Hi again, everyone!
Let me begin by saying that I am seriously the luckiest photographer in the world. My clients are always so wonderful to work with. That's true of my session with the Palmieri family, too!
The Palmieri family consists of Joe and Kristin, with Ashley, Ava and Joseph. They love to travel and camp together and always enjoy fun family time!
We set up the session for the last Sunday in October. Who would’ve thought that we would get some snow on Saturday night! We talked in the morning and I asked Kristin if she wanted to cancel. It was chilly, in the 20’s, but no too bad for Minnesota standards. Since all of our upcoming schedules were difficult, not to mention the fact we were heading into November, we decided to go for it.
We were so happy we did! Location, Location, Location! I have to say it was pretty amazing! Along with the snow, and of course the wonderful family, this all made for some beautiful photos!
I met up with the Palmieri's at a southern corner of Woodland Trails Park in Elk River, the entrance being down the block from their neighborhood. I absolutely love this park for winter sessions.
The outfits Kristin chose for the session were casual, and she tried to make them coordinate colors and patterns so they didnt distract. She also was going for a warm, cozy feeling. She did a great job!
When I asked Kristin to tell me their favorite parts of their session and why they enjoyed it so much, she responded with, "We enjoyed our session because it was near our house and we love Woodland Trails, so it was nice to capture the trail we use so often as a background for our shoot, plus the snow added a beautiful backdrop!"
While the location and snow were great, it was the Palmieri family that made this shoot such a treat!
I could only hope that there is a snow storm before all of my family sessions! One can dream, can't they?
