Light and Love. {Family Photographer | Minneapolis, Minnesota}

What a beautiful evening this was.  Beautiful light, and family love - the perfect combination.  We took a wonderful walk together through the woods and over Minnehaha Creek, a really special spot for this family.

We started out at home.  Brother and sister posed for me on their special fuzzy rug.

Then... out into the sunshine.
Over the creek.
Snuggles in the meadow.
A lovely glow by a very special footbridge.
And then it was time to head back home again.  Good night!
