Fall in Massachusetts can be a finicky time of year. There is no way to pinpoint when the best and brightest foliage will happen. Families ask every year when the “best” date is and it’s impossible to know! This Fall was no exception. With an unusually warm October, the leaves were *just* starting to change mid-October for this family’s photoshoot.
You may remember the R Family from their in-home lifestyle newborn session this Spring. It was so exciting to see baby G as a 6 month old with loads of personality and a lot more hair! I’ve mentioned a couple times in the past that my preferred timeframe to photograph families outdoors is at golden hour. However, I do make exceptions for my clients. Even though this Mama loved the idea of sunset pictures, she just felt her boys would do better in the morning. Sometimes that happens and I am happy to accommodate an early morning session. The Grist Mill in Sudbury is an ideal spot for a Fall morning shoot because it has loads of tall trees and open shade to block the harsher sun rays.
As I scrolled through this family’s photographs and selected some for this post, I smiled from ear to ear. I feel their session demonstrates exactly what I strive for in all of my family sessions. There was playing, running, smiling and laughing, leaf throwing, and a whole lot of little boy snuggling. We got really lucky with the weather as well! It was warm, but not too warm and the overcast skies helped to naturally filter that morning light. This was also the first weekend that truly started to look like Fall in Massachusetts with the vine leaves and trees starting to show color.

"To say that I love each one would be cliche and a total understatement, but seriously... She nailed it. Being a photographer myself, I am very picky and searched dozens of photographers before coming back to lyndsay and booking her and I am so glad I did. I can't even remember the last time I hired a photographer and was this in love with the images and unable to pick just a few favorites. Thank you, lyndsay, for making the photo session easy (with 3 kids), fun and providing this mama memories for a lifetime.”
"Our images are so special and really captured our joy and the sweet personality of our little girl. Lyndsay did a great job going beyond the typical posed shots and making our photos feel authentic. We will treasure them forever."
