We’re sure you’re curious about what a session with us is like, what you should expect, how long it will take, and whether or not you can include Scooter, your daughter’s new puppy.
You may be wondering about all of the little details about what to wear, what sort of location to use, or where you should plan to display your images.
Some of you may be visiting Minnesota on vacation, hanging out with the bears at the Vince Schute Wildlife Sanctuary, and you decided to take the opportunity to have photos taken at your lake house but you need a little time to decide which sizes will fit the walls back home so you need a gallery and you’ve got your fingers crossed we can do it.
Maybe you just need a payment plan.
You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers. We can even tell you The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Mel has been capturing smiles and shenanigans professionally for over 13 years, but she was bitten by the photography bug way back in ancient times (the 1990’s) and had the urge to learn the ropes at a young age. Armed with a 110 film camera, she sought out every angle in her pursuit to utterly dominate the photography industry. Much to her disappointment, it wasn’t that simple or easy.
Over the years, her knowledge outgrew camera after camera, and the next thing she knew, she was gigglesnorting each time she encountered her own early work, thanks to Facebook’s “on this day” feature.
The single thing that has stuck with her the most is how much easier it is to get subjects to smile if they feel good. She has made it her mission to deliver the fun, and that’s her secret to capturing you at your absolute best.
We’re ready to meet you and help you plan out the most epic portraits you’ve ever taken.
