Black Balsam Family Portraits

From our fun September shoot on the parkway with the May Family. They had a lot to celebrate this year with baby Isla's arrival and their ten year anniversary, so we packed a picnic and headed up to the Art Loeb trail for some photos. 

Family sessions go so much smoother, especially with little ones, if there's something for them to focus on. The candid moments that capture natural smiles always make for the best photos and a much more enjoyable day :) We took our time hiking to the top of the mountain, with lots of breaks and chats about Rapunzel.

Thanks for running around the parkway with me!
