The last couple of months, I have been super busy with a lot of different projects. One of my favorite works of collaboration is the new website for Urban Bean Coffee in Minneapolis. This is definitely my favorite coffee spot in town, and I am very excited to be asked to photograph the new content for their new website. In addition, I am SO excited for the new I ♥ MPLS blog, which is part of the new UB site. This has been a great opportunity for me to just do my thing, have some creative freedom and photograph some sweet environmental portraits. For this first shoot, we headed back in the kitchen of Patisserie 46 with chef John Kraus. Here are a few images from our time together, but I encourage you all to check out the full blog post + interview with John over at I ♥ MPLS.
