Columbus Day was beautiful and sunny and there was a slight autumnal chill in the air. It was photo day for the Crocker Family and we chose the quieter area behind the Historic Wayside Inn, Sudbury to have our fall photo session. The area behind the Wayside Inn is quite hidden away and even people who have lived in Sudbury for a number of years, don't realize it is there. If you enjoy fly fishing, the small pond has some nice size trout in it too!
This was the first time the family had booked a professional photography session. They were all very relaxed and enjoyed their first family shoot together. I don't think anyone would argue that they look great together.
The children's families outfits were really well matched, which always makes for great photos. We found this little spot by the pond where the late afternoon sunlight was streaming through the trees and the grey barn in the background balanced nicely with the color of the childrens clothing.
I always include candid photos during a family photo shoot. I like to capture the family walking together. Its a great opportunity for the family to relax away from the camera for a while too. I ran out ahead and had them walking toward me, while I used my long lens from a distance to capture these natural moments.
Their dog, Andy is such a sweet, friendly dog and really completes the family. I love how the picture above came out. It was exactly how I wanted to capture their special family bond.
Late afternoon is my favorite time to take photos. The light is at its best and at this time of the year, when sunlight streams through the autumnal colors, its spectacular...
We are very lucky to live in such a beautiful area and the fall season in Sudbury MA offers great opportunities to have family photos taken. Wayside Inn is a very popular place to have photos too.
I really appreciated the opportunity to provide my photography services to this lovely family in Sudbury and we were all happy with the way the photos came out.
