A Mommy & Son Session ~ Hastings, MN

I know I say this a lot, but I LOVE when sessions are made a little more sentimental to my clients by a location or a prop, and that is what happened here. Boys will be boys was the saying at this session. Little mister is definitely the typical full of energy exploring two year old boy! He was more than happy to play with his Moms childhood toy tractor. This tractor means a lot to Heather, and I love that I was able to catch a few moments of them together. Today, so many toys disappear or break so it is so precious that she kept something that was hers to share with her family.
We went to The Little Log house in Hastings, MN. This location is to die for! Did you ever wonder where the sign from the old Cottage Grove Drive-In went or the old Porkys sign? The Bauer family has created one amazing place to preserve these iconic signs and buildings. Once a year, the Bauer’s open the village to the general public to tour. I have already made a mental note to come by next year! But throughout the year it is available to rent for weddings or for any other special occasion, like family pictures! I am so happy Heather shared this beautiful gem in the outskirts of Hastings. I would have never knew it was there. I cannot wait to shoot another session there!

Rainy Day Mommy & Me Session ~ Cottage Grove, MN

This session was so much fun! I have been taking pictures of little Oliver’s parents since before they were even married! It has been such a joy to see him grow into the young gentleman he is today. Tasha, like most moms, is usually behind the camera and really wanted a Mommy & Me session with her little boy. And what is more fun to a little boy than puddles? Nothing. She had to show him what to do to get him going, but after that, there was no stopping him. Be sure to scroll down and check out the picture of her kissing him on the cheek, she looks so serious, but it turned out super cute!

Tasha is the kind of person who says, “When life gives you a rainy day, play in the puddles!” And that is exactly what we did.
