MINNEAPOLIS FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER | EAGAN, MN POOL SESSION

Non traditional family sessions are my favorite. Pick an activity that is meaningful to your family - something you LOVE to do. It could be going to brunch on Sunday mornings, it could be running around with sprinklers in the backyard, or in the Sexe Family’s case - launching your kids as high as the second story of your house in the pool. Anna first contacted me and said she had an idea about a family shoot and was wondering what I thought. The phone on her camera wasn’t cutting it for capturing the epic height or reactions on her kiddo’s faces anymore, and she was nervous as they got bigger, that the height will start to decrease. While that may be true, I have a feeling with these kiddos they will be jumping and flipping into that pool for MANY years to come. We started with 15 min of family photos outside of there house, with a quick change while we grabbed a few more of sweet little Aspen, and we were launching. SO FUN!!!

Lowertown St. Paul Senior Session, St. Paul, Minnesota | Reese

Lowertown St. Paul is one of my favorite spots because literally around every corner there is something new. The buildings and architecture are amazing, the stone, colors and quietness make it a perfect spot for everything from engagement photos to senior sessions. This is Reese, class of 2019.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN PHOTOGRAPHER - QUINN 3 YR

This girl had an amazing birthday on Saturday that included so many family and friends, a bounce house, cake, donuts and of course presents.  What 3 yr old wouldn't wish to do it all over again.  I didn't think we would get out to take pictures due to the birthday hangover and general irritability, but thanks to some mini marshmallows, this girl turned it on and had a great time playing in the park.
