Fall brings many things along with it; beautiful fall color, crisp cool winds, and rain…a lot of rain. As outdoor photographers, it is one of the hardest challenges when we schedule fall family pictures. We say a little pray, cross our fingers, and hope for the best. One the morning that we met with Jessica we were greeted with the sun rising near Founders Landing. Even though it called for rain that morning there was no rain clouds in sight.
Jessica has followed our work for years and knew exactly where she wanted to start her family pictures at. The large tree near the shores of Lake Superior has such a unique look. But with all the rain the water was a higher than normal, so getting to the right spot proved to be difficult. Thankfully Jessica & her family embraced the challenge! It was a beautiful location for such a lovely family.
Next, it was onto the woods near downtown. The colors were just starting to change, so the mix of oranges with the greens were really beautiful. We love this family’s playful energy and willingness to do just about anything. We loved the way they ended the session, with the kids playing in the nearby sand pit. The two oldest were sliding down and racing back up, while the little one just was thrilled with throwing dirt around. It really showed how fun this family is! Big thanks to Jessica for allowing us to capture her family pictures and thank the stars above that the rain held off! Enjoy!
It’s like a spider web of branches and we LOVE IT!
He didn’t fall in, thankfully, but if he did we were going to be right there to photograph it! Haha.
Her looking back as her siblings guide her along is just the cutest!
She was having a blast playing in the dirt.
