The Gassner kids gifted their Mom & Dad a family portrait session for Christmas last year, and we were absolutely thrilled when they invited us to their GORGEOUS property for the shoot just after the holidays! When the day of their session arrived, the sun was bursting through snow-covered evergreens and our eyes were exploding as we made our way through acres and acres of winter wonderland. Never mind the fact that it was quite chilly as well, because we felt so inspired and excited!! The laughter that filled the woods with the Gassner family was enough to keep us warm in single digits for hours! Several trips back inside for outfit changes and fireside warm-ups helped too. ;) 

We were lucky enough to photograph Kayla & Alex's beautiful Minnesota wedding in 2012 and think the world of their family, so naturally we couldn't wait to spend the afternoon with them out in the snow!! :)

Thank you guys for being such troopers and for sharing your lovely home with us for the day! We had so much fun with you all and hope you enjoy these images!

Love, Kelsy & Butch
