I am not a "Wedding Photographer", except when I am hired to do the occasional wedding shoot for one of my friends, so my business is really slow in the summer. This actually works out for me, because then I get to plan my weeks around friends, my kids and where they want to go (or not), and I can visit State Parks, which is one of my favorite things to do.
This past summer, I got to take pictures of my friend and her lovely family. She had her baby last December and between her other two boys and other mommy stuff, she did not have the time to get his picture taken! I was very happy to take pictures of them and their littlest guy. I chose a great park for their session, really close to our children's school. Nice backdrops in the summertime and things to keep her 2 older boys occupied - like HUGE boulders to climb on and a play structure - so I could take pictures of their cute baby brother.
