cate | minnesota high school senior photographer

© Tina Vega Photography

I look at the image above and wonder what happened to our babies. Cate and my youngest are now  S E N I O R S.

I have watched Cate grow up. Literally. Our families have logged many hours together over the years camping, playing Rock Band, watching fireworks, and carving pumpkins. There have been murder mystery parties, Game Nights, Movie Nights, and days at the pool.

As you can see, Cate is now a beautiful young woman.

Which puts a big lump in my throat, especially after going through old photos. Cate is bright, determined, and talented.

She is heavily involved with 4H, along with her partner in crime below.

It seemed only fitting to capture images somewhere near and dear to them both.

at grandma’s house | everyday family session

© Tina Vega Photography

Here’s a peek at a session I photographed a couple of years ago but never posted. My friend Niecie was working on a special gift for her daughter (a very cool project I will feature in a later post) that involved photographing her grandchildren. In addition to capturing photos for the project, Niecie wanted images that would serve as reminders of their time together.

Knowing the day would come when her grandchildren would outgrow sleepovers, toys, and make-believe.

So they showed me some of the things liked to do at Grandma’s house, “shopping” being one of them.:D

© Tina Vega Photography

The shoes, wigs, and hats. All-of-the-jewelry. Creative Memories cash. Silliness and smiles.

Making memories together, this is grandmothering at it’s best.

my new instagram account & virtual auction space

© Tina Vega Photography

I make things. I find things. I do things. I have things.

© Tina Vega Photography

And now I will be selling these things on Instagram!!! Here’s how the auctioning will work:

1) An image/description will be posted with a minimum starting bid.

2) Item will remain open to bidding for three days.

3) If shipping is included, that will be posted in the description otherwise the item will need to be paid for/picked up within three days. [I am willing to meet people I know for the exchange if a trip to Rosemount presents a challenge.]

4) Auction items will be featured under #shoptinavsstuff – search the hashtag while on IG to quickly locate items.

5) Auction items will only be featured on my business Instagram account so be sure to follow me there to stay in the loop!

My business IG account is under the name “tinavegaphotography” and my private account is “tinavega” – if you have any questions, let me know.

back in the workin’ groove

© Tina Vega Photography

My summer calendar is filling quickly with senior and family sessions. Not to mention another wedding… even though I swore last year’s wedding would be THE official last.

© Tina Vega Photography

But when I received the most recent wedding inquiry, I knew it was meant to be. And after I share the story with you later this summer, you too will know why.

© Tina Vega Photography

That being said, I still have room for 2-3 more sessions in July and the same for August. If you’re interested in getting something on the summer calendar before it fills, let me know! (As I mentioned earlier this week on FB, there’s still time to take advantage of my high school senior session special which expires 6/30/2018.) Just click on the “Contact” button above and fill out the requested information.  [If you are reading this from a mobile device, just contact me by email (tina at tinavegaphotography dot com) to reserve a spot.]

the foxes in the vineyard will not steal my joy

© Tina Vega Photography

One of my favorite songs right now.

LYRICS:

I put all my hope in the truth of Your promise
and I steady my heart on the ground of Your goodness
When I’m bowed down with sorrow I will lift up Your name
and the foxes in the vineyard will not steal my joy

because You are good to me, good to me

I lift my eyes to the hills where my help is found
Your voice fills the night–raise my head up and hear the sound
Though fires burn all around me I will praise You, my God
and the foxes in the vineyard will not steal my joy

because You are good to me, good to me

Your goodness and mercy shall follow me
all my life
I will trust in Your promise
