Photography session information, sharing and event photos and tips!
Make-Up Artist Betsey McKenzie of www.be-luminous.net
Neither of the above photos are retouched or edited in anyway.
Are you debating on whether or not you should investment in professional make-up application for your photo shoot? I hope this convinces you that it's a great investment...
I can't think of a time when a Make-Up artist was hired as part of a headshot photo shoot and my client wasn't really happy with the end result. Having a personal touch in the studio while feeling pampered and special is just a small perk of the service!

My 4 favorite lighting setups
Special thank you to Mike Bredon for being my lighting model. I really have a great time working with Mike! I just noticed how these images get a little less smiley as they go down, lol but I shot them in reverse order! Goes to show how goofy I get to work out some smiles! Thanks again Mike!
January 8th in the First avenue main room, sold out!
Here's some high res photos from the show! Unfortunately a series of events kept me from getting to see the first few matches... my doors were frozen shut and I couldn't get into my car. I made it for the last few matches and am sharing my favorite images here with you! Feel free to comment, tag and share the link with your friends, performers or wrestlers! Support your local indie artists and performers! Thank you to Arik Cannon and John Smith for the opportunity!
More when I have time! Stay tuned or check back! And get out there and support your indie pro wrestlers!
2016, The Year of Change. Saying goodbye to the Jax
LIndsay Lundeen, Wendy McCarthy's studio at the Jax
I wanted to document as much of the Jax as I can prior to the building closing its doors to the creation of art. I was welcomed by Wendy McCarty and was able to document her space after her 12 year residence in this studio. I was hoping to capture the calm and relaxing vibe of this space. Lindsay Lundeen is photographed in Wendy's grandmothers Kimono from the 1920s. Thank you Wendy for welcoming us to create in your space. I can't wait to see what you create with Lindsay!
Artist Wendy McCarty and Model Lindsay Lundeen
Lindsay Lundeen with artist Melanie Bethke's paintings
I also captured Melanie Bethke's showcase area in the studio. She wasn't in studio while we were shooting so I only captured her display area. I love her work and how she captures movement. These paintings are stunning in person. I can't wait to see what kind of display area she captures in her new studio! No website to link to her work... yet so stay tuned!
I'll be trying to capture more artists work and spaces prior to the permanent closing of the Jax artist building and sharing them with you!
Again here's to a bright and prosperous New Year!
Saint Paul based photographer offering Headshot and creative portraiture focusing on Commercial needs.
I worked with Elle Halls of Nouvelle Design Studio for my business profile picture (used for LinkedIn, email, website, business cards, etc.) and she was amazing! She really listened to what I wanted, and made me a part of the process, stopping many times throughout the shoot to show me how the photos were looking. What I thought was going to be a "business errand/chore" ended up being a lot of fun! I highly recommend using Elle for your photography project.
Excellent experience. Elle was able to coach out the "model" in me and provided many shots I can pick from. She went well above and beyond me expectations and the final product is excellent.
Working with Elle was wonderful! I was doing a fashion shoot and it was so fun! She's very nice, funny, and professional, the shoot went like that! She has a very keen eye and did wonderful work! Very happy with my photos. Thanks, Elle!
I love the photos of myself and my daughter. We were given excellent direction so we could get the best shots. I couldn't be happier with the results! I highly recommend booking a session for any type of photography you are looking for!
