Back in November, I met up with Jessica and Matt to make some Fall family portraits of them and their 1-year-old daughter Cora during their Toddler Fall Family Portraits.
I made maternity photos of Jessica a while back and now that Cora had been born, she and Matt wanted to get their first family photos for their Christmas cards. We headed over to Beall Park near their house in Bozeman where we took advantage of the fallen fall leaves.
When photographing little kids, you tend to have brief windows of attention. Most of the time their surroundings hold their attention rather than looking into a camera. It becomes a fun game getting them to smile and look natural before their patience runs thin and they start to fuss. Cora made my job easy. She was nothing but smiles, a trait she no doubt got from her parents.
Here are some favorite photos I made during our toddler fall family portraits together. Thanks for looking, -M
