…to me!

I told my girls that all I wanted for Mother’s Day this year were some nice pictures of the three of them.  This shoot was only about 7 months in the making and almost didn’t happen.  No pressure or anything;).

Last fall our family had so much fun picking apples for the first time (we’re new to the area).  By far our favorite orchard to visit was Lindsey’s Orchard right here in Clifton Park.  The apples were so, so yummy and everyone we met there was incredibly kind and helpful.  I asked for permission to come back and shoot in the spring when the trees were in blossom and the owner graciously agreed.  All week I nervously stalked the weather channel, news websites, etc., praying that the clouds would cooperate for the shoot.  The forecast for Friday included a few hours of rain, but I held on to hope.  Nature just couldn’t be so cruel.  Then my poor baby girl started to show signs that she coming down with something.  We made it, though.  The rain held off just long enough for us to get into the car as we were leaving, and baby girl was excited enough about playing in the apple trees that we were able to capture some beautiful shots.

Could anything be more beautiful than an orchard in spring?

I just love this face:).

And what every mother-photographer dreams of, but seldom captures of her own kids–the group shot!

Thanks girls, for the best Mother’s Day ever!

    Looks like your family is very comfortably settled there. They’re growing up beautifully. Is your eldest excited about her upcoming baptism? My eight year old was thrilled with her special day.

  19. […] Mini sessions will be a fabulous way to allow as many families as possible the opportunity to take advantage of the short time the trees are in blossom.  If you have never experienced a custom photography session, they are also a great way to try one out.  Mini sessions last 30-45 minutes, are never rushed, and yield approximately 10-12 proofs.  Blossoming apple orchards are almost magical in their beauty and I have so many fun ideas for how to emphasize that in these sessions.  To see how beautiful the orchard looked last year, click here.
