“Chasing The Leaves” – Fall Portrait Session

November 8th, 2010

Fall 2010 has been great so far, with some beautiful colors and backgrounds for a multitude of portraits – from seniors to bridal to families and children! I love to photograph outdoors and this time of year is one of my favorites for capturing families amongst some of nature’s most amazing colors.

I always love trying out new locations to find different backgrounds and places I can use to create unique portraits for my clients, so I was thrilled to be able to photograph this wonderful family at Herb Parsons Lake, right here in Fayette County, and just 10 minutes ride from the studio. I suspect that I’ll be using this location again in future sessions, as there was a wide variety of settings with diverse backgrounds in the park.

Despite less than perfect weather (it was very windy, cloudy and threatening rain), I had a great time working with the Reifsteck family to create a beautiful series of portraits.

As you can see, the Fall colors still dominate the scenes and will continue to do so for a few more weeks, so NOW is the perfect time to schedule a portrait session for you and your family.

Visit our Family Portrait pages for more information, but remember that time is passing by… so don’t wait too long!

    It’s great to watch this family grow up if only from a distance! Great shots — just as I remember everyone only they’re growing up so fast! And to catch everyone paying attention at one time — wow, such a feat!

    Beautiful pics (and subject matter :) ) . Love the colors especially the red tree in the background of the family pic (would like to see more of it). And I like that the lake is in the background too. It looks like a place I’d like to visit.
