the circus came into town! goodness i love this family (their amazing camping session from last year!) and knew that we had to kick it up a notch this year so i created a family session full of vintage carnival flair! we had ring toss, ball toss, custom made cookies and so much fun! it was a blast putting together all the pieces for this session – why yes, i made a forty foot paper daisy chain! the kids were so excited when they showed up to the carnival that they wanted to start playing but did a great job refraining while we finished setting up*
*originally we set up about an hour before they arrived. but then we watched as the large shadow from the tree encroached on the setup (and you know that i love backlit images and flare so the tree shadow wasn’t going to cut it). so with fifteen minutes before their arrival, we took apart and re setup the entire carnival. in 90 degree heat. but we rocked it and as soon as the family arrived, we were just putting the final touches on it. phew
anyway, i hope that you enjoy the sneak peek as much as i enjoyed putting it all together! seriously. way. too. much. fun!
