This family could not have been sweeter! They were one of my very first "professional" shoots and I feel so honored that they trusted in me, as a "new" photographer, to take their pictures. Pete's mother was in visiting for the week from San Diego and it couldn't have been a better time to get some pictures with her and not only her son, but her two grandsons! During this session we managed to have both both jump in a muddy puddle and cover their legs and shoes in black mud (in which case they wanted a picture of all their matching shoes!), lots of tears and hiding as the little one is terrified of the camera, AND find hundreds of little baby toads hopping around. Yes, the little boys were quite excited about those!!! All in all, for my first shoot, it left me feeling confident and excited about what was to come. Thank you, Ridge Family!
