2022 Highlights: Sunset Sessions Edition

What a year for Sunset Sessions! There's no better way to show all the stunning images from the 20 clients this year than to share sunset sessions highlights of 2022.  I want to thank each and every client who chose to take part. It was a record breaking year for sessions and I'm so grateful.

Fall's Sunset Sessions are some of my favorites that I have the pleasure to photograph each year. I love the variety of colors Minnesota autumn brings. The golden lighting of the setting sun creates a beautiful backdrop. When it's a cloudy sunset, the colors seem to saturate and pop. Either way, you can't go wrong!

In 2o22, I got to see how the kids of returning clients had grown as well as meet many new families. Both are such a joy!

Here, the Sunset Sessions highlights 2022.
