The crisp air, the color of the leaves, the smell of pumpkin lattes… oh, how I love fall sessions! I have been photographing the T family for many years (I shot both Olivia & Jeremiah’s newborn sessions!). Each session, we try to come up with a different look. This year, for Jeremiah’s first birthday photos, we decided to take advantage of the beautiful New England fall foliage. There was no better place for this Belmont Ma family photography session than in Minute Man Historical Park in neighboring Lexington. Just check out the rustic look and vivid colors! These are my favorite take aways from this session:
New England Foliage
The New England fall is such a magical time of year. I love looking at all the lively reds, oranges, yellows, and greens! During the fall color change, Boston looks like a kaleidoscope. The family’s outfits paired beautifully the rich autumn colors thus making these portraits burst with color and energy!
Olivia and Jeremiah were so fun to work with. As a photographer, it helps to “let the children be children” and play games during the session. Some of the games we played to get such big smiles included seeing how high Olivia could swing, tickle-monster with Jeremiah, and this family’s favorite: dad throwing the kiddos in the air. I love that the parents joined in (though very camera-shy!) and they all enjoyed themselves together as a family.
My favorite aspect of this family session is watching them grow. From newborns to now toddlers, it’s special to know I was part of capturing such special times in this family’s lives. As mom saw the final images, she brought out other albums and photos from prior sessions… wow, how much these kids have grown! On the wall, there is a photo of Olivia making this same expression.. except she was an itty bitty thing. 😉
