I always feel so honored when a friend asks me to do pictures for them. So when my friend Bridget asked me to take their family pictures and pictures for their oldest daughter who had just turned 5 I was thrilled! We used to work together back in another life (it seems) at an insurance agency. I am so glad I got to know her there because she is one of the nicest women you will ever meet and her and her huband make a wonderful couple. And if you don’t notice from these pictures they also make beautiful babies!
At the family’s request we met down in Olde Town Mankato and it was the first time I’d shot there. Man are there some gorgeous brick buildings to use for backdrops along with some beautiful vines. You never know what you’ll find when you walk down an alley…this time it was all good! Their family shots turned out great but my very favorite from the session was the black & white I took of their youngest daughter and her strawberry shaped face. She is going to be a heartbreaker some day (all of them are actually).
Thank you Whipps family for trusting me with your family memories and I hope you loved these as much as I do!
