Sneak Peak: My Morning With the “S Family” at the D&R Canal in Griggstown October 20, 2008

The morning started off SUPER chilly but eventually turned out to be a beautiful fall afternoon.  Jo Ann and I met up with the “S Family” at the Griggstown, NJ portion of the D&R Canal.  I spend a lot of time photographing the canal in this area and it’s a favorite spot of mine.  I though it would be perfect for the shoot so I stopped by Wednesday to check out the area before and get some ideas.

The colors we GORGEOUS! After I stopped by on Wednesday, I was so excited the rest of the week, and couldn’t wait for Sunday to come. I knew the fall atmosphere the canal would provide would be an EXCELLENT backdrop for portraits and I was so pleased that my thoughts were correct!  It was absolutely perfect!!

Mom “C” was referred by Mom “C” of the “I Family” (from last Sunday’s shoot at Colonial Park) and what a beautiful family they were!  I loved spending time with C & M and their 3 wonderful children!

This is “B” – she was my beautiful model-slash-2nd assistant for the shoot.  She helped me to get her little brothers laugh and when it was there turn to pose.  Thanks B!  You did a great job!

He was so excited after he got to throw rocks into that canal!  This was “I won!!”

It was a great morning with a great family! We had a lot of fun and “A” even got to enjoy a pancake during the shoot!

I can’t wait to share more!
