Family Photos at South Shore Riverfront Park

This past Sunday I went to check out a location for an upcoming photo session. While I was at it, I jumped on the opportunity to snap some pictures of my kids.  In less than 5 minutes I decided what they were going to wear & hoped for the best.. (usually this decision can take a whole lot longer than that)

As a Mother & Photographer,  I’m usually conflicted about bringing my camera on family outings. I like being present and I feel like my camera can be a bit of a distraction. However, I also value beautiful photos and don’t want to miss the opportunity. So this time I decided to bring it along, and I’m glad I did.  Children grow up so quickly! As a parent, I want to hold on to these present moments forever. I want to remember their adorable expressions they make. In reality, I know that I won’t be able to repeat that minute, hour & day again. So I take their pictures, save them, hang them on the wall and when I walk past I always smile because I know  I will cherish those memories forever.

 South Shore Riverfront Park  is a  beautiful spot for a photo session.  The  Three Rivers Heritage Trail near the water, a bridge view and buildings in the distance, all make for a really nice spot to get your photos taken. If you enjoy running, jogging or biking like I do, you must check this trail out!
