Nature Walk Photo Session

Our home school group had pictures today and I took the kids. They said that if we did not take Friday classes to be there before 9:00 so we got there. We got in line and they kept taking kids in front of us because "they needed to get to class." They also were using a photographer that runs $25 for a 5x7 and 8 wallets. So, after we waited over 40 minutes I decided to leave and take the kids photos myself and save $75.00.

In Madison, there is a nature walk that is paved. It is about 2 miles long and runs through a nature path area with a creek on one side and a cattle ranch on the other. The boys found their cowboy hats the other day and have been playing cowboys in them. They did not want to take the hats today but I made them "just carry them." I knew the area where the cattle ranch is would be perfect to get some shots with their hats on. They put them on and it was funny to watch them. Suddenly they were bow legged and talked like cowboys and stood like cowboys and spit like cowboys. I really love these shots.

A Professional photographer could not have done better!!! The pictures are awesome! I would have those pics made larger and hang them on the wall!

Oh my goodness!!!! What great pics and the scenery is priceless!!! We don't have the gorgeous little creeks and trails in Orlando! It reminds me of Little House on the Prairie! I want to move to Madison, now!

Great photos...I found you by way of Balancing Beauty...etc blog. I see you are in AL and I read that you were in Madison for photos. That's where my son and daughter in law live! I also see that you were asking about Homemade Gourmet. I wondered if you've considered Southern Living at HOME as a home based business? If you are redecorating, it might be fun to get the discount! I've got info if you want it.

Really great pictures! I love candid pictures so much better than the still "school pictures" with the ugly, mottled blue background.

Blessings!
