This weekend I had a fun, light spirited family photo session with a good friend and her two little ones. The weather was perfect, the calm warmth of spring before the strong heat of the southwestern summer hits. The atmosphere was, as put by the wonderful mother of these two sweet children, perfect for people watching. We assumed that there were two quincenera photo shoots occurring, as well as a prom shoot, and various others. The park where we had our shoot has the perfect array of enjoyable and light-hearted attractions for families, some of which we were able to incorporate into the photographs. What a delight this day was, spending time with such a sweet and thoughtful family, with dear little ones who find such an enjoyment of the simple things in life.. a lesson I hope myself to learn, kids can often be the greatest instructors on joyful living.
