Barn Sessions – Morrison House

Fall 2016 was a busy time for Fleur Foto Photography. I was blessed to capture so many families, dancers & babies. Some of my favorite sessions, however, were the Barn Sessions held at the gorgeous Morrison House in Londonderry, NH.  This is such a perfect location that I had many families travel quite a distance for their Barn Sessions. Londonderry is my home town and there are so many great photography locations on my doorstep, all with differing feels and backgrounds.  I will definitely be offering these Barn Sessions again for the Fall of 2017 – make sure you don’t miss out on your spot!

I’d like you to meet this gorgeous family!

No, they are not signed with a modeling agency yet….but I think that they should definitely consider it!

This family of five are simply the best – Christian has his hands full with his energetic sisters.  He enjoys playing baseball and hockey.  His team, the Southern NH Cavaliers have just ended a hugely successful year with team trophies and great league placements!  Sophia is the middle sister and she reminds me of a Hollywood film star – can you tell which one I am thinking of?  Last but not least, is Savannah.  This little darling loves to draw and is a budding ballerina!  She also gives the absolutely BEST hugs!

It’s not hard to figure out where the kids get their good looks!  Mom and dad are stunners in their own rights!

The Morrison House is the perfect backdrop for my Barn Sessions.  To have such a wonderful location locally is so fantastic!  I love the color of the red barn!

Family portrait sessions with Fleur Foto Photography are lots of fun!  I let the kids be the stars of the show and interact together.  These produce the best and most authentic shots!

I’ll put my bets down now that Sophia is headed for an acting career.  You saw her here first, folks!

Can you believe that this family had never had family portraits before this?  Now the tradition has been kicked off, I look forward to capturing them every year!

Right next to the Morrison House is Mack’s Apples.  You don’t have to travel far to have a great variety of shots during my Barn Sessions.  Want a little orchard and greenery?  No problem!

During my family sessions, I make sure that there is a great variety of groupings – each parent with each child, family shots, sibling shots and parent shots.

Fall Limited Edition Session | Family Portraits

I am taking a quick break from editing sessions to blog a great Fall Limited Edition Session from last year. The setting for these Fall family portraits was the gorgeous Beaverbrook Association in Hollis NH. If you’ve never been to Beaverbrook, I highly recommend it at any time of the year. There are so many great trails to walk and wonderful wildlife to see and experience.  Back to this session!  I held a series of Fall Limited Edition Session family portraits in the Fall of last year. These were mini-versions of my sessions with a special package and pricing and boy were they a huge success! Fall is such a popular time for photography. The lovely changing colors of the trees in New England provide the most perfect backdrop. Of course, the upcoming holiday season is always a great excuse to update your family portraits.

This particular family had been in need of an update on their family portraits for a while. It had been 13 years since they had their family portraits taken (since Matthew was a baby!).

You wouldn’t have known that they weren’t used to being in front of the camera, though.  They were so natural and you could plainly see that they were a fun-filled family.

A portrait session with Fleur Foto Photography is always a fun time and I think you can see that this family had a blast!  I love getting to know my clients well so that I can ensure that their session is a perfect reflection of who they are.  With a shorter timeframe of a Fall Limited Edition Session, that could have posed a challenge.  However, that was definitely not a problem.  I immediately clicked with this family and got to know them really well during our short time together.

Michelle used to be a hockey player and was quite accomplished at the sport. I have subsequently seen photos of her playing years!  She now owns horses which she keeps on her property. Her husband, Andrew, is from England, so being a Brit myself, we immediately hit it off and shared stories and experience of the ex-pat life.

Matthew is a hockey player and has just finished his first year at the Bantam level for the Southern NH Cavaliers.  He is also a competitive gymnast at Gym Village of Amherst, NH where is a level 6 gymnast.  Yes, he could also pursue a career in modeling, as you can see.

Our session was so much fun, none of us wanted it to end. I am so pleased that this family now has updated portraits and wall art from this session in their family room. I look forward to the opportunity to capturing them again soon!
