This time of the year is a photographer’s dream– the changing colors of the trees, the carpet of fallen leaves on the grass, and when that gets mixed with the 70-degree weather we’ve been blessed with around here lately, what we have is a outdoor photography playground! Yesterday was no exception– I got to go out and photograph good friends of my husband and mine (and their kids of course)! We went to one of my favorite locations for child and family photography… Horseshoe Lake in Shaker Heights. There’s so much for the kids to climb on and play with, and such pretty scenery for great photo backdrops! To me, the best pictures happen when the kids have no idea that they’re being photographed… when they can be themselves, and have fun. That’s when you get the pictures that remind you of THEM! Here are just three of my favorite shots of my little friends and our photo play-date yesterday!
