She Brought the Snow

November 26, 2014

We had an unseasonable snow this morning during this extended family session.  Since the sweet little girl had snowflakes on her tights and is a big fan of Frozen and Queen Elsa, so we joked that she was like Elsa and brought the snow.   While in reality she might not have Elsa’s magical powers, she did have a princess smile and lots of charm.   I had done maternity and newborn portraits when her big brother was born and then just recently had done newborn portraits for their cousin.  Today they all came together with Nana for some pre-Thanksgiving portraits.

Seriously, how well dressed are these little girls?!   Little sis is only 2 months old, but was awake the whole session and fully engaged.  Big sister looked adorable in her fancy dress and enjoyed trying out my selection of little chairs.

My Own Family Photos

November 18, 2014

Thanks to my amazing friend, the very talented and patient Jessica Moore, I was able to step in front of my own camera for a few portraits with my family this weekend.   If Jessica weren’t so talented at her own career in government relations, she would certainly have a future in photography.   My own crew is not as amenable as you might think to having their photos taken (ever heard of photographer’s child syndrome?), but in the end we got both the nice portraits I shared here, and some hilarious outtakes.   Since they always complain about being cold by the time we get around to our portraits, I decided to embrace the cold this year and plan our outfits with coats and tall boots.  That worked out reasonably well for us, despite the occasional complaint about tight collars and itchy wool.   I’m glad to have this “to do” checked off my own list, and now just need to pick which one of the thousands of cards I’m going to use from Minted or Tiny Prints this year.

After two chilly outdoor sessions this past weekend I was back in the cozy studio for this fun family photoshoot.  It was nice to see them again after a few years, this time as a family of four.

I met up with these friends for my second session of the day, and another chilly one.  But we enjoyed the fall color and great scenery and dodged the other two photographers who shooting families at the same location.

What a fun spot for our photoshoot this morning.  It was a chilly day but these little guys were troopers and had fun out on the docks while getting some family portraits that helped capture their love of sailing.

Last Leaves

November 11, 2014


We had to make a quick change of locations for our mini-session this morning when we discovered that last weekend’s winds had brought down most of the leaves.   In the end, we were able to find a few remaining colorful leaves on this beautiful fall morning.

The Red Tree

Ddriving over to our location last week, it started raining, but stopped when I arrived.   We had a lovely session and even found some great fall color, and then on my drive home it started drizzling again.  I’m so glad we managed to time the session just perfectly.   They did such a great job coordinating their outfits and it was so fun to see how much the kids had grown since I last did family portraits for them.

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.
