Last Family Session of the Year | North Oaks, Minnesota Family Photographer

I’m not sure where the year went but it’s flown by and I’ve had the last family session of the year.  I love this location for November and December (January/February/March) sessions because it gives it a nice woodsy look even though there are no leaves on any trees.  Gotta love the evergreens!  Here are some sneak peeks from our session.  I’ll be sure to post favorites on Facebook as soon as I finish up the gallery.  Stay tuned . . . .

Baby it’s Cold Outside In-Home Session | Dellwood, Minnesota Family Lifestyle Photographer

Baby it’s cold outside!  So let’s have an indoor family session!  I love these.  The kids are usually so much more relaxed in their own environment.  Here is a sneak peek from my last session.  Where we stayed nice and toasty indoors instead of braving the cold.  I’ll be sure to post favorites on Facebook when I finish editing the whole session.  Stay tuned . . .

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!

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.

Is this photo session indoors or outdoors? If it’s outdoors you’ll probably want to consider a theme that suits the current weather.

What season is it? If you are looking to use a specific backdrop or seasonal prop, use Mother Nature’s current display as your theme.

Do you love a specific historical era, such as the 50’s? Or a particular TV series like Star Trek? There are so many eras and movies that you can draw inspiration from. Make a list of shows, movies & eras that you and your family love.

Do you have specific hobbies? Perhaps you are an animal lover, a sports fan or have a passion for fashion. Make a list of your interests and your theme might just jump out at you.

Is this a major life event? Use your pregnancy announcement or your wedding as the perfect excuse for a fun photo session.  Is your baby turning one?  Use a setting and props that speak to both you and family’s interests. There is also tons of inspiration on websites such as Pinterest that you can turn to for ideas

Whatever theme you decide to choose, make sure that it speaks to your personalities so that you genuinely enjoy the process. Themed photo sessions are also usually a great way to encourage children to be involved and to get them excited.
