I was thrilled when Ashley reached out to me to photograph her family picture session. I have known Ashley for over 13 years. As a matter of fact, she introduced my husband and I to each other!

As a busy and wonderful photographer herself, Ashley still makes it a priority to have her own family photographed. We talked about how we each desire and know how important these photos are for ourselves and family. But also how good it is for us to go through the motions, just as our clients do. Even if all the planning, getting kids ready and making it to the session on time can feel like a lot, the results are 100% worth it.

The clothing she chose for her kids for the family picture session complemented the lush backdrop of the Arb so well. If you’re even needing some inspiration, be sure to check out for Pinterest boards for ideas on outfits for any season.

It was so special getting to capture Ashley and her family of four. As a matter of fact, on one of the most beautiful summer evenings at the MN Arb, this session couldn’t have gone any better!

A family picture session is special any time of year. I’d love to set up a free consultation call with you to hear about your family and how I capture breathtaking photos for you.
