Summer Mini-Session ~ Minneapolis Family Photography

When I woke up Saturday I almost had to check the calendar, it felt like it could be October outside at a whopping 57 degrees. But it wasn’t, it was still the end of July. I’m not complaining though because it was a gorgeous day for pictures! This is my first year at officially offering mini-sessions and although I have had a lot of expressed interest I haven’t had the bookings like I’d expected. I have one more mini-session planned for the end of September.

Back to the summer session; this family booked their session as soon as I announced the summer date, which made me really excited! They are friends of mine and Parker was born just a few days before my son so it’s been fun seeing the boys grow side-by-side. He was great his entire session! And like all little boys needed his space to run and roam to check things out. I think our favorite time was going down by the water. It was so fun watching Parker explore and test out the water on his feet. Mom and dad were such troopers by just watching him enjoy the moment and hold back the temptation to take him out of the water. Like all fun, it did end with a little more wetness than planned. Luckily we saved the water til the end so it was kinda expected.

We headed back to our cars and made mention of how the clouds changed so quickly. About that moment we started to feel drops and the rain began to pour as we pulled away. So looking back it was probably a good thing I only had one family for my mini-sessions as the remainder would have been rained out.
