I have so many families that come back to me year after year, and rather than spending time at the beginning of the session getting to know them a bit (& letting them feel comfortable with me), we can just dive right in with the photos. And I can joke with them and catch up on their lives (like giving Pete a hard time in order to get at least a slight grin out of him :)
I've been photographing the Marthey family since the boys were super little, and they are always so easy and fun to have in front of my camera (not to mention their session took all of about 20 minutes, because they were just that easy to photograph).
We met up at the Akron College Campus in Orrville, and there were some of the most beautiful fall colors there for a backdrop . . .
