    NYE Portraits: Kenna, Raven, + Raegyn (the twins)

    LeanneKidPortraits-NYE2016-RheaPappas-04-2.jpgLeanne is one of my seasonal clients. Every milestone they reach, every year around the holidays, and their birthdays we photograph with a fun theme. It’s always great to get photos of your children at the 3 month, 6 month, 12 month, and birthday milestones. Additionally, it’s fun to get a family photograph with a great theme for the new year. LeanneKidPortraits-NYE2016-RheaPappas-10-4.jpgIt’s not only a pleasure to watch these amazing children grow up and be a part of their lives, but it also makes photographing them easy for my clients as we build a relationship and have some fun!leannekidportraits-nye2016-rheapappas-05-3In this set of images, it was another great experience as we experienced the twins playing and seeing confetti for the first time.

    My Photography Bootcamp Class at the Arboretum

    My Photo Bootcamp Class that I teach is almost at an end. The 2nd to last day we alway do an on location photoshoot at my students preferred location. This time we went to the Arboretum. It was remarkable. I am so lucky and thankful to get to go on adventures through my students and learn so much from them.

    This year has been good to me. On top of everything that happened before the summer, this fall and winter is shaping up to be very busy and fun as well.

    First, I was accepted into the Minnesota State Fair Fine Art Show. It is such an honor and I am very excited to be a part of it.

    Second, like last spring, I was chosen as one of the press winners for the fall Saint Paul Art Crawl with one of my Winter Beauty images, Mary Jane. The body of work will be printed large for the first time and in beautiful frames for the art crawl.

    Third, I got to meet with Doug Beasley this week and oh my gosh, it was so GREAT! I loved talking with him and meeting with him because I admire his carrier. I really look up to him and think he is such a beautiful and phenomenal person.

    Fourth, Patti Paulson is curating a show in Robbinsdale and I’m feel so privileged and honored to be one of the artist she selected to be in her “Choice” Exhibition Show. I can’t believe the line-up that is going to be part of the show.

    Fifth, I’ve been so busy teaching. I’m working at IFP teaching like usual and love it as I always do. But I’m also teaching out of my studio and it’s picking up!  I have 5 independent students who I do personal lessons with and on top of that I am running my classes almost every quarter. It’s going so well.

    Sixth, I did and underwater album shoot with a band called Lingua Luna. Their album is going to release October 8th during the Art Crawl Weekend. Check them out: Look for the new album photos below here and coming out soon!

    Seventh, I have found the perfect intern and her name is Madeline Crew. She is an up and coming photographer from CVA and more than her photo awesomeness, she and I get along so well, it is creepy. I feel that other than working together, we’ll be good friends for a very long time and that’s where I want to be.

    Anyways, this 2o11 I am looking to keep working in Minnesota, but I am also branching out and might have some really big, cool, news coming up here soon. So, hopefully next time I have good news, it wont be as long to get back to all of you. I hope all of you are doing well and look forward to seeing you sometime in the near future!

    Looking for Intern

    Rhea Pappas is looking for an intern

    What I need help with: Editing, shooting errands, picking up and dropping off film and orders, on location shooting, and answering emails.

    Looking for: Student or beginning photographer who wants to learn how to run photo business, use photo shop, edit, and work as a photographer. I am also ok if you are a high school student or need to use this to get your college degree. Another thing I am ok with is working with people that like my work and would like to learn more about it.

    Pay?: At this moment I do not make enough money to pay an intern outside of paid shooting gigs. When I get paid to shoot weddings or senior pictures and you come along, I always pay really well, about $100 for the shoot. Unless you are learning and not assisting, either way, lets talk if you’re interested.
