Here is a snap shot of a warmer than usual February day and my husband and daughter doing farm chores. You don't want to miss the cute little baby lamb toward the end. Documentary photography is not my favorite genre, I love lifestyle where I can control more of the elements. It felt good to push myself, and only create with my camera, and not my directions. Only capturing glances and smiles as they happened and letting go of that worry that it was or wasn't happening in the perfect light. 

Make sure to follow the circle around and see what my friends were up to last month. First up is the very talented  Carrie Bayless and her stunning shots of MPLS.

Modehaus Bridal http://www.erinblair.photography/blog/2017/1/modehausbridal Chelsea Lovett, owner and designer at Modehaus Bridal based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota, asked me to document her custom dressmaking process to showcase on her website. Chelsea wanted her clients to be able to know exactly the type of attention that they were going to be getting when they commission a custom gown. In this post you get to see how one custom gown comes to life, but it's one of many. You can visit her website at modehausbridal.com to check out her bridal collections as well as other custom gowns she has created. 

I love working with small business and other artists to really showcase their brand through lifestyle images. Here is what working with Chelsea looks like... and yes, you want a custom gown.. I know I do!!! Make sure to look at all the images in the post, you also get to see how great a Modehaus gown would look on your wedding day. Hair and make up done by the fabulous Steph from SM Makeup Inc , seriously, she is your girl if you need hair and makeup!

Explore Minnesota December Edition | The Science Museum of Minnesota http://www.erinblair.photography/blog/2017/1/explore-minnesota-december-edition-the-science-museum-of-minnesota December was cold, or at least the days that we had fun excursions planned. They were cut short or canceled because of the temps, so we opted inside this month for the Minnesota Project to one of our favorite places, The Science Museum of Minnesota. All 3 kids love it, and love discovering something new each time we go, as well as visiting the favorite exhibits. 

Don't forget to follow the circle around to see what my fellow Minnesota photographers were up to this month. First up is Carrie Bayless and you will love seeing where she visited.

Explore Minnesota October Edition- Voyageurs National Park http://www.erinblair.photography/blog/2016/11/explore-minnesota-october-edition--voyageurs-national-park Last month the Minnesota Project took us to Voyageurs National Park on the very northern border of Minnesota. We are hoping to plan a summer trip up there some summer, so we took advantage of a long weekend to explore the area a little. While a vast majority of the park is only accessible by water we were able to find some fun places to explore for a day. We can't wait to plan a longer trip up here and explore the rest of the park. 

Make sure to follow the rest of the circle to see where they explored this month. First up is my very talented friend Lori at Lori Dozier Photography. Click here to see what she was up to this last month.

My Minnesota September Edition Apple Jacks Orchard http://www.erinblair.photography/blog/2016/10/my-minnesota-september-edition-apple-jacks-orchard This time of year is so crazy, with shooting, fall sports, and keeping up with life. I took some time with my youngest to explore Apple Jacks Orchard in Delano Minnesota for the September My Minnesota Project. We've lived near this orchard for almost 12 years, and have only been a couple times. We went during the week, so only about half of the orchard was open, which was perfect for my little guy! We had lunch in the cafe, which we loved , played on the trains and tractors in the play area, (multiple times), checked out the animals, walked down to the river, and found a perfect pie pumpkin. As we were leaving we stopped in to pick up a dozen apple cinnamon donuts to bring home! 

Don't forget to follow the link around to see where my friends and fellow photographers explored this month, you may see some more apple orchards! First up is Erin make sure to see where she explored last month

pure emotions http://www.erinblair.photography/blog/2016/9/pure-emotions I'm not a traditional studio photographer, but I do studio sessions once in a great while. While I love shooting outside and in homes, I love the pure, organic emotions you can capture with out any distractions.

My Minnesota- August Edition- Fenske Lake Beach Ely Minnesota http://www.erinblair.photography/blog/2016/9/my-minnesota--august-edition--fenske-lake-beach-ely-minnesota The My Minnesota blog circle has a new direction, Explore Minnesota! After bit of a break we are back at it, sharing a place, near or far, that we visited during the month. This group is full of talented women, who I am so happy to call friends, that love to take time and document their own lives. Make sure to follow the circle, and maybe discover some new places. First up is my friend Tina Fisher, go check out where she explored last month. 

In August we took a vacation to Ely, Minnesota, where we spent the week day tripping into the Boundary Waters along the Echo Trail. One evening we stopped at Fenske Lake, and took the very short hike down to a little beach. My husband always begs that we please not the kids get soaked when we stop at these on fly roadside places, which of course happens each time. Is that just my family that can't be near water, with out getting completely soaked?

with her in the garden http://www.erinblair.photography/blog/2016/7/with-her-in-the-garden I spent some time wandering our garden with her. It was one of the hottest nights of the year. I wanted to remember her passion for the garden at the age of 6. I wanted to remember how her long hair tangles in the humidity. I wanted to remember her skin after a day of playing out side and running around. I wanted to remember our conversations as we weeded and got distracted by wild daisy's growing nearby.
