Edina Family Photographer | N Family Arneson Acres Portrait Session
This family portrait session at Arneson Acres in Edina features one of my best friends, Susie, and her gorgeous family! Susie and I have known each other since high school, so you can imagine our excitement when we were pregnant with our first babies at the same time! Our sons are exactly one month apart, and it has been so fun to share in the hilarious ups and downs of motherhood together. From labor commiseration to 3am feeding texts to the excitement of developmental milestones, sharing in this experience with a friend of 10+ years has been an incredible ride!
I met Susie, Jesse and baby J at my new favorite session location, Arneson Acres Park in Edina. After a few uncharacteristically warm October weeks, the evening of our session was pretty chilly and baby J was such a trooper! He snuggled in with mom and dad with his chunky knit sweater and big boy jeans to boot. :) Despite the chillier weather, the colors at the park were still so vibrant. As we visited different areas of the park, I was able to capture so many gorgeous images of this sweet family with a gorgeous variety of foliage around them! We kept things relaxed and I encouraged Susie and Jesse to just enjoy being together, and with baby J. You can always tell in photographs when people are having fun, and feeling like themselves! I purposely don’t do a ton of hard “poses,” but instead offer direction of different interactions families can have together. This ensures the most authentic, timeless looking images. As mentioned in this post, I also love to leave time for a few couple shots, at the end! Parents get so preoccupied caring for their sweet babes, they rarely get photographed just the two of them. I hope you enjoy this sample of images! Thanks, N Family!
