A Late Fall Family Session For The Holiday’s

Stark Park in Manchester, New Hampshire

I’ve known these sweet kids’ mom, Julia, for forever, since she’s also one of my older sister’s long time best friends!!! Julia’s oldest baby girl is roughly the same age as my daughter, and it’s just crazy to me how much time flies when you have littles.

The last time I got to take photos of this sweet family was about two years ago! And the last time we didn’t have their youngest daughter, who is literally the sweetest addition EVER!!!! Her beautiful eyes I just can’t get enough of!! The three of them together are just incredible. Their adorable little smiles, their outgoing little personalities… it was just so much fun.

Despite how chilly it was during their session, they were such troopers!! We played some red light, green light to get their bodies moving, and Julia and Dan were smart and brought some super cozy blankets to warm up in! Though the leaves of this fall season were all fallen and nearly gone, we still had some fun tossing what was left on the ground around, in between tickle fights of course.

The kid’s little outfits and the stuffed bears were all made from Julia’s grandfather’s old shirts, which were beautifully crafted and fit the holiday card theme so well. It was a sweet little touch, and I am just so thrilled with how these portraits came out!!

Thank you Julia and Dan for meeting with me and letting me get some new photos for you!!! I hope to do it again real soon ❤️
