I took my kids out for an impromptu photo session when we were in the Black Hills recently, and we got some great images!! I may or may not have done a lot of screaming and bribing to get them though. I really try NOT to photograph my own kids, as silly as that sounds, but I just don’t have the patience with them that I need. This area is close to my dad’s house and is a favorite spot to swim and fish while we are visiting, so I thought it would be the perfect place for some portraits. Love these two more than anything in the world, even when they are pushing my buttons and not listening. And, of course, Bear made an appearance too… so special as this is the first thing that Mike purchased for our first child when we found out we were pregnant, and Noah loves him so much.
