family photo shoot - take 2

After my first family photo shoot I realized just how much PRACTICE I need! So when I decided to take another crack at the family shoot, I was lucky enough to have willing participants in the Reeves family (they also happen to be related to me, so that helps...)

We tried a new park out, and while it was a beautiful backdrop it was, um, interesting. First the park is a dog haven, so there were lots of special "presents" waiting for our feet. Second, there was a large smelly dumpster (?) near the entrance. But Sean, Rachel & Kensington wandered all over the park with me searching for that fabulous shot - thanks guys!

Here are some shots:

here's the dumpster - they were game to take some photos in front of it, until the stench overcame us all. I like the blue background though.

ah yes, the infamous vintage tint.

I'm still editing the photos, but so far I'm pretty happy with them - I'm always looking for more practice, though...
