Newby Family

I had another opportunity to meet a new family at a recent photo session. They were all a lot of fun and made me feel very welcome. This is the first time, since two of their kids were married, that they were all able to be together. What a better time for a photo session? I am glad that I was able to meet the Newby's, they are a wonderful family.

The unique thing (for me at least) about this session is the fact that there were no children. I almost always have children involved in my photo sessions... that made things a little bit different, but fun. 

I really loved how the photos of the three girls turned out. My favorite...

Thanks so much for the great session! It was fun meeting you all... thank you!!

Mark, Tamri, Elsie, and Isaac

I think I'd like it if Fall would just stick around for awhile longer... or a lot longer :) I am loving the cool... but warm weather we've been having. I also wish the beautiful leaves could stick around all through November. I am not looking forward to winter....

This session was just perfect. I feel so lucky to be getting so many sunny days for pictures. I haven't had to worry about rain for quite awhile. We headed out to one of my favorite spots and we were there at the perfect time with all the fall leaves. Tamri is a good friend of mine, and of course I was so excited when she asked me to take her family photos. I LOVE taking pictures for friends. It is fun to see their personalities come out in each photo. Tamri and her family are naturals in front of the camera...

I love Elsie's and Isaacs dark eyes. So pretty :)

See? I told you... naturals...

Just having fun. That's what it's all about, right?

I got SO MANY cute cheesy smiles from this guy... and I loved it! 

Thanks Mark and Tamri! As always I had a blast!

Fall Colors

Beautiful location, perfect light, and a wonderful family! Having just started out with photography, so far I have only done sessions for families that I already know (well, except for one other family :)). I didn't meet this sweet family until we met for our session. I am so glad that I was able to take photos for them! They were so much fun and they let their personalities show for each photo even though they didn't know me. I am glad I was able to get to know them a little and I hope to get to know them even more! They are a super fun family. I was going to post some of these in black and white, but I just couldn't. I just love the colors from this session so much...

I love this series....

 Love these...

The photos that express real life are always my favorites.... families just enjoying their time together, you can't beat that.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for contacting me, I enjoyed my time with your family!

Skipping Rocks

The beautiful weather (and a fun new lens) gave me a great excuse for a walk last night. So we headed down to the pond to throw rocks... and I fell in love with these photos...

This was my favorite before I even loaded it onto the computer. I love his hands and all the rocks in mid air. Love it.

Typical big brother.

This is my son... asking him if he could see a bug in the lens was the only way I could get him to look at the camera :) He is a fun loving, silly boy and I love him to pieces. 

This is my daughter.... her imagination is blooming so much lately. I can hardly contain my laughter from all the silly things she says and does.

The light last night was brilliant and I had some fun!

I think my favorite part of the photo below is my daughter's little smile :) It looks like she is really excited about all the treasures she has found (and she was)!

And these photos... will forever and ever be favorites of mine. My kids have been flying around like this a lot lately. They love airplanes and everywhere we go they have their arms out like they could just fly away. I heart these sooo much....

*I still have some available spots open for this fall. Contact me if you'd like to schedule a photo session with Jessica Bateman Photography. Sessions are only $40 from now until the end of November! See this post for more information.

I absolutely loved this session. I love it when families can just be themselves in front of the camera.... It makes my job so much fun! This family did just that. They gave me the most beautiful smiles....  I could have stayed there all day taking photos. When I asked them what location they wanted they were up for anything. I suggested going to an apple orchard and I am so glad we went, I love how this session turned out!

This little guy was as happy as can be... he couldn't stop smiling! 

This smile gets to me every time I see this photo... cute!

Every time I have shoot a session I almost immediately pick out a favorite. This time it's this one :) Love, love, love it. This is my ideal family photo, doesn't it look like they are having so much fun? It would look great on a canvas...

Thank you, thank you for such a fun session! I had a blast!
