I really wanted to take a few photos of Ross, Rayna and Ruthie. But, I had 2 problems:
1. I’m new to NW Arkansas and totally clueless about pretty, legal, unpopulated and unique places to take pictures.
allow my kids to wear pretty much whatever they want ‘don’t dress my kids super fancy’. So, clothing is never something I look forward to when it comes to a session with my kids.
So, Rayna and I headed to the thrift store and bought her a pretty dress for a few bucks that matched another thrift-store shirt Ross already had. Then, I took the kids to the vacant field across the street from my house and, 20 minutes later, we were back home!
Yes, there were a few melt-downs and tears, but all of those ‘real’ pictures went straight to the trash!
Although I’m glad I finally have “official” photos for this season, I think I DEFINITELY prefer more real, authentic and playful photos of everyday life!
