On our way home from Flagstaff we stopped at the little picnic area along Wet Beaver Creek. I loved introducing Adam, Amy and June to the world of hidden treasures like this place that can be found just off the highway (in what looks like cactus and brush as far as the eye can see) if you know where to look.
We sat beside the creek in the shade of large Sycamore and Cottonwood trees. Put our toes in the surprisingly cold water, and ate chips and salsa, which you can see on June's face in some of these photos.
I've been thinking about trying to start my own portrait business for a while, and have been inching in that direction. Amy also wants to join in with the project and she has a great eye for taking photos, as well as maybe a little more business sense than me...? So I'm hopeful. I'm also practicing with Lightroom, and discovered a new way to export photos. I really like it and I'd be interested in opinions about it.
I got some precious mother-daughter photos of Amy and June.
I love this one of little daughter feet with mommy feet splashing in the creek.
Here is a similar one of June splashing with her Dad.
I love being around Adam and Amy for a lot of reasons, but one of the big ones is how much they seem to like being around each other.
We tried to do some family portraits. June would only sit still for a moment, but there were a couple of nice family photos.
Amy got a couple of nice shots of Chris and I too.
This was a great place to sit, and a great place to take pictures. I haven't quite mastered resizing the photos for the blog without losing a little of the image quality. I'm working on it though and I can only get better. If any of you readers are interested in doing a photo shoot to bolster my portfolio let me know...
p.s. Amy and Adam wearing matching outfits was just a coincidence.
