Mother's Day

Snippets from Mother's Day weekend.

J and his girlfriend L made some delicious cookies to bring over to Sissy's house for dinner. Er, for dessert. We haven't stooped to eating cookies for dinner. 



In between batches going in and out of the oven, I got them to pose for me on the back porch. The light was perfect.
J knows what kind of photos I like to take so he started goofing around with L.

She's a good sport and goofs around right back with him.
They are very comfortable in front of the camera. 

Every year for Mother's Day, J and K give me the gift of a photo shoot.

An afternoon when I can shoot and they promise to smile.
We drove over the river and through the woods to the far reaches of who-knows-where and found a beautiful location by a reservoir.
Found a fantastically big wooden door.

Looks like something out of Jack and the Beanstalk, don't you think?
When we got home, I set up the tripod, got the remote trigger, and we set out to get some mother and son and daughter shots.
Not too shabby.
A more accurate portrayal of family life.
