I just adore this family and it’s been great to capture them through the years. Last year, there were three in this family and this year there’s four! The lil’ man had a difficult morning, but we still got some adorable images of him with his family. We started the session up on a hill so that we could capture some of the beautiful fall foliage on the hills across the way, but it started to get a bit too windy, which also made it chilly, so we finished the session at the bottom of the hill in the woods where it was much warmer and hardly even a breeze to speak of. Amazing what a simple change like that can do to one’s spirit. Mom and I spoke on the phone regarding the session and I mentioned that since they were wearing red, I had a little radio flyer tricycle and a red airplane I could bring and she mentioned that she was thinking of bringing a radio flyer wagon. Great minds think alike! All the red worked out beautifully against the Autumn colors. Enjoy the sneak peek!
This evening I had a portrait session that left me so inspired! I just love creating art and it’s energizing when all the scenes that I had envisioned in my head come out even better once captured by my camera. So many things were just perfectly aligned tonight – cute girl, gorgeous wardrobe, beautiful weather, lovely late afternoon light and great location. I scouted out this location yesterday and came across three areas that really caught my eye and I started planning this gorgeous family’s session in my head right away. The first image below was an area that I drive by all the time, but for some reason never really noticed until yesterday. When I saw it, I stopped my car, jumped out and looked at it from all angles. I was so excited about my find! Well, I have to tell you…I was even more excited once I snapped this portrait below. I just knew it was perfection. Thankfully Bella’s dad held the flash for me so that we could illuminate this lil’ beauty under the tree. A light stand would have tumbled into the water, so an assistant was dearly needed. Thank you so much. As you can tell, it was well worth it. Great job dad!
Autumn is my absolute favorite time of year and I just love the way these images reflect the beauty of the season. These lil’ ones were so much fun to photograph and I am so thankful that their dad made a makeshift tent out in the woods. Isn’t it the cutest? So much fun for a child to play and hang out on lazy days.
