Updated! Grand Forks, ND northern lights

So I went out on Sunday night June 9th to get milky way shots.  I saw that there was going to be a new moon that night and wanted to have a try at it again.  I was by myself so I decided to hit the spot I was familiar with at Grand Forks Waterfowl Production area.  Its about 15 miles from the Air Force base and a decent distance from the city lights.  It was pitch black dark and I was riding out there thru patches of fog when I thought I saw lights out of my drivers side window.  I was shocked!  I went out for milky way shots and ended up getting the best northern light shots to date.  Anyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with astrophotography so this was a dream come true!!!  Here are a few pics and if you would like to see more of my astrophotography work please check out my page links here and here.


Hello! Thank you for visiting! I’m Melissa, a lifestyle family and maternity photographer servicing Charleston, SC and surrounding areas. To me a photo session is more than just smiling at the camera. I want to capture the personalities and playfulness of each member of your family. The way that your daughter grabs her daddy’s pinkie while walking. The way your son plays with your necklace when you hold him close. The way you and your husband giggle at each other when your child does that goofy toothless smile. Those are the timeless moments I want to capture! One day those memories will fade but the photos will carry on.
