Located just 5 minutes from Lanesboro, Minnesota is the beautiful and quiet little town of Whalan. Tucked away at the edge of town is Cedar Valley Resort. Cedar Valley is an absolutely gorgeous lodging property with many log cabins tucked into the bluffs. Last Wednesday I met part of the Thompson family down at this resort for a family photo session. The family was from all of the United States and it was a treat to get to spend some time with them photographing them while they were all together on vacation. Several of the family members were from much warmer places (Florida and California), but they even braved our “warm” late November temperatures in the 40’s to get a few outside pictures at the end of our session. Here are a few of the images I liked the best from the day.
