Need a quick Christmas Card Pic? I'm now booking Holiday Mini Sessions for the weekend after Thanksgiving – November 29-30.
Meet me at a Christmas Tree Lot, downtown or your favorite Minneapolis spot – I'll be there to capture you, Grandma and Grandpa, Uncle Eddie, just the two of you or a new baby.
$100 – 30 minute session (ok...so sometimes it takes longer), 10 edited images, digital rights and a Facebook timeline.
All images processed within a week with plenty of time to send out those cards!
It's the most wonderful time of the month – Minneapolis Institute of Arts FAMILY DAY @artsmia! I know, I know...I'm always bragging about life in the big city...but seriously...you probably don't believe me how great it is to bring your toddler to an art museum!! One with breakable stuff!!
Whether or not you live in the Twin Cities metro I suggest you mark the 2ND SUNDAY OF EVERY MONTH to make your trek in town. An entire day worth of FREE activity awaits where you kids can create art projects out of REAL ART MATERIALS (not the crap you find in preschool classrooms) and kids are actually INVITED into the galleries on a scavenger hunt.
I let Oliver loose in the museum in order to push all of our stuff in the stroller. We made "art cars," "rocket packs," floated paper boats in the fountain and danced to Choo Choo Bob's rock band. I didn't yell once. Write that down.
Don't miss it. Click HERE to plan for next month.
Looking for the perfect spot of pick your family pumpkins? Sorry...I haven't found one in the Twin Cities yet. If you're looking in Sartell or Mankato I could direct you to fabulous farms and great prices. Besides the Home Depot it can be hard to find the perfect patch in the metro.
The other night the boys and I drove to Lino Lakes – Centerville Road meets Birch Road. There are several farms/farm stands at this intersection – all darling in their own way – but the one on Centerville, just north of the intersection, had what I saw as the perfect photo op.
Do you have a favorite patch around Minneapolis? Urban farms seem to be getting harder to come by. I'd LOVE a suggestion for next year (and would be happy to make another trip before Halloween 2014).
Happy patch finding and picture taking.
PS - If you have a hard time getting smiles and eye contact with your lens. I feel your pain.
