Fall Family Sneak Peeks | North Oaks Minnesota Child & Family Photographer

Had this adorable session the other weekend.  Poor little guy was not feeling well but I’m not sure looking at these images you could tell.  He could be the happiest sick kiddo and then in less than 2 minutes time the saddest.  He still managed to tolerate me for the most part and hug me at the end of the session so it was all a success.  Hopefully he’s feeling better now . . . fall is always so beautiful but everyone starts getting sick!  Time for those flu shots!

Mini Sessions Explained | North Oaks, Minnesota Family Photographer

Mini sessions are a scaled down version of my regular photo sessions.  They last approx. 15-20 minutes and do not include outfit changes.  Around this time a year I get a lot of requests for family mini sessions.  I do not offer these for fall foliage sessions.  Believe it or not mini sessions take me the same amount of time to process than a full session and fall is just too busy of a time to fit them in the schedule.

I do offer mini sessions year round for 1-2 children ONLY on location.  This mean no adults.  This is a kid only session and only focused on the child or siblings.

Family sessions in the STUDIO can also be booked year round.  These make great heirloom portraits.

Snow Sessions.  Enough said, right there.  It’s too cold to stay out any longer.

Themed sessions.  These are the fun sessions like Halloween, back to school or lemonade stands.  These are great 30 minute play date specials and will be announced on facebook or instagram if they are taking place.

The exception to the above rules is when I host a day of mini sessions.  These discounted mini sessions are set-up by you.  We pick a day and a place that works and you invite your friends.  There is a non-refundable fee for booking but this is the time to get discounted mini sessions for the whole family.  I do these once or twice a year with a Matilda Jane Trunk Keeper.  She invites her clients and I photograph children, seniors, families and we do what we can in 20 minutes.  If you have a few friends that would be interested in something like this let me know and we can set up a day.

If you’d like to be notified when sign ups begin for any upcoming mini session event, please let me know and I will add you to my waitlist.

And just added is this year’s last minute holiday sessions!  Sessions will be held in the studio on November 5th & 12th 2017.   Backdrops will include fall and Christmas styled as well as heirloom (think grey and white walls only)  These are being scheduled now and times are still available.  If you are interested e-mail michele@mqnphotography.com

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!

Centennial High School Senior Session | Twin Cities, Minnesota Senior Photographer

Well for this senior session we did not have the best weather but we didn’t let that stop us!  And it never rained too hard on us that we couldn’t keep shooting well except once but we just hid under a tree for a brief moment.  That’s the thing with fall, sometimes it’s hot or too cold or too windy or even just plain rainy.  But in-spite of all that fall is one of the most beautiful times of year.  Meet this senior who will be graduating from Centennial High School this year.  She spends her afternoons as a nanny but plans on college after high school.  Good things are in store for her and I can’t wait to see what her future holds.
