On a lovely October evening, I met up with the Petersens at Greenwood Park in Des Moines. Apparently, we weren't the only ones who felt it was the perfect time for portraits in the park, as I saw at least a half a dozen other photographers in the park as well. Busy place! I was a little worried at firs, but thankfully, we were able to find some amazing locations and not interrupt anyone, or have anyone interrupting us. How sweet is their little girl?! She was so smiley for her photos! Going into the session, I knew Eric and his wife Kanya. I have had the opportunity to work with Kanya on several photo shoots through the years, check out a few here and here). She owns Designed by Kanya Marie, creating custom dresses and doing alterations. She does fantastic work! You should definitely check her out! It was an absolute pleasure meeting the rest of the Petersens and capturing their family portraits! Be sure to keep checking back for more family portraits from this busy fall!!
