Sometimes the sun is glorious and makes everything around just magic. I took some pictures recently for a long time friend of mine. They were traditional portraits which aren't usually my thing but I love this friend and opportunities to have whole families gather, even both sets of grandparents, are so rare! When the session ended the baby was sent to bed but the older kids (and adults!) were sent to play and I was able to stick around and capture some of the family lifestyle images that I love.
