Summer Photoshoot


Finishing off the last weekend of our summer, we headed for the red rock canyons to relax, hike, and enjoy family-time spent together. 

I asked the kids to do a photo shoot with me to remember their weekend together.


This is a glimpse of how it went...


The setting for this gorgeous shoot took place in Oak Creek Canyon, where the surroundings look magical, with old sycamore trees canopying over the grassy lawns, the cool water runs through the boulders scattered throughout the creek, and the red rock mountains soar through the canyons. 






Our three beauties, posed at the infamous "cabin swing" where each and every kid in our extended families have fallen from, rammed into someone or twisted until sick in the stomach! 


This family swing that has been around a long time and hopefully will continue for the next generations to come.



After the moans and groans of mom [making them take pictures] they succumbed to the moment and had some fun. 



The tree bark laying all over the grass looked like masks, so we went with it!



The girls did a great job taking posing ques from me, but we had Vic [my husband], in the background putting in his two cents and offering posing ideas, driving me and the girls crazy.  


If you could have been there watching him create ideas for "poses" for the girls to follow, it would make you curl up laughing. I really want to throw in a couple of "his" shots...but...well, he's not wearing a shirt, he hasn't shaved in days, and well... he's just not 'photo-ready.'


I'm thinking of the policy that reads: No Shoes, No Shirt, No Service as I write this making me feel I shouldn't add any pictures of him.  


But then my crazy, sometimes unyeilding side comes tearing out of it's politically correct shell and all I want to do is throw in a picture (or two), of Vic to show you how funny he is. 




I will think about it for a moment...
Thinking....
Thinking....
Still Thinking....
 I'm done thinking...




Okay, I simply can't resist, just one small picture of Vic telling the girls to "come over hear, and take a picture by this rock!"  I had to take his picture while he was in his 'pose' and tell the girls, "do not go over there, it's not good lighting!" 




My 'funny' mountain man...trying to help with the photo shoot.





This is my niece, Makenna, who's soft-spoken and gentle souled, I could just eat her up for her beauty alone.




Our oldest and first-born, Hailey, who's the fun-loving, sweet-natured, and strong-minded baby I wished for 16 years ago.



Our second-born, Megan, the side-kick sister I dreamed for when we decided to have a number 2!  She's the funniest girl I know, who is kind-spirited mixed with a spit-fire-you-go-girl-attitude!



Back to the photo shoot...

My favorite shot of Makenna!




This is another one of those photo's Vic wanted to help out with.  He began throwing dried dead leaves over the girl's heads 'for the effect' when I had to remind him, "it's NOT Fall, Vic, put the leaves down!"

So he proceeded to be the funny guy he is, and do a front hand-spring, as if a flip would enhance a photo!  

That brings me, and my unyielding side, to show you one more of his photo-enhancing-antics, just because he is so funny and you need a laugh today. 



Here it is...



Do you see Vic, shirtless, performing a front hand-spring in the background? He is the "white thing" coming out of Sophia's [the baby] shoulder!

Poor girls! The things they had to endure during their photo shoot!

Who am I kidding! They had a blast! 


Cousins!


We had fun on our shoot, even though I had to push the girls into it, and keep Vic from "wrecking" all of the poses, we got some great shots to remember the summer of 2011!
