Last Family Session of the Year | North Oaks, Minnesota Family Photographer

I’m not sure where the year went but it’s flown by and I’ve had the last family session of the year.  I love this location for November and December (January/February/March) sessions because it gives it a nice woodsy look even though there are no leaves on any trees.  Gotta love the evergreens!  Here are some sneak peeks from our session.  I’ll be sure to post favorites on Facebook as soon as I finish up the gallery.  Stay tuned . . . .

Family Session in the Studio | Twin Cities, Minnesota Family Photographer

I had this lovely family in my studio for a few portraits this holiday season.  You might remember them from their lovely apple picking images last year.  I’m a sucker for a ginger so I love being able to photograph them.  Their youngest son cracks me up even if he doesn’t think I’m so funny.  And their oldest seems like such a kind soul.  In any event here are just a few images from our session.  I’ll be sure to post favorites on Facebook after I edit them all.  Stay tuned . . . .

Holiday Mini Session Sneak Peeks | Twin Cities Photographer

Last week we had the first day of what I hope is annual last minute holiday mini’s.  They were such a success.  Today as this blog posts gets published will be the second day at the studio as well and rumor has it there will be a THIRD day by popular demand.  If you are interested in securing a spot contact me for details.  Otherwise keep your eye out for more information.  Here is how the first day went down and I’ll be sure to share the second day as well.  I’m really glad I can hold these mini sessions for clients in my new space.   And now I cannot wait until next year!

Pumpkin Picking on Film | North Oaks, Minnesota Film Photographer

Yesterday I got some film scans back.  I’ve been using a 35mm Canon EOS 3 Film camera and sometimes a really old (from the 70’s) Canon A-1 Film camera.  I’ve just fallen in love with film again, I think I might actually start saving for a Contax medium format film camera because I’d really love to offer amazing film sessions for my clients.  Anyway I just wanted to share a personal time with my kids on film because you know I don’t share that much personal stuff on my blog, so here goes! These were all shot on Fuji 400h film on my 35mm EOS 3. Enjoy!

Mini Sessions Explained | North Oaks, Minnesota Family Photographer

Mini sessions are a scaled down version of my regular photo sessions.  They last approx. 15-20 minutes and do not include outfit changes.  Around this time a year I get a lot of requests for family mini sessions.  I do not offer these for fall foliage sessions.  Believe it or not mini sessions take me the same amount of time to process than a full session and fall is just too busy of a time to fit them in the schedule.

I do offer mini sessions year round for 1-2 children ONLY on location.  This mean no adults.  This is a kid only session and only focused on the child or siblings.

Family sessions in the STUDIO can also be booked year round.  These make great heirloom portraits.

Snow Sessions.  Enough said, right there.  It’s too cold to stay out any longer.

Themed sessions.  These are the fun sessions like Halloween, back to school or lemonade stands.  These are great 30 minute play date specials and will be announced on facebook or instagram if they are taking place.

The exception to the above rules is when I host a day of mini sessions.  These discounted mini sessions are set-up by you.  We pick a day and a place that works and you invite your friends.  There is a non-refundable fee for booking but this is the time to get discounted mini sessions for the whole family.  I do these once or twice a year with a Matilda Jane Trunk Keeper.  She invites her clients and I photograph children, seniors, families and we do what we can in 20 minutes.  If you have a few friends that would be interested in something like this let me know and we can set up a day.

If you’d like to be notified when sign ups begin for any upcoming mini session event, please let me know and I will add you to my waitlist.

And just added is this year’s last minute holiday sessions!  Sessions will be held in the studio on November 5th & 12th 2017.   Backdrops will include fall and Christmas styled as well as heirloom (think grey and white walls only)  These are being scheduled now and times are still available.  If you are interested e-mail michele@mqnphotography.com
