It’s always fun to document families participating in activities that are special and dear to their hearts. This family has a grandmother who was a pianist so music is something they appreciate and enjoy doing together. It was a joy to see the kids strum the guitar, play drums with tree branches, sit down to the piano and even pick up a little recorder. Yes, I can see future musicians in the making! This sweet family had so much fun not only playing musical instruments, but also reading a book, climbing a tree house, and marching around the woods. I was so honored and happy to document all the special moments between this adorable little clan. So much takes place in and around the home that I loved being there with them to capture on camera the everyday little things they do together. And gorgeous sunlight streaming through the tree branches never hurts either!
