Summer is now at an end for us.
Three of four kids are in school this year.
That’s an insane feeling, one that I’m still not entirely used to.
Before school started, I took some family photos of my sister’s family.
It was loud and crazy and oh so fun, just like them.
We went over to her house for a impromptu Sunday bbq the day before school started
to let the kiddos have one last summer play date.
I told her that I wanted her to take a photo of my family.
(Well, most of my family because Blaze wasn’t with us, but he will be with us when we have portraits taken by
Kate later this fall.)
I took some test shots to get the settings for her, posed everyone, then ran over to join
and let Autumn snap away.
She did great, right? I love this.
I can’t wait to get this on my wall
and I can’t wait to have the entire family in front of the camera, too!

Well, maybe she isn’t really a senior anymore, but we shot the session like a senior session.
Miss Allie is one of the fantastic teachers at KDA
(the coolest dance studio around, you know)
and my middle daughter is in love with her.
Allie was her teacher last year and she is so good with the kiddos.
(All the teachers there are so amazing with the kids.)
At the beginning of the summer, I asked Allie if she would like to do a session
I had visions of sunsets and a leaping ballerina.
Allie was perfect for it.
She said yes and we planned for the session.
What we did not plan for was a huge thunderstorm that followed us
and dumped buckets of water on our heads.
It ended up passing after we hid for a bit, but it took away our sunset.
No worries, we just shot at twilight!
And we’ve planned to reschedule some time in the near future just for some more play
during a sunset.
Here are some of my favorites from our session.
Isn’t she gorgeous?!
It was so fun!
I can’t wait to work with her again!
