Family Clothing Suggestions | Minnesota Family Photos What to Wear Guide

We’ve been blessed with an extremely mild winter and warm temperatures as of late.  Even so, I have spring fever like crazy right now!  This set makes use of the number one suggestion I give my clients when they are making clothing decisions for their family session.  Don’t be matchy matchy.  Instead, pick two of your favorite colors to build upon.  Here we pulled pinks and blues as the main colors.  It really gives the family that fabulous cohesive look!

My favorite product | Canvas Gallery Wraps are on sale!

 Canvas gallery wraps are my absolute most favorite product that I carry.  They are gorgeous, high quality and showcase your artwork perfectly!  Your image is printed on fine art canvas and wrapped around a 1.5 inch stretcher frame, finished with black mat board and come ready-to-hang.  They even have wall protecting bumpers on the rear bottom corners to keep your walls scratch free!

My Life Through My Iphone | January

I have set a goal to try to take a photo every day using my iPhone 4S.  The phone literally never leaves my side so I figured it would be a great way to capture and document my everyday life.  I post frequently to Instagram.  You can follow me @nmathison.  I have also started using the Photo 365 app so I have some place to post each day.  So what have I been up to this past month?

New Years toast.  iPhoneography workshop.  James edit.  Pop can in camera+.  JM Alumni night.  Brian looking dapper in his sweater vest.  Ryan is a champion in the Cresco tourney.  Newborn session.  Editing.  Toast to Bob Cummings.  Slots.  Spotty moved his bed to the middle of the living room.  Brian with his childhood friends (at a hockey game!).  Three Rockets were runner up in the Stewie tourney.  Spotty loves sun.  Sunset from Gonda 14.  Ryan gets his 100th win!  Support Rochester Better Chance.  Window frost.  Spotty finds more sun.  James all frosty after a 6AM run in temps below zero.  Eggs.  Snow!  City Market for lunch.  Wine-o.  Camera+ tutorial.  Ceiling fan.  Brian making use of his new personalized lasagna pan.  Sunshine on a cold day.  Plummer Building.  Favorite Apps for business.
