Outdoor Family Photography at Big Stone Mini Golf | Minnetrista, Minnesota Family Photographer
Earlier this fall I had the pleasure of working with Emma and her family on their fall portraits.  When she suggested Big Stone Mini Golf  as our location I was so excited!  We had a great time walking around the grounds and using the awesome sculptures as back drops.  The staff at big Stone is amazing and I'd gladly shoot there again, not to mention take in a round o[...]
