Late summer family pictures with this sweet toddler was so special to capture.

Mom mentioned that this was their first time ever having family pictures. She shared it had been on her to do list for a while and she was so happy she finally booked a session. What an honor to be able to capture a family’s first portrait session!

Their little toddler, in her adorable dress, was very curious as we got started with their family pictures but quickly warmed up. She gave some fun smiles as mom and dad interacted and played with her. I loved seeing her tiny teeth as they just started popping out. 

When asked about their little toddler girl before their Edina session, mom stated that she wasn’t walking on her own yet. I wanted to be sure to capture a few moments of mom holding her hand and helping her walk before this stage is over and she is independent. It always goes so quickly, so I always like to capture these tiny moments that they can cherish for years to come. 

Family pictures are one of the most precious gifts we can give not only to ourselves, but to our families as well. If you’ve been thinking about booking a session, check out the 5 easy steps it takes to secure a spot.
