Laura Monahan comes from an artistic family, and spent her youth practicing sculpture, oil painting, pottery, and what turned out to be her ultimate passion: photography. Her ability to preserve candid moments has left an indelible impression?she has a published portfolio on three continents and product lines appearing at national retailers such as Hallmark and JCPenney. Laura?s photo shoots always take place outdoors, capturing newborns, older kids, and families in soft, natural lighting and poses that never appear unnatural. Her settings span the country from San Diego?s foamy beaches to Denver?s red-rock sunsets and into the Midwest?s autumn leaves, and she holds mom's night out events all over the country, including in Honolulu, San Diego, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Denver.

If you want to bowl, catch a comedian, dance, and shop in one night, you'd normally have to run from one place to another. But Pinstripes Edina has all those experiences ready for guests to enjoy at Pop-Up Minneapolis, a one-night shopping and entertainment event. There, partygoers can mingle with vendors from Fashionologie, InVision, and The Goddess of Glass, perusing all their stylish wares while sipping on craft cocktails. A new area comedian hits the stage every 15 minutes and the dancing gets serious when DJ David B starts spinning everything from pop hits to polka tunes making their comebacks. The lively evening, which is sponsored by a host of local businesses including Mpls.St.Paul Magazine, is hosted by radio personality Jason Nagel.
