An End of Summer Family Session at Tifft Nature Preserve with the Aubertin Family

With the cooler temps this week, and talk of school starting back up tomorrow, it’s really starting to hit home that summer is soon going to be coming to an end. I feel like we just got started. I’ve been absolutely LOVING every single minute of this season – on both a personal level and business level – and I am just not ready to let it go (insert adult temper tantrum vibes here). I mean…. I'm still craving weekday evenings like this, with a great family in beautiful light, roaming through grassy paths and exploring at the water’s edge. Tifft Nature Preserve along Buffalo’s Outer Harbor has by far been my favorite location for summer family sessions this year. Of course the light and clouds and overall backdrop have been beautiful. But more than that, the families I have photographed here hold such a special in place in my heart. This session with the Aubertin family on Friday evening was no exception. I have been photographing this family now going on almost 8 years – first for their engagement, then their wedding, then newborn and first year photos for their oldest, the (post-)birth of their youngest, and now two family sessions of them as a family of four. I know I always talk about how great of an honor it is to provide photos for clients on their wedding day and then after of their families, but guys… I don’t know if I could ever describe what it truly means to me. Especially to families like the Aubertin family who have literally been there supporting me from the beginning of me growing my business… my gratitude is endless. THANK YOU.

One final note before wrapping up this post: I’ve been loving these summer family sessions so much I have decided to extend my End of Summer Mini Sessions! If you’ve missed it, these sessions are 20 minutes in duration, include 5 high resolution digital photos, and are only $225. These sessions are for families of 4 people or less, and take place on select weeknights throughout the end of September at either Tifft Nature Preserve or Hoyt Lake. So if you’re looking to sneak in a breathtaking family session like this before the leaves start changing colors, LET’S DO IT!! Inquire for availability and booking details through my inquire page, or emailing me directly at info@dawnmgibsonphotography. I cannot wait to get a conversation started.
