Since we moved (back) to Florida (almost) four years ago, I have had my heart SET on a photo session in an orange grove.
And when I found out that there was a fabulous u-pick grove just north of where my sister lives in southwest florida, it was the perfect afternoon "activity" to throw into our weekend adventure (while visiting her & her boyfriend this past weekend!).
I'm not going to lie - as much as I tell my clients not to stress over their photo sessions - it IS stressful. Or at least it always is for me. Which is why we I don't end up coordinating family sessions for ourselves all that often. ;)
I am so so SOOOO glad that we made the time & effort for this one though!
It's been a treat for me to be on the "client" side of things (somewhat) - and see what my sister put together in the form of "peeks" from our session - I seriously could not be MORE THRILLED with how she captured US, right now. ;)
You can see LOTS more photos from our shoot on my sister's blog - Kimberly Joy Photography - HERE. And there are even a few not shown on the blog, on her facebook fan page HERE.
Towards the end of our afternoon, I grabbed my own camera and snapped a few too - here are just a couple...
(and my sister, Kimmie & Jereme!)...
We came home with a BIG bucketful of oranges (=Fresh OJ as a bonus the next morning), & TONS of photos that will keep me busy editing for quite a while. AND I can't wait to do it again NEXT orange season.
