Fall Family Fun Photos…I shoot people.

Fall is a great time for family portraits. Though I’m more likely to be photographing foliage or pumpkins this time of year, shooting people can be fun. The crisp blue sky, vibrant harvested fruit and gourds, and the autumn leaves as a backdrop, I dare you to get yourself to an orchard and NOT take photos.

 

So I was thrilled that my friend Rich asked me to shoot his family at an orchard and pumpkin farm just a few miles out of town. I was familiar with Treworgy’s in Levant, Maine. Every other year or so for the past few years, I’d taken my daughter to pick apples, work our way through the corn maze, and probably end up with more pumpkins in the trunk than we have room for at home.

 

This day, a few weeks ago, had originally been forecaster to be dreary and rainy. Cloudy would be fine, but rain would force this shoot to be rescheduled, though I knew that Rich’s daughter and son in law would be leaving mid week and our busy days could deter this family portrait for another time. The weather turned out perfect for this. Too sunny almost (did I just say that?).

 

Here are some of my favorites from the day.  Enjoy!
