lydia | minnesota high school senior portrait photographer

My Lydia,” is how I have come to know this beautiful young woman even before meeting her in real life.  I have been scrapbooking alongside her momma for a number of years and she has shared much about her daughter over time.

Her Lydia.

And Lydia is even lovelier in person, with a fun personality and infectious smile.

Yet every once in a while, I would catch a glimpse of something strong and serious.

Beautiful.  Here are several more images from our time together:

scarlet’s superhero team | minnesota lifestyle photographer

© Tina Vega Photography

I met Scarlet and her family in 2013 when photographing her brother for the Gold Hope Project and have since come to know her momma as a friend.

Jenny (Scarlet’s momma) had mentioned a photo session with Scarlet’s nurses when hospice care began roughly six months ago.  There has been a team of nurses in place for years, helping to provide Scarlet and her family with much-needed support.

A true team of superheros.

Please keep Scarlet and her family in your prayers over the coming weeks.

Beautiful pictures of Scarlet and her “Team” of nurses. You can tell how much they love Scarlet by the looks on their faces. You all are so blessed. I thank God for answering our prayers by providing Scarlet with the best support that can be had. Scarlet shows in her looks how much she loves her team. Love and compassion are the best “medicines” any person with chronic illnesses can recieve. I know that when people give that kind of medicine and attention to an ill person their recovery time is greatly reduced and carries on long after the treatment. We love Scarlet so deeply and we pass that same depth of love to “Scarlet’s Team”. Thank you Jenny and Tom for sharing with us. May God continue to bless Scarlet, her parents, her family and her support team for what they give us, hope and faith.

morning at the farm | minnesota family photographer

© Tina Vega Photography

I first met this young couple several years ago when I photographed their wedding.  Then bumped into them again last year while photographing their friends’ wedding.

© Tina Vega Photography© Tina Vega Photography

They are the sweetest couple with the most adorable children, I was ecstatic when Chelsea sent me a note expressing interest in a family photo session.  We met at Gale Woods Farm on a warm, sunny morning a few weeks ago.

Here is a peek at our time together:

And they were every bit as precious as I remember.

summering

summer 2016

Feeling the pressure of a million things and trying not to let even one steal my peace and joy.  It’s been a tough summer for some reason – could be the approaching transition, the financial and emotional weight of sending a child to college.  Then again, it could be the aches and pains of getting older (I’ve had a handful of strange symptoms with normal test results).  Whatever the reason, I feel like I have been swimming upstream all summer.

© Tina Vega Photography

Which has been draining!  So instead of continuing to push against the current, I began “floating” – giving myself permission to simply BE.  Doing my best to embrace the journey this season.

© Tina Vega Photography

Without focusing so much on the outcome.

© Tina Vega Photography

New territory for my goal-directed personality type.

© Tina Vega Photography

Hope you have been enjoying the long, warm days and “summering” it up yourself!

These days time feels especially precious.  It seems like only yesterday I photographed this family’s firstborn.  This sweet little thing is now TWO and a little girl in every sense of the word.

With the title of “Big Sister” to boot!

Because this sweet family just welcomed another little person into the world.
