The important thing is that they are all happy together... And Mary's hair looks good ;p
I'm not going to tell anybody about the difficult time John had while taking the photo above...
They really are a cute couple.
One of Marinas knicknames is Nina, she had a lot of fun gathering acorn tops while Mary kept telling her to "stop picking things up, it's gross", so I got a quick shot before she had to put them down.
She really does have a cute smile.
Loved the light that morning. The photo above & below are my favorites of the day.
We were at the park for a long time & by the time they left, Nina was pretty tired. We had a good visit & it made me think of when they get married (or engaged), and I already can't wait to see them again.
PERSONAL NOTE: Seeing some of the photos from this session makes me want to critique my own photos. Part of taking photos of family (I believe), is to be comfortable with what you're doing to gain confidence & to make improvements from previous sessions, but to certainly learn from your mistakes. That being said, the photo of them walking away above, is one that I need to improve on. The sun was too high & I should have taken it where it had more shadow & it was behind them.
In the photo below is Carly, my youngest niece, (from this sister of mine). She got her own post & it's next.
Love the look on Nina's face.
