Rain Rain Go Away because The Leylands Want to Play

Meet the Leylands...One of my favorite families

This session almost got rained out.  I was just about a minute away from their driveway when the downpour began.  

As I maneuvered through the heavy rain, I imagined having to cancel the session (insert my pouty face here).  

I didn't want to show up at their door, see all the kids dressed perfectly, and have to tell Terry that we needed to reschedule.  

So, I thought, let's wait it out a bit.

And not long after I arrived, the rain stopped and the clouds rolled away.  But the humidity hung around.  UGH

So we knew it was going to be a damp session but we decided to give it a whirl anyways. 

Terry, the Pinterest guru, created the adorable floral headbands worn by her granddaughters.  She had everyone dressed to match and I was so impressed!

Time to head outdoors (did I mention Hank was in the kitchen whipping up some homemade salsa and spaghetti sauce?) Oh, yeah...

LOVE this family!

We decided on some areas of their back yard to capture the smiles and personalities of their 4 grandchildren.

Aren't they simply ADORABLE?

Then we ventured down to a local barn to shoot some "country" images.  The barn door was the perfect backdrop!

And we were photobombed a few times by the horses!!! :)

I don't think Terry and Hank anticipated the entire family posing for a picture but it happened.  There was this old tree stump just sitting there....

it was the most perfect spot to pose the family!  And Levi counted 150 rings in that stump!  What an old tree! 

Impromptu, unexpected, and spur of the moment = 1 very awesome family photo

As I finish up my edits and retouches of this session, I smile knowing that this family loves deeply and lives life to the fullest.  (and eats really good pasta)

I am so blessed to know each of them and get the opportunity to capture a time in their lives when the grandchildren are still young.

Godetevi le fotografs, Leylands!
