Bloom Lake Barn with Matilda Jane | Shafer, Minnesota Family Photographer

Last week we held an afternoon of mini sessions at The Bloom Lake Barn. It is such a beautiful wedding venue but we got to use it for our sessions and it was perfect! I’ve mentioned before I love these sessions and it’s not just the cute clothes the girls wear but these sessions aren’t always about the clothing either. This time I was even fortunate to photograph a couple of handsome seniors. It’s fun to mix it up. Anyway here are a few sneak peeks from the day. I can’t wait to post my favorites on Facebook. Stay tuned . . .

Matilda Jane Holiday Mini Sneak Peeks | Lindstrom, Minnesota Child & Family Photographer

We had another fabulous Matilda Jane Mini session day.  We focused on the holidays this time around and I got to see some familiar kids and met some new faces as well.  My daughter did a great job helping me out this time too so she was able to join the girls in some of their group shots which she enjoyed doing.  So without further ado here are the sneak peeks from our day.  I can’t believe how much sun we got.  We totally thought it would be cloudy!  2016-11-18_0001

Can you believe all these sneak peeks?  Ok I have lots of work to do to try and get everyone their images before Thanksgiving!  Here’s hoping!

I just love love love doing these Matilda Jane mini sessions for my favorite Matilda Jane Trunk Keeper.  We always have so much fun and everyone always looks fantastic!  If you are curious about Matilda Jane you must visit their website right away! They are actually based out of Fort Wayne, Indiana (my former stomping grounds)  They have the most adorable girls clothing and my daughter loves many of the pieces not only because they are adorable but because many of the fabrics are super comfortable.  If you are looking for a trunk keeper in Minnesota I’ve got the perfect one for you.  Anyway I’m here to showcase some sneak peeks from our session.  So without further adieu  . . .
