Dylan | Rosemount Senior Photography | Sure Shot

July 19, 2014 - Dylan | Rosemount Senior Photography | Sure Shot

Meet Dylan! Dylan was the first senior from the 2015 graduating class that I had the pleasure of photographing! I first met Dylan about a month ago when our neighborhood gang was playing bean bags in his mom’s yard. While Dylan didn’t have much interest in having senior portraits done, his mom insisted! So, we ventured down to Hastings, MN to see how high the river was after all the rain this summer!

Oh yes indeed, it’s fun time
‘cause you can’t, you won’t and you don’t stop!

In his spare time he likes to play video games, make music and hang out with friends. Dylan loves hip-hop music and aspires to be a musician himself someday! A fun little fact about Dylan is that he can solve the Rubik’s Cube!

In honor of the Beastie Boys:
To all the mothers and sisters and the wives and friends
I want to offer my love and respect to the end

2014 Summer Mini Photo Session | Hastings Photography

Summer is here! What better time is there to get some fresh photos of the kids? During the summer months we are all so busy that many families do not have time for a full photo session. Our Summer Mini Session makes it easy for you!

Whether you want to capture kids milestones or get the whole family together for fun lifestyle photos, this is a great opportunity to capture your memories in a short amount of time! All you have to do is dress up the kids and get ready to have fun!

The location we have chosen has so many options for wonderful photos that it will be hard to choose where to photograph you! From beautiful flower gardens and a historic church to a train depot and old west buildings; we will find a unique spot for your unique photos!

The summer mini session has been scheduled for August 16th & 23rd starting at 8:30am and will take place in Hastings, MN. Sessions will start on the hour and the half hour and are 20 minutes in length.

What is a mini session? 
In a nutshell, a mini session is a photography session that will last about 20 minutes and is offered at a reduced price to my clients. There are two small package options available to choose from.  Mini sessions offer many perks. For starters, it is a great way to update portraits if you do not have the time for a full session and refresh the pictures hanging on your walls. This is also a great way to get to know me as your photographer!

What is the cost? 

There are two package to choose from.


There are limited spots available and they'll go fast. Sessions are a first-come, first-serve basis. To reserve your time slot please email me at with 3 details:
  • The date you want (August 16th or 23rd)

  • Your package choice ($125 print or $175 digital) 
  • Your choice of check or credit card payment 

Your session must be paid in full within 24 hours of booking or your spot may go to someone else.

Delaney | Hastings Event Photography | I Hope You Dance

On June 13th in Hastings, this little dancer had her first dance recital and I was proud to be a part of it! She was so excited to wear her costume and even got to adorn some "sparkles" on her eyes. She was most excited about wearing lip gloss! Her and her Rain Academy Sprinkles dance mates did such a wonderful job, despite no one dancing at the dress rehearsal the night before! 

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.
Dance....I hope you dance.
