minnerphotography Life and then death is not a choice. Your ending is.
This week I had a meeting in Kentucky and decided to explore an old sanatorium. I don't typically do this alone but this was my only option. Its weird because years ago this would have scared me to death to do this alone. Im not in that same place anymore. The dark doesn't scare me. Being alone doesn't scare me. I know its only temporary.
In 1907 the Louisville Anti-Tuberculosis Association was created, an organization of local health officials, doctors, and some well-intentioned philanthropists interested in limiting the global epidemic’s impact on their city. The following year they organized the first tuberculosis hospital in Kentucky. It closed in 1971.

minnerphotography Mixing my love of urban settings, portraits and hockey! @stlouisblues are in Round 2 so I'm posting a few shoots I've done with players. Everyone I've ever met within the Blues organization, from families to players to office staff to arena workers, they are an amazing organization. Proud to be a fan and bleed blue.
Steve Ott has been one of my favorite hockey players a long time. He is ferocious on the ice and if he isn't on your team you most likely despise him. Meeting him off the ice you realize that emotion is left there. He is an unbelievably nice guy and has an amazing family. I hope he and @erica_ott will be staying around St Louis a lot longer! Look forward to shooting the Otts again soon!

This is our captain, David Backes, at a shoot I did for he and his wife @kelbackes for their organization @athletesforanimals Such an amazing organization and family. They have an incredible love for animals, our community and their family. A4A recently won $10,000 for Brackets for Good! Look forward to working again with this awesome family! Here is hoping to see them staying in St Louis with another new contract soon! Let's go Blues!

This is the Brodziak family back when they were only 4! I had the privilege of doing this shoot last fall as Nicole and Kyle announced their third was on the way. What a great family and Kyle is one of the hardest workers on the Blues! He never quits!
Let's go Blues and beat Dallas! As a fan I really hope to see this family staying in St Louis for next season!

minnerphotography It was so dark in this room we could barely see. I had to use a flashlight just to get my camera to focus. After a very long camera exposure the small amount of light begin to shine in the room casting a brightness in the darkness.
This series of my photos isn't meant to disrespect death or any of you that have recently lost a loved one. This is an abandoned funeral home in Alabama that someone told us about. To me this is just added notion that with my belief, we don't truly stay in the grave.

minnerphotography Somewhere in Alabama a funeral home sits abandoned. 30 plus caskets and a '77 Cadillac allows nature to take back over. 4w

There were about 30 caskets in the two buildings. Some of them very upscale and a few old red pine box caskets. No matter, rich or poor, we all die.

Now that Im 43, I'm far from old, but I'm starting to see grandparents get sick and die and even my parents get sick and deal with cancer. Death is not something any of us can avoid. It is something that we will meet someday. We should never fear it.

minnerphotography Walk to the Light
This next series of my photos isn't meant to disrespect death or any of you that have recently lost a loved one. This is an abandoned funeral home in Alabama that someone told us about. To me this is just added notion that with my belief, we don't truly stay in the grave. Years ago I watched my baby son be lowered into a casket smaller than these in the images. I don't think Im over it, I mean I don't think anyone is ever fully over that. But I doing relief that even though he was placed in one of these, I will see him again some day. The stairs to me represented our walk to The Light.

minnerphotography I remember the first time someone asked me to shoot their Sr Photos. I instantly said NO WAY. It's now my favorite portrait session to do. Capturing memories of an essential time in someone's life and being unique with it. Book yours today for as little as $350 and you keep the files to print! 1mon

minnerphotography Break from the decay and going to feature 3 recent Sr Photos I've done. I know these don't get near the likes from followers that my fine art does but this is becoming a passion of mine. I truly love doing portrait photography. Helping people be comfortable in front of the camera, come alive and capture their memories makes for a great day. If you are in the St Louis area and are a Junior in high school it's time to start booking your Sr photo sessions ASAP! As little as $350 gets your session going in an urban or garden setting and you keep all the files to print for no extra charge! 1mon
