Family Photos Morrison House Londonderry

I am excited to share some more Fall Family Photos from this session last year at the Morrison House in Londonderry NH. Being in Londonderry, I am fortunate to be located in Londonderry and literally have some of the best locations available to me. I had scouted this location a few times prior to this session and knew instantly when Kristi booked her family photos with me that it would give us a phenomenal backdrop for her pictures.

Kristi shared with me that they had not had family photos done previously, but that didn’t stop her entire family being pros during their session.  As with all my sessions, we discussed the location and also wardrobe choices, but Kristi that that well under control.  When the family arrived, I couldn’t help but give them full marks for their co-ordinated outfits!

We started the session out at he old Blacksmith’s Shop on the Morrison House property.  The museum was closed when we shot, but we made full use of the very cool old iron wheel that leans against the shop.  I loved highlighting each child in this series of shots.

Next it was time for mom and dad’s starring moment. Aren’t these two just adorable? You really get a feeling of just how close and how much fun they have together.  As a side note, Scott reminds me so much of my brother (who also happens to be named Scott).  I think I might just adopt him as such!

What can I say about Abby?  Wow, if this girl wasn’t made to be in front of the camera!  She thoroughly enjoyed her solo shots and needed very little direction from me.

This young man is just adorable in every sense of the word! As you can see, we had a good laugh together and he gave me some really genuine smiles.  My goal for all my sessions is that every has a great time.  I want my clients to be relaxed and let their personalities shine through.

Little Allie was a delight  – I can’t think of a better way to describe her.  She rocked those boots and leggings and who can resist that dimpled grin?

Sisters, sisters, there were never such devoted sisters.  Ok, did I just age myself terribly?  Who knows which movie that song is from?

As the sun got low in the sky, we got some amazing shots at the barn door.  This is an impressive building and that golden hour sun gave the perfect Autumn glow.

The perfect thing about this location is that steps away is Mack’s Apples orchard.  The apples weren’t ready for picking quite yet but that didn’t stop us from having fun in the rows of trees.

I just love this series of Kristie with her oldest – you can really tell they have a fabulous relationship.  You’re doing it right, Kristi!

Seeing these images of Allie again reminds me of her giggling!  What a fun kid!

Yeah, so boys have no interest in posing for the camera…but my sessions are not about that – they are about showing your true personality and I think you can really get a sense of Teddy here.

I think this cheeky shot of Scott and Kristi is my favorite from the entire session.  I just adore it!

I love getting a good variety of grouping in these sessions. It seems like dads don’t often seem to get featured with their kids much, so we made sure we didn’t miss these shots.

Sometimes for family photos, I ask you to climb a tree, or just lie on the grass. You never can tell!

Yup – Abby was quite taken with being a photographer’s model. It seems like someone needs her own Tween Photo Session soon!!!

The sun finally set on our session and we wrapped up these family photos; we had a thoroughly great time together.

Sunflower Session | Londonderry NH Family Photography

I thought I’d kick off the great blog catch up of 2017 with this fantastic sunflower session that took place during the Fall of 2016. This session is special to me for many reasons. Do you know how life can take unexpected twists and turns, yet you look back and see how wonderful things come from one event? That’s my story with this family sunflower session.

When Keri contacted me asking if I would be available to capture her family, I was honored. You see Keri is a fellow photographer and she suffers the same fate as many photographers out there.  She is constantly behind the camera yet barely ever in pictures with her gorgeous boys. However, Keri was determined to change that and get in the picture with her husband Nick and sons, Tyler and Travis. While planning her family session, Keri jumped at my suggestion of a sunflower field for these important images.

Not only is this family adorably gorgeous, they are both self-employed.  Nick also runs his own business – if you need work done on your house – you can’t beat him and his team from My Pro Property Services.

Have you ever seen such a happy, smiley baby? Little Travis is the apple of his parent’s eyes and a snuggle monster. I took full advantage of his happy disposition and sneaked in a few hugs myself.

What can I say about the Ty-man? We had a great time chasing through the sunflower fields. He also let me catch some candid moments of him. This one of him opening the lollipop is one of my favorites from the session. Yes, candy will be used as a bribe when necessary.

From the moment I met Keri and her family, we clicked! She and Nick are such fun people and so great to work with. Yes, photographing a photographer and her family makes for an easier session than others. Keri knew exactly how to dress her family for the occasion and of course could use her own tricks for getting the boys to “pose” for the camera. I love the shots of Ty in the sunflower rows especially. Getting down on his level and running through the flowers was great fun!

A little preview of a fantastic shot to come – you think this shot of Ty despairing of the kissing is funny? Just wait and see.

If ever a photo captured Keri’s personality, I’d wager it was this one! Never flustered and always finding the humor in the moment.

Fleur Foto Photography sessions are all about having fun. No matter if it’s a family portrait session, a senior session or another genre, my main goal is that everyone has a good time.  Good times make for great, genuine smiles.

I loved it when Keri pulled out her sweet sunflower headband. Does this girl know how to dress for the occasion or what? Ty’s pure joy at being swung in the air by his parents delights me!

Yes, when I said we have fun during family sessions, I was serious.  I remember being a kid and being swung around like this. The resulting dizziness  is hard to beat while you are laughing like crazy. Family fun times and sweet memories are made this way.

As I alluded to earlier, this session is so special to me. Not only did we spend a fun evening together in the sunflower fields, I made some lovely new friends in the process. I am honored to have captured Keri and her family more than once now; we also actively work together. Community over competition is my motto! I am so happy in the past year to have met and befriended many local photographers. It is an honor to work with you and to support each other. Keri – thanks for being a great friend! With that, like Ty, I’ll bring this sunflower session to a close.
