Hey! I'm Abby: a Minneapolis girl through and through. I'm a few days shy of 21 and I feel like every year is a new chance to figure life out. This past year, I really dug deep into photography and I can absolutely say that it's become a passion of mine. It's something that gets me out of bed in the morning, and it keeps me up at night. It's where I receive the bulk of my income and what I love spending my time on. The human connections and opportunities that come from photography make my heart swell. I still face challenges in photography, but the journey is so worth it - and that's what matters.
This photo was taken via my remote timer in the Jakeeno's parking lot.
Early on Mother's Day, I stopped by the Jugavich household household to catch a glimpse of what mother's day looked like for their family. It was a morning full of laughs, coffee, temporary tattoos, and jammies. So perfect!

This Sunday, April 24th 2016, marked the last day of Blue Ox Coffee Co. being on the corner of 38th Chicago (insert a million sad face emojis). I loved Blue Ox. It was my weekly coffee spot. In high school I even wrote a paper about Blue Ox. I can't wait for them to open again in a new location, but I will deeply miss their presence on 38th and Chicago.
While walking today I noticed an adorable little house in the backyard of a Powderhorn home. I knocked on the door and met Molly, a poet. She's building this space as an extension of her Poetry Mobile project, which encourages people to write, read, receive, and give poems. I can't wait to go back when the house is finished to participate in this poetry project. It's so close to completion!
While many families celebrated Easter in all forms today, children at the Story Church had a little dance party to celebrate Jesus' resurrection! The Story Church is located in the Powderhorn neighborhood and meets at 3104 16th avenue on Sundays.
I love dropping by at the Quie family's Powderhorn home near the Tiny Diner. Tanner is always up to fun projects in his garage and they have the cutest baby girl. Today he was refinishing his guitar body with a newly acquired spindle sander.
Powderhorn Park on a balmy spring day is a great place to play at, but it can also be the perfect spot for plopping down with pen and paper and a head full of ideas. Thanks, Heather, for the inspiration!
I'm drawn to anything sparkly and colorful, so when I saw that local Powderhorn neighbor, Nickey, tricked out her fence with beaded necklaces, I had to snap a photo. The best part about these necklaces is that they came straight from New Orleans!
Dave and Jen (and the beagle, Olly) pick up their twin daughters, Lily and Abby. The twins had an overnight with their friend and fellow Powderhornite, Ruby, daughter of Rebecca (in background) and Carrie.
Dave has a blog about life with the twins at 365daysoftwins.com.
