Fall family photo session in the leaves in Connecticut

This family of five had a perfect day for a Fall family photo session in Newtown, CT. Since we were rained out on the original date, the pressure was on for good weather and even though the sun was not bright, it was a beautiful morning to take photos. Bright sunshine is not always the best scenario for great family photos.
Since this is a family of nature-lovers and hikers, we picked a location that matched their personality—the lovely park called The Pleasance in Newtown and the adjacent historic Ram’s Pasture. Since this family has recently relocated from the South, they wanted family photos that captured a real New England autumn-y feel. They were totally at ease during this family photo session, goofing around and playing in the leaves.
This family was so easy to photograph—they were quick to let loose and have fun! Mom and dad were both down with my philosophy that the best family photos don’t show “picture perfect” smiles and poses. The best family photos show emotion and affection between family members, which these clearly do. That takes a lot of pressure off. Love is all you need. ❤
