We loaded up in two cars. My aunt and uncle with my cousin’s kids in one and me and my kids in another. We headed out to a beautiful sunflower field in the blazing heat. We took the dog. Oh yes we did. She only vomited once (why do I always have car-sick dogs?) I even gave her a bath and tied on her bright blue kerchief. And the smiles she gave me were probably more of a result of panting due to heat stroke than happy dog delight, but I’ll take what I can get.
I toughed it out with the dog because I went with a specific goal in mind. I wanted a large portrait style gallery wrap of all my kids and Hazel to hang at the end of my hall. This was my vision. If you have a particular spot you want to fill with a specific size portrait, you should always tell your photographer. Don’t just take the chance that it might happen. Be specific about what you want and, if you know, where you want to hang your art.
The kids were troopers. I had thought I might jump in a few of the shots with them (I had my cousin with me to pass the camera to), but I was sweat-soaked after doing all their shots and I gave up on all my hard hair work and popped it up in a clip almost immediately.
It was all worth it. I’m in love with these cutie-pies.
