For many in Saint Paul this weekend marked the first weekend of summer. For those of us who live in the collegiate world summer’s been here for about a month already. And summer came in with a bang. May was gone in a whirlwind of graduations, confirmation and weddings. If this weekend’s any indication, June will not sit around and play second fiddle. (Makes one a bit nervous for July and August). In an effort to remain sane, maintain some sort of balance, and enjoy the beauty of summer myself I’ll be “closed” for the next month. I’ll be catching up on sessions from May and June and responding to emails as they come in but won’t be doing any new shoots until after July 15th. If you want to get in for a session in the second half of summer (or in the fall) feel free to shoot me an email at meghuff @ gmail.com and we can schedule that at any time. So thank you to everyone who has made the first half of summer amazing, and to those of you wanting to get in yet this summer I’ll see you in July or August!
I can’t think of a better way to end the weekend than at a beautiful state park with a fun couple and an eager to help mother-of-the-bride. Alyssa and Taylor and Alyssa’s mom, Kris, met me at Minneopa State Park on Sunday evening just in time for some gorgeous evening light. Never having been to Minneopa before I was blown away by the beauty of the falls, and slightly disappointed that the stair pathway only went down to the river, without wrapping back around to the falls. Thankfully when asked how adventurous they were feeling everyone voted for taking the “not an official path” path that had been worn by other hikers along the creek. Now that might seem like no-big-deal to you, but when doing it in flip-flops they definitely get adventure points! I’m looking forward to seeing these two again in August for their wedding.
