Early release day for the kids. Took them & the bikes to my favorite running lake, as I have been eyeing a possible card locale for a few weeks now. A new spot at the lake – in a construction area.
So, we rode our bikes the 1mile to this spot. I didn’t think that the hardhats would still be there @4pm. Argh. I thought about crossing the barrier anyway, but with equipment and cranes I realized that was a stupid idea, and most likely I’d be kicked out anyway.
Lucky for me my oldest packed a bag of props (she was excited for this shoot) and found a cruddy old spot down by the water’s edge. It was muddy and mucky, but she was SO excited about setting up the shot that I went with it.
I got a cute one of her …
I am so proud of her for thinking ahead and ‘seeing the shot’. As she described it, “ It’s perfect Mom. Dark, spooky and dirty background with fresh and lively children.”
