To say this session was FUN would be an understatement!!! Let me be honest for a moment...squeezing this session in during our whirlwind of a weekend was CRAZY, but I wouldn't have re-scheduled for anything! My husband & I attended Northwestern College (now the University of Northwestern) in St.Paul, MN back in the day with Kristine & Cameron (I won't say how along ago to save us both the embarrassment!!!.;)) We recently reconnected via FB (good ol' Social Media) & now it's become tradition to get an annual shoot in with this ADORABLE & HILARIOUS family! Needless to say Kristine is more familiar with Eden Prarie since that's where they live & I well...I trust her judgement to choose a location every time. We decided to stick with Bryant Lake again because A.) It's huge & B.) There are endless places to shoot. So I told her...let's meet in the main lot & fly by the seat of our pants. It's true folks...true to my nature to roll with the punches & be inspired as I go.
INSPIRED would also be an understatement! As SOON as I spotted the colorful canoes I was over the moon EXCITED!!! You see, I've always wanted to do a water/beach/colorful canoe/boat what have you session. Here was my opportunity! Now...you may think I'm teasing when I say this, but seriously you would've thought we literally planned all of this out because UMMM...hello, look at their outfits, now look at the canoes!!! Can you say Photographer's Heaven?!!! Like I mentioned in my FB sneak-peek post...EVERYTHING worked out like Magic on this night...the weather, the wardrobe, their smiles, their energy, the lighting, the sunset. AMAZING!!!
I just have one last thing to say...if you LOVE these photos & you live in MN...ask Kristine for my contact, because I would LOVE nothing more than to keep adding families to my trips & heck, maybe I could even stay longer than a weekend. LOL!!!
Enjoy a peek at this beautiful & vivacious family...
P.S. Don't miss the "dabbing"!!! =)
