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!
