There are so many things I love about this time of year… I love the changing leaves, I love getting to wear boots, jackets, scarves & hats, and I love getting to see all of the familiar faces of families I get to photograph on an annual basis! I first met this family four years ago, when Cole was a precocious toddler, and I’ve gotten to know them so well over the years. I’ve even done my fair share of peer pressuring them to get a puppy!! This year I was shocked to see how much Morgan had grown, and how much more grown up they both were.
This photo session was also an opportunity to practice what I preach as a teacher. I took advantage of interesting lighting scenarios I saw, and worked on applying new perspectives and compositions to my work. I love when the morning’s class discussions impact my afternoon photo shoots.
For this blog post, I was forced to narrow down my many favorite images, so I decided to focus on the relationships and interactions between the family… They’re an awesome, loving, kind and special family, and I think it really comes through in the images.
