The Posillico Family contacted me late summer interested in a family session for the fall. They hadn’t had family pictures done since their wedding five years ago, and since their baby was a fur baby, she was worried if I would even be interested in doing the session. On the contrary, I was super excited about it as I figured it would be a fun, easy session to do in the middle of the fall craziness.
The Norma Johnson Center down in Dover is probably one of my favorite places for sessions, but with a good 45+ minute drive each way, it’s one I save and only use on occasion. Between the barn, the pond, and the endless field of wildflowers there are so many colors and textures to play with. When Emma filled out her questionnaire and kept picking picture after picture at this very location, I knew they would be the perfect ones to use it for. They really wanted something rustic and fall like and I think it was the beautiful backdrop for their session.
There were so many things I loved about this session. These two were so playful and fun with each other in a way I loved. The little expressions I got here and there I’m guessing are pretty normal ways they interact with each other at home. I loved they brought the quilt that their Grandma had handstitched for their pictures. It added a personal touch and that little bit of sentimental value to their pictures. And while the light didn’t cooperate that night, I ended up loving it even more because it meant we got such deep, rich tones instead which complimented the location well. And of course, what I love the most is the connection in these pictures, cuddling, slow dancing, taking walks (something they do often at home), laughing, kissing. At the end of every session, I always check to see if there are any pictures we didn’t get, and John’s idea was one of them cuddled up overlooking the field with all the fall trees in the distance. The sky was so beautiful and it ended up being one of my favorites (good idea, John!). Scroll down to see some of the pictures from their session.
