Fall Family Outdoor Session at The Lodge at Allardale near Cleveland, OH

Happy Wednesday!  I am so happy to feature this family on the blog once again!

I’ve mentioned in my past posts on my old website that I have photographing this family since their oldest son was a fresh, newborn baby!  I love seeing them every fall for family portraits, and this one may just be our best one to date!  We met at The Lodge at Allardale in Medina, OH just outside of Cleveland for our fall family session.  It was a beautiful and sunny morning and I had lots of fun with the boys, mom and dad.  I found this spot as I was searching for some new places to photograph outdoor family photos around Medina and Akron, and this little field behind the lodge had the morning sun in just the right spot behind the tree which really brought old those golden fall leaves.  And look at their adorable coordinated outfits!  The bowtie, suspenders and buttoned sweater on the boys are to die for!  The colors are great and compliment each other, which is a suggest I give my families when deciding on what to wear for a session.  Don’t try matching exactly, but do coordinate and add interest with layers and accessories.

It is something special when you are able to see a family year after year and for them to put their trust in you to document them growing together.  When editing and delivering photos I always think to myself how treasured these images will be for them years down the road and their boys will be so grateful to have pictures with mom and dad in the frame.  Making relationships with my clients and knowing the joy they will have seeing these family photos treasured forever is what makes this job so wonderful.  Enjoy some favorites!
