Minneapolis Newborn Photography – The Svendsen Family

“POP!” A stream of blue gushed from the balloon after it was hit with the dart. “A BOY!!!!!” Everyone shouted, hugged and congratulated Matt and Amy as they discovered the happy news during the dart game at their newborn gender reveal party last summer.

Matt + Amy spent the next few months planning and preparing the nursery and getting life ready for their new little boy to enter the world. They had to do a lot of work to his room including removing old flooring, painting, and of course adding in all the cute furniture a baby could need. At some point along the way, Matt + Amy talked with me about working together for their newborn photos once their little guy arrived, so we began our plans for our photo session as well.

William Matthew made his debut just a few days before the beginning of 2016. A couple weeks later, I spent some time at Matt + Amy’s house photographing them spending time together as a new little family. Even their dog Strummer wanted to get in on the fun! Little Will was trying his hardest to stay awake so he didn’t miss a moment of the party, but after awhile he finally gave in to his urge to nap. We were able to spend lots of time creating great portraits of everyone together. And then afterward I was able to collect their favorite images into a beautiful album that they will enjoy for years to come.

Thanks again Matt + Amy for working with me – I am so happy for you as you begin your new lives as a family together. Congratulations to you all!!! (You too, Strummer!)

MN Landscape Arboretum Engagement Photos | Robin + Paul

The day was upon us. We could *finally* go through with Robin + Paul’s winter Minnesota Landscape Arboretum engagement session after continually delaying it for almost a month. Why the delays? Because even though we live in the mega-snowy state of Minnesota, we had NO snow! Zip. Zilch. Not a flake! We were hoping to get some beautiful snowy engagement photos at the ever-amazing MN Landscape Arboretum. So when we finally had a couple of snow days (I believe it was only a mere 4-5 inches or so) we jumped at the chance!

Robin + Paul were so much fun to work with – from Paul’s cute one-liners and jokes, to Robin’s infectious laughter, we had such an awesome time together! They brought in some great props and some of their own fun ideas to the mix as well. We ended up spending almost two hours together! The two ways we knew our session was coming to an end: first, the sun was setting (treating us to an awesome sunset) so we were losing light fast; and second, we all started to notice that, as the sun was going down, we were getting reeeeealllly cold.

Robin + Paul, thank you so much for working with me for your engagement photos! The Arboretum under a fresh snowfall was such a beautiful backdrop. And of course, you guys are SO adorable together. I am so excited to be working with you, and can’t wait for your big day later this summer!

Minneapolis Photographer Wall Art

Posted by on Jan 20, 2016 in Blog, Product Photography | No Comments

Today I want to highlight Carina Photographics’ wide variety of hand-crafted, customized, heirloom Wall Art that we can produce from any of the images we create for you. Options include Framed Wall Prints and Canvases, Metal Prints, and Gallery Wrap Canvases.

We work with several unique artisans to create professional artwork that is archival, shows true, vibrant colors, and is professionally finished to protect and display your images for years to come. We also work with an amazing local framer who uses gorgeous solid wood frames as well as fabric liners, instead of traditional paper mats, for a unique look and feel. Any of our prints framed with glass use high-quality UV-protective glass to maintain the colors in your delicate prints and keep them vibrant and true as long as possible. We even offer our complementary professional art installation service for those who choose our Finished Wall Art options (framed or metal art) that will help ensure your artwork will look the best that it can in your home.

Following are some examples of the options we offer:

FRAMED CANVAS
Museum-grade, wood-framed, archival canvas that is hand-stretched and custom-framed in black, charcoal or walnut floating frames.

GALLERY WRAP CANVAS

METAL PRINTS
A new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Images take on an almost magical luminescence – colors are vibrant and the presentation is breathtaking. Detail and resolution are unsurpassed. Images are ready to hang and float slightly off the wall.
