There honestly isn’t anything I don’t love about fall. The day was a perfect example of the beauty of New England in autumn.
I was waiting at the reservoir by the walking paths for my husband and son to arrive. The plan was to attempt to get a photo of Nicholas for our holiday card. He loves going there because he gets to feed the fish and walk the trails. It’s usually such a wonderful time. That day, however; I didn’t expect that.
I was fearful that this moment in time would go from a quiet little haven with the sound of leaves falling from the trees, looking out at the water, to our son telling us that he didn’t want his picture taken. “Ever”. That’s usually the way it goes.
He surprised us. He had a blast, and we were able to get some pretty great pictures that day. I think the key to getting a great shot is to throw out that planned, picture perfect moment in your head, and just catch them having fun. Isn’t that the key to capturing the best moments always?
What are some of your unplanned, favorite moments?
