Fall Festival is for family

Over 100 families stopped by to have their annual (or maybe first!) fall photo during the Fauntleroy Fall Festival.  We spent time debating how many years I’ve been doing this and figure it’s been at least 14 years! It’s been a pleasure watching our community grow. I met up with some of my high school seniors, bridal couples and of course so many young families. Here’s a sampling….

Family time

The Anawalts call every year for the annual holiday photo. Capturing images at this time of year is always weather dependent but the crisp early morning air and sun breaks all worked in our favor. Traversing the property we found lots of interesting areas for the pics. We go through our ritual of groupings including mom and dad, mom with the girls, dad with the girls and the family all together.

Remember, it’s always a great time to capture family images….

Fauntleroy Fall Festival brings out the families

The Fauntleroy Fall Festival is now a family tradition…and I’m so pleased to be part of it!  It was great fun seeing old friends and meeting new ones. The crisp fall day was a perfect backdrop for the annual souvenir family photo.  You can download your complimentary image by clicking here.

Fun in the sun

I met Natalia and Carson at the water in Lincoln Park for our photo shoot. Carson was more interested in scouring the stones for jellyfish and such so I got plenty of interaction shots of brother and sister. Natalia was willing to ‘pose on command’ and showed off her cute smile. I managed to catch fleeting smiles of Carson on the run. Mom felt glad that we got this session done in time for the holidays….yes the holidays! Can you say ‘christmas cards!’.

Off to college so one last family photo

Lifechanging moments are usually a good time to catch up with family photos. Maddie is off to college in the next couple weeks son mom decided to gather everyone up. Their casual, relaxed style of living made for cool backdrops around the house. Even let the dog get up on the couch for once!  And I couldn’t resist an artsy fartsy shot of Maddie in grandma’s chair. Wonder which of the boys gets Maddie’s old room?

Oh! Henry….

Parents always wonder why I don’t take time to gather information like name, address, serial number before we begin our sessions.. Answer is simple – when kids are involved the first few minutes are crucial.  Henry was smiling and there was no time to waste! We got some great shots before he decided it was time for a nap…
