I think of myself as a creative type.
I have ideas running through my mind, day and night, of projects I want to try.
Or a photos I’d like to capture.
But it’s even more exciting when a family I work with gets involved in the creative process.
And this mom had plenty of ideas to share, which made the shoot so much better than I would’ve dreamt up.

Take a look, and try not to clench your teeth from the cuteness below (I had a hard time with that)!

Go Fish!

I’ve kept a deck of cards in my car for—ever.
You know, for emergencies.
Or camping? Truthfully, I have no idea why.
I’m certain the pack has only ever been opened once.
Well, twice now.
This is the second time I met this family.
And apparently The Boy loves to play a game of cards.
So I thought I’d take full advantage of a good, albeit, competitive game of Go Fish.
These three do awesome so very well.


Calm before the storm

The skies became darker by the minute during this session.
But with these crazy gorgeous eyes, and curls,
we managed to get more than a couple dozen beautiful shots.
I especially love the less smiley, more ‘real’ shots.
And the second I was back in my car, it started to pour.
Lucky lucky.


Summer Heat

Admittedly, we haven’t had the hottest of summers. Yet.
This night was an exception. It was hot and humid.
Sweltering, actually.
The light, however, was exceptionally beautiful.

Early Morning Forest

This little one likes to wake with the birds to find adventure in the forest.
She takes after her mama.
Sometimes, if we feel like it, we collect a wildflowers on the way home.
