It’s been an unseasonably cold fall. A fall full of cold days, rain and clouds. This season is typically my favorite and I’ve felt a sadness wash over me because I’ve been unable to enjoy it to the fullest.
But today, today was different.
And we got out. We enjoyed it. It was captured.
Captured in my heart, in our minds and on camera.
First we tried the train track.
The baby kept putting rocks in his mouth, Zane would never look at me and Nick was growing very impatient of this torture I was subjecting him to.
So then we moved to the river. Not so carefully we tromped through the muddy earth to make our way to the mighty Missouri river.
I captured brotherly love at its finest.
And because everyone was in a good mood by the river I attempted a threesome where they’d all be smiling beautifully at my camera at the same time.
What was I thinking? That’s nearly impossible. And sometimes the candid shots are so much more beautiful.
And last but not least, my favorite capture of the day.
This is what I get when I ask, “okay boys, smile at me”.
Oh my heart, what a beautiful day with a beautiful family and beautiful memories now captured for a lifetime.
Moments captured with my Nikon D40.
