On Saturday I headed to Chagrin Falls for my third portrait session with Ashley, Allan, Isabella, and Leo. I first met this sweet family about a year ago, and since then it's incredible how much Isabella and Leo have grown! Ashley and Allan were hoping for family portraits with a holiday theme, so we opted to meet in the village of Chagrin Falls, a great spot with lots of variety between the namesake waterfall, village park, and nearby shops to warm up in.
We began the morning with some group portraits on the stairway to the falls (which was open- not a common occurrence in the winter!), then we warmed up for a few minutes in the Chagrin Falls Popcorn Shop, where Isabella and Leo were thrilled to see Santa walk by with a coffee! After that we headed to the middle of town to explore the gazebo before cozying up in Fireside Book Shop, where Ashley, Allan, Isabella, and Leo took a few moments to read The Polar Express together. After that, we went back to the entrance to the falls for a few last pictures together outside.
Merry Christmas to the D Family!
