Family Photography Session, Mountainside, New Jersey

I was thrilled when T+D asked me to do a family photography session for them. They are dear family friends – T and I have known each other since we were her son’s age! – so it was wonderful to be with them, playing together, camera in hand. We chose Echo Lake Park in Mountainside, as it’s one of my favorite unassuming places in Northern / Central New Jersey to photograph families. While it’s a public park, you’re often there with only a handful of other families so it feels very private. And it’s tucked away into a wooded hillside with some lovely waterside features too.

With T+D, their son was mostly interested in exploring sticks and rocks and things that make noise when you bang them together. Of course! So we stuck to the woods and found as many of those things as we could.

Near the end of the session, we’d planned for T’s mom and sister to bring their dog so we could get full family shots including their pup. This made for some great shots with grandma and aunt too!

Here are some of my favorite shots from our family photography session:
