This fun-loving family joined me for a family mini session on a glorious spring evening. After spotting an apple tree in full bloom, we hopped the downed fence and headed into a gorgeous location. I originally met Mom in my college photography class nearly three years ago and though our scholastic paths took a few different turns, we have stayed connected. I was so honoured that she chose me to take some photos of her lovely family, whom I had never met yet I felt like I already knew so well from her stories and from seeing them in her images. The only family member missing was Simon, their pup, who was recovering from an injury at home.
I loved working with her boys, so full of energy and curiosity, ready to climb trees and thrash the long grass with sticks. And Mr. A didn't even cry when he hopped out of a tree right into a patch of nettles, causing welts on his arms and faces. Tough cookie! Also, they are at ages where I no longer have to chase them or bribe them (too much) to get some images, which after a long day of shooting was a welcome relief! Don't get me wrong, I love a two-year-old as much as anybody else, but sometimes it is nice to have subjects who pay attention for more than 0.003 seconds at a time! LOL
