Summer family pictures with family of three.

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 content, and smiley 6 month old I have had the chance to photograph.

I met this family of three in Edina near 50th and France on a beautiful summer day. As we got started I noticed how this adorable toddler matched his mom and dad’s outfits. Dad mentioned that mom often has clothes picked out well in advance, waiting to match and be photo ready. Overall, it definitely worked to plan ahead as they pulled off the matching look to a T.  

Throughout the session mom and dad were so playful and embraced the moment. Their ability to be present with their boy made it so easy to capture the loving relationships.

Scroll down to check out some of favorite photos from the family pictures with toddler session. So you know, they include the ones that feature the captivating toddler’s big brown eyes and tiny little teeth. 🙂 These family pictures with toddler are some I won’t soon forget. 

Have you been thinking about getting family pictures? I offer a Family Portrait Session Experience that captures your family just as your are at this moment in time. I’d love to set up a free consultation call so I can learn more about your family and how I can best serve you.

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 […]
