Last summer, one of my favorite sessions took place but I wasn’t able to blog about it because it was surprise! Now, the surprise is over and everyone’s seen the photos except you! So I thought I’d share – I just loved this entire session.


Two brothers. One secret fishing spot. Bubblegum. Soda pop and an incredible mom behind all the genius makings of this shoot.









“I went on down to my fav’rit fishin’ hole
Baby grab me a pole an’ line
Throw my pole on in, caught a nine poun’ catfish
Now ya know I brought him home for supper time

Provin’ any fish bites if ya got good bait
Or here’s a little tip that I would like to relate
Many fish bites if ya got good bait
I’ma goin’ fishin’, yes I’m goin’ fishin…”

Laura Lovegrove Awesome work, it amazes me how you capture everything in your pics. I love looking at mine from 6 years ago. I think its time for another session, family is bigger and so many changes have happened over the years.

Chris It was such a perfect day and I was overly impressed with the contortionists training Gillian must have gone thru before this shot! I mean seriously, not only was she in flip flops, leaning in a bush on the shore of a slimey lake, but she was in HIGH SOULS flip flops! Loved all the shots, still love them all to this day! Best of all i loved when Gillian asked me and I quote “dont get mad, but can you get them…umm Wife beater shirts” Lol, still makes me laugh! Wonderful memories!
