Fall Photo Session, Van Hoosen Farm

Here are some images from a fun fall photo session!  We met up at Van Hoosen Farm in Rochester.  I always find fun, new spots here.  The kids and I hit it off right away as we picked out our favorite spots.  We even found some new areas together, like the spot on the big log in one of my favorite photos.  They danced on rocks, had a pretend bonfire and shared some sweet moments, like when Ben tried to plant a big kiss on Lexi’s cheek!  Lots of laughs were had that day.   I loved every minute of the session – I hope you can tell.  I look forward to more photo sessions with this family and as well as seeing them around town, as they continue to settle into Michigan.

I love making family photo sessions fun!  I like to connect with the kids and chat about what they are into these days.  It’s great to have some times for the kids to warm up and get comfortable if they need it.  Good thing I’m well versed in everything from La-la-Loopsy to American Girl and Thomas the Train to Minecraft!  Before our session we’ll have a consultation where I get to know what you are looking for in a family photo session.  We can talk about what-to-wear, what to expect and how things work after your session.  In-person ordering sessions are great since I can bring product samples to your home and help with any thing from an album for Grandparents to a custom designed wall collection.  Find out how a session with pArt of Life Photography can work for you!
