If you're a Minnesotan, you are savoring every one of these warm fall days before the snow flies! Every day I tell my kids, "Go outside! Today is the LAST, NICE day!" At this point, they are practically rolling their eyes, "Mom, you keep saying that but there's always another nice day!?" Thank goodness because I'm loving the opportunities to photograph outdoors, and meet amazing families, like these:
18 months old with an amazing head of golden brown curls, glowing personality, and the cutest smile ever, she was almost too much for the camera to handle. For Tony and Amanda, the effort to capture their family meant making sure their daughter had photos to look back on that reminded her how much her parents love her, and how fun life is! On a typical Saturday the three of them love to snuggle in bed, read books, play with their puppy Lucy, and dance in the kitchen while making breakfast. Lately, they have been enjoying the outdoors like going to pumpkin patches, orchards, the beach and discovering new parks. In fact, we found a picturesque little park near their new home in Eden Prairie perfect their family photos! Even though there were some tumbles and tears (and no desire to sit still, which as a parent myself I know is all very natural, and perfectly fine with me) it's when parents let go, laugh and continue enjoying their child that family pictures naturally rock. Way to go, N Family! Thank you for the honor of getting to know your family, and the opportunity to capture your love for each other.
