Let me stop for a second to tell you that I am seriously the luckiest photographer in the world. My clients are always so amazing to work with. That’s true of my family session with the M family, too!
We met at Veteran’s Park in Hamilton, NJ. I love shooting at Veteran’s in the fall because the leaves are gorgeous there. The walking paths are lined with trees that paint the park beautiful fall colors. They made a perfect backdrop for the M family’s portraits.
The M family consists of Chris, Nadia, and their little boy Liam who just turned 1 a few days before our shoot. So one of the main reasons for their portrait session was to celebrate Liam’s big birthday.
We started with some individual photos of the birthday boy. Then, we continued our session with some fun family photos of the three of them.
Liam was definitely the star of the day. He showed me all his smooth dance moves while Nadia played music for him. And as you can imagine, getting a one year old to stay in one place wasn’t easy to do! Liam was so curious and wanted to walk and run. He particularly loved checking out the leaves. And, of course, he wanted to pet every dog (or “bah” as he called them) that walked by.
But Liam’s birthday wasn’t the only cause for celebration. Chris and Nadia are expecting baby #2 and little Liam is preparing to be a big brother! I had such a great time photographing the M family and I can’t wait the photograph all FOUR of them next year!
