Spring is coming! Spring is coming! Well, eventually anyway. This relative heat wave we are experiencing gives us all hope that soon, very soon the snow will be gone, and in it’s place lovely green grass and beautiful flowers. In my continued blog catching up- today’s feature is from a session last summer. These two ADORABLE girls were a dream to photograph. So sweet and so sisterly. There’s just something about summer dresses. I remember when it was all my own daughter would wear once the weather got warm. She lived in dresses. Which, she’s not a super girly-girl, but she just loved the ease of one piece, and insisted it was so much cooler than shirts + shorts. Those days sadly ended around age 9 for her- she switched her fashion sense into more Ts and shorts. She will still occasionally wear a dress by her own choice, but long gone are those summers of endless dresses. Sniff…sniff…
Anyways- this session was all kinds of awesome. Adoring sisters who love to laugh and run and dance. We walked, we talked, they laughed and danced and played and whispered secrets to each other… It was all kinds of wonderful.
Our session took place at one of my most popular locations for family photos, the MN Landscape Arboretum in Chanhassen. I’ve had a photographers permit to do sessions there for many years now, and it’s really an amazing place. Over a thousand acres of gorgeous land- filled with gardens, prairies, orchards, and paths. My favorite thing about the Arboretum, is that I can go there time and time again, and always find new little perfect pockets for photos.
Oh how I LOVE this series of them in the rose gardens. Girls in dresses dancing among the roses while chasing bubbles. It doesn’t get much cuter than that! I mean, seriously….it just makes the heart happy.
