Minneapolis is home to some amazing families, like this one. Little Nova is growing up fast (and is definitely going to be taller than me by the time she’s 8), but just like any other carefree kid she loves to run around outside and explore. The park turned out to be a hit, as Nova’s smiles show. And with Minnesota gracefully easing into winter, we were given a perfect, warm evening for this super fun shoot.
