When I used to live in the high (and dry) desert of California, I would see photos from family sessions taken on the East Coast and longed for the day when I would be able to photograph the vibrant colors and multitude of leaves on the ground. Granted, the desert is beautiful in its own right, but photographing East Coast colors is still pretty darn awesome.
I finally got my wish! This energetic and fun family session was at the tail end of Fall foliage but we still got some amazing color and leaves for our session. And those smiles? Get out!! I can't even get enough of the above photo and that ridiculous joy!! Ahhh, to be young again!!
I love this family to death and am so happy we got some time to hang out and capture some fun family memories from this time in their lives. First year in their new house and the only time these kiddos will ever be this age again. That totes deserves to be documented!
Oh and we had a visit from some wild turkeys during the session!! Mr. Paul was throwing leaves and the turkeys thought it was food and they came running! It was funny and terrifying all at the same time.
And speaking of Mr. Paul, he had these boys captivated. For the photos on the steps he was having them do some "poses" and they just ate it up! It was hysterical and I am obsessed with those images! Enjoy all of my favorites from below!
