Family and Newborn Lifestyle Photography
This is my most recent family photography session that I did as a volunteer for HopeKids Minnesota. Megan and Nick are amazing parents to Teddy age 4 (their Hope Kid) and Max age 1. It was such an honor to photograph families this Fall and, especially, to chase around such fun little boys. Almost every session I did had rambunctious little boys, full of life and incredible energy!
Family Photo Sessions are hard and naturally demanding, but incredible opportunities for learning. You need to become accustomed to a unique family dynamic almost instantly. It is learning on your feet at its finest. Many times the goal for a session is to capture something that is beyond just a pretty image for a Christmas card, but is rather to preserve a moment in a family's journey that celebrates challenges that have been overcome, while preparing for those that are yet to come.
