Kayla | Stewartville, MN Teen

Okay, so I am officially the world’s worst blogger!  It is already September and I think I only blogged one of my sessions this year 🙁  I am locking myself to my computer until I get caught up!

This is Kayla.  Her session has been posted on my facebook page and you have probably seen a few images of her on the blog.

For this session we hit downtown Stewartville!  Yes, there is a downtown…LOL!

Kayla was so fun to photograph!  She was literally up for anything that I asked her to do 🙂

I think I am in love with this blue wall!
And…..she looks like Jennifer Aniston here….
Did I mention she brought a killer wardrobe with her?!!!!

Kayla likes to laugh a lot!  Mostly at me when I am being goofy 🙂She is totally not afraid to be herself. When we finished downtown, we headed over to Florence Park.Please walk 100 feet into the weeds, now stand in them, no wait….sit in them 🙂  I may ask my subjects to do odd things from time to time.Hello!  Gorgeous girl next door 🙂

 Yes, she is simply stunning.

And I really couldn’t decide which version I liked better so here she is in color and black & white.
 I always like to end the session with an awesome silhouette!  Kayla may have jumped in the air 30 times!

Thanks for the great session Kayla!  I simply adore the images we captured!!!!

Tie it Teal – Awareness About Ovarian Cancer | Stewartville Minnesota Sports Photographer

Stewartville Boys Varsity Cross Country Team Supports the Tie it Teal Campaign

Nothing can make you more proud as a parent than seeing your child grow up to be compassionate and kind.   Well, the boys on the varsity cross country team in Stewartville are just that.  They received teal laces from their coaches to support the Tie it Teal campaign for the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance (MOCA).  They didn’t skip a beat.  They swapped out their cool laces showing their unique personalities for these matching teal laces supporting an important cause.  They were sporting them at their cross country race the very next day.  Why?  Because they have mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts and girlfriends!

Tie it Teal is MOCA’s new campaign to show support for those affected by Ovarian Cancer and bring awareness of the symptoms of this disease.  Did you know that Ovarian Cancer is the deadliest of all gynecologic cancers and there is no reliable screening test?!!  Nearly 400 women from Minnesota and 15,000 women nationally will die from Ovarian Cancer this year alone.

As with any form of Cancer, early detection is key.  If you have the following symptoms persistently for three weeks or more, please take action:

  • Bloating
  • Pelvic or Abdominal Pain
  • Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly
  • Urinary symptoms (urgency or frequency)


September marks Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and MOCA is encouraging people to wear the teal laces to spread awareness!!!  You can get involved by visiting their website at www.tieitteal.org.  You can also learn more about Ovarian Cancer by visiting the MN Ovarian Cancer Alliance website at http://mnovarian.org/.
