While I generally do not blog mini sessions, I knew I would need to bend that rule as soon as these fall family mini session scans landed in my inbox. This was my second year capturing images for this wonderful family and, if you can’t tell from the photos, their little girl is brimming with personality, spunk, and sweetness. I love how this family trusts that I will capture a selection of perfectly posed images, all while allowing their girl to lead the shoot and take me to some of her favorite places on their beautiful property while donning adorable pink cowgirl boots. My hope is that through these pictures – yes, all captured in just 20 minutes! – they will not only have beautiful holiday cards, but also special, personal memories of her hand-crafted birdhouse, favorite swing, and her sweet, spunky innocence.
