Like years past, Walker-Hackensack-Akeley Minnesota School held their Prom dinner and dance at Hiawatha Beach Resort on Leech Lake.    This time of year comes with so much unpredictability weather-wise, but not this year,  it was perfect and sunny!   Hiawatha Beach Resort boasts a wide expansive view of Leech Lake and if you ask me, it’s one of the best beaches in northern Minnesota.  Another great aspect the prom goers can enjoy is dinner from the dining room facing Leech Lake.    But before dinner begins,  for those who want a professional image capturing this once in a lifetime event,  I’m on standby to capture their images outside on the beach.   Here are the prom goers that took advantage of this option.  Don’t mind the ice and snow covered lake in the background, it’s Minnesota, that sometimes happens in April.

Weather Forecast…..3-5 inches of snow.   Not really sure.. I think it was they really meant.  We got at least 7 inches at my house  (no official measuring device used, just how far down my foot hid in the new white stuff).  LOL.   Needless to say, I’m ready for spring, flowers and thunderstorms.   I honestly didn’t want to go outside today, but when there was a lull in the storm, I grabbed my camera, walked outside and wow!!! I was awestruck!    Can you say Winter Wonderful.    You know how it’s hard to capture the scene sometime, hopefully you can imagine.   Believe it or not, it was mild, but I did have snow pants, and a parka on.. 🙂  Could’ve and should’ve sat outside in a lawn chair… well, maybe next time!

These are taken here at my “property”, my little studio outdoor oasis.

Whether I’m at home driving around or on a trip somewhere, I’m always inspired by the beauty of nature and constantly looking for “another” nature image to display in my home.  I believe capturing nature images is an integral part of my creativity as a portrait photographer as I’m always so inspired by the colors and the lighting.

Over the years, I’ve filled my home with most of my nature work… in fact, I’m kind of running out of room.   haha!    My super supportive husband has been pushing me for years to share my work with the world instead of hoarding it for only friends and family to see.

Today, I decided to formally share some of my favorite pieces.     The images in the slideshow are all images that I have captured in the Akeley, Minnesota area.  We are fortunate to have so many lakes and tree’s to enjoy which can be so beautiful to capture.

If you are interested in seeing more, please visit my website.  I’ll be sharing more soon and the stories behind the images.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.    Thank you, I hope you enjoy.

This wonderful and awesome family came together this summer for a relaxing vacation at Spirit of the North Resort.  I’ve been to this resort quite a few times for portrait sessions including capturing a wedding and it’s just a lovely place.  The road coming in is tree covered on both sides and is pretty breathtaking and then of course there’s the expansive lake views of Leech Lake.  I never get to stay late enough to see the sunsets, but I bet they are killer!   The maternal figure mentioned that they absolutely LOVED how friendly and helpful the staff were at this resort and highly recommended it.

Although the weather was HOT and HUMID for their portrait session, we wound up with some fantastic pictures, even though I know the family was sweating bullets!

Here are their favorites.
