Mother and Daughter {Minneapolis, St. Paul, Stillwater Minnesota} Family and Child Photographer

What can I say about these two that isn’t totally obvious from their photos?  Both of these gorgeous ladies were so wonderful, sweet, and completely the best of buddies.  What more can you ask for in a mother and daughter duo?  There was so much love between the two of them, my heart melted the whole session.  They also were dream clients, who took advantage of my styling services!  I supplied links to clothing that would be perfect for the style and mood of portraits they wanted, and I think it turned out so beautiful!  It truly makes this photographer a happy girl!

I honestly feel so blessed to be a portrait photographer in the Minneapolis and St. Paul metro.  The unconventional (read: COLD) Minnesota spring makes my job interesting sometimes, but with the right hardy clients, and some patience, we can work through anything!
