These fun family pictures in Chaska were such a treat to capture. Somehow, we got lucky to have such beautiful weather this year for all my outdoor family portrait sessions, including this one. Which I am so grateful for! 

It was a warm summer night when we met up at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. I was pleased to find this magical little spot on the grounds. Everything flowed so well together as we walked along and I was able to capture all their sweet interactions.

Our time was filled with lots of snuggles for their little boy and the best of smiles and excitement from their girl.

Mom did a great job on selecting their outfits for these fun family pictures in Chaska – they coordinated so well together. I loved the pop of color in their little girl’s dress and how that complemented baby boy’s sweater. I know it can be tricky to find that balance, which is why my Pinterest boards are full of inspiration for you.
