I absolutely could not wait to get home, upload these photos, and get to work. Last Saturday I spent two hours with these adorable twins. Those two hours were jam packed full of exploration, excitement, snacks, and even tears. When all was send and done I had close to a billion photos to look through. That’s right… a billion.

While you probably wouldn’t mind seeing nearly a billion photos of these cuties I’ll save you a bit of time and show you my most favorite few. And by few, as always, I mean a bunch.

As the air was quite cool in the morning we began indoors inside the Guthrie Theatre.
20121020-collins-4.jpg
We went straight up to the Amber Lounge. The girls had some time to get comfortable and do some exploring.
20121020-collins-17.jpg
They were pretty interested in being held for a while, which is understandable. I was new and we were in a weird yellow room with giant windows.  Pretty strange, right?
20121020-collins-24.jpg
Soon the girls got a bit more comfortable and peered out the windows into the fog.
20121020-collins-39.jpg
Same eyebrow raised. :)

This little one was pretty into doing her own thing.. and quite quickly!
20121020-collins-149.jpg
We made our way down to the fourth floor where everything was a bit more normal colored.
20121020-collins-210.jpg
There was so much outside to look at it. I love getting reflections in these windows. :)
20121020-collins-244.jpg
There are giant comfy black chairs to climb on throughout the theatre.
20121020-collins-258.jpg
We of course blew kisses.
20121020-collins-263.jpg
And looked out the windows some more.
20121020-collins-272.jpg
And constantly asked for more snack. 
20121020-collins-311.jpg
And licked the windows.
20121020-collins-315.jpg
And wondered why window licking was happening. Ew.
20121020-collins-350.jpg
After the girls had about enough to exploring inside we went out, just past the Mill City Saturday market.
20121020-collins-351.jpg
We found this nice wall but the girls weren’t overly interested in looking at me.
20121020-collins-411.jpg
This little lady spoke to my heart by exploring the numerous rocks.
20121020-collins-429.jpg
This one was pretty pumped that I brought bubbles along.
20121020-collins-434.jpg
20121020-collins-453.jpg
We managed to get them together for a few seconds at a time.
20121020-collins-482.jpg
Though that didn’t mean they were actually going to do the same thing or look in the same direction. 
20121020-collins-503.jpg
No comment. :)
20121020-collins-520.jpg
More snacks.
20121020-collins-598.jpg
I always get a few of these reaching for my camera shots. Love them. :)

The girls were nearing the end of their available attention and tolerance for me and my camera. We headed down to the boardwalk for a few more shots before calling it a day.

Last weekend I photographed a lovely wedding in downtown Minneapolis. Unfortunately the weather made the day a bit more difficult but the wedding, portrait time, and reception, were all perfect.

Here are a few of my favorite photos (sorry about the weird formatting/frames, I pulled this from my frost on flower blogger):

Posting to Instagram. :) My favorite couple yet.

The bride is a school bus driver.
20121013-ai-427.jpg
So we got a few shots of her in the driver’s seat of one of the shuttle buses.

A big wedding party but I managed to squeeze them all in.
20121013-ai-549.jpg
Mr. Bridesmaid didn’t really like to smile.
20121013-ai-569.jpg
A lot of thought when into which pair of shoes the bride would wear.

Some goofy stuff.
20121013-ai-631.jpg
Some normal stuff.
20121013-ai-618.jpg
Overall it was a ton of fun.

We did some jumping photos by the Stone Arch Bridge.

I wish I could have stayed to enjoy one of these!
20121013-ai-914.jpg
I absolutely loved the bride’s bouquet.

Congratulations!!! :)

I first met Ali on St. Patrick’s Day earlier this year for her one year photo session. She was born just a few days before Olive so it’s been neat to keep up with her! I hope I get to see more of her in the future. This session was tons of fun – Ali is a HUGE fan of pinwheels and bubbles. I’m sure you’ll smile just looking at the few that I’ve selected below. :)
