Minneapolis Family Photographer :: Fall Mini Session Day Announced!

Hi everyone! It’s that time of year again. School is starting, the state fair is almost over and soon enough the leaves are going to be turning colors. I do love summer all the way to my toes but I also have a love affair with fall. I get to pull out that warm sweater, drink hot apple cider and visit the apple orchard with my family. The best part is catching up with all my past families and meeting new families for their annual Christmas/Holiday pictures. So guess what? I’m super excited to celebrate fall with the Michelle Tanner Photography 2010 Fall Mini Session Day. All the details are posted below.

Wayzata Photographer :: Photographer Shoots Photographer

I would like to introduce you to Amy Dokken from Studio Starfish. Isn’t she a doll?!? I met Amy about a year ago when we attended a photography workshop together. I am truly blessed to be able to network with other Minneapolis based photographers that turn into friends. The more I learn about Amy, the more I realize we have in common. We both love Volvo cars, love travel/living abroad, and of course the best part, the love for all things Nikon! Us Nikonians must stick together and take on the photography world!

I recently had the chance to spend a couple hours goofing around Downtown Wayzata with Amy in an attempt for both of us to collect new images of ourselves. This is no easy task. After all, I’m a photographer because being in front of the lens is just too awkward. I shot some totally gorgeous images of Ms. Amy. I’m honored to know her and she is truly an asset to the Minneapolis photography community. Oh, and she blogged some images of me over here.

Minneapolis Photographer :: Spotlight on Music Producer Patrik Tanner

On a regular basis I get fantastic feedback on the songs that I have on my website and slide shows. The comments I get mean so much to me. Music is important. Dick Clark once said, “Music is the soundtrack of our lives.”. I often find myself living inside a song. I can be pushing the stroller in the mall with a tune in my head… the soundtrack to MY life. Because music is such a big part of my life, I love to pair music up with my images. Lucky for me, I married a music producer! Because I’m a proud wife, I’d like to introduce you to the man behind my music, my husband, Patrik Tanner. I’m a lucky girl to have custom songs written and produced for me and my websites.

There is a need for licensed music on websites, blogs, cafes & coffee shops. And just how cool is it to have a custom song written and recorded for your website? Very cool! Are you a fellow photog looking for the most perfect (and affordable) music to set to your images? Or a business person looking for background music on your website? Patrik is the musician/producer you need to call. He can write, produce & record a song to fit your needs and all at a reasonable fee. He has also released 9 full length albums. You can listen to them on iTunes or at

Patrik’s website is getting updated but you can visit him at Or become a fan on Facebook. I know he would love to connect with you about your specific project needs. Or to talk about 70s glam music. Whichever you prefer. 😉

Well, that’s me being a proud wife. I just had to give a “shout out” to my very talented husband. I’m honored to be his wife! I also have to share this picture of him as a young boy in Sweden at the age of 3. Music is our lives and we are proud to be involved in the music industry.
