From the awful weather that plagued us for the beginning of the season, to all my client work recently and everything in between I haven’t had much time to really DO summer with my kids. It was such a long winter, and we all felt very cooped up inside all the time. We have been greatly enjoying the warmer weather of late, and in an effort to get our oldest used to the water for our upcoming family vacation we decided to get a little blow-up pool for the yard. BEST IDEA EVER! Not only did we finally get him to play in the water…. at least a little bit…. but our youngest LOVES it! It amazes me how different they are when it comes to things like that. Anyway, the first day we set it up I grabbed my camera real quick and snapped off a few shots just for me and while they may not be perfect technically they perfectly capture the excitement of the day and I think they are just too adorable. They grow up SOOOO fast!
On a little side note…. I mentioned our family vacation above. We are packing up and braving a LONG road trip to visit family in MN and WI for a few weeks. I don’t know if we are crazy or adventurous at this point but I am excited about it either way. I won’t be taking any more sessions before we leave, but will be back, ready to work by August 27th. So if you were considering booking a session yet this summer now is the time to save your spot! Hard to believe that by the time we get back summer will already almost be over!
Over the holiday weekend I had the pleasure of shooting this great group for their family reunion. The weather was gorgeous… almost TOO gorgeous since we had to fight the sun the entire time…. and everyone did well despite the heat, and the fact that they must have been starving since it sounds like they hadn’t eaten dinner before I came! Normally I like to put up somewhere between 1-3 sneak peeks a day or two after our session, just to make the wait a little easier for the full gallery, but with the holiday weekend I was traveling and doing the family thing myself. I think a bit of compromise was in order this time. Rather than make them wait longer…. since I am sure they are dying to see at least one…. I decided to work on my favorite group shot and get that up tonight!
So here it is! Thanks again for the opportunity to work with your family, and I hope you enjoy your little sneak peek. Now I will get back to working on your full gallery.
This is my absolute favorite time of year! I just love the beautiful colors all around us. Though I could do without all this rain! And I see in the forecast some possible snow even! So now is a great time to get those fall portraits done!
I thought I’d share a few of my family with you all…
