If you’ve been following me for any stretch of time, you know I have a lot of Saint Paul pride. When my friend Emily asked me to participate in a shoot for Visit Saint Paul, the official convention and visitors bureau of the city, I jumped at the opportunity. Em and I have partnered on projects for The Audacity of She, so I already love how talented she is!

This shoot was done at Red River Kitchen on the Mississippi River. This location has my heart and was also the location of my first professional photo shoot for my website! The restaurant is located in City House, a restored grain elevator. It has the coolest architecture and phenomenal views of the Mississippi River, the High Bridge, and Downtown St. Paul.

I guess now I can call myself a cover girl?? Ha! Here’s the final product.
