Family Photographer Minneapolis – Elling Family Lifestyle Session
Are you prepared for some serious cuteness? When Courtney was looking for a family photographer in Minneapolis she knew she wanted to find someone that could showcase her family’s love. When I called her for her pre-session consult I knew we would be a perfect match! She told me about her adorable little girl and how she really wanted to showcase their family connection in the comfort of their own home. Which by the way, I think is best for children 2-3 years old. I will get back to that further down though.
It was a perfect early summer day and we had planned to read a couple of books in the front yard of their family home in Minneapolis. The Elling family made my job easy! They just oozed with love for one another and that really shines through in their photographs. Just take a look!
So why do I think photographing 2-3 year old children in their home (or somewhere they are comfortable) is best for their family photography session? Because they need to be comfortable! While some kiddos have zero “Stranger Danger”, others might be a bit stand offish meeting someone new in a strange place. If you think that might be your kiddo we might want to think about setting up your session in a local park or even your front yard! Not only will your children be more comfortable but so will you. No travel time, no need to worry about getting everyone in the car and getting to the session on time and those photographs will be in a place that has meaning to your family. Who knows if you will move to a new home years from now!
