Prior Lake, MN Photographer – Outdoor sessions

It’s March in Prior Lake, MN which means I will begin shooting outdoor photography sessions again.  I cannot even begin to type out my elation! While it is totally possible to shoot outdoors during the winter here in Minnesota, most of my clients are under the age of 3 which makes things a bit difficult :).  For me, I would rather be outside! Shooting outdoors opens up a wide range of backdrops and possibilities and it allows the kiddos run wild!  Plus, everyone is a bit more comfortable outdoors which will allow those genuine expressions to come more naturally.
I wanted to share a couple of photographs from two different family photography sessions. Both include the cutest little guy ever!

I LOVE this family photograph of the Travaline family! They were referred to me by one of my good friends and I couldn’t thank her more for that! I just love this family! Their session was on a bitterly cold Minnesota winter day but we made it work! They had to cuddle together for warmth and I just love how much connection that created in their family photograph.  This session took place at Cleary Lake in Prior Lake, MN. Just look how tiny Micah is!!!

Kristen brought Micah back to my Burnsville, MN studio the next year on a warm August day. It was such a blast to see how much this little guy has grown over just a few short months. Isn’t he adorable?! Those curls are just too much!
