Family Photo Session: The Roos Family

A few weeks ago when autumn leaves were still brightening our days with their presence, I was lucky enough to capture precious family moments of Roos Family. They traveled from a nearby town of Cheongju one Sunday morning and we spent a few hours walking around Hanbat Arboretum while I snapped a few shots. It was a warm afternoon, which also drew a lot of passersby to this popular Daejeon destination and parking was a bit more challenging than usual. Also there was a large “Dog and Puppy convention” nestled in the open area between the two park’s sections, so we were frequently greeted by some of the fluffiest, well-behaved, adorable, perfectly groomed pooches (which always put a smile on my face).

I enjoyed learning Roos Family’s unique South African names which are always a treat with a different pronunciation than you’d expect from a Facebook conversation. So Trishke, Rooben, Simone and Abigail were frolicking around and playing with some beautiful fall foliage.

Late morning kisses were in order before proceeding to the next spot…

The baby of the family got some snuggles and affection while Simone was running around to collect more leaves.

When just the perfect leaves were selected, the whole family posed for one of those classic autumn portraits.

Pin this!

Little Princess was all about posing alone, which apparently is very common. Who could argue with a pose like that 🙂

Similarly, mommy and daddy decided to give kiddos a break and got into their personal photo session time.

Lastly, we picked the last spot for more cuddles and hugs as the family posed together near a pond.

As always, I’d love to hear from you about your own Family Photo Session. While the leaves are barely hanging on here in Daejeon, my home studio is always available. Let’s get in touch or see more from my portfolio. 


  1. What a lovely family! How do you pronounce Trishke’s name? It sounds elegant.
    Great job on capturing the happy autumn moments of their family. I’m now looking forward to see your family portraits for winter.
