This past fall brought lots of new faces to the Natalie Nigito Photography family! The M family helped me kick things off with their first family portraits at the Old North Bridge at Minute Man National Historic Park in Concord. I love this location since it offers such a wide variety of quintessential New England backdrops, woods and trails with colorful foliage, stone walls, a small manicured garden, plus it’s next to The Old Manse, which was called home by Ralph Waldo Emerson and Nathaniel Hawthorne. It’s also a good fit for little ones who are just learning to walk since there are lots of wide grassy areas to explore. This little guy was all smiles for his one-year-old portraits. He wasn’t too sure about walking in the grass, so I brought out my trusty radio flyer push wagon so he could cover more ground. I do love this age—one-year-olds are so happy exploring the world and so proud of all their new skills. What better way to spend a fall afternoon than stomping through a field with this busy guy?
