Kansas City Family Photos: Antioch Park October 20, 2009

Fall is a great time for family portraits. It’s perfect for great colors, beautiful scenery, and just in time for Christmas cards or gifts. :) We have some great parks around Kansas City that provide beautiful backdrops for families who want fall-themed portraits. One of the prettiest right now is Antioch Park, which has about every color of tree all packed in together. It’s really beautiful!

I met up with this beautiful family for an afternoon session at the peak of the fall season — which we all know goes by way too fast here in the midwest. I love the photos we captured of them!

I like to do “matching” photos of individual kids, which make for great collage-style framed prints on walls, partnered with family photos. I try to think about how my clients might want to use their images as pairings after the shoot. Here’s an example — these two boys are so cute! Here’s George:

And his big brother, Hank:

Aren’t their outfits cute? I love the sweaters and matching blue Chucks.

I love this one of dad playing with his boys! Having two boys would be quite adventurous. :)

I love taking photos of moms and dads together, too. Aren’t these two beautiful together?

We also played in the leaves. I love the shot of Hank’s shoes in the leaves.
