This tree swing was a DIY labor of love and I am completely IN LOVE how it turned out! I’ve longed for a tree swing for years and finally figured out a way to make it happen – I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. These sessions are a great option for any age….toddlers, school age, sisters…even pregnant bellies! Babies are welcome with their mamas.
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.
Still catching up from summer of 2014! :) I met this next family several years ago and have been blessed to have photographed them both as newborns and several times over the years. I love the chance to get to know the families I work with and to be a part of their lives and memories for so many years is truly an honor. These two kiddos are always such a joy to photograph – full of silliness. Miss Stella is just a gem – such a beautiful little lady. Her smile is contagious and she’s as quick-witted as they come. Pete is a little charmer – so many great expressions and those baby blues – how could anyone resist?!
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!
