Upstate Fall Family Session

I used to hate photographing families…  I was always trying to pose families, pose after pose in one session.  I would go home, upload the session, and dread editing.  My thought was I’m just not a family photographer and I’ll stick to the newborns…

BUT…  Something happened.  When I let go of the perfection, focused on connection and emotion I fell in LOVE with photographing families.  I do try and get that one photograph all mommas want of everyone looking at the camera, but I don’t let that take over the session.   Once that is out of the way I follow the children and focus on their connections with mom and dad and as siblings and I just let go. 

Now when I leave a session, I have a feeling of relief, because I know I'm going to fall in love with the gallery.  And did I ever fall in love with this session; A gorgeous family and a backdrop of gorgeous fall colors.  Enjoy a look at my favorites!
