The L family has been in front of my lens for several years now. This year they joined me for a family session at Bird Park. As a Walpole photographer I am there often in the fall! The park is a photographers dream, with multiple unique settings and lots of room to roam. I have several spots at the park that are favorites, but also find new secret areas almost every time!
Check out this families previous sessions from 2014 and 2015. Kids sure do grow up fast! The father is a photographer himself, so during our sessions we focus a lot of the whole family. We always have fun and this year was no exception!
The first thing we did was loosen everyone up with a walk. The two siblings are always adorable together! Fall colors are, of course, beautiful but I do love a few from this session in black and white. So timeless!
If the children are the right height, I will ask the parents to kneel down beside them. It enhances the idea that the kids are still small but brings the whole family to the same level. Some day that little boy is going to be as tall as everyone!
Then it was off to the bridge for some images of the two kids together. Some serious and some goofy, of course!
There are a few great spots just feet from the parking lot at Bird Park! This stone pillar is always a favorite with clients.
Finally, we went back to the tall grass. I love this first image, with the daughter leaning on dad. I also love her pop of color in her hair. Mom did a wonderful job choosing outfits (as usual!) and the coral in her necklace and the daughters bow are perfect!
There’s nothing better than this kid’s face as mom runs with him! Love it!
The image below is the one that ultimately ended up on the Christmas card. Everyone looking, snuggling, great light, and wonderful smiles all around!
A black and white image of siblings playing is always a favorite of mine! If I had to pick one from this session to put on top, it would be hard to knock this one out of first place!
…then, you know how siblings are! We gave them a little freedom to play!
