This is another session from last Fall. As you’ve probably noticed, I have a lot of family sessions at the lake in my neighborhood. This however is not in my neighborhood, but it’s another private lake in a neighborhood in Great Falls. It’s smaller, but you can swim, fish, and boat in it just like ours. The reflections on the lake and the Fall leaves were crazy beautiful and cast this very golden light over everything. This family was SO much fun. Many of my clients have very young children and the parents and I spend a lot of time during our sessions trying to get their attention, keeping them from getting too dirty or out of harms way. With this family it was just all fun sprinkled with some very sweet moments. I feel like I am in a “sweet spot” with my own family right now; things are much easier than they were even a year ago, but looking at these photos and remembering how much fun they were having and how close they all are is making me look forward to a few years down the road with my own kiddos.
(Side note to any photographers: I had a lot of sessions last fall (well for me–not compared to most of you I’m sure) and I was experimenting with different processing. Looking at these 5 months later, I am realizing how different they look from my norm!)
