Family session at Minnesota Landscape Arboretum

I’m so excited to share this family session from a gorgeous afternoon at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum!

When my good friend reached out to be about family photos, I couldn’t wait to photograph them again this year! Their last session with me was for baby girl’s in-home newborn session. 

We had such wonderful weather for their family session at the Arb in Chaska. It was a warm, early Fall evening where the light was shining through the gardens so beautifully. The natural light gave the perfect glow to this energetic family of four. 

I loved the clothing that mom chose for their session. With it being the beginning of Fall she incorporated some fall tones without being too matchy. The blues really popped and added a nice contrast to their family photos.

One of my favorite photos that I got to capture was of mom and her girls. I loved when big sis went into sneak a kiss from her little sister. It was so special to capture that moment, plus their littlest girl was starting showing off more of her personality – which was so sweet. 

To the Nelson family, thank you so much for allowing me to capture these precious memories for you! 

Are you starting to plan for a family session in 2023? I’d love to schedule a free phone call with you to get to know your family better and see 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 […]

These timeless in-home newborn photos are one I’ve been so excited to share. On a quiet and bright morning, I arrived at their south Minneapolis for this newborn session.
