October Portrait Day: Fantastic Weather/Beautiful Families

Our first ever October Portrait Day was so fun! The weather was great, a little cool in the morning but just perfect for fall portraits. When Melanie and I arrived at the park, I was shocked to see that one of the huge trees in the "spot" I had picked had been cut down. It was such a large tree and the stump that was left behind was so significant that it really changed the whole landscape of the area. Luckily Melanie thought of a great idea - why don't we use it for portraits? Sit the families there and have a natural bench. Perfect! What a great way to take an obstacle and make it work for us.

Swinging with mom and dad. This seems to be a favorite thing of many of my "mini-clients". I must have a dozen pictures of kids being swung in the air by mom and dad. But this angle is new for me. Can't you just hear her laughing as she's lifted off the ground?

How cute are these twins? Definitely holiday-card-worthy.

Everyone mentioned to us how happy they were that we did the event. It really did provide the perfect opportunity for holiday cards and automatic grandparents' gifts. We will definitely host this event again next fall. If you''d like to receive information about the event next year, send us an email and we'll add you to the list.

Thanks to all our great families!
