It was what mom wanted for her birthday this year – family pictures! New ones, recent ones. And we had only a two day window of opportunity to do it – it was the only two days when all the kids were home together this summer. So decisions had to be made fast! But we did it. This family was so cute! And they were so much fun! We stayed out and took pictures till the sun was down. And I mean down – it was already getting pretty dark as we were walking back to the cars. I really liked this little “valley” behind Red Rock Canyon. I just found it for the first time. And since the weather had been so nice this spring, it was very green (well, for this part of the country :)). Anyway, I just love photographing happy people. I just love it – it makes my job so easy. And these people were happy, they had fun with everything we did, even getting thorns all over themselves (ok, maybe not with the thorns :)). And mom got the birthday present she really wanted. Love it!
