New Year, New Name | Becky Moen Photography

Over the last year and a half there have been a lot of changes, beginning with a move across country from Northern California to Minneapolis, Minnesota. Now that things have started to settle down I have a chance to focus on my love of photography.

A lot of great things have happened over the last year, with the best one happening this last November when I married my best friend. As I get started on this new journey I made the simple yet difficult decision to change my business name from Becka Lynn Photography to Becky Moen Photography. Since the time I first started my business, it has always been a dream to use my own name. Circumstances prevented that from happening at that time so since I need to rebuild my name from the ground up here in Minnesota I see the perfect opportunity to make the switch.

Its still going to take some time to get everything all set up so please keep an eye out for the new website. In the mean time I plan to update my blog regularly. Winter is in full swing around here. Everything is covered in snow as we got another 4 inches this morning. Luckily the cold has given us a break for the time being.

Visiting Minnehaha Falls | Minneapolis, MN {Becka Lynn Photography}

A couple of weeks ago I took a short winter trip to Minnesota. One more season and I will have experienced them all. When I planned my visit this time around I had expected to experience the extreme cold that my dear friends talk about but instead Mother Nature had other plans this year and it was unusually warm. It was however 0 degrees when I arrived which to my surprise I was warm enough in all the layers this Cali girl could put together. Despite Accuweather saying no snow, I woke up to the lovely white stuff falling Monday morning. This California girl has never really seen snow fall so you can imagine my excitement. Mother Nature delivered just in time 😉

On my final day in town I took a trip down to see the frozen Minnehaha Falls. Probably one of the coolest frozen acts of nature I have ever seen in my life.

Surprisingly my model for the afternoon was a bit colder than I was. I love her brightly colored coat and scarf with the frozen falls in the background.

I couldn’t visit the falls without getting a photo of myself so here you go. I can’t wait to go back again once it warms up.
