Hello! My name is Teagan Franz and I’m a local photographer out of Coon Rapids, Minnesota.
A little about my family first... I have been happily married to the Love of my Life, Mathew, since New Years Eve, 2014.. Time sure flies when you’re having fun! I gave birth to TWO incredible children, at ALMOST THE SAME TIME. 11:10 and 11:11 pm. That’s right, twins. Maximilian Donald Russell and MacKinley Quinn Marie. They were born on February 2, 2018 and I already have close to 2,000 pictures of them. I love them that much. My blog and site will forever be flooded with their adorable-ness, even though that’s not a real word. If anyone understands the ups and downs of motherhood and sleep deprivation, I totally do. The kids sleep great! I just want to accomplish everything while they are sleeping, so I can devote my full attention to them when they are awake during the day... I’ll figure out a balance eventually.
So onto the good stuff...
I have been in LOVE with photography since, well.. Forever! Whenever I have an opportunity to take a photo, I’m all over it. I am the ridiculous mom with the camera in one hand and cell phone camera in the other. I absolutely love taking photos (check out the photo of my stairway). Probably the only thing I love more than taking photos, is hanging up photos for everyone to see. Don’t we all love showing off how great we look in photos? I got really inspired not too long ago while scrolling through Facebook about starting up my own photography business. FOR REAL. Not the, “Oh, hey, I take pictures, can I take some pictures for you sometime?” I mean, doing something that I love, to support my children and my family. Don’t we all want that? I found this husband and wife photography team (Amy and Jordan Demos) and they literally changed my life within 2 hours of videos. I WANTED what they offered and I wanted it bad. So here I am. My twins are 5 months (as of July 2018) and they mean the world to me. I love watching them learn to smile, giggle, grab my hair (I need more ponytails!) and roll over (already!) and it occurred to me, I want other people to have as many wonderful photographed moments as I do. Because my kids already look way less like aliens than when the doctors trusted us enough to let us bring them home to meet our two dogs. I want to share my passion with you. I want you to be able to hang up pictures in your house and go, “DANG! I look SO good!” I don’t edit that. I create that in my photo shoots, with you. IN PERSON.
So, while you’re thinking about if it’s worth it to invest money in photos, you sure bet it is! You will be so happy you did and your kids (maybe one day) will love it too.
Message me for more information, and if I’ve taken your photos, make sure you leave a review. I’d love to read it!
