I stumbled upon this scene last weekend:
And when I asked the child what happened, he told me he’d died.
“Died?” I asked.
And he responded, “Yes… of boredom.“
I whipped this up some time ago and it was SO VERY YUMMY. With it being apple season and all, I thought you might like to try it as well.
You won’t regret it. The printable recipe is below.
This is Alison. We met a few weeks ago when she, her mom, and sister made the trek out to my home in Rosemount for a stunning high school senior portrait session.
The weather was beeeeautiful with just enough wind to add a little spark to the images.
As fun as it was for me, Alison had her hands full. 🙂
For the last couple of years, I have been dying to use one of the local flower fields as a session backdrop. It seemed the flowers were always gone by the time a senior girl was in my midst. But not this time.
And wouldn’t you know? Alison had THE PERFECT top for it [totally unplanned] – a sure sign that SHE was meant to bring this image to life:
LOVE IT! Here are several more from our time together:
Have a wonderful senior year, Alison!!!
I recently had the opportunity to photograph a very special family gathering. The kind that only happens once or twice a year. Siblings, spouses, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends…
From different parts of Wisconsin. And Florida. [And, of course, Minnesota!] It’s not always easy for EVERYONE to gather in one place. At the very same time.
When Caarin contacted me about the session, it sounded like the perfect backdrop for an Everyday Session.
And that it was. I simply hung back and watched them reconnect.
And enjoy a meal together.
Here are several more of my favorites from the day:
Things I will remember about this day:
– the icing pranks and your refrigerator is running
– the flower crown that even I got to wear 🙂
– the seemingly effortless way in which the family pulled this picnic together (everyone had a role and played it well)
– Charlee and Coltrane… TOTAL sweetness
– watching the little “princess” and her auntie… they had a special, special connection
– the silliness with Grandpa
– hearing that the pictures I took of Grandma with her brother and Grandpa with his sister were THE VERY FIRST taken together in a long, long time
This day and these moments will be treasured. Thank you SO VERY MUCH for allowing me to capture your day!
