Yes, we actually got back out there and did more family photos because we had so much fun the first time. Okay, maybe I was the one having the most fun … but, hey, I deserve a little fun too!
We have this very special little place we like to head to … our first photos were taken there when I was pregnant with Eliza. You can read all about our adventure there the first visit here (scroll down). And now we are having all new, fun adventures there … look at the bottom of ALL these photos (I know, there are A LOT!) for the story about Adeline and our magic horses.
I always let Adeline pick some of the props and session ideas … so here is the Argus camera again – she’s very fond of this one.
Adeline likes to pretend that there are magical, invisible horses that take up residence in the barn and we spend a good deal of time walking the horses around, giving them grain and laying down in the grass to rest next to Sophie (the mama horse). I captured a few photos of Addie walking Sophie down the trail – hands up in the air holding the lead line. That evening I told her I could not wait to upload the photos because sometimes the very special beings that are magical like Sophie will appear in photos after they’ve been taken. Although they appear to be invisible to the casual observer, some cameras are actually able to freeze the magic and we can see on the photo what only she and I can see in our minds while playing with our enchanted wild horses. So, while Adeline was sleeping … I made this super cheesy, one handed hack Photoshop job I did with Eliza sleeping and nursing in my arms (please don’t think this is a serious composite – but merely something to make a five year old giddy).
