risk teens dealing with tough issues.  I will be working with another photographer to capture smiles and edit photos in one of the photo bays there.  Each young person will then receive a disk of some of the images we captured as well as their fav printed and framed.  It’s going to be such a great time.  I simply cannot wait!!

I’ll be posting a follow up soon after Saturday of a break down of the day, share the stories and show off some of the beautiful faces that’ll be there!  Stay tuned for that!

When I was north for Thanksgiving, I had a great time with the Klemetson family grabbing a few family shots – especially since the day we shot turned out to be in the 50s temperature wise!  Can’t beat that in late November!!  These four are incredibly hilarious to be around and there was no shortage of jokes and laughs.  Gotta love families like this!!
