The Brown Family / by Lexilu Photos

I had the opportunity to shoot a senior this summer,  and in the course of planning his session I found out that he loves to kayak.   So, I planned his shoot in two sessions, one in the summer, and one in the fall when the colors would be perfect on the lake where I planned to shoot him at. 

During the planning I thought how perfect if, while his family was there, they all came ready for a mini session of sorts...and so it goes.  The Brown Fall Family session was planned. 

Little did I know that the day we planned it was the father's day to help on the farm where they were busy harvesting crops.  But Ike, true to his sense of family, took time away to get in these precious last moments with his children while they were still all together.  It was bitter sweet knowing that his oldest graduates and heads off to college next year.  It instills the importance of making your time count...and always keeping family first.
