impromptu session

Out where we live there are still a ton of open fields.  However the issue with fields such as the one I used for my mini quickie session with my girls (out in minooka) is that if it is untilled land (in june!) chances are some development is going to be headed this way (sigh).  There are all these mini areas of wild flowers all over land tracts in the area so I took the girls out this evening to take advantage of the shoulder high beautiful yellow blooms that made some fields explode in yellow delights.    Also, it isn’t often where I have two willing parties to the photographic purpose.  Not often at all.  🙂

Thanks for stopping by.  No children were tortured in the making of the following images.  🙂

I love the bit of motion in her swooshing skirt.  Adds to the moment that I captured here.



this little light of mine...

The light on her face just makes me happy






Thanks for stopping by!! 


Edited to include a song I heard today on XRT and it took me back.  Far Gone & Out…love love JAMC.  Love.
