Family Holiday Session ~ Lake Elmo, MN

I headed out to Krueger’s Christmas Tree Farm one more time for a final family session with my stylized holiday mini session props, and I was so ridiculously excited… Wahooo SNOW!!! I mean come on, it’s December in Minnesota, where was the snow? Of course we would have snow in December, right? I spoke too soon… it started to get warm the couple days before this session and I kissed the winter wonderland of snow goodbye. A little stuck around, just enough to make it a wet mess, just my luck!

Pulling into Kruger’s was rough.. oh the MUD!!! So so sooooo much mud!!! I embraced it and accepted I was just going to be covered in mud by the end of the day from walking, crawling, crouching and laying in it. I am bummed I didn’t take a picture of the craziness, but I am sure you can imagine what my knees and calves looked like.

Meet The Cherniy Family!

They definitely were the highlight of my day. Any worry I had about mud, getting stuck or slipping around disappeared when we started this session. I mean just look at little baby Lucas! Isn’t he a doll! Seriously, he looks like a sweet little doll! But I swear he’s real! He’s just a tad too little for smiles, but he still had that pout lip that I cannot resist capturing! We managed to break ourselves away from his adorableness to get a couple gorgeous shots of Mom and Dad too! You all three look amazing!

Congrats on your new journey as parents! I look forward to see you all again!

Thank you again to Kruegers Christmas Tree Farm in Lake Elmo for allowing us to capture these amazing memories that I’m sure will be cherished forever!

Holiday Mini Sessions in Lake Elmo, MN

I was so excited to do these holiday mini sessions outside and not in a studio! This was my very first stylized shoot where I put together this whole cute little set of favorite holiday items… My set consisted of hot cocoa, candy canes and marshmallows, lots of marshmallows, some snowflakes and cute pinecones! I had always wanted to do a session at a Christmas tree farm but being so busy this time of year, it just never happened. This year I was determined to make the time and block a day to do minis out at one! I searched all around the Twin Cities for the perfect tree farm. One that wasn’t to far north or too far south, since I have so many clients all over the metro, I really wanted to make sure it would work for anyone. I stumbled upon a small family owned tree farm in Lake Elmo that is so adorable, it was perfect for my sessions. I spent a full day out at Kruger’s Tree Farm in Lake Elmo, MN last weekend capturing 12 different families holiday pictures!

I started the day with the sun just coming up over the horizon. It made for a great first session of the day. The sun was in full force. It was shinning bright. But don’t let that fool you it was COLD! I had a blast getting to know new clients and seeing a couple of my regulars. Thank you everyone for making this day so fun! Your sessions turned out so wonderful and I can’t wait to see everyone again soon! Also, a shout out to my wonderful assistant Tasha who was 7 month pregnant (with twins!) and ran around all over the place for me!
