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.

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 […]
