I really only photograph mini sessions once a year, so when I do, they are so special! This year’s fall mini sessions were my second round hosted in Riverside Park. The days and weeks leading up to outdoor minis always come with their own stress. When I say I was excited to photograph some incredibly sweet people in some incredibly beautiful fall foliage, that would be an understatement! BUT… as I refreshed the forecast in the days leading up, I saw chances of rain, wind (Which would do away with our gorgeous fall colors), and cold weather.
While mini sessions always come with an emergency backup plan, I was really hoping we could utilize the first plan so no one had to change their weekend around! As we inched closer to mini session day, it looked like the chances for a beautiful day were more likely than a gloomy day, so I took a risk and decided to proceed as planned!
AND WOW MOTHER NATURE DELIVERED!
I woke up to one of the last mild days we had in 2022, sunny skies, and Riverside Park in its full fall glory! I usually bundle up for sessions this time of year, but if my memory is correct, I was peeling off my layers before my first session even started! I was so grateful that the weather delivered because it made for such a smooth experience for my clients! (There’s nothing I worry about more than clients not feeling their best ESPECIALLY when we have such a short window of time together!)
I got to work with a few of the sweetest groups this year and so appreciated how different each session was! From family portraits, to updated headshots, just siblings, and fun pictures with pets, I got to have so many amazing people in front of my camera and am SO grateful for the morning (and afternoon!) times that we got to spend together.
Ready for a quick sneak into a few fall Riverside family sessions?! Keep scrolling for lots of smiles and puppy snuggles!
PS if you see any pups that appear to be off-leash, leashes are Photoshopped in post! Dogs are required to be leashed at all times during CKP sessions.
