The Best Season // Minneapolis Photography

It doesn't get much better than fall in Minneapolis. This week I ventured out to shoot photos for a piece on Citinerary in which I wrote about my top five ways to celebrate this marvelous season. Hint: it involves drinking really good beer. 

Check out the journal article here and scroll through a few of the images for the article below.

World Wide Instameet #12 // Minnesota Portrait Photography

Our @Minnstameets event this year for Instagram's World Wide Instameet weekend (#WWIM12_MN) was a huge success! It is always so fun to meet new people, put faces to the profiles I've followed for a long time, and connect with those who have now become old friends. This year's event - in honor of Instagram's 5th birthday - was all about portraits. Below are some of my favorite ones that I was able to capture through the (epic, 12-hour, 5-location) day. I also wrote about it for Citinerary here

Studio 1606 // Minneapolis Portrait and Event Photography

I was recently hired to photograph Cuban painter, Roger Toledo Bueno, at Studio 1660 - where he's been an artist in residence all summer. Studio 1660 is the brainchild of Zoe Kosieradsk, who first met Roger while studying abroad in Havana. I also shot photos at a backyard exhibit of Roger's work. 

I wrote about the project for Citinerary here and have included some of the photos from the article below. 

Minnesota Lake Life

This week in a special Citinerary, "Weekend Explorer" piece, I shared some photos from our family vacation to the Brainerd Lakes area and I attempted to describe (to the journal's international readers) just what makes cabin country/up north/lake life so special. 

Check out the journal article here and see some of the photos from it below.


As a Nordeaster, I absolutely love Art-A-Whirl weekend in my neighborhood. But the festivities have evolved over time and not everyone here loves it as much as I do. On Citinerary this week, I take a look at how it's changed:

Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the weekend-long, open-studio art crawl in Minneapolis has become as much about live music and good beer as it is about art. In 600 words or fewer, I explore whether that’s actually a bad thing…

Think Spring

On Citinerary this week:

When spring teased us all with glorious sunshine and warm temps last week, only to turn gloomy and cold this week - with rain, snow, and hail yesterday - I decided drastic measures needed to be taken. (I know, I know, April showers bring May flowers and all that, but covering up newly-pedicured toes with wool socks and warm boots to endure winter-like weather is downright depressing.) So I opted to escape the weather and go into full-on denial mode. Below is not just your average “top five things to do in Minneapolis on a rainy day” list, but rather my own personal “top five ways to trick yourself into thinking it’s actually spring” list. Grab your open-toed shoes and your sunglasses and join me!

A City Made By People

I am happy to share that I am now a City Correspondent for the international online journal, Citinerary. The journal is presently composed of 6 cities with almost 50 correspondents contributing. Based out of Amsterdam and mostly representing European cities, Minneapolis is the first North American city to become a part of this growing publication. The aim of Citinerary is simple: to have the residents, makers, artists, and photographers of a given city to share it with the world. We focus on culture and lifestyle, presenting image-heavy articles from a local's perspective.

And for my first piece: I wrote about Northeast Minneapolis of course. Specifically my little corner of town where old meets new. I'd be honored if you'd check it out here. And below are a few of the photos I shot for the article.
