Fall Photo Favorite...

 Its getting to be that time of year when we take fall photos. In fact I think its officially Fall now.   I wanted to share with you one of my MOST FAVORITE photos ever.  

I know I have a lot of favorites and you will probably see me say that about a lot of my photos, but this one melts my heart.  When we had our 4th child Ava, we needed to do a photo shoot with her for our Christmas card.  I remember loading them all up and heading to the park to take the shots.  

I also remember how excited all my older kids were about Ava.  Each of them wanted to hold her for the picture.  When we started the photo shoot, I realized something, my older kids were HUGE compared to this tiny baby, where would I put her so she would show up?

Then I had this idea and I'll forever be grateful for this inspiration....  I had the older kids lay on their tummies and scoot super close to each other and then we put baby Aves on top!

Awwww, I love how it turned out!  I shot this photo session in the middle of the park.  It was a sunny day, I shot with my 50mm portrait lens. I set my aperture very low to blur out the back ground, draw the focus to the kids and let the reflection on the ground light up their faces.  

I just love her big flower on her head!

I also like this setting, and I like how the one tree with orange leaves in the background pulls out of the photo to connect with Ava's orange sweater in the shot too.  

I can't believe how young my older kids look in these photos.  Wow time really does fly.

In this shot I told the kids to look at Ava as best they could without losing their compostion.  I just love her big chumpy cheeks and how focused she was on her hands...

Happy Fall photos everyone,

Thanks for letting me share,

With Much Love & Gratitude,
