Rayna in the Woods. A personal post.

One of my goals for 2016 is to spend more time photographing my own family on a regular basis.  I mean, trust me -- I definitely snap plenty of them with my iPhone, but my grownup camera barely made an appearance around them last year at all.   It's time for me to get back to practicing my craft on the people who inspire me the most.   So for the rest of the year, I'm keeping my camera with me and available on a regular basis rather than packing it up in between sessions with clients.   

This past weekend, while on a getaway to visit friends in Florida, I fell in love with the way the woods behind their house looked just before sunset.  I took our kids out into the thick of it one night to snap some photos, and nabbed these shots of Rayna (the oldest of my two, who will be five in a few months).  I love the way she just becomes so wild and free when we're out exploring in nature, totally at home with herself ...
