lifestyle family photos


These photos were taken in homes in the Minneapolis area and on Lake Nokomis. Activities we incorporated into the sessions include tea parties, car races on the floor, reading books, eating donuts, playing with toys on the floor, and skiing.

What I love about this style of photography is documenting whatever unfolds!
