Fall photography is like nothing I ever expected. I had no clue that I would get so many calls to do family photos in the leaves. Nor did I ever pay attention to when the leaves started to change colour each year. Then again this whole photography thing has made me open my eyes to a lot of things I never paid attention to. Like the direction of the sun, hight of trees, shade, shadows, foliage, randomly parked cars, rocks… you get the picture. Just went through life with my eyes half open. My mother used to see the beauty in the leaves and nature but I just thought she was crazy. ‘It’s just a tree’ I would say when she would name them. Most famous tree of all was the Christo’fur’ tree. If you don’t get it… just think a little harder.
When Lorysa said her family was going to be in town and she wanted to book her session it was still summer. She wanted a fall time slot. No problem I thought. My schedule is wide open. Good thing she contacted me early because the closer it got the more calls that came in. I didn’t realize how popular fall was for family sessions.
I love shooting families. Dynamics are so different and you never know if your going to get a close knit family or one that smiles because I told them to. Not the Rossnagles. These guys were fun and willing to try anything. I just love that. Oh and when I say get close they snuggle right in. Wish all all families were this close! I walked away from this session with a big smile on my face.
