I got connected with the Burroughs family through my friend Irene. They live across the street from each other, but get this. . . Jeff is from my very, very small hometown! What a small world! Up until now I've only photographed people that I know, so I was a little worried about the kids warming up to me. Boy, was I wrong! These kids were soooo sweet and silly and they acted like we were friends from the minute I walked in the door! Then I talked with their parents and I found out why their kids were so nice! What a lovely family!!
I did have some issues with the sun. There wasn't a ton of shade for me to work in and I was having a hard time positioning them so they didn't get an eye full of light. It was definitely a good learning experience for me. And even with the sun in their faces. . .they're ADORABLE!
These were some of my favorites. . .
Thank you to the Burroughs family for being so patient and kind!
