I haven’t traveled in…what seems like years. Many of you probably feel the same way. Covid-19 mandates, varying regulations from state to state, no travel outside of the country, etc. You get the picture. We all know it well. I remember the spring of 2020 being full of afternoon drives in the nearby countryside in Ottertail County. My husband and I just needed to get OUT. We watched the seasons change from the interior of our minivan. We didn’t go far. Nobody could. Yes, this summer is going to be SO different, and I can’t wait to get on the road!
Yet, where should I go?
I’ve spent many months, through much of our experience with Covid-19 life, developing the relaunch of my photography business. Discover Larson Photography is taking on a whole new look (check out my NEW home page here!!). I’ve fallen in love with wedding photography, and (YIPEE) I can’t wait to get our brand new camera equipment!! I can’t wait to get that beautiful new Canon R6 in the mail!
I can only continue to plan. And, I’m planning BIG, ambitious things!
In just days, we get to meet our new and last baby boy. Our C-section is scheduled for Friday, June 4 here in Fergus Falls. We have a HUGE life event happening this next week, and photography has had to take a back seat to the rest of our goings-on. We are THRILLED for the reason for it! Listen, it doesn’t mean that I don’t dream about photography. Actually, it doesn’t even mean that I’ve stopped learning all I can. As a result of Covid, I’ve soaked in SO much education this last year. I know more about SEO, personal branding, wedding timelines, and the mechanics of the new Canon R6 than I EVER have. Ultimately, I’m SUPER pumped to put it all to good use and can’t wait to get started!
Today, I finally get to announce my upcoming plan to explore! As I said at the beginning, I’m SO ready to travel. By the end of the summer, I will just have begun to investigate one of my most favorite places in the world: Minnesota.
“Only that far, huh?”
Hear me out. This fall, I plan to venture on a photography tour of some of my most FAVORITE cities in the state, and I want YOU to come with me! “But Sarah, you’re not a landscape photographer!”
You’re right. Really, I have no patience for it. Though, I always think it’s so lovely when others capture this planet better than I do.
No, this isn’t about landscape photography (though, I will CERTAINLY be indulging in those amazing, epic 35mm images of the towns I visit). This is a photography tour that will include 1) the beautiful cities I’ve grown to love, 2) a beautiful woman in every place, and 3) highlights of interesting venues and floral shops that I can’t WAIT to explore!
And YOU get to be a part of it! Below are listed the 12 locations I am SUPER stoked to visit. I’m going to take you with me via my blog and introduce you to people, places and gorgeous things. Stay tuned for a model call. Watch carefully through the summer for updates. Join me on my journey to find beautiful shooting locations and locally-owned businesses that deserve to recognized.
