Now and Then. {Family Photography | Twin Cities, Minneapolis St. Paul, MN}

This family was so much fun.  Yeah, I say that every time, but it's true every time!  Now, here is one of the things that made this particular family fun.

When they booked their session a few months ago, one of the things they wanted to do was to re-create a family photo they had done in a studio when the daughters (now both in college) were toddlers. They sent me a copy of the photo and I was so, so excited to do this for them.  I love how their updated version turned out.  I also would like to know this lovely mother's secret for not aging at all in 17 or so years... she looks exactly the same!

Here are both versions:
We did some more studio images... and I fully expect to re-create THIS one in 17 years!
It wasn't too terribly cold out, so we headed outdoors and laughed some more out there:
