I had so much fun hanging out with Mariah, her mom Becky, and brother Mikhal.
Since her brother was home from the Air Force for a short visit and about to leave we decided to do a family session along with some of her senior photos so she could get some photos together with him and her mom.
The outtakes from our session were too cool not to share. We had such a blast and laughed so much which you can clearly see.
What better place for a session that a place that speaks all boy. Momma did a little exploring and found two great locations for their photos session. Over the last 2 years I have had the pleasure of photographing these two adorable little guys several times and I can’t get over how much they have grown up in such a short amount of time.
I first met them back in December 2011 for a family photo session at Michel Schlumberger winery in Sonoma County, California. Over the years I have become very good friends with the family and I am so very excited they have recently decided to come out to Minnesota. I gotta admit its the best feeling having a little bit of home (a part of my life in California) now so close to me here in Minnesota.
It was so much fun working with one of my favorite models for a spur of the moment session out at Sugarloaf Ridge State Park. I had been there once before but never really got a good chance to explore so it was so awesome to find so many different natural backdrops throughout the park. We arrived at the perfect time to have fun playing with the light as the sun set behind the ridge.
