I play coed softball with Pete, and during this past season, he asked if I'd take some family photos of them so they'd have some new ones to frame. I suggested Jerusalem Mill in Kingsville, because there is not a single bad spot on those grounds for photos of any kind be it families, children, or engagement sessions. We met there on a gorgeous fall day albeit a little breezy, but with a perfect setting sun, gorgeous grounds, and great looking family, I knew it would be a good session. We started off across the street behind one of the caretakers houses in a big open field.
When I asked them to cover their eyes, I couldn't help but giggle because it was so cute!
Then we made our way back across the road to finish the rest of the session in another open field, in an open-wood structure, and in front of a blacksmith shop. I also wanted to make sure I got some of just Pete and Jackie, following some of just the kids having fun laughing and jumping. These kids were very well behaved, and were awesome at doing what I was asking them to do. It was so easy!
I loved how the sun was coming in at the right time while we were in this field; just enough!
I'm not exactly sure what this structure is or was supposed to be, but it's been this way for a long time, and I love getting shots in it! The kids had fun posing in it. And those haystacks they sat on just happened to be there; even better! I love the bright red doors on the front of the blacksmith house too!
These 2 are so adorable!
And sassy! Look at Mandi sticking her leg out!
We ended the session down by the stream; I couldn't think of a better place to end at. Although some of the rocks were tricky and slippery, everyone made it up and down ok, and I'm happy they wanted to stand right by the water. And the kids weren't tired of smiling yet either! See what I mean about gorgeous backdrops here? I had a fantastic time with this family, and I can't wait for the next session!
