Hill Farm Fun Family Sneak Peeks | North Oaks, Minnesota Family Photographer

You would never guess by looking at these images that just 2 hours before, it was storming!  I thought we were going to have to call it a re-schedule or at the very least a very gloomy session.  But by the time we met up the skies cleared and the ground was only a bit wet.

These twins had me on my toes the whole session.  I think 3, well ok & 2 year old’s too, are the hardest to photograph.  They don’t necessarily want to pose they want to keep busy and play.  Which is what I love about lifestyle sessions, they get to do that.  It’s definitely all about the family bonds and that’s ok because they are only this little once.  Enjoy their enthusiasm!

At Hill Farm with the Kavan Family Sneak Peeks | North Oaks Child & Family Photographer

Hill Farm is one of my favorite North Oaks treasures.  I take my kids there a lot to photograph and I love when other North Oaks families choose this location.  It’s such a fun place in every season.  This summer and just last week I was there with this lovely family.  I can’t believe how much this little girl has grown since the last time I took her pictures (at another “secret” location in North Oaks) I love watching families grow.  Anyway here are some sneak peeks and stay tuned once I finish us their gallery I will be posting some favorites over on Facebook.  Enjoy!

Just Us 12 Times (November a bit late) ~ North Oaks, Minnesota Family & Child Portrait Photographer

Every year I attempt my own family pictures for the holiday card.  One year I hope I’ll suck it up and hire someone but I just never do.  I will say every year its getting easier and easier so that’s something.  This year (besides the kids ok really just my son and his tantrum over his sweater I made him wear) it went swimmingly well.  It was  a bit cold and there was complaining from my daughter and hubby to wrap it up but we were sort of having fun.  No tears while we were taking the pictures.  But I got home uploaded the images and found that my settings were off!  I was devastated.  I had metered correctly but my ISO was set at 4000!  For those who don’t know what that means I rarely go above 500 when I’m outdoors and this means my images are going to be super grainy.  Think old film days when you used indoor film speed outdoors!  ugh….  Oh well I think the new camera probably preformed like a champ but I can’t wait to print these out to see if they look bad or if they miraculously look ok.  Embrace the grain!012 I cannot tell you how many of the above images I have before I finally just had everyone move up closer to the camera!  doh!  🙂
