A few months ago one of my dear co-workers asked me if I’d snap a few photos of her kids before some big life stuff happens. Big life stuff being sending two kids off to college, putting your house up for sale, and moving you and your 15 year old down to Iowa to be with dad who is already there. She wanted photos of her kids in Minnesota together one last time before all this happened.
So I met them at Minnehaha Falls, a place that in their years living here had never been. I followed them around the park and snapped away as they explored, climbed, splashed, laughed, and ate ice cream together. I do believe we even got a few genuine smiles out of the 15 year old. I wanted it to be relaxed and not a “photo shoot”; I wanted it to something fun for them as siblings before they all go their separate ways. Below are a few frames from our time together.
And one last side note… I’ve worked with their mom for years in labor and delivery. I still remember some of my first shifts working nights with Traci at my side teaching me the ropes. She has been a wonderful co-worker and she will be missed. xo
