I traveled to Dunn State Park in Gardener, MA to take photos of this lovely family of five. Before our shoot, I visited the park to find the best locations for both our group and individual shots. It was a gift to explore the walking trails around the lake, and enjoy the crisp fall air. Thankfully, the rain held off so that the kids could run around, play with leaves, and climb some rocks. (Even though all of the activity did lead to some crocodile tears!) There is always a loving and joyful spirit that comes from family photo sessions, and this state park provided the perfect backdrop. I can't wait to take photos there again!
