It all works out in the end! :)

Jessica and Matt, and their handsome boys are always fun to photograph! They are a playful family, and always up for anything.

This year was pretty funny, in that when we met for their shoot, everything was working against us! Jessica had pre-scouted out a fun location for their session and we put it on the calendar and we were all excited for the day of their shoot. It happened to be crazy hot that day. So hot that I wore shorts to the shoot {I hadn't wore shorts in over 6 years. Yes, you read that right. :) These white legs were happy to be out!}. So, not only was it hot, but it turned out that there was a concert at the park we had planned to shot at, and it looked like there were close to a thousand people there, and NO parking. So I met Matt at another location and he shuttled me down, then he went back to park and had to run down in the heat to meet up with us. All the while, Jessica and her boys are waiting for us in the heat. We start shooting, and always chipper Gavin just didn't want to have his picture taken! It was not like him, but he seriously just wasn't in the mood for pictures. We were jumping and shouting at Gavin to look and smile, and everyone was just getting hotter, and hotter. And all of the cute settings that Jessica had been excited to use were covered with people, so they were pretty much unavailable. Needless to say, I finally called it. It was as if everything was working against us, so we did something extremely unusual, and we rescheduled the shoot for two nights later.

And what do you know, two nights later the weather was much better, the crowds were gone, and the beautiful park was all ours! :) And her boys did great! {And maybe there was a little candy bribery involved somewhere. ;) }

Here are some favorites...
