cameron | minnesota senior portrait photographer

Another session that has me feeling SO VERY OLD.  Cameron and my oldest were best buddies before we moved to Rosemount more than a decade ago.

When the boys were just beginning their school journey.  Cameron is now a young man facing his senior year of high school!

Soccer is his thing so we spent some time on the field.

Which just so happens to be the very same field my husband stood on graduation day!  I love ties like that. :)

Then we captured some action shots at a nearby park before heading over to West St. Paul for a few more portraits.

I hope you have a memorable senior year, Cameron, and wish you the best on the road ahead!

Love them all! But my favorite might just be the one of the boys and I love that you searched that out to include here :) Lol!!!! So Cute. Cam asked if he woke up with his hair like that and claims I sent him out in the world without brushing his hair, but I think it was just the wind. Can’t wait to see them all soon!

Haha! I love it, Lisa! :D

I met Jonah for the first time at his high school senior session a few weeks ago, his mom a dear IF:Gathering friend.  We spent the morning working in several areas near my home here in Rosemount.

Jonah is a percussionist and even brought a few props along. :D

and baby makes four | minnesota in-home newborn session

© Tina Vega Photography

It feels like I have been waiting F O R E V E R to share this news. Longtime blog friends will recognize this little family because I photograph them regularly (click HERE and HERE and HERE for a peek through the years).

You might also remember this fairytale date in addition to the last session that took place in their home several years ago.  Well… THEY HAD A BABY GIRL!

© Tina Vega Photography

And invited me over to meet her.

And OH-MY-GOODNESS she is beautiful.  Her big brother met me at the car when I arrived and told me that she was also very sweet “but not for sale.”

Have I mentioned how much I love this family?

© Tina Vega Photography

We captured a few shots with a couple of family heirlooms – the rocking horse was Mellissa’s as a child and the rocking chair belonged to her great grandfather!

We used the same gorgeous light to capture a few newborn portraits as well:

dave & rob got married | minnesota wedding photographer

© Tina Vega Photography© Tina Vega Photography

I met Dave and Rob though another client I had photographed early this year, someone I simply ADORED.  My favorite clients are those who understand that relationships are the heart of my work and are looking to capture the people that mean the most to them.

© Tina Vega Photography© Tina Vega Photography

And after meeting Dave and Rob myself, I knew their wedding would be nothing short of a joy to photograph.  Why?  Because despite all of the pretty handcrafted details, they asked me to keep people the focus.

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

Friends and family would be traveling from all over the world to celebrate freedom and love with this special couple.  Their favorite people.

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

And capturing them was extremely important to Dave and Rob.  I spent a better part of my day with the wedding party (comprised of their closest friends and family members) and heard many stories.

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

Stories of adventure and shared history.  Laughter.  Lots and lots of laughter.

© Tina Vega Photography

It was easy to see why Dave and Rob wanted this lovely group of people to be the focus of their wedding day.

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

Because these relationships are clearly the focus of their lives:D

© Tina Vega Photography

The day was made even more memorable by the fact that gay marriage was legalized in Minnesota two years ago to the day; Dave and Rob’s anniversary forever etched in history.  Free to love who they want to love…
