Apples + Pumpkins + Donuts = Smiles Galore! | Boston Fall Photo Session

by | Sep 11, 2019 | children, family, latest sessions

Can you feel it? The crisp air is arriving. I’m just looking back at my portfolio of this fantastic family because I have the pleasure of seeing them again very soon. These images remind me how perfect Fall is for a Boston Fall Photo Session. Not only is the light just right, but the ever-evolving foliage offers photographers (like me!) a different scene for every single family. No two days are alike.

Boston Fall Photo Session

This was my second time photographing this lovely family from Newton. And wow, they’ve grown! But, of course, they were just as cute as ever when we got together at Shelburne Farm in Stow, MA for family apple and pumpkin picking.

Oliver (top), 3, and his sister Addie (bottom), 5 1/2, loved Shelburne Farm! They spent two hours with Mom and Dad roaming through the apple orchards and pumpkin patch. I trailed behind quietly, my camera lens peeking out through the branches here and there, snapping images of their playfulness.

Is there anything sweeter than seeing images of your children running for joy, breathing the fresh air, and simply loving the experience? I loved this photo session, because the kids could roam free and be themselves. Finding tons of ripe apples to take home made the time fly!

Shelburne Farm gave us plenty of opportunity to capture beautiful images. I love the Fall colors. I’m sure these pumpkins looked great on the front porch and then as jack-o’-lanterns a few weeks later.

While the day was wonderfully low-key, we didn’t miss the chance to take a break and get some portraits with each parent and as a family. Nothing too formal, of course, for this super fun crew!

And, at last, is there anything better than ending the day with fresh apple cider donuts?

Even I had one.

Looking forward to seeing this family again this week for our third session together! One of the best parts of my life as a photographer is the relationships I build with repeat clients. I truly love seeing their families grow and change over the years.

Thank you, families.
