matt | minneapolis high school senior photographer

© Tina Vega Photography

I met Matt for the first time at his senior session a couple of weeks ago.  His momma (an IF:Gathering friend) reached out to me and we made plans to connect in Minneapolis.

Matt is a musician and wanted some of the session to reflect his passion for music.

I have been photographing Mellissa’s family through the years.

Mostly at the same location, a place rich in meaning and history for them.  I love this tradition.  Capturing certain shots year after year.

Watching their family grow.

Watching the kids grow.

This year Mellissa is sporting a couple of new tattoos, marking this brutal season in her own special way.  A true warrior in every sense of the word.

I can’t wait to look back on this season in photos, the “middle chapter” as I’m calling it – praying it is a short and rich one.  Thanks again for the fun morning!

Marci is an IF:Table friend and client with a vision.

Her dad is the third generation to own their family cabin. Many memories are wrapped up in this place and Marci wanted her family’s time there captured.

So I met Marci, her dad, in-laws, husband, and kids at their lakeside cabin on a perfect morning in July.

They shared stories of what cabin life looked like for the different generations.  And how things have changed over the years.

They also shared some of their favorite parts of cabin life with me:

After spending a good portion of time with the groom, I made my way up to the bride’s room to capture a few early shots.

Then it was time for the bride and groom to have a moment alone.

I love this part.
