    Ok, I emailed Christa Butler and here is the scoop:

    She lives in Rochester and would be willing to waive the traveling fee to come up to the cities to do a shoot. She recommended maybe reserving a nice hotel room, and if we could get a couple of girls, she would do our shoots in 1-2 hour sessions....
    What do you guys think? If we could get a couple of girls, I bet the room would only cost about 25.00 per person...
    She also mentioned that the earliest she is available is mid-July, which is perfect for me- maybe drop a couple of lbs. by then. :)

    Please let me know if you are interested at all so I can book with her!

      Christa just emailed me and mentioned that she would waive the traveling fees, and she would pay for the hotel room if we could get a total of 4 girls to book the session (she is researching hotels to find a classy hotel).... I am in! Anybody else interested in boudior photos near Minneapolis?? It's a great deal!!

          Hi, Maggie's mom here. I know she is interested in the IDEA of b-pictures, but I don't know if she can do it this summer or not. She and Tadd are up on the North Shore this weekend, so I will talk to her when they get back. For now, I am once again gathering information. Have you seen any of this photog's work? Is the quote per person or is it to be divided b/w the number of girls you have? Where do you get ideas on "outfits"?
          You know, maybe the Nicolet Island Inn would be a cool place to do it. Or maybe someone knows an artist who lives in the artist lofts downtown St. Paul.
          Well, thanks for allowing my research. I appreciate it.

          PS: Ann, how is the new house doing? I haven't seen you at the mall yet...
          next Saturday we are having Macy's national makeup artist come to do consultations and makeup. You should make an appointment for your wedding look. I hear she is quite a character and extremely talented. It might be kind of fun and I would love to meet you in person.??

          For the dance, at the reception, Maggie wore her crinoline and a lovely lace top. Looks like Tadd likes it!

            Great.. I hope she wants to!! The above quotes are for a single person. I am thinking about doing the 250.00 with the 100.00 photo credits. I really hope this works out since she is willing to pay for the room and traveling fees!! If it works for her later maybe this fall, I will still do it. I am not getting married until January.
            She has a website Christa Butler,, and Leigh Miller recommended her!
