When I imagined the spring mini sessions at Boyd's Orchard I was so nervous we would have nasty weather or the blooms wouldn't be out, but with the help of the owners at Boyd's Orchard, we picked a date that we thought would be perfect. Then we just had to leave it to mother nature. Wow...did she pull through for us. It was absolutely perfect. It was a beautiful day and all the apple trees were in full bloom. That, along with these beautiful kiddos, made the day exactly how I had imagined. If you haven't been to Boyd's Orchard, you have to go. It is so much fun for families. There's a playground with huge slides for the kids and you can even go out and pick your own strawberries, apples, pumpkins, peaches and more. In the fall they have a different "festival" each weekend, as well as bon fires and hay rides! I can't wait for us to have our own kids to share this with. Oh and did I mention how nice the owners are? I love them! Okay...here are some of my favorites from the day.
Can you look at this picture without smiling? They drove all the way from Dayton, OH and I'm so glad they did.
Uuummm...yeah...I just want to squeeze those cheeks. We already have his 6 month pictures scheduled and we have big plans for capturing all those rolls!
Diana and Clayton are wonderful. Can you believe she just had a baby a few short months ago?
Here's another one of my little Parker's :) Do you know how excited I was when they pulled out this hat? And look at those eyes!!!
And the scrunchy nose!
The last couple mini sessions we did together into one big session. They drove all the way from Louisa! I went to school with Bianca and Ashley (and they brought Leigh Anne along to play :)) and according to MJ, this meant we were as old as dinosaurs! I loved seeing them and I hope this means I will get to see them much more as the years go by! We had such a great time. The kiddos were so much fun. We seriously just played the entire time. I hope they had as much fun as I did!
If you look in her eyes you can see me :)
I love this. We were trying to get a natural picture. So, Ashley was trying to talk to him and get him to ignore me. I think it worked :)
You know I was excited when I saw their red hair! They were so good. I know they were anxious to see some of the pictures and I hope they love them! The gallery is almost finished for you to see all of them!
She was such a little model! I hope she grows up loving this red hair as much as I do!
So, he got out of the car saying I was NOT going to take any pictures of him, but he didn't seem to mind so much when I let him run around the orchard and then gave him a lollipop in the end :)
A fabulous end to a beautiful day!
