Annual R family photos in Eagan, MN
This family is one of my "frequent fliers." I've been taking their photos for about four years or so and it's been so fun to watch them grow. For the past few years I've been making a trek to their beautiful home and neighborhood in Eagan. You may recall a video I took of these guys last summer, it's here on YouTube.
I adore how Katie chose to dress them - the teal/mint and tan and white dresses from Old Navymade sure the kids were the focus. How cute are these kids? They're just so adorable and the weather looked a little gloomy when we got there but it held off and made for PERFECT photos.
We walked around their neighborhood and found spots to take some portraits. I love how the kids have parts of the community they love and had ideas for photos. Some of my fvorite photos were from a spot Kyle chose - full of tall grasses and yellow flowers. It was perfect!
When Katie told me the last professional photo they had as a family was one I took when 4-year-old Evy was a baby I knew that was a high priority for this shoot. We used their home as a backdrop for one of the family shots. I've done that a few other times and I think it's a great tool for thie kids to later recall memories from that home. I look back at photos from when I was younger and am amazed at how much the landsacape has changed, or certain toys or seasonal decor we had out triggers other memories.
