The golden hour, that magical time of about 2 hours before the sunsets. I know photographers that will only shoot this time of day, it is that special.
This family was super fun and a bright spot of my day. And even more special because they had won the session that I had donated for an auction fundraiser for the most amazing Montessori school. They had never had family portraits done, I was so excited to get these to them.
Since I have been doing this job, I have run into just the nicest, kindest people; this family was no exception!!
How fun to meet up with this sweet baby girl and her beautiful Mama again! We first met 6 months ago for a newborn lifestyle session. And to make life simple they have this gorgeous backyard to shoot in.
She was so mesmerized by the breeze blowing through the tress when we laid her on her back…how sweet. I think of all the fun days of playing in her yard that are yet to come.
Hope you enjoyed the beauty of this little girl as much as I did!
One of the many side benefits of this job, is that I get to see families grow…how absolutely amazing and magical to watch these little humans grow, and how new siblings add so much beauty to the family dynamic; like they were always meant to be here…they were just waiting for the perfect time to arrive.
I have had the pleasure of watching this little family grow, and now there are 2 precious little ones!
Okay, they are pretty much the cutest family!
And this sweet girl….a bit spunky, and curious and smart. I predict she will be a world changer.
So I feel like one of the things that makes Minnesotans so great is this crazy, unpredictable weather; blizzards and 18″ in the middle of April, ugh. It forces one to look at the bright side of things, otherwise how would we survive the insanity of this? So I thought how fitting to post this session, when things were right in the world.
And I am taking this opportunity to introduce this brand new space on my website, a place where I can be sharing my current sessions with you and be more active and engaged! However, I tend to like pictures more than words (shocking, I know) and my future posts will be short and sweet and filled more with images that I have been blessed to capture, and less words, because I am certainly not a writer.
Not only did I choose this session because this family is wonderful and the impossibly cute kids, but the man in this family also happens to be wickedly smart, and one of his many talents is web design (and his wife is pretty darn amazing too, as I am blessed to call them friends). I am so grateful the work he has done on my website, and a recent redesign that has allowed for this blog and a bunch of other super cool features that have officially blown my mind!
This session was so much fun, and these boys did amazing. I LOVE photographing families. I go into sessions with a bit of a plan in mind on what I want to capture and how, but I have learned to keep my expectations wide and open and my camera always ready when there are kids… because kids; beautiful, free spirited, curious kids. And then these 3 boys under the age of 5 did such an incredible job, and just plain adorable!! Mama looked so lovely and the weather was perfection; sun, warmth, and green stuff! I couldn’t ask for more. So sit back and enjoy some of my favorites from this session, and thanks for visiting!!
