Earlier this month, I hosted my annual 30-minute fall family mini photo sessions. The Wayside Inn Grist Mill was buzzing with leaf peepers, photographers and families soaking up the warmish weather and beautiful fall foliage. Luckily, there is plenty of room to enjoy a picnic, nature walk or a portrait session at a social distance. As a portrait photographer, I am always on the lookout for outdoor places to meet my clients. This is one of my top locations for portraits! In addition to the historic grist mill, the property offers several rustic nature backdrops for pictures and that day, the October fall colors were on full display! These are some favorite shots from Erin's family session.
In this corner of the property, the late-afternoon sunlight illuminates the trees and trails along the grass. It creates this beautiful backlight and bokeh (blurry circles) in portraits.
Capturing a child's authentic smile is easy when they are having fun. I asked him to spin like a top and when he landed to give me his best smile. So cute!
Thank you for hiring me to capture these fun moments!
