It's finally the off-season so that means we get to take a vacation for some good 'ole family fun! Josh and I had been mulling over where to go this year, but since we wanted to keep expenses low we decided to head out to Colorado to visit his parents, and spend a few extra days driving home through South Dakota. In the 16 years we have been doing the drive out there, we have never taken this route home. Jokes on us! We've been missing out on some serious scenery this entire time!
The fall colors are finally starting to show themselves around the cities so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to get a couple of shoots done with 2 families that are very dear to me. The first one I did was with my brother and his bunch. They wanted to get some shots of the four of them as well as some additional ones with my sister-in-laws family. We went to a trail located behind their development to start off and ended up at their house towards the end. I knew I was going to have my work cut out for me as my nephew is on the autism spectrum and absolutely hates the camera. He's not talking yet and expresses himself emotionally so it can be a challenge to figure out a good way for him to smile for pictures. I don't usually shoot family scenes in shutter priority but since time was of the essence, I didn't want to waste potential moments with manual mode. This seems to have paid off and I'm super happy with how the pictures turned out even though the group shot was a bit of a struggle (as seen above)!
