435 by MJC the Photo Love Challenge ~ mQn Photography

I was so honored to be one of the 20 fantastic photographers chosen by Matilda Jane in their Photo Love challenge.  I was sent an adorable tunic (which my daughter wore to school today) to photograph from their 435 tween collection.  I love Matilda Jane such fun appropriate clothes for fresh, spirited and of course fashionable girls!  The theme is “It’s What’s in the Inside That Counts”  I had some ideas but I really wanted to showcase how fun MJ is too.  Here are quite a few I had to choose from.  Many thanks to all my friends who helped me make the decision on which one to ultimately send in.  You can view on Instagram #435bymjc, #photolove, #mqnphotography.  Enjoy!

Hubbard Sneak Peek ~ Minnesota Ice Castle Photographer

Have you been to the Minnesota Ice Castles before?  Every year its in a new location and this year it was down in Eden Prairie (last year it was at Mall of America).  I had never heard of it before until my wonderful client and Matilda Jane Trunk Keeper told me about it and suggested a session there.  I have been so excited for this session and it kept getting delayed because of the weather not being cold enough to create/maintain the ice castles this year.  Well the other day we finally were able to complete our session.  Its a bit cold in there but it is beautiful.  What a lovely backdrop for a session!  We were there when it wasn’t open to the public but if you go during their open hours at night the place is all lit up.  We got to experience it with beautiful sunlight, my favorite.  Here are a few random images from our session!  Thank you Minnesota Ice Castles for letting us hold our session there before it was open to the public.
