While most of my newborn sessions take place in the home, many of my clients have opted for outdoor newborn photos this summer. I personally am loving the change. We have had some really wonderful weather for it. Furthermore who would want to pass up all the green and florals that Minnesota has to offer this time of year.

This beaming couples Wayzata home was the perfect location for their daughter’s outdoor newborn photos. Their sweet daughter slept the entire time that we spent outside but it didn’t matter. As I was able to capture this little sleeping beauty with her proud parents and adoring big brother.

One of my favorite photos from this session was with baby girl with her big brother. As he held her in his arms he bent down to give her a soft kiss. It was so special to see their bond and how much love he has for his little sister. All in all, I was really pleased with these outdoor newborn photos. Scroll down to see  some more of my favorites from our time together.

For years, I always wanted to be a ‘reader’. But making the space and time to read wasn’t a big priority in my day. Finally, about five years ago, I set a goal to read 10 books in the year. I quickly surpassed my goal and started a small book club with some girlfriends, leading […]
