One of the many things I enjoy about having started my business is seeing friends I haven't seen in years. Erin is the mother of this family and we went to high school together :) She contacted me this past fall wanting family photos. She stated that every 2 years they have traditionally gotten more "formal" photos taken and was completely open to trying out a new style... my style :)
Erin and her husband have been married for 13 years and have 3 children... one being Erin's niece that she is raising as her own (I completely admire her for this).
When I asked Erin what she was looking to document she said, "Christmas fun! Hunting and cutting down a Christmas tree. This will be the first time any of us have other done this. Maybe slay rides, sipping apple cider/hot cocoa, and capturing whatever other fun activities are available at the tree farm. I want to capture a mood of fun and silliness. Kids being kids."
It was 11 am and we met at Krueger's Christmas Tree Farm in Lake Elmo, MN on 11/28/15. The weather was perfect... we've actually been VERY fortunate so far this winter with mild temperatures!
