mitchell | minnesota high school senior photographer

Diane (Mitchell’s mom) and I have been in bible study together for years, our boys (Mitchell and Lorenzo) were friends as preschoolers. It’s hard to believe they are both high school seniors now! I met Mitchell and his family at Lebanon Hills a few weeks ago. Diane was hoping for a couple of quick family shots before moving on to Mitchell’s senior photos, especially fun with a new baby in the mix.

Mitchell keeps himself busy with track & field, lacrosse, and hockey. And with it being his senior year, has college on the radar.

an extended family session at the arboretum | minnesota family photographer

I met Donlen, her family & parents at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum a few weeks ago. I first met Donlen back in 2001 when I was introduced to Creative Memories at a party in her home. Seeing her now much older boys really hit home – time passes in the blink of an eye!

It was nice seeing Donlen’s mom again and meeting her dad for the first time. They just celebrated 50 years of marriage! Beautiful…

The Annual-Not-So-Annual Pub Crawl began several years ago as date night with my husband.

t&t

In 2016 we added a couple of friends to the mix.

t&t+2

And in 2017, a couple more…

t&t+4

This year, we turned it into an event complete with swag bags and name tags w/safety lights!

t&t+10

Our Annual-Not-So-Annual Pub Crawl is a fun way to connect with others while bringing business to local bars and restaurants. It was nearly a perfect 10k that included Death By Chocolate (Rudy’s Redeye Grill), Margaritas (Las Tortillas), Italian Cheese Bread/Cheese Fries (T.O.P.S. Restaurant & Bar), killer Colorado Bulldogs (Celt’s Pub) & more!

2018 Annual-Not-So-Annual Pub Crawl

Not to mention loads of laughter. Another one crossed off the Autumn Bucket List.:)

dawson | minnesota high school senior photographer

© Tina Vega Photography

Dawson is another high school senior with ties to my son. Dawson, Lorenzo, and Nick were close friends in elementary school. When Dawson moved to Iowa in 2009 the boys ended up losing touch with each other.

Then Dawson moved back to Minnesota and his momma and I reconnected. The boys attend different schools and are no longer friends but the sweet memories linger.

© Tina Vega Photography

Dawson is now a young man with thoughts of attending Iowa State University next year.

He has grown so much I doubt I would have even recognized him on the street!

We met for senior photos at the Mill City Ruins a few weeks ago and talked about the past, present, and future.
