A few weekends ago, before the leaves had finished falling and this seemingly interminable cold wetness descended, I had a delightful afternoon shooting family portraits for a former coworker at Ayr Mount* in Hillsborough. My coworker P, along with his wife K and their kids A & A, wanted to update their family portrait, as it had been a few years since their last one. I must say these are my favorite kind of shoots. I love getting to know the family members, and the process of getting them to loosen up in front of the camera. Although it was very easy with P’s beautiful family – even their dog, W, seemed to be a natural model! Here are some favorites:
*Just a heads up, though Ayr Mount is a fantastically beautiful place to take photos, if they see you there with a professional camera, they will charge you $50 for using their grounds for a photo session. Seems it’s a relatively new policy for them but they are enforcing it universally.
