The Red Barn and the River

As I was taking a morning run around the campground, I saw two things that caught my eye. A gorgeous red barn and a beautiful river. The photographer in my knew we had to have a little photo session. I hadn’t packed anything terribly nice for the kids, but I didn’t care if they were in their bathing suits, we were taking pictures with this barn and the river. I bribed the kids with smores, found the nicest outfits we brought that sort of matched and headed around the campground for our little photoshoot.

Olivia and Matthew were not very cooperative…and neither was my assistant, Matt. But I still think they turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. And I even managed to get a couple of the my dogs. They’re constantly moving so it’s hard to get a shot of them.

Do you ever have those moments where you look through the lens of your camera and realize that you are looking at IT? The epitome of your existence, your reason for breathing, the meaning of life?

Yeah, me too.
