This group of people right here are so fun to hang out with and take their family photos! And four generations?! Yes, please! It’s always a great time to connect with the McDonald/Teal family. I first met them all at our church and have had the pleasure of photographing them when the Teal family unit was only 3 and now they’re 5! It’s amazing how quickly life changes and time passes by, but the love of a family overcomes, grows, and yet stays the same love.
What I love about the fall photo season is the unique opportunity to see so many families in such a short amount of time, to see so many families at different stages, and to see so many precious relationships between the family members. The McCoy family here are one of those families. It’s mom and dad and their little girl — and wow, do they love each other. They were completely at ease, completely ready to just laugh and have fun with one another, and completely amazing.
One of the coolest things about our job as wedding photographers (and also Lindsay as a portrait photographer)? Getting to photograph the family photos of a past wedding photography couple! Jake & Jessica are that such couple! (You can see their fun wedding here.) They now have little Carter, and boy-oh-boy is he cute! Not to mention, they had their fun furry family member joining in for some of the fun. ;)
It’s getting to that point where I’m shocked that another year has gone by; yes, I know 2020 has been quite the year, but it’s also already almost November and family photo session season has come and almost gone (thinking about doing some Christmas mini/micro sessions amidst the chilliness). Here’s a fun family that has given me the privilege of documenting their life and trusted me when I first started taking photos — all the way back to when Jeremiah here was just a newborn.
7 days old. Yup, you heard that right! This little precious one is 7 days old! And the family managed to make it to an outdoor mini sessions on time with two other sweet littles. Seriously impressive! When Jenna reached out to share that their sweet little Hazel had arrived, she asked to schedule a mini session at the end of October. I wrote back that I’d recommend sooner rather than later and said I’d open a spot for them the coming Sunday if they could make it work, because in Minnesota, you never know just how cold it might get or if we would get snow. Little did I know that we would have a windy-but-nice 60-degree day and that we would realize how grateful we would be that we switched to meeting sooner as temps are now in the 30s, and we got 6 inches of snow this week. Did I mention it’s just past mid-October?!
