There is no setting quite so spectacular as a Minnesota park in the fall but there is nothing quite as cozy as your family at home! Deciding where to shoot is a personal decision. Do you want a polished, playful look or a real-life authentic moment captured in just the right way? Do your kiddos get excited by new environments or show their true selves best in a familiar environment? If your house has great light or your yard is full of old oaks or sprawling grass... Home might be the perfect place!
I know I am supposed to be slipping on my chunky sweaters and boots and singing the praises of pumpkins and cider but I am NOT there yet. I want to ring out every last minute of Summer. This time of year I start to gently remind myself of little things I love about the coming season. I think about bonfires (better on the beach!) and rediscovering the back of my closet full of warm clothes (I'd rather wear a tank top!) and any other (futile!) attempt to lure me into welcoming fall.
But... then I remember shoots like this one. Cool enough for rosy cheeks and sweaters but warm enough to be outside as long as we want to be. Colors popping up in unexpected places and beautiful families at play. If you aren't quite ready for Fall let's have one last summer shoot! If you are in full on fall mode - help me transition! I have opened up extra spaces next weekend to try to squeeze out the last little bit of summer OR maybe remind myself that Fall in Minnesota really is a stunner. Get in touch and we'll make some great photos of your favorite season.
