Continuing with my “session groups” to help my blogging efforts, here’s TWO “In My Backyard” sessions from last fall!

My backyard has quickly become one of my favorite portrait spots. Yes, it’s just steps from my house and very convenient, but it’s also private and beautiful (especially in the fall)! There’s plenty of grass, lots of trees, open space within the woods…it’s really been an awesome space for my family and a blessing for JFP!

I met Ashley at MOPS in Morgantown. I believe it was through a friend of a friend, and now we’re super good friends! Anytime I have a baby concern or want to have a play date, I text her (and Sara, too…we’re a trio!). It was so nice having she and her three boys over for a session. Davis, the newest member of the family, was only a month old. And, in true Garrett County fashion, it was cold (45 degrees maybe?). But these four were troopers! Cold hands, cold noses…they didn’t care! It was all about having fun and getting some updated family portraits. 🙂

This portrait made it on their Christmas card! I love when clients use their pictures on Christmas cards! 🙂

Fun fact: That blanket isn’t actually a blanket. It’s a handmade tablecloth I got while studying Spanish in Mexico seven years ago! The colors are PERFECT for fall portraits!

Please notice Ashley’s face in this one. Just smiling, normally, as her son hangs upside down by his feet. It’s like this happens often at home or something!? 😉

After the session, I treated Ashley and her family to a home-cooked meal! And we took some quick portraits of Mr. Davis since he was finally awake!

Next fall session…the Hubers family! They’re from the eastern side of Maryland, but frequent Garrett County for weekend getaways and vacation. They came into town in October and wanted to take advantage of the beautiful foliage for updated family portraits! I’m so glad I was able to squeeze them in on the calendar…

We were at Miss Dylan’s mercy most of the session. She definitely had a mind of her own and wanted to explore…

Wherever Dylan went, we followed! She sat on a rock, mom and dad sat with her. Whatever we could do for some nice family portraits!

My Ally kindly let Dylan borrow her pink chair. 🙂

Dylan was getting a little tired of taking pictures, so Dad tried cheering her up for just a few more…

Fall was so beautiful in Garrett County and our backyard last year…I cannot wait to see what this year’s season will bring! But first, let’s enjoy spring and summer, and all the warmth that hopefully lies ahead! Happy Tuesday…and Happy Spring!
