I met Paityn when she was just a few days old – not only was it one of my very first newborn sessions as JaneCane Photography, but it was also the session that convinced me my heart was in lifestyle sessions. I saw the way Shannon was so relaxed in her home with that brand new baby girl, the gorgeous nursery she had put so much thought + love into and the simplicity of beauty that being together in a house made home could capture.
A little while later, Shannon would adventure to Colorado with her “little bear” and they would create a new life in the mountains together. I have had the joy of watching from afar as they have explored and wandered through the Midwest, keeping in contact with them and always saying “let’s do a session next time you are home!”
So when the email came and we both had the time – it was an easy YES. Shannon drove to Duluth to meet me at Park Point and I got to hang with these awesome ladies as they played and laughed along the shores of Lake Superior. Paityn is now 3 (how does that happen so fast?) and she is fiercely independent. She loves suckers, giraffes and her Momma Bear.
Thanks for taking the time to catch up S + P! xo
I met this incredible family years ago through the love of Soccer, Kelly being my Dad’s assistant coach at UMD for the Women’s Soccer Team. Over the years I have watched them grow (literally – hello babies!) and have witnessed the importance of family between these women. They cheer each other on around the globe through triumphs + success + everything in between. I have seen them stare the tough stuff right in the face and tackle it together, as a team. It is rare to have them all together, so it was extra special that they all came home to Mom’s house and got to hang out for a few days in the sunshine (and a crazy storm – but that’s another story all together)
It may be loud and a little chaotic when everyone is one place, but the love is overflowing and the laughter never-ending. Thank You Grgas-Wheeler Family for allowing me to capture all the silly, joyful, awesomeness of your family and the strong women that are raising some pretty amazing humans.
This past May I got to hang with these three fabulous ladies – Daisy, Elle + Lily – for a marketing Senior Session photo shoot. They all attend East High School and will be Seniors this year (Hooray Class of 2017!) I have been offering grad photos since 2012, each year getting to meet new, awesome clients who are making waves + changing the world around them. It’s such a fun time in their life and an honor for me to capture this life milestone for them.
Every Senior Session with JaneCane Photography involves a short time in my Downtown studio, where we do some traditional photos against a white wall backdrop – Grandma will love them – then we head outside and I get you moving, grooving + belly laughing at my horribly bad jokes and dance moves. I promise to make your session laid back + even (dare I say) a little fun. I encourage comfortable outfits that express your style, with communication beforehand about outfits, locations and any questions you might have. This is your session, so it should reflect your personality!

A huge Thank You to Daisy, Elle + Lily for volunteering their time to help me out and show off some of their gorgeous images!
It all started at Marshall High School so many years ago when two young kids awkwardly went on a first date. The rest, they say, is history. And in Willie + Katie’s story – it really is. Years would pass and these two were pretty much inseparable – a love for the ages – bringing years of family + friends + loved ones together, all who anxiously were awaiting to celebrate this day with them. Willie + Katie were married at Holy Rosary, the same church her parent’s said “I Do” years ago – making the ceremony that much more special. A place where both families have prayed and worshiped over the years, not knowing their stories would come together here. The day was perfect from start to finish, filled with buckets of love and laughter and so many sweet stories of this pair. Everyone could agree, this was a long time in the making. They would toast with their loved ones in the Gymnasium of Marshall High School, where their relationship started and dance the night away as husband and wife. A true love story for the books. Willie + Katie, I wish you nothing but happiness, love + beautiful memories together as you adventure through life as a Mr & Mrs. Thank You for choosing me to capture this amazing moment in your story together.
