Magic in Motion

Photo Oct 22, 1 06 33 PMWhen it’s this close to Halloween, and the full on lush of fall has spread into the city, there is an air of change that is as exciting as it is scary. Teaming up with self proclaimed witchy woman, photographer, Katie Essick in St. Paul’s Cathedral Hill neighborhood we captured some magic one bright autumn morning. It was a stunning outcome as Madeleine stomped around in the crisp air with hints of warmth from the fleeting sun. Too cool for winter, too hot for summer. Only fall can feel this way.

In it’s first life it …….. In it’s second life, it was rocked out by Jen at her high school prom……. it’s third revival was captured by photographer Katie Essick.

Treasure | Photo series by Katie Essick

L'avenir | Katie Essick | Laura Hess

The banks of the Misssissippi in St. Paul are calm. The sand is warm on your toes. It’s perfect mid week break and there is no one around except the occasional passer by. You just discovered this little piece of heaven smack dab in the middle of the city, so quiet and serene. It will be your new go-to spot this summer when you need to slow down and rejuvenate your spirit. Following your wandering heart has paid off again. Exploring your own city, you have found a treasure.

Spring on the banks of the Mississippi river in St. Paul. Brisk air is cut by the warmth of the sun just beginning to warm the skin and the sand under her feet. Comfortably rocking a fringed chain statement necklace, in true bohemian fashion. The suns power and warmth are absorbed by the metal, radiating beauty and energy as she moves with with breeze.

We just can’t even. Teaming up with these two girls was just what the doctor ordered. We had a chance to work with photographer Katie Essick in late summer months with the beautiful Taylor. Her depth, mood and style are such a breath of fresh air.
