What photos will be taken?

We will try to cover a full family portrait, group and individual kid photos, couple's photos, and a few candid's as time allows.


Who can participate?

This free photo session is available to foster, adoptive, and reunified families working with the Minnesota foster care system. We ask that participation be limited to parents/guardians and their children.


How will the photos be delivered?

You will get an email from Kirsten at K Solberg Photography with a link to your private online gallery, where you can download your hi-res jpg images and a print release.


How will the photos be used?

This is our gift to you, and we respect the privacy of families and foster children. We will not use these photos for any purpose, other than to deliver them to you, unless we receive your express permission for specific use. 


What about the weather?

We will use the pavilion in the case of light rain. However, we will cancel in the case of severe wind or storm conditions. If this is the case, we will schedule a new session date for the spring of 2018. We will let you know 24 hours in advance if there is a cancelation. 


About the location:

There is free parking, bathrooms, a playground, and plenty of room to run around at the park. We suggest you make time to play before or after your photo session. It's a great way to get some energy out before sitting in front of a camera or a reward for afterward.


What the wear:

Dress for the weather, but also think about coordinating colors and textures. We recommend solid or subtly patterned clothing with muted colors.

Again, we ask that you let us know if you want to participate by October 18. There are a limited number of time slots available, and they will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis.
