Trevor, Lindsey and family met me at the East Side’s Riverside Park to embark on a nature walk style family portrait session. Let’s be real, kids don’t love to stand still looking at a camera and cheesin’. So I prefer to encourage an activity that documents the joy of childhood (and familyhood…is that even a word? Well, I deem it one now.) while still squeezing in a few of those quintessential portraits that are always favorites. The mosquitoes may have been thick this humid spring morning, but we managed to get a little tree climbing in and artifact finding before we were eaten alive. So I’ll use this time to remind myself and you (if you’re considering any type of outdoor shoot) to bring sunblock, bug repellent, SNACKS!, and water. Can’t wait to make socially distant photos with you this 2020 season.
