Two days before Hurricane Sandy stormed in and ripped all the beautiful colors out of the trees, it was a beautiful fall day, comfortable temperature and leaves screaming color. Little did we know, this was going to be the last day of the Fall colors, so Im even more happy that we shot at a new location, Redbank Battlefield in National Park. Redbank Battlefield was a perfect location for a Fall family photo shoot, which was evident from the moment we pulled into the parking lot and seen another photo shoot already in progress. There were so many trees in the park that were lit up with Fall colors it was hard deciding on where to start. We spent about an hour just walking around, shooting in a few different spots in the park, letting the 2 boys have fun playing in the leaves in between each stop for family shots.
After wrapping up at the battlefield, we drove down to the family farm, stopping on the way to pick up 5 bales of hay to use on the next shoot. Our long time friends Kristen and Casey brought their beautiful daughter Ava over and after a few minutes of letting her warm up to us, we were able to get some great candid shots of her with the fall colors as a backdrop.
Here are a few of our favorite shots from each shoot that day. We would have loved to have had the awesome colors you see in these two shoots last just another week for our big Batsto Day, our multi-family shoot, but we lucked out and there were still enough leaves hanging on at the village to make for some great shots for each family. I plan on getting the post processing of the Batsto shots started tonight, so you should start seeing them being posted within a couple days. The Batsto Day was a huge success and we had an awesome day with everyone. We got some really great shots that Im looking forward to posting up and sharing with everyone.
