I just love when a family "gets it" when they come to one of my sessions. They came prepared to play- picnic packed, classic books to read with the kids, and were totally cool with spinning and playing with their little ones in the deep meadow of goldenrod. This location is one of my favorite places at this time of year. The deep color from the goldenrod hints at the fall leaves about to turn. While summer flowers have mostly died from the heat elsewhere, this field is very much alive. We discovered caterpillars and butterflies, the children picked flowers and ran through the mowed paths. Loved this session and this family with all my heart.
We are wrapping up summer by crossing off another tradition from the bucket list- peach picking at Bob White Acres in Coopersburg, PA. We love all the different varieties of peaches they have available, and the kids love the neat basket wagons they have as well as the apple cider slushies served up at the little farm stand afterwards!
Peaches are only $1.05/lb for more than 20 pounds, and they are quick and easy to pick! I now have about 35 pounds of peaches to deal with, but they sure are delicious! Tastes like the end of summer! I wish these last two weeks of summer vacation would last forever, but we'll freeze lots of sliced peaches so we can enjoy a little taste of our favorite season in the dead of winter.
If you are interested in my documentary style of portraiture, I'd love to work with you to document your end-of summer fun! My schedule is getting tight but I have a few days available :)
I am so excited to launch my Childhood Unplugged Sessions to document children in nature. I want to capture children at play, exploring, discovering, wondering, taking awe at their natural environment. These are fun sessions that we will style together, choose a location that is comfortable for the family and children's ages, and get out together with our rain boots and play clothes on! Children have a natural curiosity and these sessions allow them freedom to engage in nature without worrying about performing or posing for the camera. If you are a family that enjoys the outdoors, please consider booking a child or family session with me to capture this amazing connection with nature. I have so many great locations in mind for these and we are lucky to live in an area filled with natural playgrounds.
Childhood unplugged sessions last about one hour, preferably shot the hour before sundown.
