Michelle Mussari Photography – the “L” family mini session

I’ve known Marissa for several years and she had mentioned to me a few times that she was interested in having her families photos done.  When she contacted me to sign up for one of my mini-sessions I was thrilled.  I know we were going to have a ton of fun.  We met up at one of our local parks which offered us some beautiful fall scenery and lakeside fun.  It was a perfect fall day and was my sincere pleasure to capture this family so full of love and affection for one another.  Marissa and Justin, thank you for choosing me!

My little pumpkin

So I’ll start this by confessing I am super biased when it comes to this particular cutie pie… she just so happens to be my baby.  As it goes, she’s not a baby any more; she’ll be two next month.  I couldn’t resist sharing this pumpkin themed mini-session I took of her last year around this time.  I love fall and all that this time of year brings.  Cooler weather, the smell of autumn, leaves changing colors and pumpkin.  I love pumpkin and I know I’m not alone.  It’s pumpkin spice mania right now, so I thought I would share of few of  my new favorite recipes. Try these Pumpkin Spelt Muffins or this Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate.  Let me know how you like them!  Enjoy!!

The M Family

Last fall I had the wonderful privilege to photograph a family that is very dear to me.  They have an amazing heart for adoption and foster care and have been such a blessing to so many children over the years.  God placed it on their hearts to adopt again and this time they were blessed with siblings (THREE) from Ethiopia adding to the 4 kids they already had.  They had all only been home a few weeks when I met them on a grey fall day, but we made the most of it and the kids had a blast playing in the leaves.  They’ve been a family for 6 months now, so I thought it was a good time to finally share their photo session.  Michelle and Marco, thank you so much for the opportunity to capture your beautiful family.  I’m grateful to be able to call you my friends. ~ MImage

The “B” Family

My good friend contacted me to schedule a surprise shoot of her three beautiful children as a Christmas present for her husband. As a mother of three myself, I could relate when she said she had a hard time getting genuine photos of her kids. I do too!  It was a cold December day, overcast and late in the day as the sun was setting.  The kids were such troopers!   Mum was thrilled with the results and so was I.  Thank you Jules for allowing me into your home and your life.  It’s been such a pleasure getting to know you over the past few years. ~m
