The Dempsey Family Fall portrait session at Amherst State Park, Buffalo NY

I have been working with Jennifer and her family for a couple of years now, helping capture some absolutely wonderful childhood memories. Jennifer is the owner of a fabulous food blog called Mother Thyme Food + Home. EVERY time I see one of her food platters, I have a little thought to myself (hum, I wonder if I could go over there for dinner tonight!) 

I always enjoy hanging out with the family and it's been so much fun to watch them all grow! After they remodeled their home, they wanted to decorate the newly painted walls with some wonderful family memories. So we headed out to Amherst State Park this fall for some updated portraits to hang in the upstairs hallway. 

Family is a huge deal for me! Being able to hang out with other families just solidifies how important it is.  The Dempsey's have such a great thing going with their two beautiful children and their loving home. I can't help but want to squeeze these kiddos and soak up every word that comes out of their mouths. Their smiles are infectious. Their excitement and wonder for life is is what makes my job the absolute BEST!

Thanks so much to you all for spending an afternoon with me catching up and having fun! LIVE.LAUGH.PHOTO. <3 Ariel
