So I have decided to back-blog (If that's the right terminology)....
On a hot Sunday in July I photographed a close family of mine's family photos and their daughter, Payson's 1 year cake smash photos. I've known Tammy and her family since I was in elementary school and the good ole' St. Al's. 6 months ago I photographed Payson's 6 month photos, I can't believe she's one already!
Sunday was for sure a hot day but it wasn't too bad with the wind in the shade. We went to a park called Lakeside in Spring Lake Park. I have actually photographed a wedding there before. Its got a cute little lake, a nice bridge and some walking paths, it was perfect for this photo shoot.
We first did the family shoot. My favorite one is of Kasey throwing Payson up in the air, her smile is precious! Then I took some of jsut Payson and then the cake smash! For the balloons I went to the Dollar Tree first because I know they have balloons but they weren't able to blow up just plain ballons I asked and they said Festival doesn't do them either- but I had a hunch and I went next door, so glad I did because they had a whole section for balloons. They were so helpful and it was a very decent price too! Highly recommend Festival Foods in Brooklyn Park!
Such a good looking family!! I can't wait to see how they have grown up on the next photo shoot!
