little lamby . minneapolis family portraits

feature

this adorable little girl held tight to her lamby for our session. i don’t blame her, a crazy lady with a huge black box in front of her face was chasing her around for an hour. we were able to get some sweet smiles without lamby too.  i’m so glad the sun came out for […]
