As expected, fall was busy with portrait sessions. I had a nice mixture of newborn, maternity, engagement and family portraits during the season, and that’s what you’ll see in today’s “session groups” blog post!

All three of these sessions took place in West Virginia in October and the first two are actually connected! Mom Julie, who you’ll see first, is mom Amy’s sister, who you’ll see in the second set of pictures. Amy gifted her sister a newborn session and also signed up for her own maternity and newborn session at the same time. Such a sweet gift from a sister, and it was so neat getting to know both of the ladies.

First up, Luna’s newborn portraits…and a furry friend who wanted to be included just as much as baby! πŸ™‚

On guard! I think Luna is going to have more than a set of parents looking after her in that house! πŸ™‚

A diaper wreath! I had never seen one before! Ladies sure to get creative for baby showers these days. πŸ™‚

Luna slept very little during the session, but that was okay because she was quite content…

Luna was the first to use my latest photography prop find…this beautiful quilt that I found at a local church bazaar for $35! Such a steal, and so pretty.

Luna finally fell asleep at the very end of the session…

This is Amy! Isn’t she a stunning mama-to-be! Her son was born in January, so I’ve also already done her newborn session. (But look for that in a post later this month) For now, we’ll show off her beautiful smile and baby bump!

The sun started to come out as soon as we got to this bridge (part of Valley Falls State Park in Fairmont, WV) and it made the perfect glow for this next series of portraits…

Black and white or color? I could not decide.

I also decided to whip out the 70-200 2.8 L lens for these portraits and am SO GLAD I did! Look at that creaminess…and the bokeh! If you have this lens and don’t use it for portraits, give it a try! And if you’re looking for a new portrait lens, give it a try! πŸ™‚

These next two are BIG TIME favorites! I love the connection between Derrick and Amy, the colors, the light, the creaminess and the bokeh…

And third for this blog post, the Olgers family! The last time I photographed them they were early in their marriage with no kiddos. Now they have Hunter and just built a home together. I wonder what will be next for them!?! πŸ˜‰

Coopers Rock was looking good that day! Lots of pretty leaves and sunshine! And the plaid quilt makes another appearance! It’s definitely a must-bring for my sessions.
