The Dirkes Family {Minneapolis, MN}

One of my favorite families to photograph, introducing for the second time on this blog, the growing Dirkes family!!! Craig is also a photographer, which means extra pressure when it comes to experimenting with creative license … one of my favorite things to do. After getting a few “safe shots” out of the way, we created a few studio-style portraits with the PhaseOne medium format system and this simple lighting setup. And we had a little inspiration from Lion King along with a few meltdowns. But when you are photographing little ones you can’t pose, you just roll with life and enjoy the ride. Being fearless, of course.wpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-01-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-02-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-03-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-04-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-05-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-06-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-07-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-08-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-09-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-10-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-11-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-12-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-13-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-14-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-15-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-16-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-17-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-18-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-19-2012-11-30-11-01.jpgwpid-dirkes-family-minneapolis-family-photographer-20-2012-11-30-11-01.jpg

    WOW! I am MADLY in LOVE with these photos! Thank you so much, Rj. We had so much fun shooting them too. As I was looking through the photos I could hear the laughter being re-lived with each one. Can’t wait to frame some!

    Ohhhh, lovely family. Loved the soft lighting and the outside fun. Especially the up-and-coming young photographer with the purple skirt. So cute. A treasure of pictures for the family
