Knox Farm State Park in East Aurora is a great rustic location for family portraits. There is a wide variety of areas to work in as well. Possibilities are endless there.
This family session was actually a first birthday cake smash. This was at the beginning of the shoot. We always do some basic family portraits to start off. This cutie wanted to be involved just as much as her brother who was turning one. It was her turn in the spot light first.
We have done many family portraits for this family. We love them. This cutie is a joy to photograph. She has gorgeous blue eyes and golden curly hair! She always comes dressed to the nines! She had to have her pearls and bow for rustic outdoor portraits. Her personality was definitely showing in this image.
Kids are always unpredictable when being in photos. Sometimes they are happy. Sometimes they cry. Sometimes they plain out do not want to be in pictures. We just have to go with the flow and not force anything, Fortunately, for this family, they are all photogenic and love the camera!
From here we moved onto the cake smash session with her baby brother. There were some hay bails and we ended up using those for a back drop! Super country and fun style session!
