Fall family photo session pumpkin farm

I just love fall family photo sessions at pumpkin farms and cider mills.  While I've settled in Clarkston, MI, I wonder to PA quite a bit. Last time  there I loved the Schramm Farms. Hay bales painted as beloved cartoon characters, corn maze, petting zoo and treat stands for parents and kids alike. Recently they have expanded and added bakery and even  winery. While the weather did not look that promising for a fall family photo shoot, we brought a blanket for little sisters to sit on, and luckily it only started to drizzle when we were about to leave. While photographing families, I try to get a few shots of just the parents. I find that parents are the pillars of the family, and sometimes in all the years raising kids, showing of their accomplishments and documenting memories, there are no photos of just the couple. Showing their love and commitment not just to their kids, but also to each other is great memory to capture.

Some of the most precious memories are the ones in a quiet moment next to the photo shoot, and I love when I'm able to notice them and capture them

I just love that feeling, when I capture a special moment of precious little babies. Their first smiles, and very small fingers and precious little toes. They are filled with so much potential, just like a little acorn holding a whole oak tree inside. They will grow to change the world, influence people around them and experience bouquet of emotions. Yet at this time they are helpless, needing their parents presence and love, these babies will be shaped in their character by influences around them, by examples set by their parents, by peers and the world
