Summer family pictures in Minnesota are often times overlooked as the humidity and mosquitos can feel like a problem. However, having the lush trees and grass, sun kissed skin, and summer clothing is a win for me. It also turned out to be a win for this family of five I had the pleasure of photographing!

This Edina family of five embraced a Minnesota summer session like champs. They went with the flow in their summer clothing, ditched the shoes for a more casual look and focused on loving and embracing the season they are in with three young ones.

This is one of my favorite locations in Edina to photograph families, as it is so versatile. There is a nice pebble walking path that is often pretty quiet so it keeps little ones focused on the session. There are also areas of tall grass to explore, which adds to the playfulness of the session.

Are you wondering if summer family pictures may be right for you? Check out my recent blog post about family pictures throughout the seasons to see the benefits of summer family pictures.

It has been a joy getting to photograph this family over the years. I have capturing their family ever since the daughter was one!

It’s not too late to get on my summer schedule, so let’s connect and I can tell you about the everything-you-need experiences that can be catered to your family.

Family pictures with a six month old can be a bit unpredictable. The mood of a older baby can be tricky, especially when it comes to a stranger. But from the minute this little guy got out of the car he was smiling and ready to go! This little boy may be the happiest, most […]
