Recently, I had the crazy awesome privilege of going back to my hometown for the express purpose of photographing the families of two of my high school classmates! Neither shoot went precisely as planned, but I can tell you — I’ll remember this one for a long time as one of the most fun and least predictable shoots I’ve done!
We had planned to shoot on dry land, with the scenic water and setting sun forming a serene backdrop…but the kids wanted to play in the water, and before we knew it, they were IN the water! So was I, for that matter.
As the mother commented to her husband — “Aren’t you glad you ironed their shirts this afternoon?”
