The Medoza family was referred to me by one of my other families I have photographed, the Silver family! The original photo shoot plan was to take photographs in Philadelphia, however the weather had a different plan in mind. We ended up having to switch days and locations! We relocated our ideas to Batsto State Park. Despite having to change locations , I was still excited. Batsto State Park is one of my favorite spots to photograph!
Batsto Village State Park is a historic site in New Jersey known for its beauty and historical significance. There are so many great photograph opportunities here with the gorgeous buildings, faded brick walls, and worn barn doors. But my favorite spot to photograph? Is this beautiful blue door.
The door is on the old general store and I have used this door at every session I have done at Batsto. I was saddened to see that they cut down the pretty tree that used to stand tall next to it and am hoping they have plans to plant a new one! I love the color of the blue and the old weathered walls. It never fails to provide some great photographs.
After taking this photo...I knew it was going to be a good one. I saw it in black and white the second I took it! This photograph almost takes you back in time, and the Mendoza family did the model pose so well!
I have been known to say this more than once during a session!
On the way out, I saw this old barn and the way the sun was peeking over the top creating a beautiful glow and illuminance... I just had to take just a couple more!!
It was a little chilly this day, but the Mendoza family killed it! Everyone looked fantastic in their fall/winter attire and we definitely got some beautiful shots. I loved how willing they were with the poses and how they humored me when I asked to take a couple more photos! This session was perfect...a perfect location and a great family!
Thank you so much Mendoza Family! As always I am incredibly grateful you chose me to capture these memories for you!
