Minneapolis Pet Photographer

If you follow us on instagram @farkaphoto you have already seen these pictures. Our bulldogs, Butter and Wilson need their own feed as much as I photograph them. They get a bit too excited when the camera comes out and the studio lights are turned on. They are divas though (can I call a boy dog a diva?), it typically takes a couple shots, but these two think as soon as the lights flash they are done and onto their treats. We usually photograph them separately because Wilson, the puppy thinks he should be the only star and dominates the stage. This annoys Butter who sits perfectly still and focused on the task at hand. It is never a dull moment with these two and they bring us so much joy.

This first one I captioned I’m Sexy and I know it. Wilson’s expression and the way his leg is extended out makes the caption fitting. The last photo in this series is Butter with her dignified look, she knows she’s a good listener and is very proud of this fact.

East Ridge High School, Woodbury, MN Senior Portrait Photographer

They say all good things must come to an end and summer if most definitely coming to an end. I feel like we barely had a summer this year, it started late and really seemed to be cool and wet this summer. Now it is beautiful, but fall is definitely in the air – warm sun, but crisp air. After our wicked winter last year, I was hoping for a hot and sticky summer, so I could be happy about the change of season. Anyone else in Minnesota feeling this way? The experts are predicting another cold winter and I will admit I’m dreading being so cold. I’m actually outfitting my ski race boots with heaters this fall for the upcoming race season.

Another senior season is wrapping up and I’m already in the midst’s of planning for the 2016 senior season with new session and pricing options as well as a few promotions you will only find here on the blog. So, if you are a future senior you will want to check back.

In-the-meantime, one of my senior clients Brandon from East Ridge High School. I really love photographing high school seniors.

Carrie – Somerset, Wisconsin Senior Portrait Photographer

Senior portrait season is in full swing. It’s a fun time of year.

We will open our weekends up starting September 9th if you are still looking to get your senior portraits done and are looking for weekend availability.

We have had some inquiries about fall colors, although I’d love to be able to say for sure, it is hard to predict fall colors in Minnesota, especially given our weird weather this year. It typically is best in the Twin Cities the first two weeks in October. It’s a short window. We photograph a lot of families during this time too, so availability is limited.

The State Fair opened today, it is always bitter sweet because that means the last two weeks of summer break. We hope you get out there and eat something on a stick and enjoy these last days of summer break.

I thought I’d post a fall session. It is a really lovely time to have portraits done outside since the weather is usually decent and the humidity has long passed.

Nice, France – Tour de France

We have been watching the Tour de France and remembering our trip to Nice, France last year to view one of the legs of the Tour. France was never on my radar – I know – weird. I’m so happy we went because it didn’t disappoint and we find ourselves longing to go back. Our primary purpose was to experience the Tour de France – a bucket list experience for my husband.

Now when we watch we have an idea of what is going on behind the scene. Frankly, I’m not thrilled with watching hours of bike riding and commentators (we dvr – best invention), but having been to a leg of the Tour, it puts everything into perspective. I still find it nuts how close fans are to the riders – it is just insane. These riders are going so darn fast and literally people can ruin a riders stage. I couldn’t believe how close some of the spectators were to the riders this year in London – yikes – too close for comfort. I covered my eyes a few times.

And the spectators turning their backs on the riders to get a selfie – oh my goodness, INSANE! Just not safe! We took pictures, of course while we were there, but I’m pretty certain we would not have turned our back on a peloton going over 45 mph. Yikes!

At any rate, it truly is an amazing sport and the production behind the scenes to get this event up and running is spectacular. It will always be remembered fondly. I even hear from my son and husband they’d like to do it again. We shall see…I enjoyed it for sure, but there is a lot more world to see.

I have to say we loved the people in this region, very warm and helpful. Every night we stopped at this café for pastries and treats and answered questions from the locals. This one young lady was particularly lovely and I hope one day she can visit America to fulfill one of her bucket list items. And the scenery is breathtakingly beautiful.

The one single thing I will always remember is the Mediterranean Sea – it was glass like while we were there, so calm and blue. The beaches were rocks, no sand unless a resort brought it in for a private beach. So next time we go we will bring our Teva sandals. The rocks were not sharp, but if you are not use to walking on rocks it can be slow going.

We loved our short time in Nice.
