A Chilly Halloween Family Session | Wayzata Family Photographer

November 17, 2010

The frost was still on the ground when I met the wonderful Eldring and Laski families in Wayzata for a family photo session.  They were such troopers!  We would take breaks between the shoots to warm up with coats, hats and mittens.  As we were there, the frost melted and we were able to get some great photos of the entire family and even some of Mom and Dad Laski who hadn’t had a professional photo taken for many years.

After the outdoor session, we traveled to the studio for some fun individual shots of the kids.  It was great for me because they all brought their own personalities to the shoot. It makes my job easy when kids feel comfortable being themselves. We had so much fun!


Reliving The Good ‘Ole Days | Minneapolis Family Photographer

November 16, 2010

Reason #4329 why I love my job: being asked to take family photos of dear friends from long ago (high school and college).  When Alison sent me a Facebook message that she was interested in setting up a photo session with her family, I was over-the-moon excited.  Not only have I known both her and her husband, Luke, for nearly 20 years, but also their kids are ADORABLE!


The rain scared us away on our originally scheduled photo session date, but the next day we chose was absolutely perfect. We ventured to Theodore Wirth Park in Minneapolis for the photos.  We got yelled at once for going “off the path”, but I reassured them that I’m really good at begging for forgiveness vs. asking for permission. 😉


Here are some of my favorite images from the session. I hope you love them!
