Spring is definitely in the air, the trees in full bloom, the grass sprouting wildly and the air feeling less and less crisp! This little man was definitely on the move this evening! It has been so amazing watching this little man grow over the past year from an adorably expressive baby to the fun and extremely active 18 month old he is today!

I just love when a fellow photographer and friend asks me to take their family photos because I know together we will come up with amazing ideas and get even better photos!! We photographed at my favorite time of the day, the time us photographers refer to as “the golden hour.” Also known as the small 1-2 hour window before sunset where the sun is low in the sky offering strong shadows and contrast along with a delicious warmth to the everything! We started at the Heritage Center in New Richmond for some really great semi-traditional and lifestyle images with the beautiful white barn, rustic iron bridge and other historic buildings as our backgrounds. We then went to Hatfield for a vintage baseball themed family shoot which was nothing less then AMAZING! Perfect lighting, perfect wardrobe, perfect subjects, and perfect location!

A Perfect Moment \\ Family & Children

I am absolutely in l-o-v-e with every single image from this family portrait session the other day! These two kiddos are seriously adorable overload! I have so much fun capturing their true expressions while they are exploring, playing, rock climbing or just sitting there being adorable! We photographed late in the day at one of my favorite local state parks. As the sun was setting, we headed up to a beautiful spot on the cliffs overlooking the vast Saint Croix River Valley. There we captured my all-time favorite image of this family just being a goofy, laughing, loving family, lit perfectly with the warmth of the evening sun… literally a perfect moment! At the very end of the session as the sun dipped below the cliffs, the kiddos grabbed their favorite Halloween costume and favorite buzz tee and played dress up… photo session style!

So can I just say how much I LOVED this session?!…. Seriously how cute is this family!! We photographed on the families beautiful property with the most gorgeous vine covered barn, cute little white wooden shed and serene fields… can we say perfection?! For what started off as a pretty rainy and dreary morning ended up being the perfect afternoon for photos, there was a quick break in the clouds allowing us just enough time to get all the different family and child portraits! Following the family photos we gathered around the dinner table to enjoy some of the most delicious home made wild rice soup I have ever had… seriously it was THAT good!!

A Mothers Love \\ Mother & Child Portrait

With the evening glow of the summers sun at our backs we walked the lower trails of the park towards the quaint waterfall tucked back in the small cliffs. and I must say… I just love these two! We didn’t get just your traditional family photos, we climbed, splashed, explored and played in the dirt! It’s really great when you get to go outside, have fun, laugh and get your picture taken in a natural and relaxing environment. As the sun was going down, the valley really came to life with the sounds of birds, bugs, people and rocks skipping along the river…!

There were a lot of laughs exchanged in my favorite shot of the day with the five siblings making faces at each other, priceless!
