Perfectly Pumpkin Filled Fall Family Photos | Rochester NY Family Portrait Photographer

I love Autumn. I know maybe it’s a strange statement to make when Spring is in bloom, but seriously. Give me golden leaves, pumpkins, bonfires and a chill in the air, and I’m a happy camper (actually I hate camping, so I’d be a miserable camper. But you know what I mean.). So trust me when I say that the portrait session I’m sharing today was pretty much my Superbowl (another thing I love about Autumn! Football!). We had perfectly golden autumn leaves, pumpkins, hay bales, and I even got to go home with cider and donuts. Oh Autumn, I love you.

This is another family I’ve been photographing since before they were even a family! It’s so exciting when I get to photograph a client multiple times - the results only get better as I get to know each family member and their distinct personalities.

We started the day just after sunrise on top of the big hill in Ellison Park. After playing at the park for awhile, we decided to go to a local farm market to check out the pumpkins. This little boy’s mind was totally blown at all the Autumn goodness we saw that day. I know buddy, I feel the same way.

One advantage to getting to photograph the same clients over and over... we get to do fun photos like this!

Autumn Family Photos in Mendon Ponds | Rochester NY Family Portrait Photographer

Spring is juuuust around the corner… but I hope you’ll indulge me in the next few weeks as I share some of my favorite sessions from the last few months of 2014. You may see some falling leaves and cozy sweaters, but don’t worry - I won’t be so cruel as to post any photos with snow. I think we’ve all had enough of that for at least a few months, don’t you?

Today I want to share a really fun family session I had in late October. I took this family’s first set of photos almost two years ago, when their daughter was nearly a year old… and was delighted to follow that up with a maternity session six months later, when they were expecting a baby boy. This time around I got the full package- Mom, Dad, their two year old daughter and nearly-one year old son!

We decided to head to Mendon Ponds Park, where the leaves had mostly fallen off the trees, and conditions were ripe for jumping in leaf piles - much to the delight of the little ones.

It’s been such an honor to work with these folks as their family has expanded and their children grown - they’re exactly the sort of clients that I always hoped I’d have. I can’t wait to photograph the next chapter of their lives, wherever that may lead!
