favorite things

favorite things

1.  The Bruery Autumn Maple Ale.  Something new to try this fall!

2.  Mexican Chocolate Noosa.  Little bits of crunchy spice that leave a bit of a kick.  LOVE THIS FLAVOR!

3.  Sweater Clips.  I loooooooooooove cardigan sweaters and thought it might be fun to add a little vintage bling.  You’ll find a lovely assortment HERE on Etsy.

4.  Boo-terscotch M&Ms.  I found these at SuperTarget and am saving them for a rainy autumn day.

5.  Three-Quarter Sleeve Cardigan.  The sleeve length is the perfect coverage for this in-between time of year.

6.  The Cookies & Cups Cookbook by Shelly Jaronsky.  My most recent fave!  Click HERE for a peek at some of my favorite recipes from Shelly’s website (the cookbook is filled with a zillion more).

Happy Friday!!!

favorite things {college edition}

favorite things

1.  Rapid Ramen Noodle Cooker.  Because if your kid is anything like mine, there WILL be ramen noodles.

2.  Shake-n-Wake Silent Vibrating Alarm Clock.  If your soon-to-be-college-student hasn’t yet mastered the art of waking to an alarm clock, this could be a lifesaver.

3.  Magnetic Strip Bulletin Board.  Hangs easily with 3M Command Strips and is great for hanging photos of family and friends.

4.  Scotchgard Fabric Spray.  These days, kids are often toting Chromebooks, iPads, or laptop computers across campus.  Spraying their backpack with this durable water repellent offers some measure of protection from the elements.

5.  Chip Clips.  Because if your kid is anything like mine, there WILL be chips.

6. Bamboo Bunk Bed Shelf from Bed, Bath & Beyond.  A handy shelf for your alarm clock, glasses, or anything else you might need within arm’s reach.  Holds up to 25 pounds.

Happy Friday!!!

hopped up on peanuts | minnesota family photographer

© Tina Vega Photography© Tina Vega Photography© Tina Vega Photography© Tina Vega Photography

When I first visited this location with my husband, we approached by at least a dozen chipmunks.  I thought I would make the most of it during Crystal’s family session by arming her girls with peanuts so we could befriend the tiny critters by luring them to peanut piles.

The girls were obviously excited about the idea.  The chipmunks, on the other hand, were not.

It was probably for the best because the girls really liked eating peanuts so much more than making little piles with them.

old and new | minnesota family photographer

© Tina Vega Photography© Tina Vega Photography© Tina Vega Photography© Tina Vega Photography

I photograph this family every year at their family farm (click HERE to see the very first session that took place back in 2009).  Despite the familiarity, there is always something new – abandoned vehicles, a tree fort, garden, scarecrows, an vintage tractor.

There are shots that have become tradition, spots that we use every time – the barn, silo, and driveway.

I love it all, the old and the new.  Here are several more of my favorites from our time together:
