I must admit that I have a true love/hate relationship with the fall. I love a good scarf and sweater. I get excited to wear my boots, and I prefer hot coffee to iced. The colors of the fall and the light of the day is magical. However, every year, I forget just how much rain falls and how unpredictable each day can be. It can start to feel impossible to capture all its glory through the wind and the rain. This year has been quite the weather challenge. It feels like the rain started the first of October and hasn’t stopped. BUT this day. This day was just perfect for this session. The color on the trees was starting to peak. The sun gave just the right amount of light and the temperature was warm enough for photos. I am so excited we got to capture this moment in time for Alexandra and Mike.
I had given Alexandra and Mike a list of locations for their photo shoot. They headed out to explore and decided on a session at Newgate, which was perfect for the day. It is a location we love but don’t get to very often. The stone walls, tall trees, and vista were a perfect backdrop. As parents, we remember the anticipation and joy surrounding the birth of our first daughter. Mike and Alexandra are also welcoming a little girl, and we can’t wait to hear all about it. We are thrilled for them and very honored that we got to document these moments for them.
