Tina & the B-Sides

Tina & the B-Sides

This past summer I got to do something really cool. I was a fly on the wall as Tina & the B-Sides recorded their new album! Music photography was my first love and it was so cool to be asked to capture the recording process. The band recorded their new album at Terrarium Recording Studios in Minneapolis. It was a family affair as my husband, Patrik Tanner (former B-Sider), produced the new album with Tina. A lot has changed in the last 12 years. Everyone has families! It was so refreshing to see the kids (including our Elliott!) come to the studio at dinner time and how important family is to all these rock and rollers. But don’t worry! I believe you will spot a bottle of Jack sitting around. The weeks in the studio were awesome. It was so fun to be able to see the inner workings of the new album. And let me tell you, you won’t be disappointed!

The new album is slated to be released in March, 2014. There will be a big release party and a whole lot of fun. Tina and the band will be releasing the new album independently which means they need YOUR help! They have set up their Pledge site and are offering some super cool swag at different pledge levels. Take note of “Dinner + Music”. It’s true. Tina IS an amazing chef. I have been lucky enough to have her cook for me in my own kitchen. I could die now. You need to have the same experience. Or what about being the 6th B-Side? Come on down and rock with me at the pre-show party!

Thank you. Thank you for supporting independent artists like me and like Tina & the B-Sides. The world would be so lonely without art and we need your support. And thank you, Tina, for allowing me to capture this amazing journey!

I have known Molly since we were in the 5th grade. (Which is totally weird since she doesn’t look a day over 25!) She was one of my best friends in middle school and I’m so happy that we have reconnected as adults. (I promise to never post the Halloween pictures of us from when we were 10 years old!) Brad and Molly are high school sweethearts. (Again, impossible! 25, I tell you!) I have been so lucky to take their portraits over the years and watch their kids grow!

I know I’m a broken records here, but I have the most fabulously dressed clients! Molly did an awesome job coordinating the family outfits! I love the way the bold patterns complement each other and how the blacks, grays and whites in the outfits balance each other. And it doesn’t hurt that everyone in this family is super adorable! This year we met up at sunset in a new favorite location in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Top secret… you have to book with me to find out! Thank you, Molly and Brad, for having me capture your darling family! Eden Prairie Family Photographer

Minneapolis Wedding Photographer Blue Horse Farm

What could be more perfect than a fall wedding at a horse farm in Wisconsin?! Add a food truck, caricature artist, yard games and some farm cats and you have Saturday afternoon perfection. I was so excited when I was asked to capture Wendi and Mark’s wedding at the Blue Horse Farm in New Richmond. I totally adore barn weddings and their intimate feel. Nadia at A Fine Fete Events was so wonderful to work with during the wedding. All the details were meticulously planned. One of my favorite details was the guest message tree where guests were invited to write a message to the happy couple and hang the message on a tree branch that welcomed everyone into the barn. And the bikes, of course! Wendi and Mark had so many personal touches in the wedding. Wendi’s son walked her down the isle and her daughter played guitar and sang a few songs during the reception. Every aspect was awesome. Enough from me… I will let the pictures do the talking! There are a lot of images. Go slowly and soak it all in! I am so grateful to have been there to watch Mark and Wendi exchange vows. It was an amazing day! And my streak of no rain at my weddings continues! (Knock on wood.)
