On the Riverside Trail

This family is another of my clients who I have had the chance to work with since their children were very young.  I remember doing newborn portraits for their son, and now he’s quite the talkative little preschooler!   We had fun exploring the trail out toward the river as the leaves fell all around us.  The gorgeous fall colors they picked for their outfits were just prefect for the setting.

Geese and Leaves

This is a favorite family of mine to photograph.   I’m honored that they have three canvases of our previous portrait sessions displayed in their home.   In the days leading up to today’s session, we were anxiously watching the forecast for expected rain.  But it turned out to be an unseasonably warm morning, and the rain held off until well after we were done.

It was a lovely afternoon and I had the help of my daughter as a photography assistant/dog manager for tonight’s session.   I have been photographing these adorable girls since they were newborns, and now the older daughter is in Kindergarten!  It’s hard to believe how times flies.

And last but not least…the leaf pile!

It was nice to see these kids again and to explore a new location with them.  They were so excited to see the leaves, and I promised them some leaf-throwing fun at the end of the session.

I have been doing family portraits for this family since they were just a family of three, and seeing them year after year has made my job so easy that in our mini-session this morning we managed to get a full sessions worth of pictures!   There was even time for some zombie poses and a little mid-session dance party.   Here’s a little look back at their family…

Evening in the Park

It was a brisk evening, and we managed to get our session done in record time.  It was so nice to have the chance to photograph these sweet little girls again.   The younger daughter was full of giggles and energy and big sis was a willing model for us.  Aren’t they an adorable pair?
