Though it is the middle of winter here in Cleveland, OH I still have some catching up to do from my fall family photography sessions from 2016.
One of my favorite fall outdoor sessions with one of my favorite families ever. I first had photographed this family with just their little boy. The next time we met mom was expecting another baby, a little girl! At that next family session, we incorporated a few gender reveal photos and I was able to capture the big news in photos and in a video. Both sides of their family are not local, so it was the perfect way to capture this amazing time and be able to share it with their loved ones far away. We caught up again for baby girl’s in-home newborn lifestyle session (blogged here).
For this year’s session, we met on a cool and cloudy fall evening in Medina, OH at Allardale Lodge. We were lucky to schedule this session on Halloween weekend after they had moved to another city and were visiting the Cleveland area, so it was able to work out perfectly. And though I love the evening sunset, an overcast evening definitely works for it’s diffused and even light. We have become friends over the last few years of photographing sessions together and it is such a complete joy to see their family grow. Not to mention some of most kind and happy people which always makes for an awesome time together 🙂
