Fall Family Photos

Happy Monday! I hope that everybody had a great weekend. It was unseasonably warm and sunny around here, so that was a major boost in my overall mood and productivity level. There’s just something about the sunshine and fresh air that sharpens my focus and renews my soul. Plus, I downloaded Lady Gaga’s new album so that was on repeat all. weekend. long. Anyways! We finally got our fall family photos back, and I am so excited to share a few of my favorites!

When we first decided to have new photos taken this year, I knew that I wanted to find a photographer that understood how to play off natural light for that dreamy, ethereal effect. I also wanted a touch of vintage, rustic flair since that fits in with our farmhouse home decor. Well, Laura from Daisy Fields Photography did not disappoint! Our photos came back exactly how I envisioned, and Laura was a breeze to work with. She made us feel incredibly comfortable, which led to some candid shots that I will forever cherish.

Finley loved his new bow tie collar! Ryan and I figured that since we got new clothes for the occasion that Finn deserved something special, too! Doesn’t he crack you up with his posture and side smile? Don’t be fooled, though. We brought a whole bag of treats that Laura’s assistant was consistently bribing him with.

As much as I love this photo, it cracks me up because Finn was tugging like crazy on his leash. It looks like he’s trying to run away from us, ha!

It doesn’t get more vintage than this mustard-color chair that Laura brought along as a prop. The chair and the rickety bridge in the woods definitely lent itself to the overall rustic vibe.

Much to Finn’s dismay, Ryan and I wanted to get a few pictures just the two of us, too. We are horrible about asking others to take our picture when we are out or away on vacation, so this was our chance for some decent photos. Ryan had me laughing the entire time, which sums up our marriage and relationship pretty well.

It was so hard to narrow down my favorite fall family photos, but these really take the cake. Now, it’s time to update all the frames around the house! If you live in the greater Milwaukee area or in northern Wisconsin, we highly recommend Laura at Daisy Fields Photography.

How often do you update your family photos?
