+Minnesota Family Lifestyle Session+

 

Today's post is one of my all-time favorite family sessions that I've done so far. I had so much fun with this family of three: Abby & Seth and their little guy, Silas. Abby and I have been friends since college and one of my favorite trips was visiting her out in Washington where she used to live (And where she met her husband Seth!) 

We met up in St. Paul, Minnesota (our old 'hood) and took some indoor lifestyle shots before braving the Minnesota winter for some outside pictures. I loved how they were up for anything and had tons of fun ideas to try for this session. Also thanks to Seth's sister for letting us use her gorgeous St. Paul apartment and helping us get everything together for the shoot! 

Another thing I love about photographing families is getting to see them interact together, especially friends that now have little ones. Abby and Seth are so sweet with baby Silas and they actually make parenting look really fun :) I remember them talking about how much they love their Silas, what life is like with a baby and how they don't miss life before him- that was so refreshing and inspiring to hear. Also Silas makes the.most.adorable expressions and was definitely the easiest baby I've photographed- He wasn't afraid of the camera at all and would look right at it, laughing and playing- SO cute.

There are so many photos that I love from this session that it was hard to pare down a selection for this post. I still probably ended up choosing too many, but here they are below!
