Kids Portrait Photography Session at Mill Creek Park With a Side of Rain

I had the opportunity to spend the weekend away from Columbus and traveled north to the Youngstown area to visit family and photograph few of my clients that live there. The weather on Saturday was not promising with pop-up thunderstorms all day, but leading up to the portrait session for these two kids, the sun was out and shining brightly. Shortly after arriving at Fellows Riverside Gardens at Mill Creek Park, the rain also arrived. The good news was that no one was using Kidston Pavilion, so we had a great sheltered area for James and Lilly’s portraits. Although we were contained to one area, I was able to get some photos of these two adorable children in. Lilly is such a talker and you would never guess she was only 4-years-old with all the funny stories she tells. And baby James was one of the happiest babies I’ve ever seen. Hopefully the next time I photograph these two cuties, we’ll have better luck with the weather so we can really get out in the park and play.

Look at those big blue eyes!! What a happy guy he was.

Mom did a great job with all of Lilly’s outfits for her portraits – I love when clients bring coordinating accessories like hats!!

I’m not sure what story she was telling me for this photograph – but her hands clasped together is just perfect!
