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.
