I went to the park with one of my favorite families. It was time for family pictures - and I love what we got! The behind-the-scenes background for this great session - the baby did not like the wind. :) And it's been such a windy (sometimes I say horribly windy) spring! It wasn't even TOO breezy that day, but she wasn't crazy about it - or whatever it was - and only lasted for a few family pictures. Photoshop came to the rescue, and I do really like how the family portraits turned out. (Thank you, Photoshop! I love you.)
In the meantime, while we were waiting to see if she could be coaxed back to happiness, I played with the three big kids on the playground. LOOOOOOOVE these pictures. The only thing that I'd love more is if they had a happy little baby in them too :( - but we did another quick shoot a few days later with all 4 kids sitting very happily together (pictures still to come).
So I'd love these if they were of my kids - I hope they do too! (I'm posting way too many.)
The balloons... I love the idea, but it was too windy for them. They were IN THE WAY :) - but we did a few pictures with them anyway. There was another little boy at the park who literally could not leave the balloons alone - I told him if only I'd known he would be there, I'd have brought one more. Then one of them deflated, and he wanted this sad little flat balloon. Is that a nice thing to give a little boy at the park? A flat balloon on a string? I did.
