I apologize in advance for what must be my longest blog post ever. ;) Growing up in Minnesota and having all of my family still there means we spend a lot of time back and forth throughout the year – mostly in the summer months. Last summer I made a few fun trips for Minnesota summer mini sessions. The location was a farm place just outside of my small hometown. IT WAS PERFECT! That barn.
Being asked to photograph another photographer’s family is a huge honor…and also one always filled with a lot of nervous energy. :) This past summer my good friend and photographer extraordinare Jen packed up her family and drove down to see me for a photo session and fun little getaway. I’m so thankful this profession has been able to connect me with some of my very best friends. Her kiddos are absolutely adorable (hello awesome outfits!) and were perfectly behaved! We know that’s sometimes not always the case with photographers’ children, or maybe that’s just my own. ;) The way her boys interacted with sweet Harper absolutely melted my heart, it was obvious how much they adored her. It’s pretty safe to assume that anyone messing with Miss Harper will have to go through her big brothers first.
Here are a ton of my favorites from their session. Too many faves.
Another throwback session from May of 2014. I absolutely loved photographing this family! I mean….HELLO…gorgeous! And some of the nicest people you’ll meet! Check out those freckles…have I mentioned how much I completely adore freckles?! I’m sure I have. ;) Urban sessions and families with older kids are always a welcome change of pace for me. These kiddos were so sweet to each other. :)
Thanks for choosing me as your family photographer!
Today’s blog post comes to you all the way from May 2014! Yikes!! Things got super busy last year and blogging kind of fell by the wayside…eek! Over the next few weeks I’m going to be blogging some sessions from 2014 and then continue on with blogging 2015 sessions in real-time. ;)
These two little people (and their mama) always put a smile on my face and make my heart happy – I just cannot say enough wonderful things about them. It has been such a pleasure watching them grow over the last couple years, and I know when I see their session on my calendar I’m always in for a treat!
The emails from their mama are always the best!
“Oh Sarah…you have done it again!
I just got the email that I wait for every year. I couldn’t click the link fast enough!! Then it happened…I am slowly melting because every picture is absolutely perfect. I was thinking to myself “I hope it just goes on forever” (the slideshow), then I thought “wait…there are a lot of pictures here”, then it turned to anger because I knew it would be up to me to narrow it down…then acceptance that I just have to buy them all :) (just like every year). LOL
These are amazing as always – thank you so much Sarah!! Can’t wait to get them ordered and displayed. :)”
Meet Taya. She’s full of smiles and wonderful expressions. This session was to celebrate her turning the big ONE and getting an updated family portrait. It truly seems like just yesterday she was sweetly sleeping through her newborn session. Time certainly flies! Her brothers are always so fun and silly. I loved the brotherly connections we captured during the session. Boys will be boys. ;)
