What an adorable family!! I mean, look at how cute they all are in their coordinating outfits! I just love the little pops of color from dad, Gerrad and little Adalyn’s dress. 😍
I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve photographed the Johnson family. We’re maybe up to number 5?. They have been one of my biggest supporters of my business since the beginning. The last couple of years we’ve gotten together for their family pictures it’s either been freezing for the month of October or swealtering. This year, it was almost perfect weather.
You’ve booked your family session with a photographer, now what comes next? You want to make sure that everything goes well from location choice all the way to what to wear, but not sure where to start! I’ve created a checklist for you to make sure that you have all your ducks in a row when it comes to planning your family session.
I just LOVE the outfits that the Daly family showed up for their downton Farmington family session last month. I loved how it is very chic and would look great on Christmas cards. I’ve done a few senior sessions downtown Farmington before but never a family session and it was so much fun with Marie and her menfolk.
The more and more times I head to Northfield for a session, the more times I fall in love with that cute little town. *Hint hint future senior clients* This place is so magical and has so many opportunities for spots to photograph in. Which is why I was so excited when Ava’s mom was on board with doing Ava’s senior session there.
Last year I photographed one of the sweetest, and cutest families that I have ever met. You can go back and read about this family here(https://stephanienewmanphotography.com/2021/10/26/rendell-family-session-farmington-mn/). Now picture me this year, when mama Anna reached out to do a session in Lakeville again, but with just kids. All her kiddos, and all her siblings kiddos. Together. In all their cuteness. I was pumped.
Jaden’s session at Whitetail Woods started off not so great. He and his mom got lost on the way to the park, and got his car, that he wanted in pictures, full of dirt. But that didn’t sour his attitude for the session, which was good because I would have been so flustered and angry!
Another fun October mini session at Whitetail Woods with a fun and sweet family, the Westlunds! I have been spending a lot of time at Whitetail this year and have found some really fun locations within to take my families to mix up my portfolio and so they can get some variety too in their pictures.
This time of year is crazy busy at local parks with the beautiful trees changing their colors, for photographers and their clients, because everyone wants family pictures done with those color, more so on the weekends. I met the Mills family at Ritter Farm Park on a Sunday and I got really nervous because the parking lot was packed with cars not only with photogs and their clients but also people who just wanted to enjoy the park.
