Summertime family pictures in Edina with mom, dad and two kids.

Summertime family pictures are often times overlooked as families think they need to book their session in the fall. However, I think summer is a perfect time to capture family photographs. Everything is green, lush and beautiful this time of year! 

Schedules in the summer are often a little more flexible, as school is out and most activities slow down. Plus, the summer glow is able to shine right through as everyone is more relaxed and comfortable in breezy, cool clothing

These summertime family pictures in Edina were a perfect example of capturing that summer vibe. We chose a location that was simple where the kids could run around, explore and we could focus on the family connection. A perfect time to bond with school starting and activities right around the corner.

Plus, they were about to welcome their third little one! I am so happy we were able to capture their photos on a beautiful Minnesota evening. Scroll down to enjoy some of my favorite moments from their Edina summertime family pictures.

It’s never too early to reach out to me and inquire about family pictures. I’ll get back to you within 24 hours to schedule a free consultation call to get to know you and answer any questions you have.
