Fall is one of my favorite seasons … when it doesn’t rain every day. Can I get an amen Charlotte? I love the bold colors and the cooler temperatures. I love when seasonal smells fill the air – fire places, pinecones and apple cider. I love the excitement leading up to the holidays. But the thing I love most about Fall is getting to meet so many awesome families. I’m an extrovert, so while it’s one of my busiest times of year, it’s also one of my most energizing. What I love least about Fall is not having enough time to share these amazing family photo sessions in real time. But that’s ok because some of my clients prefer to keep select pictures secret until after the holidays. First, there’s the thrill of mailing an unseen holiday card. It’s real; I love a good holiday card unveiling. Second, new pictures make great holiday gifts for relatives. So big shares will have to wait. For now, here’s a sneak peek at the recent family photography fun we were having until the rain so rudely interrupted us and then wouldn’t go away. Translation: Go away rain so the fun can commence.
