The Basballe family came up to the Brainerd Lakes Area and stayed in a cabin out toward Deerwood for a week. They all live spread out across MN with one family living on the east coast, and so this was a special time with everyone able to get together. They asked me to come out to photograph their family vacation, and I happily agreed.
Of course, the weather was solid rain the day of their session. I ignited my weather prayer warriors and hoped for the best. We had some drizzle and needed to take a few breaks during the session to run inside and wait for a squall to pass, but all in all, it was a beautiful session and the sun even peaked out for a minute or two.
The kids in this family are so incredibly cute. Each one looks a little different and all 5 are relatively close in age. Such a blast to photograph!
