The temperatures are dropping here in Ohio — tomorrow’s forecast doesn’t even have us sniffing the 30s — so I’m happy to post some family pics from last month, when fall had settled in, the leaves had recently turned and you could do an outdoor family photo shoot without risk of losing a couple of fingers to frostbite!

We found ourselves in a gorgeous setting when these two cuties brought their parents with them for our Akron photo shoot. Big brother set a great example by sitting still long enough to pose for some fun shots but his sister just wasn’t having it. In the second picture below, I had to lure her close with some of my camera equipment just long enough to snap the shot. No worries, though — when doing a shoot with kids this age, posing mostly goes out the door and adventure time takes over. We had a great time following these two kiddos around for an hour, and we even sneaked in a couple shots of Mom and Dad!

Here are some of my favorites from the day. If you’re interested in having some Akron family pictures taken, please visit Windowsill Photography!

I’ve spent all but one year of my life in Ohio. It’s by no means the most glamorous state to call home, especially if you’re a sports fan living anywhere near Cleveland (as I am), but Ohio its charms. There’s Cedar Point, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame; Ohio is the birthplace for John Glenn, Steven Spielberg, Paul Newman, seven different US presidents…and the hot dog (no joke); this may be the only place where you can wear shorts one day and a snowsuit the next (I’ve done it); and as a kid, I always loved saying that my state was “round on the ends and ‘HI’ in the middle.” But the thing I love most about Ohio is its beauty in the fall months.

My appreciation for fall in Ohio has really grown since I started Windowsill Photography, and you can see why in some of these pictures. It doesn’t get much prettier than an October afternoon in Ohio, as far as I’m concerned, especially when you’re hanging out with a family like this that loves having a good time on a photo shoot. It was a brisk day at River Styx park in Wadsworth, but these guys were troopers and even obliged when I asked them to crawl over dead tree limbs and through prickers only to climb down into a creek bed. I promised them it would be worth the hassle, and hopefully they’ll agree after seeing these.

Here are some of my favorites from the day. Thanks for a great time, guys!
