A couple of weeks ago, I got a text asking if I could take pictures of a family gathering at Camp Hawk, following the funeral of a dear family member. I have taken their pictures many times before and actually took a four generation picture when I had my studio downtown a few years back. Here is a link to the pictures from my old blog. It was kind of short notice, as most funerals are, but I didn't have anything scheduled that day, so of course I said yes! I wanted them to relax and be able to chat and visit with their family so they didn't have to worry about taking pictures.
There was a lot of family from out of state, and lots of the kid cousins hadn't met each other yet, so they wanted me to get some of the kids playing together.
The two little girls were adorable as I watched them introducing themselves to each other while they thought nobody was watching. "What color do you like?" asked one of the girls and then she said, "I like purple, I don't like pink." Then they went on to chat and roll the ball around the playground.
It was fun for some of the adults join in the fun.
Some of the kids played soccer...
While others played on the merry-go-round.
Then we took a few group shots before I left. It wasn't the best time of day for pics, but we found a shaded area by a big tree and made it work.
What a fun bunch this was!
I am so glad I had the opportunity to capture this day for them!
