The first photo is a winner! Sometimes I step back and let the kids do their thing, and boy was I rewarded with this one! The group hug and the smiles and the fun and love it conveys really come through. I love how the purple and grays the children are wearing draw out those colors from the rich fall palette in the background. This spot in Horseshoe Lake Park in Shaker Heights, OH is one of my favorite spots for family photo sessions! The soft lighting of golden hour adds such a beautiful glow to the images, allowing the children to shine together with the beautiful scenery.
