Soft Blue & Green Fall Family Session at Riverfront Park | Columbia, SC Family Photographer

Oh, what an adventurous afternoon this was! The sweetest family, perfectly coordinated in their blue and green ensembles. Games of chase, peek-a-boo and pretending to launch rockets! Endless enchantment with the simplest parts of nature — rocks, leaves, Spanish moss, blades of grass — and enjoying the beauty of nature along the river. Even though we had to make a last minute change to our original session location because of the Columbia Veteran’s Day parade, I think that this dear family was just destined for another family session on the river — and the Columbia Canal and Riverfront Park never disappoints!
I have often mentioned that I love being able to photograph the same families year after year, and this family is the one who has been in front of my camera the longest! Nora is one of my dearest friends from our time at Converse, and I always look forward to her message that she and Jalal want to schedule family photos again! I’m also fortunate enough that we are able to get together a few times a year to catch up, but one of my absolute favorite things is getting to chase these two boys around on photo session day to capture their sweet, curious personalities! More than that, I love being able to capture the sweet parent-and-child moments that show the incredible bond because those moments are the ones that are easiest to miss in the craziness of day-to-day life!

Nora and Jalal — it is always a pleasure to be able to photograph your family, and I loved spending the afternoon with the four of you this fall! I still cannot get over how much your boys have changed since our last session, and I love being part of capturing your family memories over the years! You two are such sweet friends to our family, and I look forward to the next time we are able to get together, whether for a coffee date while our kids explore or for next year’s family photos!
