{Family Photo Session: Erica, Michael & Mason}

Happy Veterans Day! It's not often the calendar strikes a date like 11.11.11. So, what
are you doing on this lucky day? Whatever it is -- bonne chance!

I love getting to work with new clients. It gives me a
shot of inspiration every single time. These guys came
to me on referral from Jenny. We had a small world
moment when we realized that I work with Michael's
mom at one of my jobs.

Anyway, I had a great time with them. Their beautiful
kiddo, Mason, was on the move. So, he gave me a run
for my money -- literally -- and I enjoyed it.

It was my first time doing family photos down at
Tempe Town Lake -- a location I definitely want to
use again. What a lovely spot to spend a Saturday
morning. The water was so peaceful and having sand
in my toes made me feel like I was actually at the
beach for a minute. Delightful.

I have so much editing to catch up with. I have three shoots in the hopper and another
one to take on Sunday. So, I'm hoping to do a lot of it this weekend. 'Tis the season! I'm
quite looking forward to it. Just me, a cup of tea, some music, and photoshop. Mmm.

Yeah right! More like I'll edit while I should be sleeping or in between working, doing
laundry, exercising, taking down Halloween decorations, playing with the dogs, and
running errands. But no complaints! Life is good, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Love the action shots!
Little man has some energy, huh?!

Family is beautiful. They all have great smiles! Don't always get that. They look happy together. :o)

So, composition wise... LOVE the shot with just dad under at bridge, maybe??? How crazy would that look if they was in color? Anyway, it's a great shot with lines all over. Nice job!

Little man is adorable! Facial expressions are so cute!

Excuse me, I forgot how to type!

*under A bridge not At.
*if He was in color, not They

I'm sure you got my drift though.

Also wanted to say, mom has beautiful eyes! So big and pretty! She reminds me of someone but I just can't name who.
Her hair is similar to what I've been thinking of cutting my like. Maybe just a little shorter???
