Oh Salty Sea

Much of the focus of my photo blog has been on travel. Something I’ve always felt passionately about. Given we’re in the midst of a global pandemic, we’re barely leaving our home. It’s surreal how quickly things can change. We are in better shape than many, though our two person household has lost two of […]

Commanding Presence

Lauren of Mahngüs

House by the Witches Tower Gen X jokes aside, I’ve spent much of my life feeling invisible. Or, alternately, feeling a bit like a cartoon character or caricature. Either way, I’ve felt disconnected from others – family, classmates, colleagues. For over thirty years the Twin Cities music scene has provided me a safe haven. Spaces […]

Such Great Heights

Father of Waters Though we live in Minnesota, somehow my son and I saw the end of the Mississippi River – in Louisiana – before we made it to the headwaters in our own state. I’ve since rectified this. Life has become seriously overscheduled. Not uncommonly so but we hadn’t made it up North in […]

Signed, Sealed, Delivered

These days I’m spreading myself a bit thin. I have a full-time day job and have taken on a part-time teaching job at night. It has been an interesting learning experience for me but means I have less time available for photography clients. Thankfully, the timing worked out such that I was able to photograph […]

I don’t think I’m particularly superstitious but it feels like this could be my fault. Maybe that’s the jet lag talking. But the past few years I’ve taken […]

Here We Goat Again

Happy Vernal Equinox! We celebrated Spring a little early. Technically it was St. Patrick’s Day but that doesn’t mean a whole lot to us. We were just excited to hang out on a friend’s goat farm and use his sauna. That was a fantastic way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon. It will be even […]

Standing at the Threshold

My last post expressed concern over the Soap Factory’s fate  (a local, beloved arts institution). Apparently I wasn’t the only one worried. Due to the outpouring of support and concern for the Soap Factory during the last few weeks, the board has decided to host a town hall meeting, where community members can hear directly […]
