fall family photos in shaver with olive green outfits

The Farrell’s are expecting baby number two soon, so we captured some photos while they’re still a family of three! And let’s just take a moment to appreciate how stylish little Maisyn looks – I wish I had been that well dressed when I was a little girl. It’s so fun capturing families in all of lifes precious milestones. This season is so fleeting in weather, and in life, so what better time to capture moments than with photos in a fall family session.

Fall family sessions are my favorite; the colors, the weather, the outfits – it’s all so beautiful! I love capturing this fleeting season, beautiful families and all the love this season of life offers. Fresno is such a short drive away from Shaver Lake, and there’s so much variety hidden in the hills just above our little valley. It’s the perfect escape for a fall family session.

This sweet family made the drive, and it was so worth it! These photos are a sweet reminder of life in these moments with their little girl by their side. Her smiles, their laughs and the pure joy they feel as they anticipate the arrive of their new babe is such a blessing to capture. I am so grateful for the families who trust me to capture their lives, their milestones and their memories.

I love that sweet shot of mom and dad giving their baby girl kisses! How cute is her little smile – seriously I can hear her baby giggles just by looking at these photos. Getting kiddos to laugh and smile isn’t easy, but I’ve had lots of practice. Once we warmed up, she was all smiles and a few silly faces, too!

Fall Family Session | Farrell Family

Dutton Ranch Inspired is literally the way I would describe this engagement session with Joseph & Rachel! As much as I love shooting at my usual locations and creating unique photos for our clients, it’s especially fun when we get to explore private ranches and spaces for a session. It offers a level of uniqueness […]
