What a beautiful day for a hike in Yosemite to meet with these two beautiful California teachers. This was my first hike back from maternity leave and they kicked my butt, but it was so worth it. Look at this view from Artist's Point in Yosemite. It looks pretty similar to Tunnel View but without the crowds. We only saw a handful of other hikers on this trail, even with the trailhead right at the Tunnel View parking lot. Didn't get the majestic sunset we were looking for, but the haze at least made the light soft and the hike in May bearable.
It seems pretty cliche to write “I love family sessions” - because well, of course I am going to say that here, in a blog. But really, some family sessions are just easier than others. Maybe it is me, and maybe it is the family, but sometimes it is both and you can feel that every thing is working just right. Doesn’t hurt that it was just a super lovely day in Lemoore. The air was clean and fresh after some much needed rain, and there were fall clouds floating by in the perfectly blue evening sky. Ah, maybe I had just gotten more sleep than normal? No, I know that isn’t the case as baby B still thinks he needs to wake up every 2-3 hours screaming for Mama. Tip to anyone who is ever going to hire a family photographer. The more silly you can be with your family, the better the photos… so be a downright silliest!!
