horses, a farm and a family | Allegan family phototographer

Horses, a farm and a wonderful family- it doesn’t get any better than that at a photo session! I’ve known them since Hudson was a baby, and we always have a great time at their sessions. This year they wanted to meet at the farm where they board their horses near Hopkins, and I was so excited to see the barns and fall colors when I got there. A photographer’s dream spot, even without the horses! Add horses, and I’m over the moon. Lillie was a little cautious when she got close up and personal with the horses, but when mom and dad were by her side, she got into it.

Hudson was into it all, but I think his favorite part was jumping off the hay bales

could you get a more photogenic family? I don’t think so!

I loved spending time with you again, N. family, and it was great to meet the horses, too!
