Beth the Kids at the Beach

Zippel Bay, Minnesota

July 11, 2020

I absolutely adored this session. I've known Beth for many years as we graduated together from Lake of the Woods High School back in 2010, and had our lockers right next to each other for all 4 years! Beth had reached out a few months ago about getting some photos with her and her two kiddos and I was so excited. We both have similar styles and love the beach. I knew her free boho spirit and love for Hawaii would create the perfect lifestyle session with her kids. We decided to shoot at a place in our hometown that was one of her favorites to visit; Zippel Bay State Park. We ended up having the most beautiful night and her parents even tagged along for part of the shoot. We started on a little hike through the trees, saw the lighthouse and ended with a cute little beach fire with s'mores and all! I always recommend adding an activity if you have little ones in the session. It helps pull out their natural energy and kept them occupied while I captured them. It's been so fun watching Beth raise Aaron over the years and even more fun now that she's added to their clan with sweet little Aurora! I hope I can capture them again someday!
