I had the pleasure of meeting Will and Clare at a pumpkin patch for a wonderful autumn session. Every year as the temperature begins to fall and the leaves change, my love and appreciation for this season overcomes me. Although it means the calendar year is coming to a close, fall somehow feels more like a beginning than an end and always seems so full of potential. Fall brings a new school year and gently eases us into the craziness of the holiday season. It is a good time to tackle a new project or to cuddle up and reflect. It is also a good time for pumpkin patches.

These two have such a sweet and caring relationship. Will looks out for his little sister and Clare looks up to her big brother.

Their mom prefaced the session by saying that she rarely takes out her camera and that she and her husband were long overdue for some pictures of their kids. She also said it might be a challenge to get them both together, smiling. Something about the pumpkin patch did the trick.

Our visit ended with snacks, smiles, and of course a wagon full of pumpkins! Thank you for a delightful session. I hope you have a very happy Halloween!
