Happy Cousins. {Minnesota | Family Photographer}

This session goes down in the books as one of the sweetest and most joyful I've had.  Two cousins from far away were visiting their Minnesota family and having a fantastic time. I've photographed part of this family before and every time it's a delight.  Their cousins proved to me that joy certainly runs in the family!  And right here is why I like being a photographer.  It's fun.

I'm thinking Grandma and Grandpa are going to be pretty excited about these, too.  (But don't tell them!  It's a surprise!!!  SHHHHHHHH!!)

Is poetry, though never in a Book it lie -
True Poems flee."

Modeling is tiring work.

  13. These are sooooo perfect, Leslie!!! Those children have beautiful eyes! The grandparents are going to be thrilled! If I had to pick a favorite, it would be the hold hands in the circle shot, but they are all great!
