Would you believe by looking at these guys that they are a Florida family?
They look warm and cozy and right where they belong!
When the leaves started to change this fall they contacted me about a session. This was their first fall in MN and wanted photography of their family to remember the scenery.
Right away I knew we had to find a time quickly. Being a Burnsville family photographer I know how it can be golden and red one day and brown the next. I had an opening that worked for them and we quickly got it scheduled.
I started scoping out areas that had rich colors and beautiful scenery and found one that I was so excited about. It was near Interstate 35 so it was easy to access and had so many spots that would work perfect for their session.
The day of the session I was a little disappointed because it was a bit gloomy. Being a bit cast over is actually quite beneficial as a Burnsville family photographer because you can shoot anywhere without having the suns harsh glare. The downfall is that you don't get the rich warmth of the sun when it starts to set.
While I was preparing for their session the sun came out and I knew exactly what I would do if the sun decided to peek out during their session. I warned them while we were shooting that if the sun came out I might freak out and yell for them to run. Sure enough when the sun came out we all went running, it was a bit goofy for a minute, but 100% worth it to capture this sun drenched warmth.
I hope you guys have so much fun during your first MN winter back as a family!

Oh my goodness. Look at this cute little ONE year old! I remember seeing her mamma just a year ago so tiny and cute with her little basketball bump belly and now Miss Lucy is working on walking.
I knew ahead of time what Lucy would be wearing so I planned a few different set ups to coordinate with this super cute outfit.
Keeping it simple and about the child and not the props is really something that I find important.
As a Lonsdale child photographer I do enjoy props, however I like to keep them minimalistic to keep the focus on your child and their features rather than all sorts of different things that won't have as much meaning in a few years.
I do welcome props from families if they have something special they would like to bring. As a Lonsdale child photographer I keep touch with families ahead of their sessions to help them plan. I know what their outfits look like (and give advice if needed) and also if they plan to bring something. This way when you arrive with your child we can concentrate on their pictures and having fun together rather than trying to plan a session and get to know your child.
Happy first birthday sweet Lucy! You have the sweetest smile and the most adorable chubby cheeks! I look forward to seeing you again soon!

Madison had so much fun during her 1 year old session, especially at the end when she got to have her yummy cake!
These sessions are always so much fun to see little ones get to experience cake for most often the first time. My favorite moment is when they stop using their hands and just eat with their face!
