The time of the falling leaves has come again. Once more in our morning walk we tread upon carpets of gold and crimson, of brown and bronze, woven by the winds or the rains out of these delicate textures while we slept. How beautifully the leaves grow old! How full of light and color are their last days! There are exceptions, of course. The leaves of most of the fruit-trees fade and wither and fall ingloriously. They bequeath their heritage of color to their fruit. Upon it they lavish the hues which other trees lavish upon their leaves…. But in October what a feast to the eye our woods and groves present! The whole body of the air seems enriched by their calm, slow radiance. They are giving back the light they have been absorbing from the sun all summer. – John Burroughs, “The Falling Leaves,” Under the Maples
Fall! My favorite season by far to photograph. It these colors don’t fill your heart with joy, nothing will. I have been photographing this family since the very beginning, and I still get excited every time they book a session! These kids show raw emotion like I have never seen before! So much excitement and so much fun! We played games, threw leaves, jumped off rocks, and simply ran in circles for over an hour!
I am super happy to share this session!
