almost rained out

We were rained out once and almost got rained out again for this family shoot.  I am so glad that we waited out the weather and went to the park.  The S family was a lot of fun, and I was able to see the girls’ personalities shine through.  At one point, we had to wait out a shower in the gazebo of the park.  Everyone was a great sport, and the photos turned out beautifully!

mississippi

I am back at work after having a great vacation in Mississippi.  I could have done without the 14 hour drive to and fro, but the time spent there was worth it.  Wayne’s family lives out in the country on 59 acres of land (most of which is tree farming).  It was amazing to see the kids have so much space to run and roam and explore and play.  They loved it and didn’t want to leave!  My favorite was watching them on this rope swing in a tree not too far from the house.  They played on that swing for hours on end, and I never got tired of watching them.  Jake went fishing and both he and Cami got to drive a 4 wheeler for the first time.  Reese had fun in the pool and spending time outdoors watching her sister and brother.   
Here are some of my favorite photographs from the trip…

vacation time

I’ve been slacking on the blog, so I wanted to update it before I left for vacation.  I will be leaving tomorrow for Mississippi and will return on Monday, June 29th.  We are driving (wish me luck), so hopefully I’ll find some interesting things to photograph along the way.  I’ve been so busy with work that I haven’t posted any photos in two weeks.  So here are two of my favorites from this weekend’s mini sessions.
I have watched and photographed the boys, N and M, as they have grown up over the past 6 years (isn’t that crazy?).  I love seeing them every time.

And I couldn’t resist the image of K because she looks so beautiful and relaxed.  Enjoy!  I’ll write when I get back in town…
