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.
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.
