One thing I love and miss about Minnesota is the proliferation (which I just tried writing as "proliferance"; sometimes the English language escapes me) of large families all in one state. One example is my friend Elena's family, who I shot earlier this summer. Another is my own family. And then there is this ice-cream loving, joke-making bunch.
My friends Kate and Clay asked me to do this family session awhile back, and we got rained out when I was home in the spring, so I was very happy we were able to make it work this time around. We all met up at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, and we had a blast. These guys are lots of fun to spend time with - they even brought their own sparklers for a grand finale!
