This year’s senior class has created so many fun opportunities to be creative as a photographer. I’ve done sessions with cars, sports equipment, fun props like wands and light sabers. For Quinn’s session it was planes! It was so cool to head to the small airport in Lakeville and use a small plane for some of his photos!
Also, this is my first winter senior session. And as you all know with Minnesota weather in general, it is unpredictable sometimes
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.
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.
The Williams family was a winner of silent auction donation I had given to a local youth baseball group from this summer. I was so excited to meet this family that I showed up at Ritter Farm Park super early. Thankfully it was a gorgeous night to hang out in my car without melting while the a/c was off.
One should know that having lived in Minnesota for the most of their life, that just because the autumnal equinox has happened and the leaves have just started to change, does not mean that autumn temps are present. As was the case with Gavin’s senior session at Ritter Farm Park this September.
I met up with Payton and his mama at Ritter Farm park early Saturday for a warm yet beautiful morning at one of my favorite parks in the area.

Amanda lived in a house full of boys, including the dog…up until almost a month ago. I’ve photographed Amanda and Paul’s family of 5 for the last couple of years. We’ve both been boy mamas to three dudes that are roughly the same age as each other. Then last fall she announced she was pregnant […]
