Waconia, Minnesota senior photo session.Read More
I first met Danielle and Shane last fall when I had mini sessions in Waconia. Then, little Paisley was just a few months old so when Danielle contacted me about doing 1-year-old photos as well as some new family photos I was thrilled.
We choose an evening in one of the hottest weeks of the year and planned to get some fun "golden hour" shots of the family and soak up the yummy sun at some of my favorite outdoor spots in Chaska, Mother nature had other plans, though. It was a rainy, overcast day.
So we rolled with the punches and photos of Paisley inside at my in-home studio. She was pretty stingey with her smiles but we still got some adorable photos of her. Her momma had ordered her adorable outfit from Etsy.com. I couldn't get over those "shoes."
After working hard to get some photos of Paisley we went outside and got some family photos. We went to a location that had a little trail so they wouldn't get soaked. I love the moodiness of the photos and how the smiles and love shines through.
Little Emma is on a baby plan with Keighla's Fresh Face Photography. She came when she was just about three months old for her first session and now she's here for her 6 month photo session! She has the cutest round little face and big blue eyes. So So So cute!!
One of the outfit options her mom brought was an adorable navy and white outfit. With America's birthday just around the corner I took advantage of the cute outfit to throw in some red and make it red, white and blue. Blue is a great color on Emma.
Emma and her mom came to the home studion in Chaska from Mayer for her photo session. I love setting up the room and getting it ready. It's a fun transformation each time to see it change from one session to the next. Many times I make banners or other coordinating props to help customize the photo session in the studio.

Hilary met my mom about 10 years ago when they were in an early childhood education class in Waconia together. Since then they have become and stayed close friends. Even when Hilary's family had to leave the Carver County area and move to Texas for her husband's job our families stayed connected.
This May, just in time for my in-home studio Mommy and Me Mini sessions, Hilary and her middle child Natalie were in Chaska. They've been relocated back to the tundra state and were checking out local schools and squeezed in a mini session! How adorable are they in lime green. I can't wait to start to photograph this family (including her husband and other two kiddos) when they move back this year. Natalie took direction so well and loved being in front of the camera and Hilary was easy to work with - it was a fun mini session!
Seriously those bright, cheerful, coordinating colors make me so happy! How sweet is she - child photographs - that are not school photos - allow so much more personality to show through! I love how natural they look snuggled up together. I'm curious to see how tall little lady is back to back with her mom in a few years! Then it will be time for follow-up photos!
