I headed out to Lake Pleasant with the Cantelme family last week. I have to say that a couple years ago, I would have been so nervous because “where are the cool walls?” and fun things to use as props and backdrops in my photos? But the more I grow as an artist, the more I prefer the “natural” look of just the family hanging out and beautiful natural scenery. Also don’t get me wrong, I love my minis, but these photos are also why I prefer hour sessions. It was so relaxing and so fun just to hang out and snap photos at a more leisurely pace!
So we started out at the top with a pretty neat view and then worked our way down to the water and then the dock. I had never seen a craw daddy in real life, but the kids made sure I found out what one was. Holy smokes. Reason #732 I am ok without going into open bodies of water. Thankfully they are not just ok with it, but enjoy it, because we got some great shots!
Thank you, Cantelmes! Although I’m not sure I can hang, but I’d spend time with you guys any day!
