I loved capturing these Edina fall family pictures! We met on a warm, fall morning just as the trees started to turn yellow. I always enjoy a morning session as little ones typically have lots of energy to share. Plus, they aren’t already exhausted from the day. Being able to photograph this family in the morning also meant it was fairy quiet out. In fact, we had the whole park ourselves, meaning no distractions for their little one.

Momma reached out to me so I could capture this special time as a family of three before their girl becomes a big sister!! While the big-sister-to-be was a little shy and unsure as the fall family pictures got underway, she got comfortable. She soaked up all the morning snuggles and hugs from mom and dad, which got us some precious smiles.

If you’re thinking you’d like to get some fall family pictures done, it’s best to act now and book early to ensure I can accommodate you. Once that’s done, it’s also a good idea to start thinking about your family outfits. As a lot of clients will use these pictures for their holiday card or to hang in a frame at home, you’ll want to think about and plan outfits. If you’re not sure where to start, I have some ideas pinned for you.

It’s my goal is to make your experience with me as easy and stress-free as possible, so please reach out if you have any questions about the services I provide or any other FAQs.
