Attention 2012 High School Seniors!

Yes, it’s winter, but the days are officially getting longer which only means summer is getting that much closer!  And, it will be here before you know it!  It’s time to reserve your senior session.   Session times have already started booking for summer and fall dates, so if you have a preference, call now before they are fully booked!  Call us at 701-838-7085 or drop an email at [email protected] and we’ll get you set.  Be sure to watch the video below to see samples of some of our 2011 seniors.  This coming year is going to be great!  We cannot wait to share some exciting new ideas…just for YOU!





Our Little Green Bay Fan!

*****UPDATED 5:22pm***** We’re off to the BOWL!!!

When it comes to pictures, I would much rather be taking them!  But, for special occasions like Green Bay in the NFC Championship game, it’s alright!  We’re ready for today’s game……





James and Stacey: 25 Years and Counting!

We are so blessed to be able to work with people!  Oh, but most importantly – INSPIRING!  Yes, James and Stacey came to our studio with one thing in mind – to have fun and celebrate nearly 25 years together.  The official anniversary is later this year.  To be able to capture two people displaying love, peace, joy and commitment is beyond amazing.  It’s pure smiles for us during the shoot and behind the scenes.  Here’s a look at a very loving couple….

Silver Anniversary: new rings!  How beautiful!

Both sets together:





The Jensen Family

A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!  As in…cooperative, fun and joyful little girls!  The cold weather kept us from going outside so we had extra fun in the studio!  Mom, you did awesome, too.  These pictures make us smile each time we see them.  Here’s a few of our favorites….





Alex: 2011 Minot High Senior

Creativity – this young man had tons of it!  We actually had a moment outdoors with no wind and temps in the teens – something that’s hard to find these days.  Alex – it was a pleasure working with you.  Have a great year and the best to your future.  Here’s a look at a few of our favorites….





Miranda and Mike: Engagement

We love shooting in the winter – even in the cold, especially when you have clients who don’t seem to mind one bit!   That would certainly be the case with Miranda and Mike.  What a couple!  We sure enjoyed every element of this shoot.  We look forward to the big day later this year!  Here’s a few that caught our eye…

Tajci: Emmanuel (the story of Christmas)

A Christmas post in January?  You bet!  We know…it’s hard for us to put Christmas behind, but this is a leftover post that we just didn’t get finished before the end of the year and felt it deserved a moment on the blog. 

We were honored to photograph an inspiring concert event that was held at St. John the Apostle Church this past December 15th and 16th.  Tajci became a very talented European superstar at the age of 19 and has an incredible story.  To read all about her life, visit www.idobelieve.com

Tajci has performed in nearly 1,000 churches across America and her popularity continues to grow.  Here’s a few shots from her performance in Minot…..





Tressa: 2011 MLS Senior

Winter senior shoots are so rewarding because of the breathtaking scenery that can occur with the snow! As in Tressa’s case it was the perfect day to get outdoors for a portion of her session. A great time – many laughs and now…the finished product! Below are a few of our favorites…





Fiancee Bridal Show

If you happen to be at the Fiancee Bridal Show tomorrow, come visit us!  Doors open at 12:45pm. and the show runs until 5:00pm.  The event is being held at the Civic Auditorium.  We spent the afternoon setting up our booth.  Just a small area rug to go and we’re ready to go!  Here’s a few shots…..
