Minnesota Rocks: a promotion and contest

We moved to Minnesota in September and we’ve now seen fall and winter come and go.   It’s fun to experience a change of seasons and I love the weather variations (especially this year when we’ve had it so easy with mild temps).  Now that we are heading into spring/summer, I am especially excited to explore the areas around and discover sites in this great state.

What are YOUR favorite MN locations?

Is there a park or picnic site you love?  Do you go to a Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings?  Maybe you hide away in a quiet bookstore when you find some time…or go antiquing…play tennis…or golf?  Your favorite place may be your own home – the place where your family lives and loves.  Maybe it’s specifically your kitchen.

I want to see what you love about Minnesota.  It will help me learn more quickly about interesting places nearby and know more about our new home in MN.

So, I offer this…

If you book a session May-Aug and share an idea for a special location, you will get a complimentary 2nd session*.  This is a rare promotion for sure…but it’s one I’m excited about because it will help me to see the best of MN and explore what is close to home.   Maybe you want pictures at home but also want to do a session at the golf course.  Now you can have both!  We’ll do what you love to do, with the people you love most.

Also, if you can’t book a session now but have an idea for a place that you would love to have a family photo session, you will get $50 credit to KA photo design (toward a photo session at a time of your choosing) for sharing.  Simply send me a message by clicking on the contact tab of this site and let me know where your dream session would be.  I will keep you on the books for a $50 credit.

I’m looking for amazing scenery, yes – always…but a great photo location is usually an ordinary place made beautiful by the way it is captured.  The site may not have obvious beauty.  Often times it’s a normal, everyday place that is special because it is a setting for a story about your life.  I want to see what you love to do…

So tell me about the county fair you visit every year…your secret picnic spot…the lake cabin you rent on long weekends…the beautiful field in your backyard (or your neighbor’s backyard – that works too).  Let’s go out for an adventure!

p.s.  Oh, yes – there was also mention of a contest.  At the end of summer, there will be a GRAND prize awarded to the family with the coolest location idea.  Think big people 😉


* NOTE: Print and digital images are purchased separately.  This promotion is for session fee only.  Your viewing gallery will be larger and have a great variety so if you plan to purchase a CD of all images you get everything.  Yes, everything.  Now that’s awesome, right??

I am currently booking for May-Aug and with double sessions my schedule will fill very quickly so if you want to make sure you get a session, make sure to plan ahead. Many thanks!!




Girls trip to Disneyworld!  I have many pics to edit but here’s a few until then…

Thanks to Kjerstin (my sister) and Kim (my dear friend) for snapping a few pics with me on the other side of the camera!

tooth fairy

Wake up little dreamer…

It’s time!

The tooth fairy was here!  Hooray 😉  She left a cute little pouch with a note and 2 silver dollars (for 2 little teeth).

Yes, I know a lot of these photos all look the same.  It’s just a proud mama moment!

I love, love, love…

her new toothless grin.

how peaceful she looks when she’s sleeping.

re-living the sweet moments of childhood as a parent.
