  • Thorson Photo School: Basic Light

    This week we’re starting to talk about light, there is so much on this topic we could cover but to start with I’ll just give you a couple of basic tips and an exercise to practice.

  • Thorson Photo School: Background

    Since having a baby (Hold on did I mention I’ve had a baby? Only like a million times) I’ve had a lot of friends say things like “Oh you’re so lucky to have all these beautiful photos of Walt” and “I wish I could take beautiful photos of my baby too”. Well you’re in luck,…

  • Mexico

    A couple of weeks ago I was in Mexico for my sister-in-law’s wedding. We had the most wonderful time eating tacos, spending time with family and then eating more tacos! Here are some of the photos I took on my iPhone and next week I’ll share the photos from the wedding…which I took on my…

  • Christmas Party!

    About a week and a half ago we had the first Thorson Photography Christmas Party! We went to Smoque (cause we all love meat) and we ate way more than we should have, it was amazing. Below are some beautiful photos I took of the event on my iPhone.

  • Mine Is Yours – The Review

    So yesterday was my first time running Mine is Yours (a workshop type thing). I was nervous when the day started…I kept thinking to myself “I hope people turn up” and “if they do turn up maybe they’ll have a horrible time”. But despite my self doubt I just sucked it up, got on with…

  • LA Layover

    We finished our USA trip with a very long 12 hour layover in LA. This was on purpose so I could see one of my favourite people in the whole wide world…Sarah! We had a lovely time eating Mexican food ($2 tacos) and drinking margaritas. Sarah went to college in Minnesota with Caleb and I, we…

  • Minneapolis, MN

    The last place we visited on our USA trip was Minneapolis. This city has a very special place in our hearts as it’s where Caleb and I met and also where we spent the first two years of our marriage. We have so many amazing friends who live there and we love going back to visit…

  • Travail

    One of our newest traditions is whenever we visit Minneapolis we have to eat at Travail with our friends Dave, Jessica and Jeff. This time we did the eight course tasting menu, it pretty much blew my mind. Sorry to Jeff and Caleb who don’t feature in these photos, I was pretty distracted by the food.…

  • Coming Home

    I’m currently sitting in LAX with another four hours to go before my fifteen hour flight back to Australia begins…I’m pooped. Sitting here has given me a lot of time to think about sayings like “home is where the heart is”…it’s a nice thought. But right now all I can think about is my apartment…

  • Training Camp

    Anyone who knows me will tell you how much I love, love, love American Football! My team is the Minnesota Vikings and they win the Super Bowl almost every single year. Caleb and I went on a little date to the Vikings training camp while we were in Minnesota. If you are wondering what training…

  • House Snooping

    If you are anything like me you love to snoop around other people’s houses. It’s just so interesting to see how other people live! I feel like you get to know them just a little bit better, you find out what’s important to them and you get to see how they decorate. Seeing how people…

  • Washington DC

    Last week we visited Caleb’s brother Joel, his wife Mary and their four kids Asher, Anna, Jesse and Josie in Washington DC (well actually they live about an hour outside of the city in Northern Virginia). We visited lots of monuments like the ‘Big Stick’ and the ‘Giant Man in the Giant Chair’. Side note:…

  • New York, NY

    About a week and a half ago we were in New York city. It was my first visit to New York and I was blown away by how huge it was, actually at times I found it quite overwhelming. One of our main reasons for going to New York was to visit our good friend…

  • Lake Michigan

    While we were in Wisconsin we visited Lake Michigan. Have you ever been to one of the Great Lakes before? They are huge…like the ocean huge.

  • County Fair

    This week Caleb’s dad Larry took us to the County Fair, it was so fun! The highlight was definitely the demolition derby!  

  • Madison, WI

    On Saturday Caleb and I went on a wonderful date to Madison, WI. Caleb’s parents had a wedding to attend, so Caleb and I drove the hour to Madison and shopped, ate and went to the movies. Madison is a college town which means it’s pretty quiet in the summer time, perfect for a date.…

  • Watertown, WI

    Currently we are visting Caleb’s family in Watertown, WI. I love the buildings in this town!

  • Goodbye Canberra

    We are officially on holidays! For the next six weeks we will be in the USA…summertime. I’m blogging this from my iPhone whilst riding the transfer bus from the domestic to international terminal at Sydney airport, technology.

  • Our 8th Wedding Anniversary

    Yesterday was Caleb & I’s eighth wedding anniversary! We went to Sage for dinner, it was wonderful. I took a few snaps on my phone to share with you.

  • We never have photos.

    I’m probably like most other photographers out there, constantly taking photos of others and never having photos taken of myself. So I’ve made a mid year resolution, I’m going to take lots more photos of Caleb and I together (we won’t be this good looking for much longer). To achieve this goal I got a photo timer app for my…
