minnehaha falls extended family session | minneapolis family photographer

© Tina Vega Photography

Photographing extended families is an electric experience. The blending together of multiple families brings about an energy that cannot be matched.

© Tina Vega Photography

This family is no exception. Heather, a longtime retreat friend of mine, gathered her favorite people together for a session at Minnehaha Falls. We met earlier this month when leaves were just beginning to turn. The sun was out and the air had that end-of-summer-bordering-on-fall-feel. My favorite time of year.

Apparently, I am not the only one who feels that way because the park was teaming with visitors. Heather’s parents arrived first, giving us time to get to know each other before the rest of the family arrived. It seemed fitting to begin simply with the two of them because that is exactly how their story – this family – began.

Soon after the rest of the family arrived.  We gathered leaves and acorns.

And played little games.

I photographed my niece Emma earlier this summer and it was then that we tossed around the idea of a “Part 2″ to her senior photo session.

a new season in more ways than one | minnesota lifestyle photographer

© Tina Vega Photography© Tina Vega Photography© Tina Vega Photography© Tina Vega Photography

I met Colin and Chelsea for the first time when photographing their wedding four years ago.  We bumped into each other a second time at another wedding a couple of years later.  Then Chelsea contacted me last year for a family session and I was thrilled to be able to work with their family again.

This year I got to meet the furry members of their family.  And capture all of them together in their new home!

No doubt an exciting season for this family.  The session began with a little tour of the kids’ rooms.
