"Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn." - Elizabeth Lawrence

Autumn is an absolutely beautiful time for outdoor portraits, especially when the leaves allow for some extra natural props for the kids to play with.  As much as running around in the leaves with little ones is a blast, this time of year is great for couple sessions as well.  The changing leaves represent the beauty, as well as the necessity of change and growth throughout each year.  And who doesn't love to be dressed up nice a cozy in light coats with scarves without being stuck in the snow!  

This past Tuesday, I had the pleasure of photographing a great old friend and his girlfriend for their almost-two-year-anniversary!  Dave and I went to high school and college together and I've known Liz for a couple years as well.  We went to the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain, MA (if you look back to very early blog posts you will see some photos of my dancer friend Angie posed in the changing leaves of this same location 3 years ago!).  The Arboretum is the most beautiful, versitile landscape ever! You could wander around for days, never passing the same tree twice - perfect for photoshoots! Anyway, let's get to the good stuff - here is Dave & Liz, enjoy some of my favorites from our afternoon in the chilly November weather!

Of course we have to end on a silly one - here the happy couple is clicking their heels at the same time!  If only we had brought balloons and then it'd look like they were floating away together!  Love it!

Thanks again Dave and Liz, you guys made my job so easy and are great models!
