Family {Burnsville, Minneapolis St. Paul, MN | Family Portrait Photographer}

I love making new friends.  Like this little guy, right here.  He came to see me this week for some pictures.  And a whole lot of singing.  Airplanes.  Laughs.  And some really great conversation.

He also brought along his very nice mom and dad.

These were all done inside the natural light room at my photography studio in Burnsville, MN.  I really wanted to try creating a natural, homey feel, even though we were at the studio.

Then we stepped outside and played in the field out back.

If it's ok to say so... my sweet little pal here was the biggest fan I've ever had for my singing.  This was during verse 3,497 of "Surrey With the Fringe on Top" from Oklahoma.   He would sit, listen, sing along, dance a little, run to me, give me a hug, then RUN back to sit down, saying, "Do it again!!!" 

Kindred spirit, right here.  And he gives the BEST tackle hugs.  I'll not soon forget our time together.  He was such a wonderful burst of sunshine.  

Thanks for looking!  To view my complete portfolio and session details click here.

If you would like to have your own family session at the studio or on-location (and would like to hear me sing "Surrey With the Fringe on Top") contact me here.
