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.
Whoa mama the colors really popped after taking a break from doing sessions for a week because my husband was in Alaska on a missions trip. The sumac really stood out for the Smasal mini session in Hastings.
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.
I always enjoy the ideas Autumn’s mama comes up with for her yearly pictures, last year it was all her stuffed animals, the year before that it was rocks, this year was no different. Vintage Coca-Cola.
Katie and I were next door neighbors almost my entire growing up years. The first year we lived in the house next to Katie and her family, we were invited to a block party. And that year, the kids put on a talent show for the adults.
Last year I met Kayleigh and her adorable family of 3 when her mama booked a session with me while they were visiting Kayleigh, Taylor and Miles from Indiana. This year I got to meet Taylor’s family at another session with Kayleigh and her menfolk.
