Sunsets on a family in Mohawk River park

Family portraits at Mohawk River Park, Cohoes, NY

A gorgeous fall evening in the park. The colors really came out to play this past Tuesday evening. I had never been to the Mohawk River Park before, but I was overwhelmed with the number of places around the park where a photographer dreams can come true.

Adrienne is Jennifer's cousin (from my recent portrait session in Saratoga). We met through Jen at several get togethers and have become well acquainted since then. I was so glad her mom suggested that she get some family portraits done for this fall and that Adrienne recommended this park to me. She said she couldn't recall the last time she had portraits after her daughter Morgan was born.

I started near the entrance to the park since we had so many places we could photograph. I loved this old brick building. I just love the cool texture.

We moved to a pond view while we were waiting for another photographer to finish up in front of a very popular and beautiful covered bridge.

There are a lot of great little nooks to get some beautiful portraits. We started having fun on the little footbridges that are scattered around the park. ”Little, but not so little“ Scott, and his sister Morgan were so awesome and patient, and Morgan really worked it for the camera to get that candy prize at the end of our session.

We finished up by the river overlooking the water and the amazing colorful sunset sky. Even Mom and Dad got some loving shots and Scotty said, "Is this like you're getting married again?" LOL.

A bird even photobombed our brother and sister river overlook photo.

We ended the night with an impromptu leaf throwing circle and some playground fun. What a perfect evening. I couldn't love this little family more, and I'm so glad we got Morgan in photos smiling and ready for her prize ;-). The leaf throw at the end was all their idea BTW and it was a good one!!
