So what if I'm six months behind in posting my last fall session? A tropical storm is on its way out of town today, which seems like an appropriate time to share this rainy family shoot—one of my favorites from last year.
Something I love about having a photography business is connecting with other families. This session was special for several reasons, and it was such an honor to reacquaint with a college friend and get to know her family while taking their portraits. They live right in the middle of a quaint college town and spend a lot of time walking along this wall, so she thought it would make for a memorable backdrop. Boy was she right. The brick, the moss, the leaves and her sweet, smiley little boy make quite an impression, don't you think?
