This year I held my first ever Fall Mini Sessions! I met the families at Geig's Orchard in Seville, just south of Medina, OH.
Geig’s is an awesome place for families to visit during the fall, where you can go on hayrides and pick your own apples. I love shooting at sunset, so of course the light in the orchard peeking out from behind the apple trees was perfect!
I was lucky enough to meet with three families, two which I have known and a new family for Molly Watson Photography! First was a family of five who I have known from my previous teaching job. Biggest brother was classmates with my oldest daughter and I had helped out in that classroom from time to time. Having them come meet for the fall family mini sessions was an awesome opportunity to catch up and see their growing boys! Being a mom of three myself, I know how much priorities like having family pictures done can fall down on the to-do list, so having these images to look back on is so special.
The second family I had photographed was a family of three with their fourth (another little girl) on the way in the winter! I was so grateful they had made their way down from the westside of Cleveland to Seville for our photo session together. Some of their moments together are some of the sweetest I photographed last year and lent themselves so well to black and white images as well. I was able to photography an in-home lifestyle session for them after welcoming their new baby which I will be posting soon!
The third session for the evening was with a family I have know through my sister and photographed their adorable daughter when she was three months old! Now she is so big with the best curly hair and funny expressions! She loved eating the apples and twirling around between the orchard trees. I just took her lead and kept snapping away!
Here are a few favorites from each of the mini sessions!
