Despite Mother Nature’s mood swings, we are making magic!

AMP_1046There’s just something about a beautiful fall golden hour session that warms my heart. It could be the glorious colors the trees display. Maybe it’s the chill in the air that makes families snuggle a little closer. Maybe it’s just the way the golden outline of the sun tricks you into thinking the subjects were much warmer than they were! Whatever the case, they’re my (and most others’) favorite!

I am always on the lookout for new places to shoot, so per usual, I showed up to Squaw Creek in Marion early to scout it out. What do I see? Marshy, muddy land, and a spattering of photographers chasing the sun with their subjects. Love it!


Now, when I know a kiddo is coming, I try to avoid the mud as much as possible, so AMP_1028the searching continued. While on the look out for some dry land, I looked up and saw the sun shining through the trees perfectly! That was it – I found a new spot!

My first official fall session was this mother and son duo. I always enjoy our sessions together, and each time we take photos, Zane opens up a little more and lets his personality shine brighter! This is one tough mama! You’d never know it, but she was sleep deprived when they arrived. On top of that, they had to brave the chilly weather. I’m a little biased, I suppose, but I’d say it was worth it!
