and then the cops show up...

Let me set the picture for you I am standing in a field of weeds with my 5D 70-200 lens on (it's pretty big) and a mom and baby wearing white dresses.

Cop - what are you doing?
me - um...taking pictures (I hold up the camera and lens)
Cop - you are standing in a bunch of weeds
me - I know... isn't it beautiful?!
Cop - okay have a good time

this is where I should have walked a biz card over to him and said check out my blog later :)

Well this shoot was so much fun for me and if I could post every picture of the way the light made those beautiful weeds glow I would. Joy and her daughter are so gorgeous! I really am blessed to have this family as part of my life. I wanted to put up a slideshow from their shoot but I am yet to find a good way to do it. I guess this will force me to buy new software :)



I love this set of 3 photos. I wish I could explain how cute it was watching Joy spin her daughter around. Look at her happy face in the 2nd one :)
