Fall Family Portraits at the Lake

I met the sweet G family after they entered and won our silent auction raffle for a family session from their son’s school fundraiser. I love to do school fundraisers for two reasons. The number one reason I love school fundraisers is education, education, and of course education. Growing up in North Carolina I know how hard our teachers worked to stretch every penny. Our hard working teachers always appreciate any extra income for our public schools. The second reason I love school fundraisers is because it gives me the chance to meet new families I might not ordinarily meet. I love to meet new people and hear their stories.

Turns out both the G family and our family are fairly new to the Fort Mill, SC area. We also both have boys in kindergarten. It was great connecting with another family going through similar experiences as we are now.

The G family tries to have fall family portraits taken every year. I was really excited to show them all South Carolina has to offer in outdoor fall backdrops. We chose to meet at Windjammer Park in Tega Cay, SC for our fall family portrait session. This location gives the opportunity to use the lake, the sandy beach, the wooded areas with gorgeous fall leaves and beautiful rolling grassy hills. Windjammer was the perfect location to show off South Carolina to the G family. Here are just a few of my favorite images from this session. We got some great fall family portraits for their walls don’t you think? I can’t wait to work with the sweet G family again next fall.
