Fall family photo session NJ – Degnan family

A family photo session on a not-too-cold Fall day in Skylands Manor, NJ with these four energetic kids … and I just love the results. You can just see the personality and energy in the photos. There are some posed photos of the kids with and without their parents … and then I allowed the kids to do their own thing. A hectic pace keeping up with 4 kids goofing around in front of the camera.

Right at the end here, I posted a photo of the portable location lighting that I use when necessary. It makes all the difference. As Annie, their mom, told me at some point, “I really loved the lighting – that was what drew me to your pictures and fabulous work to begin with!” The way that light and lighting affects the images, is definitely something that I take particular care of, without allowing it to hamper the flow of the photo session. It all has to be fun, because without the fun element, we lose the interest of any kids.

As feedback and a kind of testimonial, I asked Annie more about the experience of the family photo session:

“Our family’s experience with Neil can be summarized as relaxed, fun and extremely efficient. In my research for a local photographer, I luckily stumbled upon Neil’s site and was immediately drawn by his impressive work. After my initial outreach to Neil, the logistics and communications with him were completed with ease from beginning to end. My family was immediately comfortable with Neil upon meeting him for the first time on the morning of our photo shoot. My children were not shy to ask questions and Neil was so calm and patient. We had a beautiful day and Neil’s completed work did not disappoint us! We look forward to a future photo session with Neil again!”

And here are the photos of the beautiful Degnan family:

Oh my gosh, Neil, I LOVE THESE!! Not only because I’m obsessed with fall, but also because you just captured personality and life stage so well. Also, yikes!! Four kids is definitely enough to wear me out for a session (and I wouldn’t even want to think about having to keep four in my house all the time). Awesome job on these.

Neil!! What sorcery do you use to get children to be so free and fun in front of your camera! I can only imagine these parents are over the moon happy with their photos from you. I love these so much!
